Black chairs sound perfect to me.  They tend to “disappear” a little bit more in the photos, if men are in dark suits, and a lot of the women might be wearing black.

That being said, if you would rather have white tablecloths, I think you should have them.  It doesn’t matter if your dress matches the tablecloths…  I love the look of crisp white tablecloths.

I actually don’t think white and ivory look bad together. If there is a champagne runner it will look like different neutral shades. Depending on your centerpieces I think it could look really crisp and beautiful. I also agree you should not worry about the linens matching your dress. Just go with whatever you find visually appealing. 

I’m having a hard time visualizing black chairs with ivory table clothes, but that doesn’t mean it won’t look great. I might put a touch of black, maybe some damask, on the actual table to balance the dark and light.

I think it actually sounds really elegant! I never though about using colored chair covers…that being said, sjbee’s idea of adding damask would be really pretty!
