So I have been super torn about what color to have my table cloths, napkins, and chair covers. I’m making runners and sashes out of this fabric http://freespiritfabric.com/fabric-collections/bijoux/swatches/A/large/HB09Ice.jpg and the vases I’m using are Ivory along with my dress. I purchased fake versions of the flowers I’m using and went to my venue to see what it would look like(I didn’t buy enough). I want Ivory everything so badly, but White is free. Everything expense wise is spinning out of control and I just can’t bring myself to spend more.
I’d love to hear opinions. Keep in mind the clear vase will be Ivory too and the flowers will be a bit fuller.

I would go with the ivory ones for now and hunt craiglist/sales/etc and see if you can get a really amazing price on the ivory ones. You can always change, right?

If white is free and ivory will cost you extra- so white! Everything looks great in your photo and I imagine the only one who will notice that everything is white and not ivory is you.

I’d say, if it isn’t in the budget go with white and dim the lights – no one will know the difference. If you can afford it though, do ivory if it’s what you guys want. Though I don’t understand why ivory costs more than white… usually venues give you the choice of those two.

I say ivory because of your dress. I’m not sure what white linens will look like compared to your ivory dress. Bummer that they cost more, though!

Good news! I ask the catering manager about it and she said she’ll do ivory at no extra cost.
I love her!
