    I like the blue! I think dishes will look nicer on blue too.

    Regarding renting vs. buying – I was shocked at that at first too! But really what you’re paying for with renting is the labor. Cleaning, ironing, storing (storing lots of big tablecloths on hangers can take room!), bringing them to the site/coordinating times, putting them on the tables, taking them off at the end of the night and spot cleaning, etc etc. Once I looked at it that way it made more sense. It all depends on how much help you have day-of, if you’re close to your venue, etc.

    Agree that the price of buying vs. renting is a little crazy!  LOL you are overthinking this, but I have over though every single thing about my wedding so I think it’s normal! I say blue linens with grey napkinds because the sea of grey tables does seem blah as you describe.

    P.S. You should add a poll!

    I prefer the gray tablecloths with blue napkins and chair sashes because I think the gray being more subtle will allow the blue to look good, as opposed to the blue being a little overpowering in the tablecloths.

    it’s hard to choose.  i guess it depends on more that just “what colour”.  what does your venue look like?  how do you visualize the room?  blue table cloths will brighten it up where the grey ones will be more neutral.  how much colour “pop” do you want?  what theme are you going with?

    Being the practical soul that I am, I would use white tablecloths with blue runners , grey sashes and napkins.I think it will be easier to sell the white tablecloths.

    Glad it could help you get a better idea. There is an option for the sashes, and they have a platinum color. I kind of preferred the blue tablecovers,silver sashes and silver napkins option myself! 🙂
