So my wedding colors are aqua (David’s Bridal Pool Blue) and yellow. In my head, I was going to have lovely aqua tablecloths, with yellow floral centerpieces. But sadly, this is not to be. My venue offers a turquoise blue that is a shade and a half darker than the Pool Blue swatch, or an aqua that is way greener than the Pool Blue. They also have a nice lemon yellow color, that I like, but then the blue will be nowhere to be seen.
So what do I do now? The darker turquoise? The non-matching aqua? The lemon yellow? (And if the yellow..how do I bring the blue into the table? Are blue hydrangeas close enough to Pool Blue?)
Please vote and comment below! Thanks!

I say go with the darker turquoise. If it matches other than being darker, no one will notice.

go with the darker color. first of all no one will notice. second, adding different shades of the same color adds depth and texture to the overall look. i think it’ll look even better than if you matched it perfectly.

I like lemon yellow tablecloths with blue hydrangeas. Dark tablecloths seem to darken the whole room sometimes–of course, it depends on the room and just how dark they are. I think either option will work great, though, and nobody but you will know you hadn’t planned it that way originally.

Do your chairs match your color better? Maybe you can get those closer to the color and have a neutral table cloth…

The chairs are a simple off-white with gold-tone frame. We’re not doing chair covers or sashes or anything, so the table itself will be the only colorful/decorated element.

Ah..then I’d go for the darker turquoise.
