Hi everyone! I’m new to the site and i’m so thankful i found it! so many great suggestions/ideas.
anyway…. our colors are black and white with accents of cornflower blue and bright green. we have decided (at this point) to go w/ white chair covers with a black sash and black tableclothes. i was hoping to add a colored table runner to add more of the blue and green. however, our decorator suggested it might be too busy. myfiance is not such a fan of the black and white patterned tableclothes- i am in love with them. so i thought maybe if we did a black tablecloth i could still add on a black adn white patterened table runner and then our centerpiece would add color. i’m just afraid that an all black tablecloth would be too much black. or has anyone perhaps seen any black and blue patterened or black and green or even blue adn green patterened tablecloths? we are having about 500 guests and planning on 50 or a bit more tables so the cost factor is also killing us, as well.
if anyone has any links to pictures or ideas i would greatly appreciate it! there’s a # of ways we can take this and i just don’t want to go over the top or do anything too tacky either. but i can’t make a decision to save my life either!
thanks for any and all help!!

Our wedding was Black, White & Turquoise. Our tables had white floor length table cloths with a black overlay. We left the chairs uncovered because fortunately the chairs were black as well, but we dressed them up with a 4" satin turqouise ribbon that we tied around the chair. Lastly, our centerpieces which I hand painted were all turquoise, black and white (each different), it tied in nicely together. I am still waiting for pictures, so I can’t share, sorry 🙁
Does your reception venue offer any linens for free? Can you make runners for the tables versus buying them? Can you go with a chivalry chair versus covering chairs (you might be suprised on the price difference? Is there a theme to your wedding for the patterned table clothes?

thanks so much for the reply!!! your wedding decor sounds absolutely stunning! our venue does offer white tableclothes but they would hardly cover even a couple inches off the table. we can make the table runners ourselves which would help save on costs. and i’ve found chair covers as low as $1.25 that i can rent so even that is not that bad at all. i’m looking for a black and white pattern that my fiance will like. then maybe we can just do a black and white tablecloth that way it’s not too much black but we won’t have the addl cost of also having to add a runner. thanks for your response!!
