So Im trying to put my table linens together, I already purchased eggplant polyester table cloths. I have Satin white chair covers that I will be borrowing ( yay free!) So now I am trying to figure out a runner, napkin and chair sash. I am thinking ivory for the color. I want polyester napkins because who wants to wipe there face and hands with a satin napkin lol. Satin Table runner or possibly crinkle taffata and satin chair sashes.
do you think the polyester napkin and table cloth will clash with the satin? I am having a rustic glam wedding and the mixing of fabrics might not look to bad?
what do you think about the white satin chair covers with a ivory sash? should I just splurge and rent ivory chair covers?

I would go with taffata, I don’t think taffata and satin will look bad at all together! And if you get the crinkled, it’ll add a nice texture, too!
That being said, I don’t think the nakpins are even an issue. I have satin sashes, & tablecloths, and we will most likely be doing sheer organza runners, and polyester napkins.
I agree, satin napkins would be weird.

@jenilynevette: Thanks. I know some people have frowned upon the ideas of mixing fabric types when I have told them. I also like the crinkle taffata better as well. It is a bit more expensive then the satin runner though

Personally I like the idea of mixing textures and fabric – then it’s not like you are drowining in a sea of satin…

I can say I’m not a big fan of Satin to begin with… I would’nt use any satin if I didnt get the satin chair covers to borrow.

@Dolcebabe: With these colors and the style you’re looking to achieve, I would keep it to no more than two contrasting fabrics. The polyester (tablecloths and napkins) will be accented nicely by the satin. However, throwing taffeta into the mix is a bit much; the combination of poly, satin, and taffeta will start to look a bit sloppy, especially because the same color in different fabrics begins to look mismatched. (Not to mention you’re considering eggplant, white, and ivory in various materials; that could end up looking more like four or five different colors than three.)
If I were you, I’d stick with the current poly tablecloths, napkins, and satin chair covers. If you add any more accents – ie table runner or chair sash – make sure they’re either satin or poly, but not a third kind of material. It will look more polished and cohesive this way. =]
