After going back and forth w/colors and centerpieces I am 100% sure I am going with IVORY,PURPLE, and SILVER. I like the look of purple tablecloths and I was thinking of matching them with ivory chair covers and purple sashes. However, I really want up lighting and it seems that uplighting looks better in a room with light tablecloths. Would uplighting look better w/ivory tablecloths?
Also, the centerpieces I want to go with are purple so it may be to much. Are purple centerpieces on a purple table too much?
Is it too much to have purple brides maids AND tablecloths?
Any ideas on putting these colors together?

I think if you use silver vases with purple flowers on the darker tablecloths it will break it up enough. You can also use an ivory table runner if you want to break up the colors more with a glass vase. I really love the combo of Purple, ivory, and silver and can’t wait to see your mockups.
I have seen several weddings with uplighting with the darker table cloths and I don’t think the tablecloths made much of a difference. I know that I did notice the uplighting more on lighter walls than on darker walls.

Hmm, I would go with the ivory linens and do the purple runner, but that’s just me! There was a wedding in the venue I’m using and they had purple uplights and white linens and chairs with purple runners and it was GORGEOUS! (google the patio at archmere images and it’s on the first page) everything will look purple-y but not TOO much so! Very classy with the purple flowers! IMO the ivory linen w/ the purple runner will be perfection. Good luck!!! 🙂

I have the same color pallet for my wedding as well. I am planning on doing ivory table clothes and a purple runner or overlay. My Bridesmaid or Best Man are in purple as well and I also have purple chair sashes So I dont want to overkill purple. I think Im going to try to do afew test runs and buy a few matierials to try out. If you are doing purple uplighting I would prob stick with more ivory though I think if you did purple it would make the room feel dark. I’d love to see pictures of you wedding when its all done. good luck.
