rmartin22 :  That is a great venue! I would suggest connecting the warmth of your venue to your centerpieces: candles, foliage and lavender flowers. Different shades of purple would be shown with the tablecloths; white dinner plates with “silver” charger plates, and white napkins:

I’m doing ivory , purples, silver and a touch of gold. I decided to just use purples as accents. I’ll attach a few inspirations I have saved.

I did not like purple linens  on the tables when we tried it , it felt looked cheap. But I’m going to ado a few lilac roses in with the ivory hydrangeas on the tables.

Since your venue has a warm, rustic look, I’d suggest going with more natural shades of purple. Think Heather, Lavender, Lilac, mauve, plum, etc., not the bright purple dendrobium orchids or electric purple. Stick to all white linens to keep it clean and provide a good canvas for your accents. Maybe rethink the centerpiece? That one seems to have quite a few elements and it can look a bit busy (also, consider what will happen to the centerpieces after the wedding). And this is personal preference but I really dislike submerged faux flowers. Maybe do a candle in the middle surrounded by 2 inches of swirled purple/white sand? Or fresh flowers somewhere? Good luck!

I completely agree that muted tones of lavender and heather will be a great match with your venue. I also used purples and found that wine tones felt more sophisticated to me. No snark meant at all but what kind of help are you looking for? Feedback on the centerpiece? Flower ideas? Help with a vision? Happy to help if you tell us more what you’re looking for in terms of support
