- Wedding: August 2008
I’m hoping the hive will be able to help me.
My wedding colour is mostly a rich red, with black and gold. We are doing a cocktail reception during the afternoon. The reception will be held in an historic old firestation that has been rehabbed to an event place. My problem is trying to figure out the linens for the few tables that we will have. Our venue only holds 75 max. and we will have only 5 cruiser tables. Three high top (taking 90" linens) and two low top (taking 120" linens). I am thinking of renting black linens for the tables. I was also planning on making table runners for these tables from gold silk taffeta. My centrepieces will be made of red flowers (orchids, dahlias, spider mums, etc).
My questions for the hive are:
1. Would gold table runners look good with black linens? Or would squares work better?
2. Any hints on how to make these (i.e., dimensions) for either runners or squares?
3. Should I scrapped the concept and just leave it simple with just black (or red) linens?
I know, I’m super indecisive. Thanks everyone!
