@EmilytheSecond:  I don’t think you need more on the tables. If you want to splurge, I would get pretty napkins in blue or yellow just to add a little color. But I don’t think you need to do it if it is out of your budget.

What about using paper doilies instead of a charger plate to add something to the place setting?

If you like you can write the guests names on the doilies to also act as a placecard.

This looks especially nice if you do have the clear plates on the table. The guests can carry the plate to the buffet. I know some people don’t like that idea but it’s really no big deal. Either way, the doilies will work. The doilies can be the color of your choice.

Another idea is to use scapbook paper as a placemat.

I agree with the doilies. You definitely wouldn’t want the table to become over-crowded and I think that would be a great idea.

I think that candles always are a greay way to add a little something extra to your tablescapes, without costing too much.  I bought a case of flameless candles from the dollar tree and split it w/another bride, costing us each $24 for 72 candles.  Instead of buying candle holders, etc., I’m going to make my own luminaries with vellum by just cutting them and rolling/taping them into a small cylinder shape.  They look like frosted votive holders, but are super cheap because they’re made of paper..and you don’t have to worry about them bursting into flames because they’re fake candles lol.  Put a few of those on each table, and they create soft lighting effects, and a simple elegance.  Sorta like these images I found online:
