    I would go with black chair covers with black sashes and then green table cloths with a black sheer overlay or black runner.  Alternatively a black table cloth with green napkins.

    You don’t want it to look like you forced the color into everything just to match.

    I think bringing in the colors like the picture below is the sophisticated way to go.

    While this combination is not very sophisticated at all

    ya i agree with the poster above. I’m always wary about things looking too matchy matchy. I would nix the chair sashes all together.

    I think green with black accents like sashes.

    @KLB264:  I would totally recommend bringing in another neutral color like white or silver to defuse the two very strong colors you have picked out.  With just two colors in a room, the room can look a little….forced and flat.  But with other coordinating colors it will look more layered and well thought out. My mom thought I was crazy because I kept adding colors to my wedding color scheme, (I ended up with 5 colors in total.) But when it all came together she reluctantly admited that it was the right thing to do.  

    I think the damask runners would be a nice touch.  I’m not a huge fan of chair covers or sashes but sometimes there’s no way getting around them.  They can still look sophisticated if you don’t tie the sashes into big bows but make them simple and streamlined.

    For my wedding I did Black Chairs, Green (APPLE/LIME) Table cloths and the damask (BLACK AND WHITE DESIGNED) table runners. and I received so many compliments on it and I loved it.  It looked amazing. 


    I still have the table runners I made for my wedding.  They look similar to the ones on the second post.  You could put it on rectangle tables or circular.  They are about 6 feet long and 1 foot wide and I have 25.  If you are interested in that look I am willing to sell them to you.  Just let me know

    Good luck! 🙂


    P.S. I also have a ring bearer pillow and basket to match if your interested.
