@peachbaby4008: it’ll look fine! we did black with red/orange/pink and had pumpkins too. our table runners were black & white stripes, so can’t really help you on that, it really depends on your tablecloth colors (like you wouldn’t do black on black but champagne on black would be nice to lighten it up)

Thats going to give some SWEET contrast! Maybe still use Brown or a Truffle color for an accent to make it smooth nicely together! just my opinion though! Love the idea! I honestly HATED having to wear a BROWN bridesmaid dress.

What color is your Table Cover/Linen? If you can I vote BROWN if you agree to incorporate it still (and still use Black Bmaid Gowns).

i’m having a june wedding and my bm dresses will be black. I think it’s harder for the older women to swallow it cause it’s SO untraditional.

I had black Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. I think they will be fine with your colours. And really everyone looks good in black!

@peachbaby4008: thats the only option you get? Then I’d say go with the Burnt Orange color, that would be really pretty on the table. But then again depends what your doing for a centerpiece as well, if using leaves/pumpkins (examples) might not want MORE orange!

@peachbaby4008: its okay! White is a blank canvas, do it up! The table runner will do WONDERS! I am currently making my own Table Runners since I found and purchased Clearance Fabric in my “accent” color. I say do it in the Red/Burgunday or the Burnt Orange, whichever color you have less of.  Im sure the girls have PLENTY of websites where you could find cheap/inexpensive linens if needed! OR I say check out the Classified sections on here! Best of Luck Peach!

Black and white are neutrals.  ANY color(s) will look god with them!

check out linentablecloth.com, they have cheap tablecloths, overlays and runners – we got our tablecloths there for cheaper than it was to rent them! and if you wait it out a bit (subscribe to their emails) you’ll inevitably get a coupon soon. i got mine for i think 15% off, but they recently had a 25% off one come through.
