What about a teal overlay on the tables?  You have a lot of brown going on in the centerpieces.  A brown tablecloth with a teal overlay might look nice and give a “forest floor” feel to the tables.

I love your theme and colours! I don’t think it’s absolutely necessary but some teal would look nice elsewhere. I like your idea of having the dessert table cloth be teal. That would look nice. I definitely think it will look lovely either way 🙂

I love the bouquet and center piece photos!

 

I tend to think of these things as a work of art, when painting it’s important to make sure that if you a using a colour then you should “reflect” that colour in other parts of the painting. It makes for a more connected and harmonious look, especially if this colour stands out from the ones around it (purple and magenta are more similar to each other than the teal).

 

Ultimately it’s your day and you can see what it all looks like so you will know better than I how the colours are working together 🙂 I’d advise trying to work some teal into the other parts of the decor (teal candles or a table runner perhaps alongside the teal napkins?) but if you feel it looks right then I doubt anybody would think about it ^^

 

 

Best of luck x

You could also add some teal filler flowers.

@Mrs2B000:  MaidMarian mentioned using a teal table runner. That would accomplish the color contrast between the centerpiece and the table, yet keep teal as more of an accent color.  It sounds like the only thing you can really do is try a mock up and see what you both think.  You could also have lighted accents with teal filters that would bring the color in, not necessarily on the tables.

I assume you have your venue picked out?  I just ask because visualizing the space your reception is in can help with some of these smaller details.

I love the teal filler a PP shared! Or what about switching out the candle votives for deep teal ones?
