It sounds fine to me! A lot of people don’t like chair covers as much now because chiavari chairs are so popular. I still love them, though, and unless your guests are avid wedding blog readers, I doubt they’ll even know what a chiavari chair is :).

As far as the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress/tablecloth issue, I think it’s really a non-issue. Your Maid/Matron of Honor seems ridiculously detail-oriented to the extreme :P.

I really don’t think the purple will look cheap if that helps. Tons of bees have photos of colored tablecloths, and they look great. Try Googling “purple tablecloths” and I bet a ton of photos will pop up.

Why would purple look cheap? Why would it matter if the bridesmaid dresses are the same color as the sashes & table runners? I don’t understand what your friend was saying at all.

Can you post a picture with an example of what your table setup will look like? I can’t imagine it looks “cheap”, but maybe there’s something your friend saw that we are missing in your description….or maybe she’s just a little crazy! 🙂

I don’t think it would look cheap at all. It’s just a matter of opinion if people like matchy or not, but I feel like it’s normal for weddings to have the dresses match the decor.

@KiwiBee: Has your friend recently had a wedding of her own? Because if not, then she isnt the best person to take advice from. Alot of peple give opinions but really dont know what they are talking about. Go with your heart and do what you want. I think purple overlays would be fine

I dont think the colours will look cheap at all, if its the right kind of purple it will look rich and dark most likely. But i am a little “off” about the dress and table cloth matching perfectly….it might look a little weird IMO.

What you have planned sounds great. Having the same colours in different things is what you’re supposed to do! Those are your colours.

I don’t think it’ll look cheap as long as the material is nice. I’ve never been a fan of chair covers but to each their own, its YOUR wedding.
