I’m trying to decide on table linens and I can’t decide between going with a classic white or a deep teal. My ring is a deep teal and I really wanted that to be the main color for the wedding so my bridesmaids are wearing this color too. I just can decide if teal on the tables is too much?? Thoughts?

    What about doing the classic white table linens with the deep teal color for napkins? Best of both worlds and since your bridesmaids will be wearing the deep teal as well, it'll be a nice separation between their dresses and the tables.

    I think white looks bland honestly. I love teal and think you should go for it. I’m doing all red tablecloths and I wasn’t sure at first like you. But when I went to the rental company showroom and saw the ivory with red runners compared to the all red it was no contest.

    Thanks ladies! I just didn’t want the deep teal to get lost since it is the main color. and since my flowers will be white and a dusty mustard, I was originally leaning towards teal to make them pop.

    We are using deep teal, too!

    My thought is to use white table cloths, deep teal napkins, and either white chair covers with matching teal sash or chiavari chairs (having a hard time justifying $10 per chair tho!). We get complimentary uplight colors so that will be teal, too. It should reflect nicely off the white!

    Regardless of what you choose, it will be lovely!

    I love the teal with a white runner or something to lighten it like white flowers. if there are photos of a bridesmaid by the linen you don’t want them to blend. I also love the white linen with a teal runner or something. Would love to see your ring!

    Oh I see! Yes, it’s definitely two very different looks! The red linen definitely makes an impression! 😍

    I love chiavari chairs! I think they definitely bring a modern, romantic look while still being timeless. Also brings a different texture to the style!

    Classic white! You don’t want too much of the teal if your bride maids are already wearing that color.

    Are you having a wedding party table? Or a sweet heart table? If so you could have the guest tables teal, and the wedding/sweet heart table white (or black). For our wedding we did white and burgandy

    Or do teal for your table, and white for the guests

    I would go classic white and maybe see what the rental company has in terms of teal charger plates/napkins for pop. You can also do a menu/table numbers or something on the tablescape to pop some teal in there.

    I love the teal linens. What would your centerpieces look like?

    I guess you could do white linens with teal accents for the centerpieces or the opposite...teal linens and white accents.

    I would
    go with classic white and teal napkins to make the teal stand out. I think with your girls wearing teal it might be too much but it’s beautiful.

    Are you doing a cocktail hour? We did our colored linen (navy) on our cocktail hour high top tables and ivory on our dinner tables with navy napkins. It turned out beautiful.
