Coral, Graphite, and Citron Color Scheme

Having trouble committing to a color scheme after the caterer inquired about my table linen color choices. There is the standard white/ivory and even a lace overlay, which might be nice considering the venue. However, if we’re paying extra to rent long linens for the banquet tables….might as well get color right?

Coral, Graphite, and Citron Color Scheme

According to this coral, dark grey, and citron color scheme…we could pull off the following

Chiavari chairs: Dark Mahogany OR Silver
Linens: Ivory OR Pastel Green, Pastel Blue Green
Napkins: Ivory
Seat Covers: Ivory
Flowers: Coral
Misc: clear vases, silver and mercury candlesticks, white candles

Bridesmaid dresses: Coral
Groomsmen: Graphite/Medium Dark Grey Suits

So many little details, I am definitely sweating the small stuff. ARGH.


Long Rectangular Tables for Wedding Seating Design

Love banquet dining with long rectangular tables because you can chat with people across the table from you, which rounds don’t offer. The good news is that many venues have these in stock at no additional charge. Long tables are friendlier, and have the flexibility to be dressed up for a rustic outdoor wedding, or dressed up for a formal regal look.

The lush decorations, which I adore, are what I’m about to tackle next in terms of budget and feasibility. Will definitely need more flowers than most invest in for the wedding, and that means florist expenses go up.

Next step: hoard clear glass candle holders, clear flower vases (an assortment of glass and crystal for both holders and vases). Where can I get my hands on clear candelabras for rent?

I love the height of the candelabras, and the shimmering layers of the clear glass and candlelight, and of course, lots of low lying flowers so people can talk over them, while maintaining a clear vision across the table of fellow guests.
