4. Choose Accent Colors

If you find it hard to choose just one color for your wedding, you can opt to have an accent color to liven up your party. This is a good way to get a tasteful dose of bold colors. You can opt to use it on statement pieces on your stage decor, through your chair sashes, or as part of your wedding arch backdrop.
If your wedding color palette is composed of neutral colors and you’re going for an accent color that’ll make a statement, choose a bold color. Think primary colors like red, blue, yellow. Other options are green, violet, orange, choose shades of these colors depending on what goes with your wedding theme.

5. Consider your Venue

One of the basic things to consider is your party venue. Is it an outdoor wedding set-up? Are you surrounded by green foliage in a garden villa or is it a private backyard wedding affair?
Perhaps it's an indoor events place with high ceilings that lend itself well to wedding drapery decor? Knowing what venue you’re working with will help you choose your wedding linen colors.
For outdoor weddings that offer lush greeneries, you can opt for neutrals, natural linen, or earthy tones. For beach weddings, the obvious options are blue and green hues paired with coral and peach tones. For indoor weddings at events places, you can get creative with your colors. You can opt for a classic look with white table linens paired with your choice of wedding color.

Should your wedding tablecloths touch the floor?

The length of your wedding reception tablecloths depends on the kind of wedding theme and party vibe you're going for. If you’re designing for a formal wedding party, your wedding tablecloths should ideally touch the floor. If you’re going for a more casual party look, you can opt for tablecloths that are mid-length or cover just a few inches beyond the edges.
