1. Good Vibes

Determine how you want your guests to feel at your wedding reception. Your table linen colors are the foundation of your wedding decor. Maybe you want to go with relaxing muted colors for an easy going vibe? Or maybe you want rich colors for a regal black tie event? Decide which colors make you feel happy and exude the ambiance you want at your wedding. Pick this as your primary table linen color.

4. Venue Assets

When looking into what table linen colors to choose for your wedding you want to keep your event space in mind. What is it that attracted you to that venue? What features and attributes do you like and dislike? In addition, you want to focus on complimenting and accentuating the traits you like with corresponding wedding tablecloth colors.
For example, if you have an indoor venue with large windows you may want soft ivory or white for an illuminating look. On the other hand, if you have an outdoor venue lush with greenery you may want to keep things light and flow with blushes and light pinks. You can take a good look at your venue and play around with colors until you find one that you love!

5. Use Accents That Make Sense

If you aren’t sure what you want as your primary color, think about if you know what accent colors you would like to have. Generally speaking, you usually want a metallic color like gold, rose gold, silver, or copper. Then, decide if you would like to go warm, cool, or neutral. What pairs well with the metallic color you chose? What color combination do you like? If you decide on gold as an accent and you want to add white or champagne, you may want another pop of color like blush or brown to round out your color palette. It doesn’t hurt to play around as much as you need to until you find your dream color selection!

6. Decor Dreams

Another good approach you can take to figuring out what table linen colors best suit your wedding is the type of decor you would like to have. Maybe you’re not sure what color scheme you would like but you know you want a rustic wedding with wood slabs and burlap. Think of what colors complement that decor and look good on your linen tablecloth. Rustic weddings pair well with champagne, brown, gold, white, and blush due to the decor style and natural tones. This is something to pay attention to if there’s a certain decor style you’re interested in and will make picking your table linens a breeze!

Swatches are a life saver! Let’s say you have an idea of what colors you would like for your wedding but you want to make sure you’re making the right choice. You can ask for swatches of the colors desired in different fabrics and find the color combination and fabrics that make you as excited as the day you said yes. The great part about having swatches is that you can take them to your venue and see how they look in that atmosphere, as well as hold it up to your dress, wedding decor, and more to make sure everything matches!
