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
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

, rose gold
, or copper
. Then decide if you would like to go warm, cool, or neutral. What pairs well with the metallic you chose? What color combination do you like? If you decide on gold as an accent and you want white
, you may want another pop of color like blush
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 team!
