How to Choose a Tablecloth Color Based on a Wedding Theme

A simple method to narrow down your choices for tablecloth color is to take your wedding's overall theme and design into account. 

Opt for shades that exude sophistication for formal weddings. Choose timeless and classic colors like black, ivory, or white. Tablecloths in these mudded colors exude regality and formality while serving as a polished backdrop for other decor pieces.

If your wedding will have a seasonal theme, your choice of tablecloth colors can also improve the style and vibe for your big day. Choose hues that align with the season like pastel shades for a spring wedding or warm, rich tones for an autumn theme.

You can use vivid colors to add a pop of color. Purchase tablecloths with eye-catching green and blues and unique patterns, if you're planning a beach wedding or a bohemian-inspired celebration.

Coordinating with Wedding Colors and Decor

Match your tablecloths to other table decors to create a beautiful table arrangement. Choose exquisite tableware to go with your table cover. For example, you can pair white or ivory tablecloths with gold-rimmed dinnerware Select tableware with contrasting hues if you opt for colored tablecloths for weddings. 

The color of tablecloths can also accentuate the beauty of the flower arrangements. Select tablecloth hues that will bring out the colors in your floral decor. 

Lastly, make sure that the tablecloth colors of your choice go well with the colors of your other wedding linens, like chair covers, napkins, and table runners. Balance the colors of your table setting for a gorgeous wedding reception. 

Making the Final Decision

Before deciding on what color tablecloth will be your final choice, try on several fabrics to see how they look in your venue. Ask fabric or event suppliers for swatches, then place them on your reception tables to see how they work with other decor elements. 

Take into account the lighting and ambiance of your wedding location as well. Dark-colored tablecloths will look more romantic and intimate for an evening wedding. Tablecloths with light colors work well for daytime reception.

Ultimately, follow your style when picking the color of the tablecloth. Go for ones that fit the overall vibe you want to create and that you and your partner find meaningful.
