If your center pieces are going to be white, my opinion is to go navy on the table. If not all navy at least a over lay or runner…

I am doing navy as well, but have not decided on table settings, the navy and white is beautiful but i think you need to put some silver in it to blend it a bit. Here is a picture: (maybe a bit too bland)

If push comes to shove do what I did. I loved the black and white but I thought that the black would be to drab and wash out my centerpieces. So I did a black with white overlay and a runner. Looked perfect and was exactly what I was wanting. Check out my gallery for ideas.

The navy satin cloths are beautiful and will really accentuate the white centerpieces.

I’m a navy bride also!  I’m doing navy poly tablecloths for all the guest tables but the head table and accemt tables (cake, presents, guestbook, etc) in ivory with gold beaded overlays.  (My colors are navy, ivory, gold, with lilac flower accents).  I think navy tablecloths will look lovely, especially with white centerpieces, but try to give it some dimension with at least one other accent color.  To me, navy blue and white screams for something else to soften it up, such as light blue for a sweet touch, gold or silver for a regal look, grass or kelly green for a fun look, or lilac or pink for a girly punch.

Sorry I gotta say… I did Navy satin linens with navy chair sashes and it looked beautiful.  It was a darker blue than the one in the first picture.  I had silver manzanita trees as the centerpieces so they didn’t really stand out on the white linens…and all that white made the room just look bland.  I love the way this last pic looks with the chavari chairs but I couldn’t afford $6/a chair at $200 people so i went with the sashes and it looked beautiful.  With the lighting we put in the room it looked so beautiful and everyone commented on how the room looked amazing.  I have pics I will put up later.  🙂 Good luck!

My color isn’t navy blue but is royal blue which is a darker blue as well. What I did is i created a mock-up centerpiece with a couple place cards and a table number and brought it to the linen place i’d be renting from to see what it would look like. I originally wanted blue floor length tablecloths with white napkins and chair cover but I realized it didn’t look good with the type of centerpiece I had. Then I tried a white tablecloth with blue napkins and it looked much classier.

I think you should still try and see what blue tablecloths will look like with your centerpieces as I still like this idea, it just didn’t work for me. I would just suggest not to have blue chair sashes, it’s too much color in one room.

I have added photos here to give you an idea but of course looks weird without all the dishware. I’ve also added a photo of the chair cover i’m using, it’s tied in the front instead of the back but the chairs at the venue have a space between the back and seat, therefore people can’t feel the knot on their backs. I thought it look more modern.

Edit: Sorry for the large photos, I’m resizing them but they won’t go smaller.
