I'm making the ruffle covers, and our colors are different shades of blue and ivory.

Love all of these ideas!

How are you planning to make the ruffle covers?

I'm making them with silk chiffon/organza. Using this "tutorial", and then ombre dyeing them! Dark blue on the bottom, and then gradually lighter until it gets ivory :)

UPDATE! We are only the two of us, and I don't see the point of having a big table... At first I was told that the resort only had big dining tables, and nothing round to fit our "reception", but then the manager asked if a 30" table would be big enough, and I almost jumped and screamed YES! 30" is perfect! They apparently use these tables for breakfast and drinks in the evening, but we're going to use it to eat our first meal as husband & wife. The tablecloth I'm bringing is 108", and I love the puddle that creates at the bottom  :) Okei, so here is the inspiration of what I was going for:

And this is the actual tablecloth I bought:
 
sml_gallery_276952_17609_6357.jpg

 

In any other setting it would be waaaaay to much, but believe me, it fits sooo well with the location for the dinner! Have a look (never mind the sunbeds... Not going to be there ^^):

And here is the table, and the chairs.

So... I was thinking the silver sequin tablecloth, with the white flower-centerpiece, cobalt blue dinner napkins (like shown on the very first photo, only different colors), square white plates, and the menu on top of the plate. Then the chairs will have the ruffles, but I'm leaning more towards having them like this:

That is the same amount of ruffles I showed you the other day, but I think maybe this style fits with the overall look? Sorry about the bad photo! Quickly resembled too  :P I made those, btw

@LilyPotter - LOVE it all (especially the sparkly tablecloth)! I think it's going to be beautiful and so romantic!  Nice job! :D

Dumb question, but what is the purpose of the sweetheart table? Is it instead of a head table at your reception?
