I’m getting married on 11/23/12. I would like my bridesmaids to wear a dark shade of purple (plum or eggplant) but I also wanted a romantic feel to my wedding. Does lavendar, creams, and champagnes work with this? Does this not go with the time of year? I’m afraid the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses will be too dark and not match the style of the wedding, but I don’t want them to wear lavendar. Any ideas? Does anyone have photos of their purple wedding?

One of my favorite inspiration shoots is a very autumny wedding with aubergine, cream, and gold:
I definitely think that your colors work for a November wedding. You could also use some slate grey to make it more seasonally appropriate:
Your colors are gorgeous – don’t worry too much! 🙂

I am doing a purple wedding but it’s not until 3/25
I think purple with gold/champagne with hints of cream would look beautiful
I also think you can do purple with dark red

My wedding is in december and I have also chosen a darker shade of purple (have not decided between plum or eggplant yet but those are the contenders). I have decided to use ivory and gold with the darker shade of purple. I want a romantic feel as well. I have been having the hardest time trying to come up with decor ideas so I’m curious to see other posters input!

I’m getting married 10/27/12 and I’m doing eggplant, or plum, champagne, and lilac. The nice thing about dark dresses is the fact that they are flattering on most girls, and the girls would be more likely to re-wear the dress.

@weddinglr: My hubby and I had our colors represent our two families/sides of the party. I had my brother as a bride’s assistant, my Bridesmaid or Best Man and Maid/Matron of Honor all in shades of purple while my Darling Husband, Best Man, groomsman, and groom’s assistant were all in shades of orange and gold. This color theme was throughout our decor, too, as you see here in the organza drapes…
We had our good friend as our “flower dancer” in the lightest shade of purple:
I think your colors will go well together beautifully for that time of year. Have fun planning!

For some reason my orchids look pink in my real photos, but they were actually dark purple!
