I had originally chosen my colors for my July wedding as eggplant purple (bridesmaid dresses), shades of lavender, and cream. The BM dresses are “David’s Bridal Plum”.
Now I am thinking to “summer-ize” this- of adding small red accents. For example red petals in the aisle, red bouquets for BM’s (with cream perhaps), red petals around the base of the cake/ on the tables/ maybe some red boutenieres. So just small accents, also so the dark purple won’t be so matchy-matchy.
When I suggested this to FI, he actually got all excited and started talking about flowers/ boutenieres (shock! until now, he would say “whatever you want hunni…”- so this is good).
dark purple is my favorite color, and red is FI’s so this is a good. Just wondering if yall think it would work?
(in this pic there is a little more red than I’m going for, but you know what I mean…)

@ladyartichoke: thank you 🙂 I’m hoping the red will brighten it. (then I can wear RED shoes & my FI will love that)

I think it’ll work great. I was actually thinking of doing the opposite. I really want red and white/cream but purple has always been one of my favorite colors so I might have that as an accent.

It’s so different and unique. I say go for it.

If you take out the lavender, those are my exact wedding colors for my July wedding! I hope they work.

I really like that combo! I went to a wedding where they did red BM dresses with purple accents and it looked really fresh and pretty.

@Paper Rose: That’s cool! We are month & (almost) color twins 🙂
@Ms. Blue: Oh good, you saw it in person and it did work 🙂
thanks everyone! I started off making an inspiration board of dark purple/ lavender/cream, then somehow red stuff ended up in the bottom half of it and it seemed to make it look more “summery/ fresh”, so then I made that inspiration board and my mom really likes it, and I’m liking it as well the more I think about it 🙂
