Okay so I’ve always been a purple girl, it’s my colour. My hair has been purple, my prom dress was purple (although a pale shade, not my usual royal purple) I love purple. I’ve always wanted black, purple and green to be my wedding colours. Now that I’m planning I find that I LOVE soft yellow with soft grey. I just don’t know what to do. I know FH doesn’t like grey suits, so he’ll want to wear black. I was going to have my BM’s in black dresses and purple shoes and the GM’s in black suits/tuxes with purple ties & socks but now I just don’t know what to do! Advice!

Go with what you love! My favorite color is blue but I am using pink gray and black. I love the colors together. Dont go with something just because you think people will expect it.
I am doing black dresses with black tuxes. The shoes will be dark pink and the men will have pink socks. I think either the gray and yellow and the purple and black will Look great. You could do gray dresses with black suits yellow flowers…or with the black dresses and tuxes with purple flowers.
Go with your gut!

@MsGinkgo: I hate to be captain obvious but purple, light yellow and grey?
Put the Groomsmen in black with grey vests and a yellow tie, the girls in purple. I think you want to add yellow anyways for a spring wedding you need some kind of light color to soften it.
I got this board from Burnett’s boards http://burnettsboards.com/2012/10/purple-grey-yellow/

Go with the black and purple! Purple is my favorite color too, so I’m a bit biased. I always knew that I’d have a purple wedding, but there are a lot of very cute color schemes and ideas out there.

If you love purple that much then go with purple. Go with the colour you really love most.

@MsGinkgo: go with what you have always loved. it sounds perfect.
i do love the yellow and grey colour combo too. it’s a great combination that perhaps you can utilize in your home decor. maybe your bathroom or bedroom.

While wedding planning you see a bazillion things that you like but I always find that its short lived and the majority of the time i come back to what i love

@Treeline: I’m not sure how I feel about the Purple/Yellow/Grey combo. I think I’ll have to play with it and see. I feel like the bright purple overpowers the softer shades.
I appreciate the suggestion though!

@MsGinkgo: Go with your heart. It is hard as there are so many great combos to have, but if purple’s what you’ve always wanted, if you don’t do it, you might always wonder. p.s love the sound of black BM dresses and purple shoes.
