    I think your right about the purple and gold looking “lakerish”

    I love the idea of purple and emerald. I think you could do it without making it look like a peacock. Just stay away from feathers ๐Ÿ˜€

    I think purple and green would remind me of mardi gras

    EDIT: Reread your post and you don’t want anything associated with peacock, AT ALL so nevermind that inspiration board.

    Or just use a lot of purple and fresh greenery to embrace your puple and emerald without looking like a peacock ๐Ÿ™‚

    Either way, I love the purple and emerald!

    I was in a wedding this summer that was purple and a clover green color.  I was skeptical when she first told me the colors, but it looked beautiful.  I am all for emerald and aubergine!

    @HoneyBear: I love these boards!

    Re: reminding people of Mardi Gras, I think this combo of aubergine and a green that I would say is more ‘apple’ than ’emerald’ is less Mardi Gras than than aubergine and emerald. But also remember that as long as you’re not giving out beads or wearing feathery masks, no one will mention Mardi Gras. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I prefer the combo with apple green myself, because it gives a bit of variety in the tone – it’s not dark-dark, it is dark-light. That’s totally a personal preference though.

    I did purple and yellow for my June wedding.  I didn’t think it was Lakers-ish, and I actually live in LA!  ๐Ÿ™‚
