I don’t think it “clashes” with the season, but if you want to brighten it up, try adding a brighter accent color to the purple and silver, like a bright turquoise, or lime green.

MrsDavistobe:  I think purple goes with August. It’s actually one of the more popular color schemes for wedding these days, and I’ve seen it done for every season.

Purple and August can totally go together!  I’m a big supporter of doing whatever colour you like regardless of season so if you want purple and silver I say go for it! 🙂 

I also think purple and shades of green look gorgeous together and they remind me of a summer garden party.

I don’t understand how a color can look hot…

I am a big fan of doing whatever color you want regardless of the season. 

How about plum or a jewel tone purple and Jewel tone turquoise as an accent? kind of like shades of peacock. Silver would be a great accent!

when I was picking my colors I found it helpful to go to a bridal store and mix and match swatches from their bridesmaid dress fabrics to see what combinations I liked. Alfred Angelo had beautiful shades of purple. 

Good luck! I’m sure it will be beautiful.

I agree with PP, purple is great, even a darker purple, as long as you have something else to sort of “freshen” it. The teal looks nice.

MrsDavistobe:  There are websites that can help too.

http://www.theperfectpalette.com     scroll down on the right, click on the color purple you like and you will see all the palettes the have developed using that color


ww.design-seeds.com   click on palette search, you can then search by theme, or play around with their search by color value tool till you get a purple you like, then click on Go Get It and you will see their palettes.

also go to the hardware or paint store and get paint swatches – whether before or after you choose your palette- they help make decisions, but also are great to keep with you  after you have chosen your palette when you are shopping for other items.

I think a nice plum purple would work well with pale champagney gold and cobalt blue or teal.
