Ive always loved Purple, its my birthstone(FEB 13 🙂 ) and I love the regal/romantic meaning behind the color, so I definately am going to have purple in my sceme, that is set in stone. Im a bridesmaid in my friends wedding next July, and IVe had loads of fun helping her plan and look through the bridal magazines and websites like this.
While looking through one of those mags, I saw dress colors I fell in love with, peacock blue. Its close to teal, which is another fave color of mine. I like green too. When put together, I worry those colors look too dark together? I need a color to brighten them up somehow.
I HATE yellow, and orange, gold too. All of my jewelry is yellow gold/silver/platinum.
Any thoughts on a possible third color to brighten it or make it pop? Or a way to tome one of these shades down?

Maybe a magenta pink? Sounds like you’re going with jewel tones.

I think lime green or silver would look pretty with those colors. (My favorite colors are purple and teal.)

Purple is one of my favorite colors too. I think the jewel tones would look great together. We used all shades of purple with bits of green and then platinum. Maybe that is an option?
ETA: the pop of magenta that soonergirl suggested would be fun too. Just depends on the vibe you are going for.

Can’t you just use a light green? Those 3 would look great together

@Liss13: I think we are twins! My birthday is Feb. 13 and my colors are purple, lime green and champagne! I am also doing pops of blue and teal in my flowers and stationary (peacock colors without the actual feathers). If your wedding is in October, you can totally get away with rich, dark jewel tones. But if you wanted something to pop, I think lime green would be great! My wedding is in the spring, so I wanted a lighter or brighter color to go with my purple too. Great minds think alike! :o)

You could use champagne or light charcoal.

Thanks girls. Lime green sounds good, I dont know why I didnt even think of that. Someone else told me magenta and pink before, but Im not too keen on pink. If it pops in here or there thats fine though.
