These are my colors too!  I’ve been using your bouquet photo as my inspiration for flowers, linens, etc.

well you’ve already seen my pictures- but here’s a few different ones

IMG_6017.jpg picture by megadoomer32 (this red was a little too bright, but statice is a perfect purple filler flower, and it dries exactly how it looks fresh, so it’s a nice flower for a keepsake.)

Also- keep in mine that you don’t want to come off too “red hat ladies”- they do mostly purple with red accents, so I tried to do mostly red with just some purple

MandaMack, I knew that we had the same venue but I didn’t know we also had the same color scheme! I just had my wedding and it was all jewel tones, red, purple, raspberry pink, and gold. Keep an eye for my recaps and I will have all the pics!

Here are two of the inspiration boards I made for colors and flowers:

You’ll run across these tissue paper flowers all over the wedding world. I first saw them on the martha wedding website under paper crafts, but heres a video and directions: http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/giant-tissue-paper-flowers-667712/

They look more lotus/dahlia like with pointed ends and more carnation like with rounded. I loved them so much, I wish I had made more.

(Target has packs of dark purple tissue paper, and Michaels had red, although it wasn’t very dark.)

Yea I’ve been drawn to the dark dark cranberry red (the red hat lady red reads as holiday to me)  And adding some punches of cream and brown to make it more autumny.

I am going to have these as my wedding colors too! I never thought I would love those two colors together but after looking at beautiful wedding pics I can’t help but to be drawn to it. I think the two of them are very elegant and classy together.
