@Crazeebee3:  The first thing I thought of was a black tie affair. I know someone who was married in a black tie wedding, everything (I mean everything) was black and white. I think it’s very elegant! Perhaps a lighter tint of the eggplant would lighten it up a bit, but not stray from your original scheme.

I think that could be very nice looking. You could do silver bowls to hold the eggplant colored flowers and maybe silver candle holders with candles around the centerpieces? Silver chargers at each place setting. I love that idea.

@Crazeebee3:  Not really. Black tablecloths, dresses, the only things that were white were the dress and I think some balloons but that was about it.

@Crazeebee3:  maybe use silver plates or mirrors as the base for your centerpieces to bring some light to the table. 

You could have silver chargers on the tables, use white or silver napkins, have silver table numbers.

There will be lots of places to put in pops of bright – I think you’ll be okay 🙂

@Crazeebee3:  I think it could look very elegant. Is it an evening wedding?

I think black everything would be overkill. I would suggest making the tablecovers plum, like

@lealorali:  suggested.

@Crazeebee3:  Since you mentioned silver as an accent color, you could add silver sashes to the chairs to break it up a little. We had black tablecloths with silver chair covers and napkins. I think your colors sound gorgeous!!

I did a black wedding with eggplant and it turned out looking very classy and not too dark. I threw splashes of silver to lighten things up a bit.
