I am pretty good with colors, but I’m still having wedding color issues.
My heart is set on hunter green and a purple color between eggplant and grape. I plan to make my bridesmade dresses and I found fabrics in those colos on a website. I also planto make my dress, as well. The theme for our wedding is an Enchanted forest In August with fake trees and a million butter flys, but I want at least two other colors, to encorporate into my decorations. I thought a dark raspberry color would be pretty, but the more i think about, I realize I am not big on pinks of any kind. I want it to be natural, nature colors, but think fantasy too. I will be playing Irish music as well.
Oh and my dress. Not sure yet if should be white or Ivory.
So what colors go with hunter green and more purply eggplant
Any help is SO GREATLY APPRICIATE

What about cream? I think it would be a nice accent to the darker green and purple. As for your dress im thinking Ivory would go well with those colors, but it really depends on your skin tone and if white or ivory looks better on you.

What about a shimmery copper or bronze color? That may integrate well with the enchanted forest theme while still being earthy in tone. And, your wedding sounds fantastic (LOVE Irish music)!

I think touches of yellow and orange (think butterflies) would look good.

I was going to say yellow too!

Silver/pewter would go with the Celtic feel

I don’t know why i didn”t think yellow, Orange crossed my mind but then i though orange and purple are opposites and sometimes that clashes rather then works. Thanks

Love the idea of adding copper! A dark teal/blue would also be pretty -see the four colors across the top of this inspiration board:
Also, I agree that throwing in a lighter color (cream, or even lime green like the board above) helps to provide some contrast to the darker colors and make them “pop” more.
Or, here’s one that incorporates silver and maybe a touch of lavender, and I think it has more of an “enchanted forest” feel to it:
For your dress, I wouldn’t worry much about matching it to your colors/linens/etc – choose whatever looks better on you, whether that’s white or ivory. If they both work equally well, then maybe I would lean toward ivory in combination with those colors.
