Gold is nice.

I agree that gold would be GORGEOUS.  That shade of purple, gold, ivory, and black would be a lovely color palette.

I’d love that colour matched with a cream.  It lightens it up a bit, but keeps the colour palette rich.

my dresses were plum we did ivory and gold and ended up adding bits of lilac just go with what you love because end the end it does not matter what anyone else says.. Not the best picture but you can see the colors I used

I have a very similar color (yours is a bit darker/richer) and we’re going with silver and a teeny bit of light green.

Love that color BTW!!

I love monochrome. Since you have a deep purple already, maybe throw in some light purple touches here and there?

My colors are Plum and Champagne. Its not as dark as gold but not as light as ivory (both of which look good together,) but it gives a nice pop of color.

You can always go to the salon and ask to see swatches of the fabrics together and you be the judge. My dress is ivory and it works just fine but I can’t visualize the Diamond White. And if by chance you don’t like the way these colors match, ask a sales associate. They do this for a living and have seen hundreds of color combinations.

And If you choose to do all white/ivory for your flowers, thats beautiful. Clean and simple. I just like the little pop of color. I’m even going as far to decide wether to wear plum or champagne colored heel instead of ivory because I like little things like that. But its not for everybody. But don’t be stressed over these colors. There are so many BIGGER things to get stressed over. :o)

I’m using plum dresses for my girls and the bouquets will have lavender, plum, and ivory flowers. I will incorporate some champagne as well in the table linens. I love dark and light purple together!

Here’s a pic of the bouquet I am modeling after…

Were doing the eggplant/plum color too and were using lavender (like the pp), a pale pink, and silver as accent colors… but like everyone else as pretty much said.. a lighter colors look really lovely with this color! 🙂

it depends on the feeling you want to evoke. plum + gold will look very regal. if you want to go a bit more wild, plum + chartreuse will look very fresh and springy. and don’t worry about your dress matching it, the white will look great with anything.

oh, and if you’d like to find color inspiration, this website has a lot of palettes people have made, plus you can easily make your own if you wish! http://www.colourlovers.com/

browsing around, here’s a few that might help:

plum + sunset colors

plum + greens, very gardeny

purple + blue + subdued green, more modern

purples + pink + blue, very dream-like
