The fun thing about weddings is that really, you can put almost any colors you want together!

When I was on a ‘must-choose-colors’ streak (I’ve since decided we probably won’t define our colors, unless I stumble upon a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress I fall in love with; otherwise my girls will pick their own dress in any bright color) I went to the Behr paint website and played with their e-paint chips for a while. You can mix and match colors and see how they go together, or the site will suggest additional colors to go with the one(s) you already picked.

You should try it out! (or if you’re more of an in-real-life girl, less e-friendly, head down to a local paint shop and play with real paint chips!)

What about a goldenrod yellow?

Oooh – what if you do Grey, Plum, Dusty Rose and Cream? How gorgeous!

I feel like purple and yellow reminds me of the Vikings – probably since I’m from MN…


But if you do Purple, Grey and green – make it a soft green.  Don’t want to take away from the purple too much.

Yeah, I think a nice sage would be nice…kind of metallic.

Yellow is such a nice complement to purple… and the shade you choose can totally set the tone for everything else! A buttercream yellow, for example, is more romantic and whistful than a BOLD strong yellow… but all of the combinations people have listed sound great!

you could do grey purple and silver, kind of a tone on tone

hmmm. i’m in the minority, apparently, but i like the suggestion of plum, dusty-rose, cream or mauve-y gray.

why? because i totally wouldn’t do anything too contrast-y (green, or yellow, for instance). that just doesn’t sound pretty to me.

so, i’d definitely do a tone-on-tone kind of thing, where the colors are all in the same family.

so, for instance, another variation: a silver or gray (maybe choose one that’s ever so slightly mauve); and then a delicate pale lavendar or pale lilac; and then your deep purple.

I’m also a tone-on-tone voter. Dark purple, grey & a pale lilac? You could even do two shades of grey. Two greys, two purples. That might be nice. (Like larabee I also don’t like yellow & purple together…colours of my university, too rah rah for my liking.)

I feel for you…I’m also have trouble picking colours. I find it v tough
