When I think of purple and gold, I think of sports teams. Either the Lakers, the Vikings, or LSU basically. Perhaps purple and canary and then do accents in either pink or cream? They look very nice together and you won’t have that sports feel to it.

i do personally feel like it’ll lend itself to a lakers theme.

i used this tool, that i use for my work: http://kuler.adobe.com/#create/fromacolor

you can add the color to the middle and select a rule and it will tell you which other colors go with it, or start with some inspiration picture and it will select colors.

We are doing purple and yellow for our wedding. (FI picked because I couldn’t decide and he’s a vikings fan) Whenever someone asks what our colors are and I say purple and yellow, they don’t think sports teams at all. They are just like oh those are nice spring colors. Maybe since yours is in the fall you could maybe to like eggplant and an actual gold color not yellow gold. I don’t know thats just my suggestion if you are worried about association with sports teams.

What about adding another accent color? Maybe a lime green, another shade of purple, red, teal, or another jewel tone? If you just want to go with purple and gold, I think it could look Laker – ish if really overdone. But, maybe pick a lighter purple or a darker gold – different shades not generally associated with them – and bring in lots of neutral tones like blacks and ivorys to break everything up.
