My girls are carrying bright pink gerber daisies with their eggplant dresses. I am doing a mixture of purple and pink.

@KLP- that is perhaps the most amazing gown of all time!  I love love love love love that dress.

As for flowers, I love the pop of greens and yellows with eggplant.  And light pinks.  I think contrast is a great design element.

I am an eggplant bride also (or at least my BMs are).  Their flowers are purple hydrangea, dark purple calla lily, flame calla lily (red/org), confetti rose (orange w/red tips), red hypercium berries.  I wanted fall colors with some purple.  My bouquet are the same types of flowers/berries but all in white.

I had a purple bouquet, so my girls had white ones (all babysbreath) but there are obviously a million other options for white bouquets. ๐Ÿ™‚

My girls had yellow gerbera daisy bouquets.  I loved how the color pops next to their dresses.  ๐Ÿ™‚

My bms are wearing Grape colored (close to eggplant, but a little brighter purple) dresses with berry sashes – their flowers will have lots of white stock and hydrangea,  and a little dark purple stock, and hot pink roses. My bouquet will have a little white and a lot more of the purple/pink. I can’t wait!

Yellow looks nice next to purple or eggplant.

LOVE the yellow with the purple!!  I would definitely stick to a lighter color (pink, yellow, white, cream, light orange) to make it stand out against the darker dress.

I love eggplant.  If I didn’t love blue so much, my girls would probably be in it haha!

My girls are wearing eggplant dresses too. Absolutely love that color!! They are going to carry a mixture of pink (soft pink, bright pink, fuschia) and purple flowers. We’re including orchids in the bouquets. Here are some of my inspiration photos. ๐Ÿ™‚
