@mcj040916:  Although it is a summer wedding,

But you have October 12 as your date? Did you change it?

Do you have color swatches? I like the sound of these colors together because I can visualize the colors… I like eggplant  purplish and kiwi is greenish and ivory to tie it all together!

We went for an eggplant, basil, with grey/silver accents. Although in the end after looking over flowers, it was hard to find affordable flowers in those exact shades so our wedding was more: purple, green with grey/silver accents. So all shades of 3 colors. LOL. I know, horrible. But I don’t think anyone noticed we weren’t strict on a color.

Here is a photo of our centerpieces. This was during our mock up meeting so the pinspot lights were off.

I think that eggplant/ aubergine can be very a very elegant and almost sensuous color although I tend to think of if it as a fall/winter color, so it will be nicely balanced by the lively,  bright, kiwi color which is definitely a warm weather color and more fun than elegant I would say. I would personally use ivory as a base for adding the other colors and maybe even add some gold accents.

@mcj040916:  Our ceremnony was outside in a tent, the reception was inside. I did not find it hard to make the green and purple flowers fancy. I think it depends on how you present them. We used a lot of crystals hanging and candles, which I felt made it more elegant. I wanted the roses to be a deeper purple though, they turned out really pink, but I guess I can thank mother nature for that. Here’s a photo of my bouquet and the bm’s bouquets. As well as another photo of our entire reception space and ceremony space. We had the uplighting change throughout the night for different “events” like cake cutting, and father daughter/mother son dance. We used purple uplighting mainly for the reception and green uplighting for the ceremony.

@mcj040916:  thank you :). Uplighting makes a BIG difference. Our venue is really cold, cement floors and cement colored brick walls. My parents thought were lost our minds when we picked our venue. Who knew what a difference a few colored light bulbs could do 😉
