I think the eggplant dresses will look fantastic with your bright color accents – the contrast will make everything "pop". Also even though the eggplant is a darker color, with your accents it will still look bright & summery.

I am having a June wedding and my bridesmaids are wearing an eggplant color. I think it is about making things light and airy rather than light in color. My bm dresses are tea length so that helps but there are other ways of achieving that look. I think with your table setup the eggplant of the dresses is going to pop that much more.

I’ve always liked the look of purples and yellows together.  The two colours are complementary and they just "pop" (wow, this is a popular descriptor here) against one another.  Although in large amounts, they may look odd in fashion, but with one as an accent, they’ll work together very well.  I think whites and green-yellows would also serve as lovely highlights with eggplant.

I agree with jennred72 that it’s probably more about the style of the dresses rather than the colour.  As long as your bridesmaids don’t look like they’re sweltering, I personally don’t think dark colours would be out of place for a summer wedding.

The purple and yellow are complementary colors on the color wheel, so I think it will look great!  Plus it will be so fun and happy.

LOL I thought this post would be about food…

But I love your eggplant/citron play!  It’s original, and looks fantastic!  Plus it’ll make your white dress pop.  I say go for it!

oh, i love it!!!  my only color right now is yellow & after seeing your yellows against the eggplant i’m considering using a dark color to highlight the yellow even more.  i think it’s just amazing!  it’s so difficult to find something original these days…but i’ve never seen something like this & think it is fabulous!

I like the eggplant/citron combo.  I’m also using eggplant for my October wedding.  What bm dresses did you go with?

I was going to write – Mrs. Eggplant, the Bee, is awesome!  The food?  Not so much!  Haha…

Anyway – I think the dresses and colors that you have picked out are beautiful!!

I love eggplant with bright yellow! Wonderful choice! I don’t think it will be too dark at all. 🙂
