    I’d just add some white flowers and a super cute cake topper to the cake. Don’t worry about adding color

    @CarterLove:  Blue and purple look lovely together, I don’t see why you couldn’t do both!

    Why not use a combo? Blue and purple are pretty together. Something like this for the bouquets, but with more of the creamy/white flowers?

    Go for the purple.  I went with bold colors for my cake and I didn’t regret it.  I get tired of seeing all of the white confections that look the same.  A vibrant purple cake would stand out and be memorable.  Don’t worry about it not matching the blue, they are complementary colors that go well together.

    @CarterLove:  

    There are tons of beautiful white cakes! I probably would choose just white over purple

    @CarterLove:  My sister was my only bridesmaid and like you I gave her the choice of whatever she wanted to wear. Her dress was dark blue ( I would have preferred teal!) and we had a white on white cake with coloured ribbon around the edges of the cake board to tie things together.

    this was my cake and the BM’s bouquettes.  i wanted something simple.  our colors were navy and lilac.

    BM’s wore navy dresses.

     

    the flowers went on the cake table for decoration.

    Purple and blue are complementary colors.  Use them both, but use a neutral as a base.  I think the colors will look great.

    Purple and blue are complementary (lucky you!) so I would keep all the purple details you were planning!

    Are you still going to have dark purple in your bouquet? I think a blue dress with white and purple flowers in the bouquets and on the cake would be very pretty. Just because she has a blue dress, it doesn’t mean you have to encorporate blue into the flowers instead of purple.
