In my opinion, a deep purple would look nice with dak green and a warm brown… and that would be fun tie-in with the vineyard.

@OneLuckyGirl19:  My colors were chamagne and turquoise because I absolutely LOVE those colors (they are my favorite). We got married in October so acccent colors were easy to choose! Fall is a colorful time of year πŸ™‚

If you want something elegant then maybe some eggplant and gold

If you want something intimate eggplant and burnt orange 

If you want something fun eggplant and yellow or lime green

@OneLuckyGirl19:  Let’s see it another way : what’t the ambiance, atmosphere you’d like your wedding to be and look like on pictures ? And we can work from there to help you choose a palette that will reflect that.

For example, if you say you want it to be playful and dynamic, I might suggest a complementary color, such as a yellow accent color to go with the shade of purple you want :



If you want a more elegant (and formal) atmosphere, more classical yet modern, I’d go with contrasting colors, and you can’t go wrong with black and white :


If you want something more romantic or vintage, I’d use a shade of purple that’s lighter, because this ambiance goes well with pastels colors and ivory :


Hope this helps πŸ™‚

white, black & pink.

We close these colors based on fi’s fav color [black], my fav color [pink] and white to bring everything together.

So our main colors are white & black, with a pink accent color.

Here is our table inspiration :

My fiance and I decided together.  It was probably something that we took about 5 minutes deciding.  Our colors are purple and yellow.  My fiance liked yellow because it reminds him of me, and purple is my other favorite color and my college alma mater color, and he likes purple too.  I like bright yellow, and we settled on plum/eggplant purple (like you are looking at) after picking out Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses (it looked great on my girls).

I would wait until you pick a venue, honestly. Some venues are fairly blank slates, but some are definitely not–and you don’t want mint green, baby blue and silver on red and orange hotel carpet πŸ˜€

If you are 100% committed to an outdoor wedding, you can’t lose with all white, blush, or shades of blue.

@OneLuckyGirl19:  I love deep purple and it sounds interesting with the deep brown a PP mentioned.

For our colors we were going to go fall brown, a burnt orange, cream colors, but ended up not finding possible dates in the fall.  We really want his brothers family to be there and it was not possible in September with kids and 2000 miles.  They would have missed school and that is more important.

So we changed to summer and I wasn’t ok with those colors then so was thinking deep purple, silver, black. Fiance doesn’t like purple so that was a NO.

We are going with royal blue, pewter and black.  We compromised.  Ha, go figure that would be one of the things he wanted major input on.

I had so much trouble myself, but I went with my gut reaction. I also went to Michael’s, Jo Ann’s, any fabric place and went to the section with the thread (like what you would make bracelets out of when you  were younger) and I pulled out my favorite shade of coral (purple for you) and just played around with them. It’s good to see everything in real life.



….hope it helps. it was constantly changing for me too but the more I worked with it, I loved it more!!…
