Dark purple mixed with red, orange, a touch of fuchsia, and a hint of green.

I second Miss Bruschetta’s idea! Purples and oranges are so chic.

The technical complimentary color of purple is yellow. But you could also go with a tertiary color scheme and do purple, orange,  and green.  A Pale grey with dark purple could also look fabulous!

@jbbaby : I think it is springy with the lilac and light green!

I’m thinking of gray, with bits of black & white. I guess I love purple to a fault, I don’t want to include other colors LOL

I’m thinking about doing a plum color with raspberry, gold, and silver accents.  I’m also going to incorporate moss in my centerpieces.

We had a dark purple and orange wedding in May.  It was gorgeous!

My colors are going to be purple (plum), olive green, and chocolate brown with gold accents.  It is in the winter so I wanted rich colors.  Also, I LOVE the purple and orange.  very unique, it would be great for a fall wedding.  Wow, I am in love with that combo.

Dark purple will look good with either lighter shades of purple or pink, dark red or blue, and yellow. =) Basically, you want to look for either colours similar to purple, or colours opposite purple. If you’re looking at doing three or more colours, I would suggest either choosing one colour close to purple (maybe a lilac) and one colour opposite it (yellow) if you want drama/pop, or choosing two colours closer to it if you want a more subdued, elegant feel.

http://www.brides.com actually has a colour wheel feature that you can select a main colour with (dark purple) and play around with different colour combos. =) It’s really fun.

I live in Southern California myself and whenever I think of purple and yellow, I think of the Lakers’ colors.

Seriously…but I think if you used a pale yellow then you can pull it off. Haha.
