    So… the big university in town had purple as gold as it’s colors. I’ve seen classy events for it with those colors, but it always looks a bit much. I voted for ivory with a touch of both — I think that would be beautiful!

    I picked ivory with touches of both colors

    My colors are Ivory, gold and eggplant.

    My main color is ivory/white (bouquets, centerpieces, cake, dishes- no chargers, napkins) etc will all be in ivory. My next main color is gold (more like a champagne) and this includes all of my linens and my desert station decor. The venue also has gold decor on the walls etc. My accent color is the eggplant. This includes my bridesmaids dresses, the ribbons on my favors, the backing of my invitations, the writing on the velum paper on the candles for the table numbers, the ribbon on my pew decorations, my toasting glasses and my uplighting. Hope this helps.

    I think mainly purple with pops of gold OR ivory with a lot of gold and pops of purple could both look nice.  I think they would have very different feels to them.  I think the ivory/gold with purple would be a more formal look, and the purple with gold would be more fun and funky (but could still go fairly formal… just not as formal as the other one).  What feeling would you like your wedding to have?

    @MrsJJC:  I’m from Baton Rouge, Louisiana so when I hear purple and gold I instantly think “LSU colors”.  So I could never have those as my wedding colors without people thinking that is why I picked the colors.  But I would make purple the dominant color if I was the OP.

    Those are our colors too, if you can say that we have colors, since we aren’t being too traditional about it.

    I’m using the purple and gold both as accents because I think when one is predominant it looks a lot like some of the more ornate Indian weddings I’ve seen, which are AMAZING and GORGEOUS but not what we’re going for.

    There are examples of haing either more purple accents, or in the last picture more gold with purple uplighting, but they are ALL beautiful and don’t look like LSU colors at all

    I feel like gold should be dominant while the gold accents it.

    *Runs to Facebook* Someone I know just had their wedding with purple and gold. Purple was the main color with touches of gold. Her bridesmaid’s dresses were purple that sort of duochromed to gold. They were gorgeous.
