I don’t think of purple as very rustic, but I guess it depends on how you use it.  I think you can still use the purple vases if you go for flowers that are very rustic looking, wildflower-esque.  Lavender would be a beautiful addition, as well.  I think you can also use the mirrors and candlesticks, assuming they have an antique/aged feel to them.  If they don’t, you can always try “roughing them up” to make them look older/more rustic.  Good luck!

I agree with mouse I think lavender would look a lot more rustic.

I love purple and green. I don’t think its rustic but it is possible to add a rustic touch. I want a rustic wedding and have saved tons of pictures I love or even like. This one I really like and have even considered doing purple and green not positive yet though. I thought I’d share it with you.

You could do grape and dark olive color.

I’m also using purple and green ๐Ÿ™‚ And I definitely think it can be  given a “rustic” look, as long as the colors are more muted and are used with natural components, like wood and stone. I think the chipped silver candlesticks remind me more of a “vintage” feel, which is what I”m goign for–I have green, pewter gray, and purple. I think you should definitely incorporate a neutral accent color like a gray or mocha so that the palette doesn’t look too modern or crisp. But I think they’re lovely colors! ๐Ÿ™‚

I am doing rustic purple and green.  My purple is deep eggplant and my green is olive.  My accent colors are brown and cream.  As long as the colors are not too bright, you can make it rustic.  My colors are dark partly because it is a winter wedding.

I love purple and green, though I only want to use them as accents rather than main colors. Because we’re having an evening wedding, I’m going a bit more formal using mostly black, white, and silver. but I think a little mossy green and violet will work well.

I love a dusky purple, or an eggplant with a silvery sage color. Those would be really beautiful!

I love purple and green together too.  If I ever have a child, that’s the color I want for the nursery.  I love it.
