I was wondering if anyone here is having a fall wedding with purple as one of their colors? My colors are purple (i.e. eggplant) and copper/light gold. I would love to find in-season flowers to cut down costs, but am having a hard time finding purple blooms. Any suggestions?

Oohh I was going to go with those colors, but changed to purple and silver because it was easier to find than copper and light gold. I am doing fake flowers, so I can’t really help you much though =/. I would just talk to your florist, because they are the expert.

Hydrangea: Hydrangea are popular fall flowers, with a hundred tiny flowers that cluster together to give the appearance of a really big flower. They grow on large rounded shrubs, and come in varied colors, their purples and blues make for pretty fall flowers.
Calla Lily: A purple calla lily looks exotic and delicate all at the same time. Although they are expensive as compared to other fall flowers, their dark hues of purple and lavender will add the element of dark romanticism to your wedding celebrations. Read more on calla lily centerpieces.
Rose: An expression of love and devotion, all ceremonies are incomplete without the resplendent rose. One can find roses in deep burgundy and purples to cool coals and lavender, to the soothing lilac. Each hue of purple will add a classic touch to a centerpiece decoration or your flower garden. Read more on dark purple roses.
Aster: The singular delicately arranged purple petals with a yellow center of an aster, when grouped together can enliven even the darkest corner. There are many new cultivars one can choose to for an arrangement or growing. A flower bed of purple asters makes for an interesting ground cover when grown with a few delicate pinks.
Purple Coneflower: This sturdy daisy like flower radiates warmth when grown or grouped in clusters. The addition of pale purple coneflowers, purple hues and shades give this flower a delicate and a very light appeal. Mix and match with yellows or whites, or stand them alone to get that right look.
Iris: Although, a spring flower, some cultivars of iris are available with reputed florists as part of the purple fall flowers collection. There are very few flowers that can match an iris in intensity and depth when it comes to color. Read more on iris flower care.
Spiderwort: This three petaled deep purple flower works as an excellent filler for large arrangements. Mostly grown in clusters, they are inexpensive and easily available. There are quite a number buds on one stem, that is quite helpful in arrangements that require prolonged flowering.

available…I think what I might do is just a combination of different affordable flowers like the roses and dark purple irises. I was thinking of asking my florist to spray paint the leaves and other greenery in the arrangements a gold or copper metallic color. I have worked with this florist before on other events, and she has done that for numerous fall arrangements and it’s looked great! I even wonder if lavender or lilacs would be available….I guess I will have to experiment a little.
I LOVE the purple anemones…I never knew they came in that color!
Plus I found this: http://blog.branchescatering.com/uploads/2011/03/wine-mauve-and-blush.gif
Adding some deeper purple tones and maybe some copper/bronze sprayed leaves I think would be perfect. Or even wrapped in copper ribbon.

Definitely dahilas. I used pink ones in my bouquet paired with roses. Absolutely gorgeous!
