    You really don’t know what kind of shoes they will have so I think it’d be too difficult to do the shoe clips. It’d be cute, but not necessary.

    I think the bouquets/bouts will be enough for the wedding party. I’d just make sure to also decorate with some purple. You could, if you wanted, do a purple brooch for each of your BMs to wear on their cardigan. I think that’d be cute. Or maybe a purple hair accessory.

    Maybe purple pashminas for the girls? If your wedding is in October they can double as  the splash of purple you want + keep the BMs warm if it’s chilly that day!

    @xlittlemissbridex:  Any idea where this wedding photo was taken? Not to threadjack, but that place looks SO familiar and I’m not sure why.

    @xlittlemissbridex:  Thanks! I have never been to Georgia but realized why it looked so familiar–that shot looks (to me anyway) just like Downtown Tulsa from the North. Weird. Beautiful wedding, though–and if you can get the guys to wear purple ties, i think it might be a neat, unifying touch.

    I think you should definitely do purple ties for the men.  I think that will add enough color by itself, but I like the brooch idea too.  So I say either just purple ties or purple ties and purple brooches.

    OKay so I was kind of in your boat.  My main color was orange and turquoise was my accent color.  I didn’t want to put the girls in orange because, well thats just way too much orange and they’d all hate me.  BUT i didn’t want the turquoise to take over either.  So I put them in champagne and made their bouquets mostly orange (MOHs was turquoise)

    THEN I ended up choosing colored shoes.  Two wore gold, two wore orange, and two wore turquoise.  Honestly it really completed the look to have the colored shoes.

    So I vote to make the shoe clips (or order them) and add them to the black shoes.  I think it would really complete your look!  If you want to make them easily, you can order just empty shoe clips off ebay for really cheap at attach flowers yourself. (I did that for my own shoes)

    Here is how my look turned out:

    (sadly the heels were all sunken in the grass, so the shoes don’t show too much in the pictures *sigh*)
