I would bring out mostly the purple color in the flowers, etc.

Purple seems to be the IN colour right now. When we were looking for my girls bridesmaid dresses, all we could find in stores was purple and black!

Moneypenny that is amazing fabric! Will that be for your table linens, or just runners? I am a purple girl, I think my guests would find it weird if I had another color. Here’s my little inspiration board. [attachment=643539,83878]

@ Amethyst – It’s actually gonna be my tablecloth!  It’s not quite as busy as it looks in the swatch–there is a lot more white space.  There are also only going to be about 10 tables of 8 so I think it will not be too overwhelming.  I like how a friend said that instead of having flowers on the table, the table IS the flowers.  So I’m doing mostly little votives & probably a single big purple carnation pomander in a black (possibly white) tall thin vase.  So, that’s the vision! 

(PS I considered runners, but they said they couldn’t make them in that fabric…but I’m also excited that it will be so bold & colorful!)

heres some pics along the lines of my colors, an amethyst purple with what i call a ‘fresh’ green and ivory. my girls will be wearing purple and holding green and ivory flowers, and my bouquet will have purple in it as well as green and mayve ivory. the tables will have tall cylinders with floating orchids, some tables will be have green and ivory, some green and purple and others ivory and purple…like the one pic but taller thinner vases, with crystals at the bottom and floating candles at the top. cant wait to see it al come together!! ive always been such a purple girl…i wish i could wear my girls’ purple dress myself, lol!!

I love the amythyst.  I thought it was a lighter purple….but I love those BM dresses.  That’s one I would actually wear again!

 

And to set off my purple theme…i rocked my purple suede knee-high boots in my E-photos! LOL

Another one with purple and green here! Laughing Our colors are eggplant/lavender/lots of shades of green/ivory. The guys are wearing grey tuxes, and the girls wearing eggplant dresses and carrying white/cream and green bouquets, and I’m carrying an all white/cream bouquet. Sometimes I toy with the idea of a purple bouquet but I really love the classic look of a white bridal bouquet! 

Have any of you seen this purple throated calla lily? It’s perfect for bouts at a purple themed wedding!
