    Those are super similar to my colors!  I think you should stay with your original purple.  Too bold and things risk taking a mardi gras sort of appearance to me.

    @Gavinsmamma:  I like both of them, but I think the darker one brings out the butter colour better.

    I would stick with the lighter purple.

    If the swatch is “your purple” – then I’m guessing the venue can’t match it for linens. (Right?)

    I would go with the darker purple for the chair sashes and table runers – it matches some of the flowers in the inspiration bouquet.  The lighter purple is closer to the color of “your purple” – but I would feel like it would look like I tried to match the colors and couldn’t, so I got almost-close-enough.  The darker color looks complementary. 

    At least in the photo. – In person it could be very different!

    I like the darker purple because it brings out the butter yellow.  If you go with the lighter purple, I feel both colors would just be washed out – especially if the rest of your decor is of a lighter shade.

     

    EDIT:  Just saw the additional photos you posted and the dark purple does look pretty dark.  What does the rest of your venue look like?  Are the carpets and walls darker or lighter?  Are there a lot of windows?

    Seeing the sashes on the chairs i would definitely go with the darker purple. They’re both pretty though.

    I voted lighter until I saw the mockup of the chair. Definitely darker!

    Both are very pretty, But after the additional pictures, I’m still voting for the darker purple.

    But as I mentioned before – a photo can do funny things to colors… You’re the only one who has seen these in person.  (And it is your wedding!  So pick what you love.)
