I am planning a relaxed daytime garden wedding. My favorite color is purple, but I’m a fan of green, and the “natural look”. My reception will incorporate lawn games and decorations will consist of flowers and branches – very simple and outdoorsy. Originally I planned to have my bridesmaids wear sage green dresses. Now I’m afraid they’ll look washed out, and that the color isn’t very flattering for all skintones. I have also thought about mixing plum and sage, but I’m not sure it will look cohesive. I’m now thinking of all plum, but for a daytime wedding – it seems too dark. Clearly I’m indecisive. 🙂 Has anyone seen a wedding with this combination? Any suggestions? I don’t think I’m open to any other color combinations unless someone has a great idea. (I’ll have 5 flower girls 5yrs and under, so I can also use them to add some color).
PS. because of the various location of my girls, I plan to give them a color (and perhaps length and fabric) from davids bridal and let them choose the style.

I think the plum would look nice for your bridesmaids. I think purple and green can look really nice together and that if you were to mix the two it would still look light and fresh.
I don’t think sage bridesmaids would be bad either though, you can use the plum as accent decor like sashes or something.

I love purple and green together! You could do a plumb dress with a sage sash.

my wedding colors are plum purple and sage green haha 🙂 Im having more purple and touches of the green. and it looks great so far. If you do it right they really will mesh well! Im having my Bridesmaid or Best Man wear purple dresses and their flowers will have both purple and green.

@future.mrs.schechter: That’s great! I am leaning towards the plum, and it’s great to hear someone else thinks it’s a good combo too! Thanks!

Plum dresses! I don’t think it would be too dark at all, and that way their bouquets and accessories can be sage. Green (especially sage) is a great accent colour. I can’t wait to see how you bring all these colours together. I really like this picture if you need some inspiration :

@so_said_ellie: Nice – I appreciate your enthusasium. I guess I’ll just have to see what my bridesmaids think. We’ll be looking at dresses together over Christmas when most of them are in the area – so hopefully there is a consensus then.
Any thoughts on mixing the colors? 3 bridesmaids in plum and 2 in sage (or visa versa)?

@Koala Bear: Thanks for posting this picture – it’s awesome! I do love the color, and I think it really pops with the green, especially outside against the green grass and trees.

The colors can work well together. My baby girl’s nursery is plum with hints of green and white. I would have never thought it would look nice without seeing it first.

I also think plum and sage will go well together! For the dresses, it’s true that plum does usually look good on anyone and it’s more flexible than sage. However, sage is also a beautiful color and can look very nice as a dress! Perhaps you should see what your bridesmaids think!
