My BMs also have dark purple dresses and they will be carrying white flowers. However, my other color is medium-light green so that is represented in the stems of the bouquet lol. I would suggest doing a mix of mostly white with a touch of orange. It’ll be soft and elegant.

I can tell you that if you’re hoping for a dark eggplant purple from ColorBox Eggplant, you’re probably not going to be happy.  Maybe I was expecting it to look as dark as the inkpad did, but I was a little disappointed.  I may still end up using it though.  I haven’t seen the StazOn, so I can’t give an opinion there.

Your colors sound similar to mine.  I’m doing eggplant, cantaloupe, and apricot, which I "borrowed" from a spread I saw in the Jan/Feb issue of Modern Bride.  If you’re going to need any eggplant cardstock, try crafterstoybox.com.  They have a gorgeous shade of dark eggplant that I haven’t been able to find anywhere else.

I feel your pain with the shades of purple. My colors are Dark/Royal Purple, black and silver/white. It amazes me how hard it is to get the right shade of purple and then for them all to match together.

My bridesmaids will be wearing black, with purple shawls, and white flowers and I am going to have a purple bouquet. I love your idea of adding in some orange. I might just have to incorporate that a bit.

On the stamp, I would go with the Royal Purple.

On another note, if you are as purple obsessed as I am, I figured out that I can have a purple cake. Not purple icing, but actual purple cake. I made one the this weekend and it actually turned out pretty good. It was white cake with violet food coloring paste (purchased at Wal-Mart).

Good luck with the shades of purple!

Hi, the colors of my wedding are eggplant, lavender, silver and magenta! I know what you mean with the shades of purples and the invites. Purple is my favorite color. Who thought it would be so hard to incorporate it to a wedding. Without being "Purple" overload, I chose a Jim Helm Bridesmaid or Best Man dress in truffle and paired it with purple, white and magenta flowers. Hope that helps. Good luck!

Hey this is color box violet embossed. It’s a very pretty purple and is a little darker than the photo shows. I’m using orange and purples as well.

I was just talking with my mom about too many shades of purple! While I understand your concern, my mom reminded me of lots of bouquets / color palettes / etc. that we’ve seen that use up to 5 shades of purple and it looks beautiful, so I’m not worrying too much about keeping the shades exactly consistent. Good luck with your ink colors!
