Hm. What about: Dark Purple, Red/Burgundy? That will tie in the chair color, the red will liven up the colors, and you still get your purple. How DARK are the burgundy chairs? That color can be so all-over-the-place.

@darlingggnikkie: Well, burgandy is a dark fall color.  My suggestion is to put an orange sash with the chair, or brown so that it could ‘tie it in’ a little more.  I think it would look awesome! It won’t class at all. My colors will be fall colors too^^

If you are worried about it, then go to the venue with some color/fabric swatches and play a lil. 🙂

@AmeliaBedelia: I totally agree! I love purple and red together. There’s something about it that’s unexpected, but so elegant looking.

More purple & red – my favorite color combo!

 

Or you could throw in some deep orange – this board has an exotic/Indian feel, but that color combo can also be very fall looking…

What about gold/ivory? Gold feels very fall to me. I think Orange can work with the Purple/Red combo, but you’d have to be more careful with it. Brown can always just sort of be thrown in there, not necessarily as a full-on color. I like the gold/ivory idea. It will also tone it down enough.

I LOVE dark purple and red/burgundy.  I almost did those colors but went with different shades of purple and black and silver (it is in a theater in august after all…)

What about a burnt orange instead of burgundy? I know the chairs are burgundy but it’s such a close color, it will blend nicely. Here are some ideas to keep the fall feeling for your Fiance and the purple for you!

@darlingggnikkie: I think it would be great if you could fint a print with a few of the colors in them. Of course that’s a DIY project. Figure out which colors you want to stand out most and use one of those. If you want it to feel like fall, I would use a fall color with accents of your purple everywhere. what about the orange or brown?
