  • Wedding: April 2013

I’m using purple, although more of an eggplant/deep purple color. We’re having the groomsmen in black tuxes with matching purple ties & vests to the bridesmaids. Charcoal gray tuxes looked really awesome with dark purple, but they were substantially more expensive.

We’re using silver and gray as an accent, although I wouldn’t really call it one of my primary colors. But we’re having silver chiavari chairs, Fiance is wearing a silver/gray vest & tie (didn’t like the white), etc. Just when I need an off-set color, a shade of gray or silver is it. 

Here’s my caution on purple: Just prepare yourself now that it’s going to be nearly impossible to find exact matches in everything you do. And that’s FINE! Mutiple shades of purple make a really pretty pallette. But you will make yourself crazy trying to get everything to match perfectly (invite, flowers, linens, printed materials, etc).

Our colors are eggplant and ivory. My bridesmaids will be wearing purple. Dessy dresses come in sooooo many shades of purple. The groomsmen will all be wearing black tuxes. They won’t be wearing any purple, but that’s because I don’t like the look of the GMs wearing colored ties and vests.

@Taylor25:  I didn’t say anything about long dresses. I just said the Dessy has plenty of shades of purple. They have long and short dresses.

  • Wedding: June 2012

My wedding was this past June and our colors included eggplant/burgandy purple too.

I am not sure if you are planning a very formal wedding or more on the semi-casual side? For us, we were going for less formal but still “dressy” but factoring in the time of year as well. Our ceremony was outside, early evening in the middle of summer so my bridesmaids wore solid color eggplant purple long flowy dresses, and my husband and his guys all wore light grey suits with a multicolor stripped eggplant/silver ties.
