So, my wedding colors are dark purple, silver and white. The Bridesmaid or Best Man are wearing dark purple. In making the boquets, they currently consisit of lavender, white and dark purple flowers. I also ordered from the florist lavender rose petals for the aisle and to sprinkle on the tables. I thought that lavender in the boquets would give good contrast against the dark purple dresses.
My concern, now that I think about it, is since lavender is not one of my colors (and I already have 3 colors i’m using), is this going to look too random/not planned to have some lavender colors. For example, with the table setting we have dark purple table cloths, silver chargers/cavalari chairs, for the centerpiece: there will be white hydrangea mini bunches floating in a bowl with silver flowers and sprinkled on the table around the bowl would be lavender flowers. Do you think that would look okay????
Everything is ordered, so i think i may just be freaking out, but I would really appreciate your opinions 🙂

Don’t freak out, the lavender will look great. A lot of brides are moving towards colour palettes anyway, so you have nothing to worry about. I think it will turn out beautifully.

The lavender will look fine – people never have the exact shade of a single color for everything so it will just look like you have various shades of purple (perfectly normal). Don’t stress yourself out over it!

Sounds beautiful! I may be biased though, because purples were my colors! (No silver though)…lavendar and dark purple look beautiful together. I think it sounds great.

I think it will look nice. My colours are berry, sage green, and baby pink. It was hard to find flowers in a berry colour so they will be mostly fuschia.

we’re using shades of purple/lavender and white. so of course i think it will look great 🙂 but really, lavender buds are so delicate anyway, it’s not like you’re having a HUGE lavender flower out of nowhere. you can second guess yourself forever!

I think the lavender is a nice contrast. You just have a color palette more than actualy colors. : )

I think that you’re variety of color will add depth and richness to your wedding. If everything were the same three colors it would be very matchy-matchy – but different shades of colors actually add more texture.

Excellent choice in colors! We are doing the same colors, purple, grey/silver and white. My bridesmaids are wearing pewter dresses and are going to carry white bouquets but I’m planning to have a mixture of purples in my bouquet. Our invitations are going to have multiple shades of purple in them. We are going to get darker purple table linens with probably mint julep cups with maybe white and/or purple flowers inside. It’s hard to get only one shade of purple so I’ve decided to just mix it up and do different shades and use the grey as more of an accent color. It is good to have some other colors or shades in there to mix it up a little, in my opinion.I hope this helps.

Agreed that having lavender will in fact make it less matchy-matchy and even prettier! We have a palette of five colors and I’m wondering if I should incorporate more 😛 Yours won’t look too chaotic, it’ll look gorgeous!
