Mine are celedon (a light green) and ivory.  We’re getting married at a lake, so the green seemed "lakey".  That was my inspiration. 

Dark purple/plum sounds like really good colors for a winter wedding.  I think the ivory would look nice and if you used a green sparsely, it wouldn’t look too much like mardi gras.

OUr wedding colors are Red and White, my FH is a huge Redwings (and by proxy I have been sucked in! GO WINGS!) fans so we thought it woudl be fun to have a hint of a hockey them for the wedding. We’re really just trying to bring in elements of our own personalities throughout the wedding,  I wasn’t really into the red and white at first, I wanted a lipstick pink and brown, but it’s growing on me a lot. There are so many beautiful flowers and Bridesmaid or Best Man in red that it’s making it a lot easier in planning. I really love it now!

we are doing navy & yellow.  I think they are great colors for a summer wedding on lake michigan, bm in bright yellow dresses and guys in navy suits, blue hydrangeas, still over a year away, but lots of ideas about how to incorporate the maize & blue!  (I’m a michigan alum as are the majority of my family & friends)

Our colors are black, white and canary yellow. I love the classiness of simple black and white, and yellow has always been one of my favorite colors, and it just adds a nice POP to everything. I googled "black and yellow weddings" and all kinds of inspiration boards came up. Maybe you could do the same with colors you are considering? I think plum with champagne or ivory would be really pretty.

Ours are Black and White with shades of Red as the accent color. There is something about the colors Black and White. I absolutely love them and then when you mix a bit of red, Yowsah! Depending on the shade of red too it can be classy, sexy, vintage, etc.

Good luck with your color choices!

mine are Gold, cream, brown and accents of green. I kind of came up with the colors surrounding my wedding dress which is champagne and gold, so I took the gold from there. I wanted brown cause it would make our venue look amazing. cream just to make the brown and gold pop. and the green because its my favorite color, and my Fiance and his wedding party are wearing green kilts so wanted some greens here and there (my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, some decor, etc etc)

having plum purple with lime is becoming popular. to avoid the mardi gras look, make sure you go with a darker purple and a lime that is brighter than your average green.

I’ve chosen dark purple (eggplant) and champagne as my colors and we are are working lots of natural greenery into the decor but not having anything printed with greens. PM me if you are interested in some pix.

my colors will be navy blue and silver.   Simple and calming.   I thought about a blue and yellow theme too but a lot of schools have that color.   Want something different.

My colors are deep plum, lavender & lime green. I have plenty of inspiration photos, its hard to narrow them down! Roguesparkle is right, its becoming much more popular – to my dismay, haha! Anyway, this weekend my mom did some mock-up floral arrangements with purples and greens and they looked really pretty and soft. I think if you have soft colors to break it up, it doesn’t look Mardi Gras at all.

My wedding is over a year out, so I haven’t settled on colors yet.  I keep changing my mind!  I think we’ll probably end up doing black and white with pops of aqua.

I love daniellemybell’s colors!  So pretty!

The only other idea I had was to do the deep eggplant with ivory and an antique gold.  Do you have a venue yet?  That might help you.

I think the dark purple paired with a yellowy lime green, somewhat of a pale sage, would look lovely.

Or!  How about the dark purple with a light grey.  Very modern.  Again, your venue may dictate your color scheme.  (Ours did.)

Tentatively, I’m thinking of plum and mustard… I wouldn’t have thought to put these colors together, but got inspired by these lovely letterpress invitations:

Ooh! I’m also attempting to do purple and green without gong Mardi Gras! We’re going for more of a vintage feel, so I think the shades of green and purple will keep it save. There will be ivory, light green, lavender, and some plum/purple.

Here’s some non-Mardi Gras lime and purple action for you: http://finestationery.blogspot.com/2009/03/spring-awakening.html
