Breath!! 🙂


I am the SAME way.  Our color combos and themes have changed and evolved over the last few months.  I think we’ve nailed down what we are doing.  We wanted to tie into a Southern/rustic feel because our venue is a barn, but I also felt like we needed a little glam (that’s just my personality).  So, we are going to do more of a Southern sparkle theme.  Our colors will (likely) be mint green, blush, champagne and gold.  




I pretty much stalked my venue’s Facebook account for new pictures of weddings (and old ones!), as well as Pinterest.  I just took everything in until I found elements of everything that I wanted & tried to mesh them.

Also, I think plum and silver are fine for a March wedding!  If you want to add a little spunk, why not throw in a bold accent color, as well (spring green, hot pink, orange)?  Or why not pair plum with another color and throw in a silver/silver glitter accent to give you some glitz? 🙂

@des1982:  Are you familiar with http://www.theperfectpalette.com ?    and http://www.design-seeds.com ?

They are both websites that help with developing a color palette.

On Perfect Palette

 you can scroll down on the right, click on your color, they have plum and light plum, then see all the palettes they have developed that feature plum. If you want to use the black napkins, choose a palette that has some black in it. You can always add a sprig of something plum colored to the napkins to tie them in with the palette.

On Design Seeds, click on palette search, then play around with the search by color value tool till you get the plum you want, click on Go get it

I like the idea of plum, lavender, grey, and pink. I think that if you love the mason jar centerpiece idea that you should stick with that regardless of what your mom says.

When I picture your colors at a wedding, I think more of a vintage theme than a rustic one.  Does that appeal to you?  

I think you could do silver/gray table linens with black napkins… then bring in plum/lavender/dark purple/ivory flowers in your centerpieces.  

Maybe find old silver pieces to use as vases, lots of silver candlesticks and mercury glass.  You can find plenty of tutorials on how to make your own mercury glass vases and candle holders online… so that would be inexpensive.  

You could even give a nod to the roaring 20’s or Gatsby by adding some blingy candle holders, pearls and feathers to your decor.  

If you want to do rustic and keep the mason jars… I think you could still use the plum and silver, but the black would have to go.  Maybe bring in a blush pink…. then you could go very romantic, vintage, rustic with lots of lace, mason jars, hydrangeas, etc.
