I knew if I ever got married again it was one thing I wouldn't give on this time. If you are using purple in your decor, dresses, flower etc I would LOVE to see some pictures!!!

    I love purple, everything I own is purple, and luckily my FH's favorite color is purple too. I knew I wanted purple and did not want to wear white, so I found a dress and have based all of the colors off of it. My main color is purple with blue, bronze, and grey as accent colors. I'm not getting married until September 2020 so I haven't gotten too many specifics other than we are having the wedding in my parents backyard with the ceremony in front of their backyard waterfall they were planning on building this year.

    Sorry for the major picture overload! I've attached what we've purchased! My flowers will be purple with lavender sprigs and eucalyptus, bridesmaids white with lavender sprigs and eucalyptus. Our table numbers will have a faux lavender wreath around them. My best friend is a graphic designer and she did our save the dates and will be designing our invitations. I am a Californian who went to college in North Dakota and fell in love with a boy from Minnesota. After college we moved to Arizona but I convinced him to move back to Minnesota so I had to incorporate as much Minnesota love as I could. Our accent color is grey. We're playing up the greenery and natural scenery of our venue which is a nature center, so we're also trying to minimize our carbon footprint with the items we use (so bare minimum decor) since our reception hall has full glass wall windows that overlook a meadow. Our ceremony is out in the amphitheater - also surrounded by nature. koozie frontPurple hues for your big day 6

    Purple and rose gold. Purple is my favorite color as well. Where did you get the boutonnières if you don’t mind me asking?

    Our tattoo artist drew the artwork for our invitations based on matching tattoos that we have that he did for us so we are using that red and that purple as our colors. I was looking for a dress with a purple or black overlay but didn’t go that route. Our flowers are going to be dark with lots of dark purples and reds.

    Yeah, I new I didn't want a white dress so I looked for colored wedding dresses. Ended up finding an online boutique called Wedding Dress Fantasy. When I found it I fell in love with it, ended up basing all my wedding colors on it. It made choosing the colors really easy though.

    I have not ordered it yet, I will be ordering in January. I have already contacted them to talk about a few alterations and they sent me a free color swatch. Tova is really nice and very responsive to all of my emails.

    Our colors are lavender and gray! Bridesmaid dresses will be lavender, groomsmen will more than likely have a lavender vest and tie, there will be shades of purple in my bouquet and our linen will all complement that! Lavender has been my favorite color for as long as I could remember.

    I think purple & grey pairs nicely together, no matter what shade. We are doing Plum as our main color with a light grey. If you haven’t tried yet, David’s Bridal offers color swatches in various purples & greys. They are a dollar each in store & cost the same online (I believe you have to get 5). Put them side by side to see how you feel.
