    Hey Kaley! Congrats on your engagement! I don't think that that's too much. But if you think orange is too much, what other color were you thinking for your October wedding? Did you want to stick with the eggplant or were you thinking of changing that too?

    You're welcome Kaley. Did you like that color combination?

    Hi Kaley! I am sorry you are stressed. We are here to help!

    Eggplant is a lovely color, especially for your October wedding day! Are you looking to keep the eggplant color? And looking for accent colors?

    If so, you could consider pairing egg with silver, grey tones, and greenery in your florals too! Something neutral and cool to offset the deep, rich eggplant shade would be beautiful.

    I am sorry to hear about the wedding dress you were interested in being discontinued.

    When will you go dress shopping? Going in with an open-mind, perhaps you can find something in a similar silhouette or style to try on!

    One of my friends did dark purple and orange in the fall and it looked amazing. I’d send a pic but she doesn’t have any posted on social media.

    Hi Kaley! First of all, congrats!! Secondly, I am a big big fan of the eggplant color. The pictures above with the eggplant dress and the mix of orange flowers are gorgeous and perfect for the fall. If your bridesmaids are all different skin tones, that color will best suit everyone.
    Ive worn orange for a wedding I was in and since Im so pale it didn't look that great on me. Its your big day so the color choice is ultimately up to you, but you should still make sure that your girls feel comfortable in what they are wearing too!

    Kaley,

    What colors are in your venue? It can help to work with what's already there, unless it's a blank canvas then it's totally up to your creativity.

    We did a bit of orange with a lot of brown and gold shades. We wanted a more earthy look (and authentic pirate feel). Eggplant would have mixed in well. Maybe use a neutral (greenery, white or gold) then just sparingly use eggplant and orange? Anyhoo, here's our orange/gold/brown color palette which could work for a non-pirate wedding too!

    We are getting married at the buckeye barn in piqua Ohio! It's almost like a rustic, vintage wedding. I found these flowers that I think I'm going to use but I'm not sure what color for the guys or bridesmaids to wear. I still like the idea of the girls in eggplant but I'm not sure

    Wedding colors! 8
