What goes with color purple?

Jass, on December 6, 2010 at 5:13 PM Posted in Planning 0 52

I've been thinking about wedding colors, and FS mentioned it would be nice to have purple flowers, so it got me thinking about using purple as one of the colors for the wedding. What colors go good with purple? I pretty much like all shades of purple, blue, green, pink, orange, etc. And for some reason I can't pair up purple.

    Depends on the shade of purple. i've seen some lovely purple w/ blue, purple w/ red, purple w/ green. Also the neutrals: brown, silver, grey, black, white. Really just depends on the look you want and shades.

    I think silver would look nice, and I'm sure there are others that would go well, I'm just not thinking of any at the moment.

    I love purple and my colors were originally purple and silver/white cuz FH didn't care but then he changed his mind and his favorite color is green. So I changed my colors to purple and green. In the beginning i thought they wouldn't go nice together but then I found a really nice green to go with the purple Smiley smile

    Red or of a red-ish hue always compliments purple.

    @Tee- Thanks for the link. I do like the darker purple similar to the one you posted. And I like purple/green combo, that's very nice.

    My flowers are silk,but there are alot of purples and ivory/white and she threw in lots of wildflower type pieces to make it look more natural I guess.I like my flowers,but not everyone likes silk.....

    I wish Carmen were on here, she had a lilac color I believe paired with a mint green color and they looked so beautiful together!!

    Believe it or not, purple is actaully a neutral, It goes with everything. It reall depends on the shade of purple though.

    My colors are royal purple, chocolate and ivory. I think it depends on the shade of purple and time of year for what would go together.

    Purple goes with just about anything. A deep eggplant goes well with a navy, or a burgundy.

    A royal purple goes with blue.

    A lilac can look very pretty with a pale blue, a mint/sage green or pink.

    I would avoid oranges though. I woudl stay away from yellow because when I think purple and yellow- I think bad high school cheerleading uniforms.

    But what about just simple black, white and purple with a gold or silver to accent it?
