Eggplant, Raisin, Plum and Leaf

Spring palettes don’t always have to be light colors or pastel shades. This deep, rich,  delicious blend of purple tones could work just as well for a spring wedding as any other palette. The trick with purple is to go with a tertiary tone – not so much a ‘Purple Rain’ purple (sorry Prince!). Pairing those hues with a fresh color like leaf green makes it work for spring.

The bride and bridesmaids: The bride’s bouquet could be filled with purple flowers in various shades while green Cymbidium orchids with purple ‘throats’ would look really pretty against Eggplant or Raisin colored bridesmaid dresses.

The groom and groomsmen: The men could wear light-colored suits with interesting ties – plaid, striped or patterned – which incorporate the green and/or purple tones.

Stationery Options: Our Joy Save The Date (in Apple or Aubergine) would be a good option. For a wedding invitation, our Love Logo #15 invite (in Apple ink on White paper) would be great for a modern spring wedding.

We also posted an extended version of this palette on the Southern Weddings blog…see it here.

    China girl again. I love this too. Maybe I could scratch the blue dresses if I could have these colors. But, the church walls…should I make a palette that includes them?

    @Anna: Yes, your palette should probably incorporate the color of the walls since they will be so prominent in your photos. See the suggestions in the comments here: http://bit.ly/gH8cel
