Inspiration Board {Plum, Gray & Sage}

11 30 2010

We just love hearing from our soon to be bride readers and getting to know them a little bit better. Whitney is getting married next fall and has asked us for a little help with some inspiration images using her wedding colors. Here is what she had to say:

“I have finally made a decision on my wedding colors but need a little inspiration on how to incorporate them. The colors will be a deep plum purple & grey with a mossy green here and there. Do you have any pictures that would help me with my bouquet, ceneter pieces etc.? The wedding will be next September. Thanks for your help!” – Whitney

Have we mentioned before that we are in LOVE with purple?! Well we are and it’s definitely one of our favorite wedding colors for any season. For a fall wedding plum is the perfect shade of purple and beautifully accented with crisp gray and sage. We went for more of a formal feel for this inspiration but if you are wanting a more rustic or vintage feel it’s very easy to swap out a few details to change the mood. For a more formal event go for a classy presentation with the table settings and napkins. If rustic is more your taste for a fall wedding… add gray lanterns and mason jars with large blooms to your table set up. For your flowers we suggest using shades of white hydrangeas with accents of sage and plum to add a little color to your bouquet and centerpieces.

Must haves to get this look: Different shades of plum bridesmaid dresses, plum colored cake with sage floral accents, gray suits with plum ties, gray or silver table linens, letterpress invitations with a plum belly band, plum or sage sash, candles and more candles!

Thanks again for the email Whitney! Hope this helps with planning your wedding! If you need a little help with your color pallet just let us know and we would be happy to help!
