279: A Plum Perfect Soiree {Silver & Plum}

August 4, 2009

{Plum & Silver}

Plum and silver really go well together ...wouldn't you agree? I created this board especially for Madison, a bride-to-be, from Arizona who recently contacted me to see if I could possibly help her invision the perfect look for her special day. She knew she wanted to use silver as an accent color but she was really struggling to determine the perfect primary color. So off to the drawing board I went....and after tossing around a couple of ideas I came up with this palette of plum & silver. I started this board with those beautiful plum bridesmaid dresses in mind! I just loved the pattern and knew that if I started with those- this palette would be just what she was looking for! I love this color palette because its simple! Essentially its one primary color with an accent color. Sometimes its just nice to keep things simple! And what's not to love about that floral wreath! I absolutely love it! Can't you imagine those for a summer wedding? Some of my favorite items in this board include the matching necklaces & earrings that I thought would be perfect for each lady in the bridal party as well as the gorgeous eggplant pashminas!

Those are very nice rich colors. I think I'd like them more for a winter wedding.

Wow! I loved plum before but I think I love it even more now ;) Thank you for including my invitation design (www.letterpunchdesign.com). Plum has been a huge color this year and I look forward to using it more.

My favorite is the "bouquet" with the tiny touches of green... that compliment the colors perfectly. Very nice

Fabulous, even more heavenly the darker the plum is and the greyer the silver becomes. Simply lovely.

sorry the links were broken for some reason? The picture on the top row with the short floral dresses is from David's Bridal. But it was last years collection so I'm not sure if they will have those available anymore. The long dress was from Bloomingdales.
