{A Wedding to Remember}: A Palette of Plum, Powder Blue & Gray

Plum and gray have long been a favorite color combination of mine, so I thought why not put a spin on this duo by adding in this unexpected shade of powder blue! I'm absolutely loving how this palette feels! For this wedding, I imagined groomsmen in shades of gray with neckties varying from purple to blue. And to coordinate the ladies would wear stylish gray chiffon dresses accented by accessories in plum! 

Some of the accessories I'm loving in this board are that awesome pair of purple heels, and that gorgeous handcrafted silk clutch by Etsy seller Bagatellesandco! And and who doesn't love that invitation design by Wedding Paper Divas! Definitely a fun and modern approach to wedding day style! How do you feel about this palette? Could you see your wedding coming together in these colors?

So how are you feeling about this palette of plum, powder blue and gray? I have to admit, I think it's one of the most unique palettes I've come across in a while. There is something so romantic and fun about this palette. Any brides-to-be out there who are considering it? You know I want to hear all about it! And as always, if you have a palette question...don't hesitate to ask!

Just posted on the role of color for our blog and this is one is amazing! I adore the plum tie. Would be perfect with a grey summer suit. This one is great for any season!

I chose this to be my color palette and one of my bridesmaids just sent your site to me. I loved the colors together but wasn't sure how it would all I know and I'm even happier with my decision! brilliant site!


These are the exact colors that I was planning on using for my upcoming wedding!!! I absolutely love them :) I was thinking about throwing in a splash of yellow but I can't decide if it's too much or not. What does anyone think???

I have been struggling to find a colour combination for my September 2012 wedding. All I really knew is that I didn't want traditional fall colours! I am pretty indecisive and have been having a hard time visualizing something unique, romantic, lovely and versatile. I believe I have found it! I'm really leaning towards this palette. Thank you for alllllllll your inspiration! Great page xo


This color combo is beautiful! Do you think this would work for a fall wedding? I fell in love with this color combination and was thinking of it for my September 2013 wedding.


I love this color combo, these will be my wedding colors. I'm having trouble finding the powder blue shade, what color would be closest to it? Thank you

I love this combo. do you have any ideas about mint green and maybe gray and then I want to add another color. I dont want Melon, or yellow. I am a redhead so I want something to go with my skin color nice
