{Wedding Colors I Love}: Shades of Plum!

Plum is simply perfect, I say! Dreaming of a color that will bring pizzazz to your upcoming wedding and/or party? Consider this gem of a hue! With it's obvious charisma there's no mistaking that this is the sort of color that brings romance to life. Looking for a color that oozes elegance and that ''oo, la la'' factor? This just might be the perfect color for you!

Plus when it comes event styling, there is no shortage of pretty ideas to pair with this color palette. I particularly love the idea of using shades of purple like plum and lavender. Monochromatic paletes like this one have a way of catching the eye! Plus it's super easy to pull together a palette that includes shades of one color. Oh, and I cannot go without mentioning the playful patterns we've incorporated here. Because who doesn't love polka dots paired with gingham? Can't say I'm not seriously smitten with this look! So what do you think? Are you liking this pretty palette?
