    Hey everyone,

    I was thinking of having green and purple as my wedding colors/ bridesmaid dresses. I have been having mixed reviews about the colors(initially everyone was like what? those colors don't go but then when they see them to gether they said it is very nice). My dilemma is how do I make thee colors work? Do I use royal purple and lime green, lavender and sage, different shades of purple and accents of green or vice versa, etc.?? Should the MH wear one color and BM's wear the other colors or should the MH wear a sash to distinguish her role? Please HEEELLLLPPPP?!!?

      I think the lavendar and sage would be beautiful. My colors are lavendar and black...it looks tropical yet elegant...I think your sage color would tie in well. Not sure if you see the same invite consultants tag at the end of your post but this advertisement is in a sage and bright purple...you can kind of get an idea and I think it looks great...just my two cents.

        I think that would be beautiful! I LOVE LOVE this blog!

        Look at her ideas on the purple, green and aqua (scroll down to middle).


        It's so pretty!

              My bridesmaids are wearing a really nice dark purple (eggplant) and their having green spider mum bouquets wrapped in purple satin. Most of my table decor is in the deep purple and the green (chartreuse) will be used as accents in the flower arrangements.

              I think both colours will pop against the blue of the ocean and their nice rich colours which gives it an elegant but funky feel.

              If you like it, go for it! Who cares what others think!

                  Thank you all for your suggestions. I am so much more at ease. What do you think that the MH should wear the green and the BM's wear the purple? I got some swatches today and I am excited now.

                    i love the color combo. how many BMs are you having? I ask b/c it might make a difference, if you have 3 let's say, it might be too much to have MOH in one color and just 2 others in another color. In that case I would do a sash for MOH, kinda rambeling (lol) does that make sense?

                      I like royal purple and lime green.
