    Hi all, I'm trying to pick wedding colors. I know I want a deep purple color as the main one (matches my engagement ring!), but I'm not sure what else. I'd like them to feel a bit tropical together, but our wedding won't be on the beach, so it doesn't need to be super beachy.

    I've seen a lot of lime green. I think they look good together, but I'm not really a lime green person. What other colors do you think would work? Magenta? Some kind of blue?

    Any ideas will help!

      A silver might look nice with the purple

          The colors at my wedding were purple, orange and lime green.

          If you're not into lime green, other colors that would work well :
          bright pink
          turquoise blue

            OMG you can pretty much do anything with purple. I personally like silver/gray but if you want to go brighter green or orange. anything. I like theknot.com, it may help you look at pics

                  My wedding is purple...well its more of plum. Plum, peony pink, silver and ivory. I am having accents of bright green like mums and such in the centerpieces. I'm not a huge fan of green but I really like how bright green goes with the whole scheme. You can also look into purple and gold, or believe it or not I saw a wedding on the knot with purple and chocolate brown and it looked nice. The possibilities are endless.
