Purple is one of the most popular colors for weddings – eggplant is a chic take on the hue. Teamed with black, it makes for a stylish and polished look. Add a metallic or incorporate lighter shades of these two hues in the details.
How To Use It: If you’re worried this rich combo will be too dark for a wedding, anchor your palette in eggplant and accent with black. This is especially easy to accomplish if you’re hosting a black-tie affair. Black and ecru invitations, black bow ties, elegant deep purple calla lilies, and a simple cake will keep things fancy. Looking for something more laid-back? Black-and-white anemones are the perfect flower choice – charming yet beautiful. Incorporate the black hue in chalkboard details, perfect for your ceremony program or your menu. Put eggplant touches in unexpected places, like the groomsman socks, colored glassware in your table design or your blackberry fizz signature cocktail.
