my color scheme

As you know from my Pretty Purple post I was thinking about changing my sister’s (MOH) dress from pink to purple. I spotted this dress yesterday and fell in love with it.
I actually have a version of this dress but in black with sleeves. It’s one of my favorite and most comfortable dresses. It’s lightweight and fun but still formal enough for a wedding.

If I go with this dress, it changes my entire color scheme. I never really had one set but was pretty sure it would involve pink. Now that purple is highly likely I needed to change things up a bit and I think I came up with something that just might work.

I’m still torn because as much as I love pink, the purple and the grays look so good together. I told J that I’d create another board with the other color schemes that I was thinking of so he could help me choose. I’ll post them soon so I can hear your opinions too!

    that dress is fantastic! The purple and gray does look very pretty… if you wanted to keep pink in there could you have purple and gray as the main colors and then just a few pink accents like with the flowers and such?

    Obviously I think purple is BEAUTIFUL. And definitely unique for a destination wedding (is it just me or do most people seem to go for blue or coral?). I agree with Tara, little splashes of pink here and there would look great!

    Well dang! I can always count on you girls for help!

    Tara – thanks for the suggestion. I’m gonna put together a board with some pink accents and see how I like it.

    Miss Purple – totally with you about that. I’m trying to stay away from the typical destination wedding kind of theme. I think purple is a great choice for you and me both! 🙂 Oh and cute find! The only thing is I’d take the bow off the waist, it was a bit much.

    thanks all!
