Color Inspiration: Eggplant, Plum, Charcoal and Gray

I may not be a fan of the winter season but it certainly makes for gorgeous weddings! So today I'm bringing you inspiration for a winter wedding of purples and grays. That's right, sometimes it's better to stick to just two colors (especially if your intimidated by numerous hues!) and use varying shades of them. Some of the most beautiful weddings have a simple palette, and this concept could be one of them! Behold, a glamourous and sophisticated winter affair!

My favorite part of this entire inspiration board is the glen plaid groom's jacket with the eye popping plum tie, in fact that look is responsible for this entire concept (Shh!)! Then men I imagine working these ensembles like to have a lot of fun (see the mismatched socks and converse sneakers) while the women error more on the sophisticated side. Opposites attract, no? I adore this deep, dark eggplant calla lilies and what better for a winter wedding then fingerless gloves with fun fur pom poms!

This table set up by JL Designs (can you tell I'm a huge fan?) with gray linens, playful eggplant pillows and glamourous white leather chairs... what's not to like? Fill sparkling silver vases with more of those near-black calla lilies and mix it up with purple glass votive candle holders, and bring in the "fun" element with a few funky fabric branches. The motto of this wedding: Eat, drink and be glamourous.
