Inspiration Board {Plum, Gray & Sage}

We just love hearing from our soon to be bride readers and getting to know them a little bit better. Whitney is getting married next fall and has asked us for a little help with some inspiration images using her wedding colors. Here is what she had to say:

“I have finally made a decision on my wedding colors but need a little inspiration on how to incorporate them. The colors will be a deep plum purple & grey with a mossy green here and there. Do you have any pictures that would help me with my bouquet, ceneter pieces etc.? The wedding will be next September. Thanks for your help!” – Whitney

Have we mentioned before that we are in LOVE with purple?! Well we are and it’s definitely one of our favorite wedding colors for any season. For a fall wedding plum is the perfect shade of purple and beautifully accented with crisp gray and sage. We went for more of a formal feel for this inspiration but if you are wanting a more rustic or vintage feel it’s very easy to swap out a few details to change the mood. For a more formal event go for a classy presentation with the table settings and napkins. If rustic is more your taste for a fall wedding… add gray lanterns and mason jars with large blooms to your table set up. For your flowers we suggest using shades of white hydrangeas with accents of sage and plum to add a little color to your bouquet and centerpieces.

Must haves to get this look: Different shades of plum bridesmaid dresses, plum colored cake with sage floral accents, gray suits with plum ties, gray or silver table linens, letterpress invitations with a plum belly band, plum or sage sash, candles and more candles!

Thanks again for the email Whitney! Hope this helps with planning your wedding! If you need a little help with your color pallet just let us know and we would be happy to help!

    FYI: I LOVE PURPLE TOO! Whitney- I used BBJ Linens for my recent wedding and used a plum and damask print. They are fantastic if you haven’t checked them out.

    Very nice inspiration board… always love what you can do with purple especially with the smokey tones! Would love to bring this one into reality:)

  3. I think the plum is so nice with the sage and grey. I’ve seen it some with brighter greens, but the duller colors really do add a bit of sophistication that is so nice!

    I LOVE the suit and tie for the groom. I am also planning my wedding with these similar colors. Only more of a mosey green and pops of the dark purple color and gray, even a little darker tan color. I have been wanting to know where in the world to find that suit and tie. It is a popular picture for idea boards. It has to inspired my wedding design. Does anyone have any idea where to actually purchase it?
