Today officially kicks off the crazies of the shopping season which means we’re kicking off more winter wedding posts! There have been a few here and there because I couldn’t help myself, but now we’re in full swing… So today I wanted something perfect for right after Thanksgiving, just into December, something that works a little bit for fall and a little bit for Christmas and winter. And so… it’s the fabulously sexy eggplant (dark purple) and gold wedding palette!
The beginning of December is funny for a wedding. Is it Thanksgiving? Christmas? Winter? That’s what makes this palette choice a perfect mix. The “eggplant”, a rich deep purple, reminds me more of fall or late winter but blending it with gold makes me think a little more Christmas with the sparkles, lights and glam! So today it’s simple, I’m suggesting combining both for a winter color palette that’s both fancy (gold trimmed cake – first photo, gold sequin heels – second photo, elegant gold lined invites – sixth photo) but fally (eggplant flower boutonnieres – forth photo, purple and blush rose bouquet – tenth photo) with a little touch of winter to come (dark purple bridesmaids dress and winter bouquet – third photo). Sprinkle in some jewels, I love all things Kate & Company including this antique amethyst and gold wedding pendant (fifth photo), and amethyst bracelet (seventh photo). I also have a fab Etsy find in the form of the amethyst and topaz earrings (ninth photo)…. all in all our own little inspiration board (post) for the perfect winter (and fall) eggplant purple and gold wedding palette!
