I am having a tough time because I chose Victorian Lilac for my BM dress colors but now I don''t know what to pair it with. I don''t mind pink....but purple and pink together in one room would be too much pastel. So...there is orange or yellow.....but those seems so harsh and this is an August wedding.

I''m looking for a basic color or two to go together in a package.

Oh and I don''t care for purple and blue.

Since my BMs havn''t bought thier dresses yet.....FI and I were thinking of changing the color to Celedon!!! I would SO be a pink and green bride if that were to happen :) Before I do that, though.....is there a color that goes with Victorian Lilac (a smoky purple) that compliments it but doesn''t scream pastel?


aarrggg!

OK... if it were me... and I had that Victorian Lilac... (smokey purple.. ) I would pair it with charcoal grey... or Navy Blue... my first choice would be the grey!

Hope that helps...

Lillac would look great with A darker purple and yellow amd of course ivory or white as well. I love lillac with deep purple and yellows. (I was actually looking atthat for my own wedding). It''s a very rich combo.

You could do purple with a light/spring green and ivory or white. I think that is very interestting.

Or just stick o lillac and white/ivory. That would be simple and very pretty.


Here are some photos with different purple/lillac flowers and cakes from the knot so you can see these colors in action:

Purple with white

This one has pink in it too, but you could always take that out

This one is paired with lilac dresses already... and you could change the blue for more of the light purple

You know what else would be really nice: Lillac and chocolate. Yum!
