By Jeeves, I've got it!

For my own wedding day, I'm still not entirely sure what color scheme I'm going to choose. It's so easy to pick out tons of beautiful wedding themes for other people, but when it comes to my own wedding, it's much much tougher. However, I think I've finally come up with something that just may work! Here's what I had to consider when going through my thought process:

1. My fiancée's favorite color is green.
2. My favorite color is purple.
3. I don't want the purple and green to look like Barney.
4. Our reception venue is black and silver.
5. Our wedding will be in late September, meaning that I wouldn't want too summery of colors.
6. Everything must be drool-worthy.

And voîla! My inspiration board is born. I am obsessed with little black bridesmaid dresses, so that is a must. While purple and green may be a bit, "My eyeballs are burning out of their sockets" when done too brightly and elaborately, I think I can pull it off with HINTS of the colors in muted tones. I can't overdo it. So right now I'm thinking: black, silver, dark purple & green. Ya? Ya? What do you think?

I say yay! I even like the purple and green when it's bright. Black BM dresses with touches of the purple or green will look fab.

Thanks ladies! I'll definitely keep working on it to get it down perfectly. Any other thoughts or ideas, don't hesitate to share!

I love it. It's gorgeous! I think the black and silver will really make the green and purple pop, but it's a good way! Thanks for sharing.

Looks like we are on the same page with planning...and our weddings are only be two weeks apart. I'm looking forward to keeping up with your process!

p.s.
My cousin's wedding is next weekend and their invitation is dark purple and green. I'll be sure to take pictures of the details and share them with you...if we figure out how to do that. :)

Looks good. You don't have to pick the standard 2 colors anymore. My colors and black, white, and silver/gray. Loving all your fun inspiration!

Elvi, thank you! Yes, two colors just doesn't do it for me. Needs more spunk! Your color scheme sounds so beautiful and elegant!
