Plum Wedding Color – Four Fantastic Choices

Plum is a luscious wedding color you might want to give serious thought to. While it can be paired with a variety of colors, for this blog post I have focused on Shades of Plum along with Plum and Gray, Plum and Olive and Plum and Orange.

Plum is similar to pink (dark pink, pale pink, etc.) in that it has a range of intensity, but is still called “plum”. In fact, in its lighter shades it is very close in color to both pink and lavender. I think we generally think of plum as being a saturated and rich, dark color and that is what I have used mostly in the collages.

I am a huge fan of purple but there is a special sophistication to plum that is very appealing.

Shades of Plum Wedding Color – My first collage is “just plum”.  The tablescape photo in the collage is a good one in which to see the range of plum shades. The colors range from the very dark plum in the flowers to the light plum in the tablecloth.Plum_Wedding_Color

Plum and Gray Wedding Colors – This combination can be a good choice for winter, as shown in the photo of the bride with her bridesmaids. You can also use silver with the gray. Plum_and_Gray_Wedding_Colors

Plum and Olive Wedding Colors – I admit that plum and olive is not a combination that is seen a lot, but it creates a refined and unique wedding palette. As I said at the beginning of this post, plum can create a sophisticated palette … and plum and olive illustrates sophistication to the max!Plum_and_Olive_Wedding_Colors

Plum and Orange Wedding Colors – For a stunning color palette for fall, you really can’t go wrong with plum and orange. Orange is somewhat expected for fall but the addition of plum takes it to a new level!Plum_and_Orange_Wedding_Colors

    Well the plum and olive combo is gorgeous! I’m looking at plum and teal with a little gold thrown in for accent… but this olive has me thinking… 🙂 what would you recommend for the groom to wear? Not formal, so a suit or something of the like. Thank you! Love the blog!
