Even since seeing the plum and robin egg blue together in the Eco-Beautiful Weddings magazine, I've been searching for more images with that color combo but have found very few. The one above came from the Wedding Chicks and I love it! I've put together a few ideas using the plum as the main color and aqua (blue) as the accent color. These are colors I would love to use in my wedding so this post is mainly about what's in my head right now.
For the cake, DIY cupcakes seems perfect, decorated with blue frosting and a purple butterflies that sell at Crafta.com for $2.79 and that price is for a set of 25.
Flowers for this theme can be a bouquet with different shades of purple that are found all year long at fiftyflowers.com! If you try this don't be afraid of adding some green to bulk up your centerpieces since as you can see in the photos below, it won't over-power the purple that easily.
I choose an aqua vase for the centerpiece because with the purple it's so visually stunning! The vase you can find here at giantfood.com for $8.99!! Just look at it altogether! The blue vase really makes a statement and if you want to use plum tablecloths to create an even more enchanting look go here to linentablecloth.com to find them starting at $8.95!
The wedding party would most likely be in plum but I see the guys wearing plum ties with a black vest and jacket suit.
I'll update it as I go along but there is no denying that plum and blue make awesome wedding, color theme!!
