How about a swanky black-tie soiree to take us into the weekend? A palette of aubergine and pomegranate red, accented with platinum details, works well for both a fall and a winter event. I imagine plenty of glowing candles lining the aisle at the ceremony and the tables at the reception. A signature cocktail would surely include champagne…

Mood: timeless, swanky
Palette: plum, pomegranate, platinum

    Ooo, I love this one. It’s so rich. I actually just found Vintageglam’s wedding yesterday via her site (bottom left corner), the hairstyle is amazing.

    This palette feels rich and lush, I really love jewel tones in general but I never would have thought of using these two colors together, silly me because the board is gorgeous!

    Ranu,It’s actually just something that blogger does automatically when I post an image. I chose the gray color in my Blogger settings. I hope that helps!Kathryn

    I love this board! I’m doing jewel tones at my wedding only brighter since it will be springtime. I wish I had the time to put together a board for my wedding, I guess I should’ve worked on it before I planned almost everything!

    My girlfriend is using plum & more of a poppy red for her June wedding!! It's rich, but kind of funky with the brigher red. Very contemporary.

    So happy to see this board. When I told my mom I was using these colors for my wedding she nearly fainted. Now I can show her what it will really feel like. Lovely!

    This one’s getting bookmarked for sure. I’ve been thinking blue, white, and black, but I keep gravitating towards thinks like purple silk poppies.

    I love this board! I'm using it for my wedding this Fall…jewel tone flowers, charcoal/graphite dresses, in a 1920s mansion country house. This board was perfect inspiration!
