Wedding Wednesday - Plum and Silver Wedding

Welcome to this week's edition of Wedding Wednesday! Each week Kati of The Finer Things and I chose one invitation and present two unique inspiration boards. Today we have selected a plum and silver invitation from FineStationery.com. This color combination would be lavishly lovely for a winter or fall wedding set in the evening. I can just imagine the beautiful glow of candlelight against silver...

- Wedding gown and bridal bouquet - I absolutely love this dress for today's theme. The silver accents and glow make it just stunning. The purple hued bouquet is made up of anemones, wax flowers and clematis leaves all brought together with an ornate ribbon.
- Groomsman boutonniere - Simple purple boutonniere for the groom and his groomsmen [via Style Me Pretty]
- Silver beaded wreath surrounding 3 votives - I spoke above about the glimmer of candlelight off of silver elements and this is exactly what I was talking about. A similar idea would be to place candles atop mirrors. Would look great on your reception table, your buffet table, your ceremony altar, your guest book table, etc.
- Purple floral centerpiece and purple place setting - If you'd prefer a floral centerpiece, consider a simple purple anemone arrangement in a low square vase or wooden planter. The antique plum plate really makes a standard white place setting pop.
- Purple candles - Carry your colors and the shimmer of light into other areas of your ceremony and reception with these tall purple candles and glass hurricanes.
- Customized wine - Pick and customize your label and your wine selection at Personal Wine. This would be a great favor, addition to each table or gift for your wedding party.
- Modern silver circle wedding cake with purple accents [found via Lemiga]
- Favor - Candy favors packaged in purple boxes and adorned with a ribbon in a contrasting purple hue.

Make sure to stop by The Finer Things to see Kati's edition of this week's Wedding Wednesday. Her post is filled with great ideas to help you plan your plum and silver event.
