Plum Royalty

A place like Oheka Castle or Bourne Mansion  is the perfect canvas for rich plum, gold, and dark brown. 

Set the tone with embossed invitations or by using a monogrammed wax seal on each envelope.  Bridesmaids dresses are floor length and a little more structured (no chiffon this time), and men are in classic tuxes. This scheme is also a flower lover’s dream. Think of exotic flowers like Cymbidium and Vanda Orchids paired with tinted hydrangeas (like the picture in the upper right corner). For towering centerpieces, add gladiolus and snapdragons to create extra height. Gold Chiavari chairs are perfect for table settings, with pintuck or crinkle taffeta linens. For extra ambiance, add gold uplighting, gold place cards and table numbers, a string quartet for the ceremony, and a 12-piece orchestra for the reception to make your guests feel like they are truly enjoying a night of American royalty.
