Well, my daughter -- the older one -- and I went shopping for her wedding dress fabric.
Since they are planning to elope it won't be too formal.
She chose a pale silver satin. It will be three piece -- a tiered skirt, maybe mid calf length or shorter with a strapless top and a mauve organza capelet.
Her only concern is the mauve might clash with her purple hair.
I'm sure she will be a lovely -- if somewhat unusual -- bride.

Maybe she should dye it seafoam green for the elopement!

I thought you weren't supposed to know if she was eloping? I had similar problems with my hair - except the faded brown went nastily brassy compared to the plum jacket so re dyed myself brown.
Go for the purple hair - wear your hair with pride!
Fancy joining in Dorothy? a purple rinse say.....
love and kisses, Jan

I'm beginning to think eloping would have been a smart idea. I could never get away with it, though! I'd have to bring the family with -- and really, our wedding isn't going to be too much beyond family and close friends, anyway. The dress sounds like it will be beautiful -- good luck putting it together! She is sure lucky to have a mom like you!
