I'm looking for some input as to a background color to use in a wedding shoot for some formal shots of the wedding party. The bridesmaid's dresses are a deep purple (taffeta or something like) the bride is in white and the groom black. That's the basics. They have a black velvet curtain they want to use but I have questions about this - sure it'll make the bride stand out but how about the groom's shoulders?... Some kind of drapes to add? Ditch the black altogether? Or make it work with the right lighting? Any ideas I'd appreciate them!
