The Ultimate Guide For A Fabulous Purple Wedding

Welcome back to another week full of prettiness! Today’s wedding inspiration comes from my favorite color – purple!!  A hot hue in weddings, this plum variation on the color is popping up at all kinds of events and “I do’s” are no exception. Mysterious and emblematic of royalty, purple is the color of choice for many brides around the world. Here's a carefully curate collection of purple wedding ideas to make your event memorable. (image source)
Don't like purple? No problem...grab these beautiful details and transform them to fit your color palette.
Decor. Purple is extremely versatile and will allow for a huge range of color options. You want a Spring/Summer wedding, great use the pastels. You want a Fall/Winter look, then there are plenty of rich, bold shades to pick from! You may want to brig it all around the decor (photo #1, photo #2 and pic #3) or incorporated in some contrasting touches (4th photo, image #5, photo 6). {visit my section Wedding Decor to see more ideas}





Look. Please don’t keep this a secret only in your d├ęcor… incorporate your color into everything! Start with your attire, bridesmaid dresses, groomsmen, and groom. I love the ladies dressed in purple, (this Lazaro is a great option) it takes a little pressure off the bride to incorporate more color than what she’d like in her attire. Keep your look simple with a purple sash white dress or go dramatic with a purple wedding gown. For your men, either a simple accented pocket square, vest, or ties (pic #4). They don’t have to draped in purple to match your girls, we actually want them to blend in! 
BouquetPolish your look with purple bouquets and you’ll have an ensemble to ensure all eyes are looking at YOU! (left, right) {check my series 25 Stunning Bouquets for more inspiration}
Food. Surprisingly, you’ll find a lot of purple foods for your menu, should you choose to take your theme to the table.  From eggplant to grapes, martinis and cake-pops, even ice-cream or soup puree, your table will look and taste great too!  Or scale back the theme and perhaps weave the color into your cake and/or cupcakes only. {visit my post Non Traditional Wedding Fodd to see more ideas}
Other Details. When it comes to bright colors, details make a big difference. I'm madly in love with this ring pillow that this bride used to incorporate a splash of purple into her destination wedding in Vegas.

  5. I didn't thought that purple would be good for wedding color. I haven't tried it on my clients, and also with my wedding itself.I thought that it was just a fierce color that will not contribute a festive wedding. But it seems that it is more elegant to see on the photos.

    Thanks!

  6. Purple is a color loved by many ladies, especially those ladies who are sophisticated. I love purple wedding, but I am not suitable for it. I am kind of bride in different types. Admire the brides for whom purple is designed. Congratulations.
