Planning a Purple Wedding – Purple Details

Purple Wedding Attire

In addition to the usual sashes and piping try some purple hair accessories.  Flowers, ribbon and purple jewels are great choices. How about a lavender dinner jacket for the groom? Colored shoes are very much in style for brides right now. Deep purple bridesmaid dresses pair well with a bright yellow bouquet and matching shoes. Try purple pocket squares against white or gray tuxes or purple boutonnieres against any tuxedo.

Wedding Invitations and Paper

The Lacey 2-Layer Wedding Invitation makes a wonderful introduction to your purple wedding. Try something a bit bolder but still feminine like the Cassandra Wedding Invitation.  Looking for something a bit more formal? Custom design your own Folio Wedding Invitation with your purple wedding color palette.  Folio invitations come in so many shapes and sizes and are fully customizable.  They are a great way to help your guests keep all the information for your wedding day organized.

Flowers to Consider

Hydrangeas and plum calla lilies are popular choices for the purple minded bride to carry in her wedding bouquet. Purple veronica and orchids make for bold bouquets or centerpieces with an organic look and feel. Dahlias and roses come in a few different shades of purple as well. Purple lisianthus and lavender are also popular wedding flower choices in purple color schemes.  Go to your florist armed with a list of your favorites and pictures of bouquets and centerpieces that inspire you.

Your purple wedding is sure to be one to remember.  Tie in some silver and gray accents to any purple color scheme to pull everything together.  Gold also works well with most color schemes based on purple. Experiment with different shades of purple and you might be surprised at how gorgeous the results are.
