Purple Weddings | Introduction
Your wedding day is arguably one of the most important days of your life. It is a day where you want everything to be perfect and sometimes perfection is in the detail. Part of the detail is the colour scheme; the wedding invitations, the flowers, the bridesmaids dresses or the table settings. The choice of colour is not always just for aesthetic reasons, it is often a way of making a positive statement about who you are as a couple.
Brides who prefer the royal colour family are outgoing, tolerant, witty, fearless and charming. This versatile colour can be construed as sweet (lilac, lavender) or passionate (deep aubergine).
The colour purple is often associated with luxury and ambition. It also represents meanings of extravagance, grandeur, devotion, pride and magic.
Purple’s versatility makes it an excellent choice for a modern wedding. Mixing different shades of purple gives your colour scheme depth allowing you to select shades that suit your wedding entourage (bridesmaids, groomsmen etc.,) and that blend in beautifully at your wedding location(s).
For summer celebrations, purple looks fabulous when mixed with lime green or orange, and winter weddings look chic with colour palettes of purple, ivory and gold.
Purple is such a bold colour. Subtle hints of purple in the details are sometimes enough to tie the theme together without over doing it.
Our aim is to share with you some great examples of how the colour purple can be utilised to add a touch of sophistication and style to your special day.
