Purple Weddings



In love with purple? Purple weddings are a trend that’s in. Regardless of the season, purple will always be a regal and elegant wedding color. This day only happens once, so plan your fairy tale the way you dreamed it up in the fancy of your imagination. Create the happily ever after memory with these ideas for purple weddings.

Accent Color for Purple Weddings

The ability to match so many accent colors on the wheel is probably what makes purple weddings so popular. Whether you keep it rich and true or go with light and lavender, purple matches with almost every seasonal color you can imagine. Purple is often paired with gray to create an elegant fall wedding. Add some additional wow to your fall wedding with a little orange accent. Pink, green, yellow, lavender and lilac are lively spring and summer colors that compliment purple weddings. Add mauve and eggplant for a touch of winter.


Decor for Purple Weddings


Whether gazebo, arbor or pergola, decorate purple weddings with colorful flowers and greenery. A ceremony arch with hanging wisteria and green vines will add the needed touch to your ceremony space. Carry your flowers to the reception ballroom and liven up the setting with silver charger plates and purple napkins. Decorate the tables with over sized candelabras and top them with colorful accent flowers to perfectly match purple weddings. Dress your tables and tie your chair sashes with everything purple.


Wedding Attire for Purple Weddings


Wear your purple. Purple weddings are not just about the centerpieces and sashes. Dress your bridesmaids in uniform purple or alternate each bridesmaids in a variant shade. Dress your groomsmen in gray suits or a burgundy, navy blue, or kings robe purple tux. Fill your bouquet and boutonnieres with accent colors. Consider fringed tulips, orchids and calla lilies for purple weddings.


Rustic Purple Weddings

While purple weddings are thought of as formal occasions, no wedding does rustic better than purple. Keep it outdoors or bring it beneath the crystal chandeliers of a ballroom, because rustic is easy to do in any setting. It is all about your table decor. Bring in the lanterns and the spring flowers. Forego the tablecloth and roll out the runners. Basket weave your chair sashes on the backs of chiavari chairs or add curly willow chiffon for a dramatic effect. Display table cards inside of whitewashed picture frames, and add wooden accents for the extra touches. Amplify the rustic at purple weddings with wood slices for charger plates.
