Purple has long been considered a "special" colour from the olden days, where it took a significant amount of effort to come about this colour dye and was set aside for royalty or landed gentry. It's a popular choice of wedding colour, especially in pastels and used for wedding invitations, decor, clothing and more.
Look around you, what strikes you as perfect may just be staring at you right in the face. Look at flora - lavender, hydrangeas, orchids, water lilies and even carnations hold beautiful shades of purple and are ideal as you can use them in other wedding aspects such as the decor and the wedding bouquets making then blend beautiful with ease. These looks can be further elevated by the style you pick -whether traditional, elegant, modern or themed. You will find that ombre shading is still very popular and can look very appealing when styled with other wedding items such as the wedding cake and even the Bridesmaid's attire. If you're looking for a unique look, choose purple wedding themes that feature styles and designs taken from Asian, Bohemian and even Steampunk inspirations.
