Wedding Colour Palettes - The Colour Purple

26 APRIL 2012 HAZEL ANDERSON

wedding wisdom purple flowers pictureThe colour purple. Isn't there a movie with Whoopi Goldberg with that name? ........This reminds me to put it back on movies to watch again list! Anyway back the main event, purple. This colour has a very emotional tie for me as this was the colour I picked for my (our) wedding.

Not so much a deep purple but a variation of it, lilac. A late summer wedding with lilac roses and wild flowers complete with a huge lilac castle wedding cake complete with turrets and flags to complete the picture. Not quite the traditional 'look' but unique and to suit us both! Purple was one of the first colours to be worn going as far back as the Romans and now the colour has a majestic connection with royalty.

Usually lighter shades for the summer and darker shades for the rest of the year work well. Because purple has so many variations it can be paired up beautifully with another two or three shade. Ivory and white both compliment purple and if you are feeling brave black can be striking and make a real statement!
