Planning The Perfect Purple Wedding
Purple is a color that is historically and universally recognized as a royal color, and is ideal for today’s modern and sophisticated bride. If you want to add a touch of splendor to your special day, this might be the theme you are looking for. So have a look at the ideas given below to help you plan that perfect purple wedding you’ve been wishing for.
Tips On Planning A Perfect Purple Wedding
Purple Wedding Attire
Purple bridal gowns make a bride look regal. The ideal purple wedding gown would be a gown in a dark and rich shade of purple with delicate lavender or lilac accents. For brides that prefer a more traditional look, a white gown with purple accents like a purple sash, corsage, or purple jewelry would be a good choice.

White and purple flowers combine to make an exquisite bridal bouquet. Use white and purple roses or other flowers with a few delicate ferns to create this beautiful bouquet. Bridesmaids can wear dresses that are in the same color as the accents of the bridal gown.
For the bridegroom and groomsmen, a neat boutonniere of purple flowers to complement their black suits would be perfect. They can also wear purple silk shirts or vests to match with the purple or secondary color in the color scheme. Flower girls and page boys can be attired in the same way.
It is also possible to combine purple with other colors like green, pale pink, pale yellow, silver and gold to create a unique purple wedding. But it is best not to use more than two colors while planning a wedding in order to avoid creating an overwhelming effect.
Purple Wedding Invitations

The wedding invitations for a purple wedding should match with the chosen color scheme like purple and white or purple with lavender accents. When designing invites and other cards, it is important to create a tasteful and simple invite with a touch of elegance. White cards with purple accents and motifs, and silver inscriptions would be perfect for a purple wedding.
If you have a different color combination in your wedding plan like purple and gold for instance, purple cards with pale gold motifs and lettering would make luxuriously royal looking invites. If you are planning a purple wedding on a budget, it is possible to purchase readymade invitations and other paraphernalia online at stores like Zazzle.
Alternatively, you can also make your own invitations if your invitees are few in number. Bear in mind that thank you notes, place cards and menus should also feature the same color scheme and motifs as the invites.
Decorations For A Purple Wedding

What wedding would be complete without that festive atmosphere created by festoons of flowers, lace and streamers? To give your purple wedding a celebratory feel, use fake or natural flowers that go with the selected color scheme, satin ribbons, lace and ferns to decorate the arch and along the aisle.
Matching confetti-filled balloons and streamers would also be useful in decorating the wedding and reception venues. You can also decorate the walls of the venue with a few selected wreaths or bouquets. In the dining area, chairs can be decorated with slipcovers in the secondary (complementary) color and the tables can be covered with a purple table cloth with a small flowery centerpiece and the place cards. You can also use tableware that matches with the color scheme.
