Popular colors combinations for weddings include purple and blue, bright purple with orange, purple paired with chartreuse and lilac and brown. Use different shades of purple to create interesting color depth for your wedding. Read on for more purple wedding inspiration.


Vineyard Inspired

Walk down the aisle at your elegant vineyard wedding, perhaps the ultimate in purple weddings. Vineyards and wineries offer beautiful backdrops for your ceremony and wedding photography in an outdoor setting replete with grape vines and rustic charm. Add touches of purple to your wedding flowers with burgundy roses, maroon daisies and claret Calla lilies.

At your vineyard reception, serve red wines made from local grapes such as cabernets, merlots, Pinot Noir or zinfandel. For parting guest favors, give them bottles of wine featuring custom wine labels commemorating your wedding day.

Lavender Love

Say “I do” to a lavender wedding, choose a venue such as beautiful botanical gardens or lavender farm or elegant venue decorated in lavender hues. When planning a lavender wedding, check your calendars, lavender blooms from late spring through early summer.

Lace and lavender make a great combination for bridal gowns or bridesmaids dresses. Provide the groom and groomsmen with sprigs of lavender to wear in their lapels.

Decorate your reception tables with bouquets of lavender; the pleasant fragrance will be unforgettable. For wedding favors, offer lavender sachets or decorative guest soaps.

Truly Deeply Mauve

Marry your true love in a mauve wedding, a lighter purple color featuring grayish undertones. Augment your wedding ceremony with mauve colored flowers such as peonies, phlox or wisteria. Enhance your reception tables with mauve tablecloths and floral centerpieces.

Bring touches of mauve to your wedding attire with mauve shoes, nail polish or bridal clutch. Great colors to pair with mauve include taupe, champagne and dark purple

Boho Purple

Show your free-spirited side with a purple bohemian-style wedding. Boho consists of many influences and incorporates elements from nature or vintage and eclectic inspired components. Choose a purple color such as a vibrant electric purple or deep purple haze.

Expand the boho-feel for your wedding by combining purple with blue, turquoise or gold. Select bohemian prints featuring purple for your reception tablecloths. For wedding attire, adorn your tresses with a floral crown or head wreath composed of purple flowers such as sweet peas, hydrangeas or lilacs.

Purple boho wedding favors ideas include handcrafted purple dream catchers, packets of organic lavender seeds or mason jars filled with homemade plum jam.
