While color trends come and go purple is a color that has staying power. This color has been a common staple from the beginning and the shade of ultra violet is a bold choice that is sure to leave an impression on your guests. Although ultra violet is a color that can make a big impact, it can be challenging to find a way to include the color in your wedding theme in a subtle way . Here are just a few ideas on how to incorporate this color into your big day.
Purple Floral Design: This bouquet from Belles Fleurs is an excellent example on mixing modern colors with timeless elements to create a stunning arrangement. The mix of amnesia roses, silver carpet lambs ear, and white daisy's are an unlikely pairing that blend beautifully in this September brides elegant and modern infused dream bouquet. This proves that taking risks in classic areas allows for more memorable and on trend looks in 2018.
Purple Engagement Rings: In the past few years non-traditional engagement rings have taken center stage. From Prince William and Kate Middleton's royal engagement 2010 with the use of a blue sapphire color gemstones have become common place. By forgoing a diamond all together this can help save on the cost of a standard gold and diamond engagement ring. This unique touch will allow your engagement ring to make a statement while expressing your individual taste or symbolic meaning. The color purple has been associated with royalty, devotion,peace and magic. These are all wonderful descriptions of how powerful the love you share with your significant other is. What better way to express your special bond than with a stunning sapphire, amethyst or tanzinate gemstone.
Purple Attire: We love the use of these ultraviolet bridesmaid dresses mixed with the slate grey suites the grooms party wore. Grey compliments purple very well to make for a neutral backdrop allowing the purple to pop. The sweetheart neckline and flowing bodice of these light and airy bridesmaid dresses go with the color scheme perfectly without drawing attention away from the brides stunning ivory ballgown with crystal embellishments. The men's attire pairs a classic grey suit that can be a staple ensemble with a lavender tie that matches the bridesmaids but allows for the men to have their own style moment. All in all this is a perfect example of using a bold color in a subtle way.
Purple Linens: Some areas of injecting touches of purple such as jewelry or floral are much easier to include than others such a decor and linens. For a toned down touch that is not too flashy try incorporating a soft lavender napkin with a steel blue table cloth like in this stunning tables-cape that was designed by owner CJ Dickson of CJ's off the square in Franklin Tn. The touches of silver mercury glass votive's, greenery and an unusual pairing of violet and steel blue make for an elegant and understated pallet to pair the more bright hue of ultraviolet floral decor.
