Royal purple, lavender, violet, orchid, plum, wisteria – there are as many names for all the shades of purple as, well, there are shades of purple. It is also a color that lends itself perfectly as either a bold main color selection for a classic, understated scheme, using simple touches of color to dramatic accents.
It also complements other shades of the spectrum, making it an excellent choice for brides with an affection for all things purple – with a groom that has other ideas in mind.
You can add more visual interest with scrolling vines, ribbons, quilting patterns, touches of silver, and complementary florals.
Or have a bit of fun with both your wedding and your theme, as this fabulous rendition of two Las Vegas Wedding Cake themes show – with lucky 7’s, feathers, and bling galore.
And when paired with white or ivory, it can serve as the perfect contrasting shade for intricate and lacy patterns that allow them to stand alone in a singular presentation. (See? No cake topper necessary!)
But as you can clearly see from the images gathered here – virtually every bride, no matter her theme, style, or color scheme – can make the most impressive use of her favorite shades of purple in making her wedding statement.
