While weddings done in shades of blue have had the wedding market on lock for two years in a row, purple nuptials – and all the hues they entail – are a close second. And it’s no wonder why!
Pretty purples, vivid violets, lovely lavenders and impeccable indigoes all hold the key to the world’s most globally recognized look for all things regal. Dating all the way back to Medieval times, purple dyes were considered a rare and expensive look for only the most worthy aristocrats throughout Europe and even became the official color for Roman emperors and their entourages – ooh la la, a color fit for a queen! Appropriate because, who could quite possibly be more queen-like than a bride in love! Umm, nothing – duh!
Often associated with nobility and royalty, purple shades have come to embody wisdom, enlightenment and spirituality by combining the stability of blue with the energy of red. They create a clear sense of luxury and sophistication with hints of femininity and romance… all in all, an ideal tone for a wedding day celebration, don’t ya think?! Look below to see what I mean :)
