Wedding Color Ideas With Purple

Purple is a versatile wedding colour with many popular hues suitable for winter, summer, fall or spring weddings. Consider the season you will marry when selecting shades of purple and coordinating other colours with it. Its wide range provides options for delicate spring or sophisticated winter colour schemes: periwinkle, lavender, orchid, heliotrope, plum, mulberry, magenta, violet, indigo. Select a main shade of purple and other complementary hues for attendants' flowers and for accents at your ceremony and reception sites.


Choose bright summer colours including grass green, lime or hot pink to accent purple. Since these colours are bright and dominating, consider them a minor accent for a decor dominated by purple. For example, lime green ribbons cascading from bouquets of purple hydrangeas or hot pink flower petals dotting a deep purple aisle runner add bright touches that aren't overwhelming. For equal parts purple and another colour, choose pastel green, ivory or pale pink.


Celebrate the fresh hues of the season by pairing rich reds with purple. Imagine vibrant red tulips nestled into deep purple vases as centrepieces. Sparkling red garnet earrings on bridesmaids in dazzling eggplant-coloured gowns look chic. The lemon-yellow hue of spring-fresh daffodils also pairs well with purple. Tuck tiny yellow daisies into a bouquet of flowers in shades of purple.


Blend deep, rich shades of purple with burnt orange, russet and burgundy for a stunning fall colour palette. The deep, royal colours create a warm, cosy feel at a candlelit reception on a chilly fall evening. Consider having bridesmaids wear faux fur wraps in a dark hue. Bridesmaid bouquets will look lovely with purple, russet and burgundy flowers.


If your winter wedding will have a purple theme, celebrate the sparkle of the season by choosing silver, gold, iridescent white or white as an accent colour. It's a perfect time to choose metallic colours and accessories that sparkle. Silver ribbon enhances bouquets of plum-coloured roses, while metallic confetti reflects candlelight on the reception tables. Imagine bridesmaids in purple tea-length dresses with gold sashes and matching gold shoes.

All Purple

If purple is your favourite colour and you can't imagine any other colours sharing your wedding day, use varying hues of purple and avoid the "matchy-matchy" look, according to the The Knot website. Pair delicate lavender with a vibrant plum hue or pale periwinkle with deep royal purple. Consider a bouquet of several shades of purple from bluish-purple hydrangeas to variegated violets. The mixture of shades satisfies the demand for purple, without making the scene monotone.
