Rumor has it that purple is a popular color for weddings this year. Purple on its own is not nearly as striking as when paired with other colors creating many different moods. Purple is versatile and comes in a wide range of intensities from dark, almost black to light, frosty and cool. It can be rich and juicy or antique and dusty. To make a bold statement use the color wheel opposites which are yellow, green and orange for a bright summer bouquet. For a monochromatic look move to the right or left of purple on the wheel into rich magenta and violet blues.
Purple is a memory of rich autumn fragrances, harvest, crisp air and rusty leaves floating from trees. Picture a rich plum with chocolate brown, bronze, orange, cream and green! What a rich and unusual pallet for a wedding.
For Winter a cool icy lavender and white bouquet would unexpected and brisk. Green and purple or lavender with white are a clean and fresh combination for spring.
Whatever the season, purple can be a wonderful addition to your color pallet for both a wedding or for your home decor. Picture you relaxing on a white chaise lounge against a rich, purple backdrop in your bedroom. Lovely!
