Purple Wedding Color Palette

I'm somewhat mesmeried by the color purple. It's one of those colors that's mysterious yet the more you get to know the color, the more elegant it becomes. Whether you choose to have a monochromatic palette of purple or a combination of colors, purple will speak to you as if it is saying "c'mon, do you dare try me?" Here, I've put together a few of my favorite purple themed wedding items:

Amethyst & Diamond Ring - gorgeous rock via Max & Chloe. Be sure to see the matching earring set!

- love the look of these gum paste flowers!

Bridesmaid dress via - the taffeta fabric is so luxurious! I think this can also make a beautiful substitute for a wedding gown, if you don't plan on having any bridesmaids. Think unconventional here!

Remember that purple comes in varying shades from lavender to aubergine, so consider how to match these colors by deciding on what shade you want to use. For instance, do you want the look dramatic with a dark shade or one that is light and elegant with lilac. And then find matching hues to coordinate with these colors.
