the color purple!

13th April, 2012 - Posted by Lia - No Comments

Purple. Lavender. Lilac. Plum. Royal purple. You name it, purple is it; the color of choice for weddings in 2012.

Purple is nice. It comes in oh, so many shades and hues and can be tastefully combined with any of the following (depending on which shade of purple you use):

  1. White
  2. Gold or silver
  3. Gray
  4. Yellow
  5. Green
  6. Black
  7. Khaki or beige

Using purple in your wedding’s color scheme doesn’t require your wedding party and décor to resemble a Barney convention, though. There are several ways to incorporate purple into your wedding without going overboard.

  1. Purple flowers (roses, orchids, lilacs, carnations, hyacinths, violets and iris) to compliment your white gown and the pale yellow, soft sherbet green or shimmery gray dresses worn by the bridal party.
  2. Dresses of soft lavender with bouquets of fragrant lilacs look stunning alongside men in black tuxes.
  3. Arrangements of varied shades of purple filling the church (or other venue) amid white tulle and lots of silver or gold shimmer.

Using these same guidelines other popular colors seen in within the industry’s trade shows include:

  1. Robin’s egg blue and softer pastel blue. Did I hear someone say 1978?
  2. Sea foam green with soft pink or khaki.
  3. Shades of brown with pink, ivory, goldenrod or black.
  4. Classic black. It will always be in style.
  5. Rich autumn colors; deep reds, gold, orange and yellow. With September and October being the most popular months of the year to get married, it’s easy to see why these colors are so sought after.
  6. Princess pinks. Every bride is a princess for a day. Some just want to live out the whole fairy-tale dream.

But be careful. Don’t become a slave to trends and fads. Remember side pony tails? Are you guilty of trying to rock leather pants?

If you’re favorite color is red, use red. If you love soft pastels, fill room with soft pastels. Use what you love. After all, it is your wedding.
