Purple wedding flowers can be a part of a traditional as well as a beach wedding. Here is more about the flower arrangements and bouquets.
Wedding is indeed a special day in a couple's life. A lot of planning and exactitude goes into making this memorable day all the more special. Amongst all the flurry of preparations, one thing that needs a special attention is the decoration. Wedding decorations are incomplete without flowers
They are the most essential part of any decoration and when it is the best day of your life, their importance gets highlighted even more. Every couple wants their wedding to be unique and totally extraordinary and the best way to achieve that is to use purple wedding flowers.

Flower Arrangements

Selecting the wedding theme is totally a personal decision. If you adore the regal purple color, which is the symbol of excellency, mystic, prosperity and happiness, then you must also know that it is one of the best and rarest colors to be used for wedding decorations.
Once you decide to use purple flowers, then it becomes equally important to match all the other decorations accordingly. Along with the bridal bouquet and the boutonnière of the groom, make sure that all the other essential decorations like the wedding pew, drapes, wedding table, favors, etc., suit the theme.
It doesn't mean that you need to spread purple everywhere, but try to combine various shades of purple with a few soft yet contrasting colors to emphasize your purple wedding.
As mentioned earlier, once you decide that purple is your theme color, make sure you use it in abundance. But at the same time, make sure that it doesn't look tacky and overwhelming. As part of your theme, you can use edible purple flowers so that the food is not left out of the theme.
Wedding pews, bridal bouquets, boutonnière, centerpieces, cakes, head wreaths and all other essential wedding décor items, must have some shade of purple.
You can also opt for a lavender wedding cake and purple silk wedding centerpieces. There is a sort of boldness about purple flowers that gets emphasized with orange and deep red colors.
Combining these flowers is a key that you need to concentrate on. Always remember that all the hues of maroon and green can be used as complementary colors for the purple flowers. Shades of yellow and white can always be used as contrasting colors. You can use these flowers in tandem with brown colors, if you are looking for the best fall wedding flowers.


Gone are the days when white and such other formal colors were the signature colors of wedding bouquets. Traditional bridal flowers with silk ribbons and pearl strings are now collaborated with non-traditional flowers.
Such combinations look elegant as well as stunning, which makes the bride all the more attractive and special. Most brides-to-be opt for a combination of purple and other bright colors like white and lime green. Along with dark purple, lilac and lavender flowers are equally popular.
As a matter of fact, flowers like violet, lavender, puce, lilac, plum, thistle, mauve, orchid, magenta, amethyst, pomegranate, wine, mulberry, and eggplant, etc., can be included in your list for bouquets.
