Whether you describe that sacred of all colors as amethyst, eggplant, indigo, lavender, lilac, mulberry, orchid, plum, pomegranate, puce, royal, thistle, violet or wine — purple is magical. The opposites of hot red and cool blue combine to create this intriguing color.
A mysterious color, purple is associated with both nobility and spirituality. Purple is considered the color of good judgment and for those seeking spiritual fulfillment (violet represents the Crown chakra). It is said if you surround yourself with purple you will have peace of mind. And peace of mind sums it up for my most magical wedding.
I have long been a fan of purple and took great pride in combining my love of purple with shades of chartreuse and apple green for my own wedding. And if I must say, it was stunning! Had lilacs been in season, I would have opted for a bouquet of such, but it was just past peak so I used a mixture of thistle, sweet pea and delphinium.
Not only did some shade of purple make it into the details, but both bride and groom were also draped in shades of purple. The groom wore a handsome vest of purple and the bride, a most nontraditional purple and green gingham that had everyone ooohing and aaahing.
If purple strikes your fancy, dare to be bold in its use. Purple pairs nicely with not only green, but with a vast array of colors, even brown!
