Plum, Lavender, Amethyst, Oh My! Oodles of Purple Wedding Ideas

Monday, September 9, 2019

Raise your hand if you're all about one of the most popular wedding colors: purple! With so many hues of eggplant, violet, and more from which to choose, purple can transform an event with its soft elegance or bold regality, and we are always living for it. Whether you're having a rustic, vintage, or boho wedding, we love how this color can shine in every style. Florals definitely are the easiest way to bring purple into your theme, but also consider linens, attire, accessories, stationery, and rentals. There are so many chic options that we are sharing today. Curated from Etsy and beyond, shades of amethyst never looked so good!
