How do brides look for shades for their wedding? Someone chooses their favorite colors, someone is based on the design of the site, and someone opens articles about the latest trends and looks for the most fashionable tone – this year it was a rich purple. The color is deep, mystical, extraordinary and … very complex. It is not an easy task to come up with what shades to combine it with, so that a wedding in purple looks not only fashionable, but also noble. But we solved it and selected 7 wonderful color schemes for you.
Basic rules for a purple wedding
A few words about the materials with which the color of the year is combined – wood, marble and metal. You can, for example, not cover a textured wooden table with a tablecloth, but place the dishes directly on it, placing purple napkins next to it.
When in doubt about not overdoing purple, use it only as accents. Suitable examples: the bride’s shoes, single flowers in arrangements, chair upholstery, banquet plates, or even purple lighting. Those who are confident in themselves may not be shy – large purple “spots” at a wedding can look luxurious, for example, a newlywed presidium with a background behind or a photo zone.
Purple and turquoise
Bright turquoise will dilute the wedding in purple and make it fresh. Don’t forget: the more intense it is, the less it should be on the court. The fact is that such colors attract attention and if there is too much turquoise, the holiday will look lurid. Better to choose purple and turquoise accents, and keep the main shade neutral. You can also “shade” with these colors the main material of the wedding, for example, wood.
Shades of purple
There should be a lot of your favorite color! If you want a purple wedding without adding other tones, you can make it stylish too. Collect a palette of 4-5 shades of the same color, from light to dark. It’s easier not to make a mistake if they are of the same warmth – all cold (with a blue undertone, as if dusty) or warm (with a red undertone).
Purple and pink
Juicy and bright color combination similar to candy:
Purple and blue
Our favorite combination because of how noble it looks. Feel free to make blue the main color of the celebration and add purple accents. The dusty shades of these colors look more harmonious together.
Purple, orange and yellow
This is a combination for energetic and fun couples. Orange and yellow contrast with violet, emphasizing its brightness and saturation.
Purple and beige
A purple wedding can look extremely elegant with a calm beige as the main color. It will muffle the purple without overshadowing it. Watch for the same warmth of both shades – they should be cold or warm. In a situation where one is cold and the other warm, their combination will be inharmonious.
Purple and green
This combination is ideal for summer, as it resembles a green flower bed. The fresh union of two colors will tell about a breath of light breeze and create a feeling of coolness. Choose muted shades if you want them to be pleasing to the eye together.
