As Pantone’s colour of the year is revealed to be Ultra Violet, we showcase how to go ultra unforgettable with our favourite details in purple perfection…
Fit for a royal wedding (and wouldn’t you just know it, there’s one right around the corner…), we take inspiration from Pantone’s colour of the year to accent a glorious wedding day in this most monarchical of colours. Exploring the quirkier details of a big-day bonanza, we love how these little additions and final flourishes are just the ticket for creating a purple perfection theme…
Ridiculously regal, we have serious ring-envy gazing at this little beauty. And let’s be honest, it’s hardly little…
We love Real Bride Samantha’s purple-pop here with personalised M&Ms in lilac and lime (a top colour combo for contrast). See her stunning Summer wedding in full here.
To keep the purple palette running throughout and to help lift the table decor, consider these decadent chocolate bars from Raw Halo as tempting favours. The spectrum of purples from plum to mauve will give you inspiration for an array of accent options elsewhere too.
Wholly befitting of the sense of big-day drama, the colour purple adds instant sit-up-and-take-note wow factor. When used as shown here, as a simple backdrop in draped fabric, the effect is immediate and striking. What an aisle this makes!
Block-purple is certainly a statement look and can be overwhelming. Keep your look more subtle with sprigs of lavender to mark place settings or the table plan for a laid-back, rustic-chic effect.
If we’re talking details, don’t forget your nails! Hands down the perfect finishing touch, we love this lighter shade of purple in Mulberry.
A softer, more romantic and whimsical look here, this two-tiered floral cake dazzles in purple and gold (another great colour combo).
And don’t forget the guys… in a flock and paisley design set against a silver background, we love this groom’s elegant purple tie – perfect co-ordination material for the ladies!
