Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2022 is here, and it’s a gorgeous shade of purple, Very Peri! This cool, blue-toned periwinkle is the perfect pick for a purple wedding theme – here’s how to get the look.
One of the best things about Very Peri for bridesmaid dresses is how universally flattering the colour is! It’s cooler and more saturated than lilac (ideal if you’re worried about pastels washing out your maids), and it works well in all seasons. Pair with faux fur stoles and silver accessories for winter, and gold detailing and flower crowns for summer.
Okay, you might not want to get married in a purple wedding dress (although, to each their own!), but you can easily add Very Peri touches with your bridal accessories. Amethyst jewellery is the perfect touch for both you and your bridesmaids, and purple shoes can easily be worn after the big day has come and gone.
Luckily flowers are one of the easiest parts of a purple wedding theme! There are plenty of blooms to choose from in all seasons, including irises, lilacs, anemones, freesias, lisianthus and hydrangea. If you want your bridal bouquet to stand out, choose purple blooms for yourself and white for your bridesmaids (tied with a Very Peri ribbon, of course).
An easy way to let your guests know about your purple wedding theme upfront is with your wedding invitation. Whether you go full purple like this pretty plum style from Love Invited, or you choose a few delicate details in Very Peri (what about white invites with purple envelopes?), it’ll let your guests know what colours to avoid if they don’t want to look like part of the bridal party!
There are plenty of ways to decorate your venue and tables when it comes to a purple wedding theme. Why not try mini bundles of lavender as place settings (they make great scented favours too), delphinium petal confetti, scattered table gems and purple seat ribbons? Don’t forget that your wedding cake counts as decor too!
