Have you heard? Ombre is pretty hot this wedding season! We featured a red ombre wedding inspiration board a few weeks ago, and this week I just couldn’t help myself! I had to create a purple one. Oh, how we do love purple around here! It’s also a very popular color according to wedding planners, and from what I can tell in many featured weddings. Purple is one of those colors that works well as a neutral, thus a lot of colors can coordinate with and accent it. Pink, green, blue, orange, yellow, navy and yes, even red, all work and play well with purple. All the shades of purple, no matter how saturated, from the deepest to the lightest, also invoke a certain calm and peacefulness. So ideal for a wedding!
This beautiful shade of purple in the bridesmaid’s dress is what started the inspiration today, and you can see how a small amount of buttery yellow in the gorgeous bouquet plays well with lavender as the background. The oh-so-pretty lilacs in the vintage table setting makes for a beautiful greeting for your guests as does the lavender lemonade. Does anyone know what lavender lemonade even tastes like? Does it have an earthy, herby taste or is the lavender stem only for show and pretty factor? Do tell, anyone that knows! Little homemade lavender sachets are the perfect touch for our purple inspiration. And as far as I’m concerned having an ombre wedding cake, especially in purple, just takes the cake – ha! Lastly, no wedding is complete without a little touch of sparkle. Whether a bit of bling on your finger, on your wedding dress sash or better yet, your pretty shoes, sparkle is a must!
