How to Add Purple to your Wedding Decor

Because purple is such a rich colour, it can be overpowering as an accent to your wedding decor. Instead of drenching all your decorations in different hues of purple, try picking a few complimentary shades you love, and using them as subtle hints to your wedding decor.

Ways you can add touches of purple include a few purple flowers or feathers in your bouquet, simple bridal jewelry with a few purple stones, or creating an ombre aisle using purple rose petals.

You might also consider adding sprigs of lavender to your cocktails or champagne, or an amazing ruffled purple wedding cake!

We love the idea of creating a purple cocktail as a signature drink for your guests! You can find the recipe for purple lemonade here

Purple Wedding Ideas: Budget Ways to Add Purple

If you’re on a tight budget, and want a few easy ways to include purple in your wedding, there are a few budget-friendly ideas that might help!

Using overturned wine glasses as centre pieces with purple candles & flowers
We love how easy upside-down wine glasses are as a centre piece or to decorate cocktail tables. Place a candle on the bottom of the wine glass, and fill the glass with purple flowers!

Make a DIY Purple Paper garland
You could also find lovely purple paper and made your own garland of purple flowers as a backdrop, or instead of bunting hanging over your guests tables.

Spray baby’s breath Purple
Baby’s breath is a cost-effective choice for your wedding flowers. And it also makes a beautiful filler for bunches on tables. Instead of spending on purple roses, or searching for purple tinted versions - why not find a shade of purple spray paint you love and DIY your own purple flowers!

Use Paper Lanterns
Paper lanterns are an inexpensive alternative to hiring chandeliers or other costly light fittings. Using lots of purple lanterns above tables or hanging in tress creates amazing atmosphere, and the glowing purple colours look amazing in photos!
