Purple Wedding Theme Ideas

Get ready to swoon over this royal and romantic wedding theme. No matter the season, no matter the venue, a purple wedding theme is timeless and versatile. Go with plum and mauve for a winter or fall wedding; use blush and lavender for a spring or summer wedding. Or, use them all together like in today’s purple inspiration board!

We especially love how the lavender plays a double role in this theme: flower and color. Fabric colors, flower arrangements and decor, and drinks and desserts—lavender can be infused everywhere for an irresistible purple wedding theme. There is something so organic about these colors in a wedding.

This purple wedding invitation perfectly matches a rustic, purple wedding theme. With so many colors and fonts to choose from, you can pick a favorite invitation design and customize it to fit your style and colors.

Let’s look at how purple details transform this theme into something special:

Bridesmaids
For a unique look, dress your bridesmaids with different colored gowns in the same style. Find a designer that offers a variety of hues in your color scheme. These lightweight bridesmaid dresses by Jenny Yoo are romantic and can be worn 15 different ways.

Lavender Cocktails
Use lavender to make special cocktails that gives them a subtle hint of lavender, as well as a wonderful aroma. Add any flower from your theme to Champagne and instantly turn them into stylish drinks.

Bouquet
For a rustic theme, wedding bouquets look best with loose arrangements filled with different textures. Use lush pionese, roses or garden roses, then add in texture with sprigs of Lavender, Scabiosa, Larkspur and Misty Blue.

Tablescape
Make your reception table eye-catching with rustic table runners arranged with flowers and candles. For a dramatic look, place pillar candles in a variety of heights down the center of your tables. Choose a pop color for your candles and then fill in the space with beautiful flowers and votives.

Velvet Chair
Living room furniture doesn’t need to stay indoors. Bring cushioned furniture outside and create a welcoming “sitting room” among the garden. It’s a great way to utilize space and it encourages guests to linger and socialize. We love this vintage, pale lilac chair—it offers so much personality to a wedding venue.

Macaroons
End the night with something sweet that guests will love. Dessert bars have proven to be very popular right now, especially in fun flavors like lavender. Set out an assortment of flavors and these purple macaroons are sure to be devoured by the end of the night—big compliments to the planner.

Lavender Jars
Spread jars of flowers around your venue to create your stylish look—a simple way to dress up your entire venue. Collect glass jars or vintage vases and fill them with lavender for a pretty look that’s an easy DIY.

Chairs
Make your sweetheart table extra sweet with purple chair decor. During the reception, you (the newlyweds) deserve something extra stylish. Drape purple tulle fabric on the chairs and add signs or flowers to showcase the “stars of the show”.

If you’re looking for a romantic wedding theme, make it in hues of purple. From dark shades of plum to pale hues in lavender and lilac, it doesn’t take much to make your day beautifully colorful with decor, bridesmaid dresses and desserts. Enjoy planing and styling your wedding true to the two of you!
