Purple and Blue Wedding Theme Ideas

Rich purples and blues make a romantic wedding theme that will make your and your guests’ hearts sing. Besides the beautiful colors, we love all the textures in this purple and blue wedding theme. Sequence, crystal beads, lace and frills—it’s all too beautiful not to fall in love with.

Psst. Here are the ingredients for this wining theme: plum, orchid, lavender, heather, muted teal and seafoam.

This invitation shows off flowers in a romantic watercolor style that guests can cherish as a special keepsake. Send your favorite design and get your guests excited to see your style come to life.

For a unique bridal-party look, pick out mix-match dresses in bright purple, plum and lavender with different textures like lace and frills. You’ll be pleased with how all your colors and your bridesmaids will love putting on their own special dress.

Pin on your purple and blue wedding theme. Colorful flowers make beautiful boutonnieres that accent your partner, groomsmen and family members. Use greenery, lavender or neutral plants (like wheat) for your floral filler, and then add colorful flowers in purples and plums.

Tip: For fresh looking flowers all day, choose florals that aren’t too delicate and that can hold up to the whole day.

Glitz and glam always looks great on the bride. Don’t be shy—wear those vibrant, sequence shoes that you love on your wedding day. They will look lovely in photos and will give you a pop of color.

Lavender Lemonade
Infuse your drinks with flavor and color that match your theme, and style and taste your guests will love. Lilac lavender infused lemonade makes the perfect refreshment as a non-alcoholic lemonade, or for a cocktail version, add vodka.

Enhance your indoor or outdoor ambiance and set the mood with light and style. Hang chandeliers with draping crystals in purple for something stylish and elegant. Bistro lights, candles and up-lighting are other ways to keep your venue romantically lit throughout the night.

Keep your guests content throughout the night with a dessert bar. Set up a table at your reception where guests can grab a slice of cake or an assortment of finger desserts, like these rose macarons. The dessert bar is a trend that gets everyone up to mingle and ready to dance…right after grabbing a macaron.

Teal Door
Before your wedding day, think about where the good spots are to take your wedding photos. Stone walls, hallways and large doors make beautiful dramatic photo ops. Create more backdrops by painting furniture and doors in your colors.

Give your wedding cake a special up-do with layers upon layers of lavender ombré frosting. Use your purple and blue wedding theme for inspiration. To make your cake a stunning centerpiece, add wedding flowers around or on the cake.

If you’re looking for a romantic theme that uses vibrant colors, then a purple and blue wedding theme is just your style. Add your personal touch with purple and blue florals, dresses with textured lace, and layers of frosted frills on your cake.

Find decor and details to dress up your venue and enjoy making your wedding day everything you want it to be!

Mint Green Wedding Ideas with Gold

Looking for a fresh wedding theme? Today we’re showing off mint and metallic, a winning combination that’s light and airy.

It’s a “feel-good” theme that creates a perfect environment for a spring or summer wedding. Use soft mint hues to create a beautiful backdrop for shiny gold and rose gold accents. All your details—shoes, cocktails, florals and tablescapes—are perfect elements to customize so that your dream of a romantic wedding day comes true.

We love this elegant green wedding invitation, designed with hues of mint and real metallic gold foil. Give guests a peek into your big day with this stylish design.

After you choose your color theme and your invites, go ahead and have fun styling your day with all the pretty details. Here’s how with a mint and metallic theme:

Treat your guests to a signature after-dinner drink, like mint-flavored cocktails rimed with gold sugar. Look to your wedding theme for inspiration to create unique mixed drinks. Use flavors that match your colors—lime margaritas for a green cocktail or sparkling rosé cocktails for a rose-gold drink.

Don’t be afraid to pull out those mint linens to show off your colors. Accent your tablecloths with gold flatware and plate chargers. Add gold Chiavari chairs for a final touch, and for extra color, use cushions in a mint hue.

Candy Jar
Set a beautiful dessert bar with vintage, mix-match candy jars and fill them with colorful candy, like mint-colored Jordan almonds. Don’t settle for typical colors and flavors that don’t fit your theme. Ask bakers and candy companies for color options—they usually have more choices than what’s advertised.

There are no rules when it comes to styling your bridal look. Mint-colored wedding shoes with gold accents are perfect for this theme. Tell your photographer ahead of time that you want to capture interesting shots of your dress and those special mint-colored shoes.

Some of the most interesting staged photos are of the bride’s dress. Find antique chairs, armoires, vintage upholstered footstools or doors and paint them in mint green. Then, distress the furniture to give them a rustic look. Now you have a dramatic backdrop for your dress and bridal party photo shoot.

Create beautiful green arrangements with pops of colorful flowers—Waxflower and Misty Blue—and add our favorite mint-colored greenery, Dusty Miller, for a soft, velvety look. Or, looking for something monochromatic? Use foliage like Eucalyptus, ivies, ferns, Generic Hosta and green flowers, like Chrysanthemums and Wimbleton Roses, to create an all-over green look.

When choosing all your details: linens, cocktails, furniture, desserts and your wedding attire, go above and beyond to find them in your mint and metallic theme. When your big day comes filled with your beautiful style, you’ll know all your attention to detail was worth it.

Have fun finding your own unique ways to dress up your green wedding, with some sparkle and shine!

A Golden New Years Eve Wedding

The countdown has officially begun!

We are only a few days away from the New Year, and we wanted to show off a seriously stunning NYE wedding. If you need some fun inspiration ideas for your own big day, take some notes on how perfectly Ashley & Dean decorated their ceremony and wedding reception. They brought in the New Year with a glorious bang! Streamers, confetti, and party hats- what more could you need?

This beautiful, award-winning New York venue is historic and so very chic.  With its 40-foot ceilings and glistening chandeliers, the ballroom alone is breathtaking. If you are wondering what New Years Eve decorations to get, take a look at the array of party accessories that Dean and Ashley had for their wedding guests.

How do you like to reign in the New Year?

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:

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

A Blue Wedding in New Mexico

Today, we are sharing a darling wedding to honor Jacquelyn and Peter!

This charming wedding took place in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico. Their stunning religious ceremony was later followed by a relaxing outdoor reception at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya. Located in the Sandia Mountains, this Resort & Spa captures the real beauty of the Southwest.

We love the amazing pops of blue throughout their entire wedding theme; and those creamy white floral bouquets are so stunning, they almost take our breath away! Jacquelyn and Peter picked fun wedding colors, and we are smitten with their attention to detail- from Jacquelyn’s jewelry to their blue and gold wedding cake. This blue wedding works beautifully for any season!

Pink and Gold Wedding in a Historic Venue

Today, we are sharing a totally unique wedding experience!

Todd and Lindsay held their wedding at the spectacular Aria event space, in Minneapolis. These two wanted a bold, colorful wedding to help them start off their new journey together. From the Aria’s elegant open brick rooms, to their stunning crystal chandeliers, this venue always welcomes a great party. This historic venue is the perfect blend of cozy meets mysterious.

To add to the already elegant venue, the bridal party is decked out in soft, creamy pink bridesmaid dresses and white and blush colored peony bouquets. The groomsmen look dapper in their formal tuxedos, and snowy white boutonnieres. And their flower girls- could they be any more adorable?

If you are looking for a pink wedding with some metallic golden pops, Lindsay and Todd’s reception decor is going to make you fall head over heels.
