Today in the “Flowers by Color” series we are taking a look at purple wedding flowers. The color of royalty and the favorite color of many engaged couples, purple wedding flowers are cropping up everywhere this wedding season. We have you covered if you are looking for purple flowers for a wedding, whether you are eyeing a soft lavender color, or looking for a deep purple!
- Purple Peruvian Lilies – Purple Peruvian Lilies are a beautiful medium purple, as shown paired with bi-colored calla lilies and white roses in this bouquet. They bring a touch of an exotic element to floral arrangements, and would make a stunning addition to flowers in contrasting colors, such as orange.
- Purple Anemones – Anemones are so delicate that they almost look like they are made of tissue. Available in light and deep purple colors, such as this elegant Purple Passion Flower Bouquet, they inspire a dramatic bridal entrance. Because they are a larger flower, you can get more of an impact for less money because just a handful of blooms produce a lush bouquet. They also make for a unique and unexpected boutonniere
- Tulips – Tulips come in a variety of colors, including light and deep purples. They look positively breathtaking and classy when bunched together in a monochromatic arrangement and housed in a silver vase, or when paired together as in this Painted Skies tulip flower bouquet.
Some popular color pairings with purple wedding flowers are orange, yellow, black, red and gray. Remember that color pairing is everything when going for a specific theme. For example, a purple wedding flower paired with peach flowers and topped off with burlap can create a gorgeous, rustic feel. A deep purple, paired with red and black can create a vintage feel. With so much impact, it is no wonder that flowers make up such a large part of wedding budgets!
