Blue and purple make an elegant colour combination throughout the year - the depth of the shades determining the final look. Pale blue and soft purple lean towards a spring or summer wedding, and midnight blue and regal purple lend themselves perfectly to a winter celebration. We hope these blue and purple wedding ideas will inspire and delight…
The Paler Shades
Powder blue with a delicate shade of purple (perhaps more of a lilac hue) creates a cool, romantic vibe on a summer wedding day.

These tones are perfectly suited to a beach wedding, particularly when the blue co-ordinates so well with the sea and the sky!

There are an abudance of flowers to choose from for a blue and purple wedding theme, and they combine together wonderfully with shades of white, ivory and green.

Royal Blue and Mid-Purple
Adding a little depth to both colours results in a vibrant colour scheme of royal blue and rich purple – shades that lend themselves wonderfully to weddings all through the year. Bring the colours together in your flowers but don’t worry too much about combining them elsewhere. Blue bridesmaid dresses, for example, look striking with purple bouquets – there’s no need to find dresses in purple and blue.

Adopting a ‘Tiffany blue’ shade with purple works well, particularly when using the deeper shades for the base tiers.

Evening Jewel Tones
For an elegant evening wedding, jewel tones are spectacular, particularly in autumn and winter months when you can set the scene with candlelight. Bridesmaids and ushers can dress in deep midnight blue, with purple accessories such as posies, buttonholes, ties and shoes. A muted shade of gold completes the look as a background colour for favour boxes and the wedding cake.

Set for an evening wedding breakfast, midnight blue and purple are given a truly regal slant with the addition of gold chairs. This bold colour scheme works well as the décor is kept to a minimum, allowing the magnificent floral centerpieces to speak for themselves!

When it comes to flowers, sometimes a hint of colour is all you need. This delicate posy of cream roses is the perfect backdrop for a scattering of stunning blue and purple orchids.

Make sure your invitations give a hint as to your chosen colour scheme. We love this design for a more rustic wedding.

And finally, the cake. An elegant stacked cake, iced in white, is a suitably grand base for this cascade of blooms, set off with purple ribbon and a bit of sparkle.
