You’ll love this selection of purple wedding decorations, from beautiful flowers to elegant décor, prepare to be inspired!

Purple is undoubtedly one of our favourite wedding colours. Deep shades are fabulous in the winter, combining beautifully with metallics as well as natural greens. During summer months, choose softer shades and pair with white, ivory or silver. Let’s take a look at some inspirational purple wedding ideas.

All About Décor

When it comes to your reception venue, set the scene with purple wedding decorations, from purple linen to elegant details. Be aware that this is a relatively bold colour so need only be used sparingly.

For a winter celebration, deep purple linen looks dramatic with gold chairs.
