Wedding Styling .... The Colour Purple!

I'm quite excited about today's styling ideas I'm sharing with you. I have something to admit ... growing up I hated the colour purple! It was my sister's favourite colour .. she was obsessed with the colour, everything she owned had to be purple ... and so, of course I hated it!
I have, however, had a change of heart. Since styling my lovely sister's wedding and making her stationery I have become slightly obsessed myelf with the colour! Its not something I would ever really wear a lot of clothing wise but I now adore it in interiors and especially weddings!
Here's an example of some bespoke stationery I did using purple last year ....

The great thing about purple is it comes in so many different shades and variations, which can be used to style your wedding in so many different ways.
I personally love deep purples and plums, which can go really well with deep pink colours to create a vibrant glamourous effect. These colours work brilliantly with other deep jewel colours, vintage jewellery and look stunning as well with peacock feathers. Here's a few styling ideas using these deep purple colours.
