– Flowers could include pure white flowers of any sort, larkspur, delphiniums, Queen Anne’s lace, sea holly, limonium, violets, dark red leaves, grey succulents, pansies, irises, dark purple lilies, lilacs, hydrangeas

– A champagne coloured wedding dress caught at the waist with an intricate amethyst and wine coloured crystal brooch, bouquets of purple, caramel. champagne and green orchids, pick up the green in the maids dresses with purple shoes for all, black suits for the men

– Magnolia tablecloths, purple napkins, champagne coloured plates, purple wine glasses, twigs, shells purple interiors, pearly finishes on dishes, cutlery handles,

– Hanging from the ceiling above each table, a flower arrangement incorporating the flowers used in your bouquets, on the tables purple candles of different hues, tiny purple and green boutonniere sized arrangements around each napkin

– Lots of glass to add light and sparkle – in plates, glasses, vases, candelabras, chandeliers, crystal drops looped amongst flowers, around lights, amongst the table decorations, mirrored tabletops

– Lanterns hung in groups – metal, paper, glass, hung amongst the spring blossoms of a wisteria covered pergola, or on the branches of a jacaranda tree

– Groups of paper flowers either in pure white, or in your bouquet colours. Hung from the ceiling, surrounding an archway, at each place setting, or even as your bouquet.

– And last but definitely not least – base your wedding theme on violets or pansies – tiny vases of them everywhere you can cram them, tucked into your bouquet, as fresh fragrant favours for your female guests, sugared violets on your cake, cupcakes or decorating your dessert

    I’m thinking I like it paired with other colours, especially bold ones like Orange, Lime Green or Pink (but then pink goes with everything….)LOL

    Gorgeous. A cluster of dark purple lilies, lilacs, and hydrangeas would be striking. Purple is stunning against crisp white … it’s the perfect combination for a chic wedding.
