Purple is the hot new colour trend for weddings in 2013.
With its regal undertones and deep rich colour, it makes the perfect theme for a formal big day. Team it with ivory or gold for a rich, wintry touch or bright orange and cerise for a colour pop in summer.
Purple works well with blonde and brunette hair – great news if you’re planning purple bridesmaids’ dresses.
When it comes to flowers, think tulips, hydrangea, lilac and lavender – all perfect blooms for table centres and bouquets – just choose the shade that’s right for you.
You can even work the purple wedding theme into your favours – think Parma Violets, purple Love Hearts and even the Big Purple One from Quality Street.
