Purple bridal bouquet: the best combinations and tips for choosing

A pur­ple bridal bou­quet is quite unusu­al for a wed­ding, but a very inter­est­ing option. It makes the image of the bride more mys­te­ri­ous, gives an aura of mys­ti­cism. This arti­cle dis­cuss­es the best col­or com­bi­na­tions, use­ful tips for choos­ing such a bou­quet.

What does it symbolize?

Pur­ple col­or sym­bol­izes incon­sis­ten­cy and mys­tery. It can be obtained by mix­ing red and blue. These tones are oppo­site: blue is a sym­bol of peace, rea­son, red — fire and pas­sion. Pur­ple com­bines these oppo­sites, which is intrigu­ing. It is cold and fire, humil­i­ty and ener­gy, soul and body, female and male. Pur­ple wed­ding bou­quet sym­bol­izes the com­bi­na­tion of spir­i­tu­al wis­dom and sen­su­al­i­ty, mod­esty and majesty. It is a sym­bol of devo­tion and eter­nal love. Pur­ple brings a lot of respect and pas­sion to rela­tion­ships.

Which bride is suitable for?

Pur­ple plants are great for both aged women and very young women. How­ev­er, you need to choose the right shade. The own­er of blond hair is more suit­able for a pale pur­ple bou­quet, and brunettes can choose rich, dark tones. When choos­ing suit­able pur­ple plants for a wed­ding bou­quet, you should also pay atten­tion to the col­or type of the lady’s appear­ance. Such shades are very well suit­ed for “autumn” and “sum­mer” women.

The autumn col­or type has the fol­low­ing fea­tures:

  • pos­si­ble pres­ence of freck­les;
  • blue, light brown, gray­ish, green­ish eyes;
  • red strands (or with a red­dish tinge).

Sum­mer col­or type has such fea­tures as:

  • green with a gray tint, brown or light blue eyes;
  • light-col­ored skin (its tone is usu­al­ly beige);
  • ashy strands.

Inter­est­ing! Pur­ple is loved by women with cer­tain char­ac­ter traits. It is usu­al­ly cho­sen by impe­ri­ous and refined rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the fair sex, who com­bine aris­to­crat­ic restraint and sen­su­al­i­ty.

Possible combinations

For a bou­quet with pur­ple plants, it is bet­ter to choose dif­fer­ent tones. If only pur­ple is used, it usu­al­ly looks very bor­ing, besides, be aware that a large amount of this col­or can be tir­ing. To avoid this, it is worth using red, green, pink, yel­low, white col­ors in the bou­quet. It is rec­om­mend­ed to use dif­fer­ent shades of pur­ple. Dark red (cher­ry, bur­gundy) goes well with lilac, laven­der, lilac flow­ers.

As for the over­all image of the bride — her out­fit should not be com­plete­ly pur­ple. The bou­quet is usu­al­ly made a bright accent. How­ev­er, you can use oth­er pur­ple acces­sories: jew­el­ry, gloves, and so on. The rib­bon of the bou­quet should be trans­par­ent, beige, white or also pur­ple. Flow­ers of these shades can also be used to dec­o­rate the hair of a lady.

It is worth not­ing that the col­or of the dress should not be bright. Vio­let is very eas­i­ly inter­rupt­ed by oth­er sat­u­rat­ed tones. It is bet­ter to com­bine such bou­quets with tra­di­tion­al white dress­es. How­ev­er, oth­er options are pos­si­ble, but the main thing here is to cor­rect­ly guess with col­or com­bi­na­tions.

Various styles

Pur­ple col­or fits well with dif­fer­ent styles.

  • Such a bou­quet will look great at a wed­ding dec­o­rat­ed in rus­tic style. Pre­dom­i­nant­ly nat­ur­al shades are used there, and pur­ple-col­ored flow­ers will become a bright accent, they will attract inter­est­ed looks.
  • Such a bou­quet will fit well into the Provence style. It is char­ac­ter­ized by a large num­ber of pur­ple hues.
  • Sim­i­lar flow­ers will be appro­pri­ate at a wed­ding dec­o­rat­ed in a loft style. They will bring a touch of sophis­ti­ca­tion, mys­tery.

Helpful Tips

When choos­ing the most suit­able pur­ple wed­ding bou­quet, you need to con­sid­er its size. Such flow­ers them­selves are very notice­able, so you should not make the bou­quet too big. Oth­er­wise, it can become an ugly spot that does not look beau­ti­ful, but ridicu­lous. A medi­um or small pur­ple bou­quet will suf­fice.

If you are not sure whether you will be able to choose the right plants and com­bine them beau­ti­ful­ly in a bou­quet, con­tact an expe­ri­enced florist. A pro­fes­sion­al will be able to cre­ate a real work of art that will be a won­der­ful dec­o­ra­tion for your wed­ding.

One of the most com­mon options is a com­bi­na­tion of pink and pur­ple in a wed­ding bou­quet. Next to each oth­er, these col­ors look even more aes­thet­ic.
