Purple Wedding Flowers
Why are they so popular?
Do you want purple wedding flowers on your big day.
They are popular with many people as they signify wealth, spirituality and nobility as the color purple expresses a richness
beyond many other colors. Which is why royal families display their jewels on a bed of rich purple
But purple blooms are not always easy to come by in your chosen flower and they can also be difficult to color match with dresses, accessories and other items.
Purple Wedding Ceremony Flowers
Popular choices for blooms which come in varying shades of purple
include tulips, crocus, pansies (all great for autumn wedding flowers), freesias,
hibiscus, iris and oh so romantic the trailing wisteria.
Purple and lilac clematis look great in summer weddings as they add an exotic touch
and, as they grow profusely, you may well find some in a friend's garden to lay on
your tables - saving lots of money on expensive centerpieces!
Colors that complement purple are greens making use of the wide range of ferns and other foliage
which again can reduce your flower budget.
Or choose yellow to contrast with deep purple shades -
a great choice for Christmas wedding flowers when you want everything to feel warm and cosy.
Carnations and roses are some of the most popular wedding flower choices but it is often
difficult to match colors to your exact requirements. Many brides often think their "purple"
blooms look blue or dark pink but don't forget that tonal shades work well together.
A great place to buy purple carnations is from Fifty Flowers, like these beautiful purple carnations:
