colour palette inspiration

Purple really brings a feeling of elegance and beauty. This rich color can be paired with almost any color to make the perfect wedding color palette. Purple symbolizes dignity, tolerance and togetherness, and it is also associacted with royalty and spirituality.

A simple white invitation can be tied with a striking purple ribbon, placed in a white envelope with purple lining. Or a lilac card with deep purple print. For a modern twist, a cream card with bold plum polka-dots can be really different.

And there's such a beautiful range of shades to pick from - mauve, lavender, violet, orchid (a light shade that is almost pink), royal purple, mulberry, plum, grape... and every shade in between!

What colors are a compliment to purple? Try yellows, blues, greens, black, pink, and of course, white.
