Purple Wedding Color – Combination Options

Purple is one of the most popular wedding colors of all time. We’ve had quite a few brides-to-be ask on our Facebook Page which colors will work with purple for their weddings. To help make it easier to choose a color to combine with purple, we’ve compiled all of our purple-themed color-story collages in to this blog post.

As you can see from the collages below, purple with silver can have a totally different “feel” than purple with red. So if you know you want purple, start there and then consider the 2nd color and its impact on the entire color theme.

There are even more possibilities than what we have shown here. We’ll add more collages as we complete them.

Please click the images below for the large, full-size view (opens in a new window).

We’ll start off with just purple … Shades of Purple. Purple is such a beautiful color that it can stand on its own if you want to make it all purple!

    Purple is so lovely. It is my favorite color and now I see it with Turquoise and see how truly amazing it is. It goes great with other colors as well.

    Can I have cherry purple & bright turquoise blue wedding color combination

    March 27, 2015 at 10:23 pm
    • Exclusively Weddings

      Hi Tyn, So you are asking about cherry red … purple … and turquoise as your combination. Take a look at some of my collages. I have a red and purple one and a red and turquoise and purple and turquoise. I like purple and turquoise as your main colors and then I think you could add pops of red here and there. If you love all three colors, I think if you focus on two of them and add the third as an accent, then I think you’ll be A-OK! Best wishes!

      Hi Melanie, It is easier to work with fewer colors but the purple blue and silver sounds lovely. Adding just a tiny touch of black should be OK. Best wishes for the wedding of your dreams!

      Hi tee, How can I help? Purple with a touch of red should be lovely! Most all ideas that you see can be incorporated in to your own colors.

      Best wishes!

    Where can I find those silver dresses,or the material.The wedding party is the purple and silver wedding

    June 23, 2015 at 12:35 pm
    • Exclusively Weddings

      Hi Joycelyn, The dress is by couture designer, Theia and from 2012. The photo is a celebrity wedding and here is what they say about those gorgeous dresses: “She and seven other bridesmaids wore custom-designed cap-sleeved gowns covered in more than 1 million silver sequins. Their dresses were also by Theia.” Here is a link to the wedding: http://www.brides.com/blogs/aisle-say/2012/09/julie-benz-california-wedding.html. I hope this helps. Best wishes, Sher

    Enjoy the beautiful wedding colours
    I want to know if hotpink,purple and white goes together.

    July 15, 2015 at 7:35 am
    • Exclusively Weddings

      Hi Rebecca, yes, you can use hot pink with purple and white. In my collage I used softer versions of pink and purple but you can go brighter and be fine. Having the white is a good idea to help break up the colors. Best wishes!

    Thank you for your wonderful work in providing us with such lovely collages to pull inspiration from. i’ve decided on Shades of purple, (to allow for possible shade variances from different vendors) White, with pops of Turquoise and silver. Do you feel there is an optimal ratio one should impose when decorating? i mean as a decorator is there a general guideline to make sure pops of colour stay pops, and it doesnt turn into a jumbled garish mass of colour?

    i was thinking along the lines of 30% purple, 40% white, 10% turquoise, 20% silver/”bling”

    im decorating myself, not employing a decorator or wedding planner lol other wise id just leave it in their hands.

    thank you in advance for your much appreciated help

      Meaghan, Fist of all I want to thank you for your appreciation of my collages! I am just delighted that they were of help to you. I really do think your ratio sounds good. You’ve got your main color, purple, with neutrals of white and silver. Then your turquoise at 10% is your pop. It really sounds great! Very best wishes to you, Meaghan!

    I am helping a friend with her wedding. its a batman and catwoman them, but they want to use purple and blue as their colors. I am so scared that this will be a disaster with too many ideas they are trying to cram into one cohesive decor. Help! Any suggestion on how to keep the theme and add their colors without it looking horrible?

    Thank you for the article…I am planning a wedding with yellow, purple and grey. It is both dominant colors. Should I go with a white table cloth , yellow runner and purple serviettes. .
