Purple Wedding Flower Ideas

Purple and pink hydrangea wedding bouquet.

Using purple wedding flowers is splendid way to bring to your wedding the rich luxurious tones that purple has to offer. Did you know that purple has a long noble history that started in ancient times.

As early as 1570 fabric was dyed purple using a natural dye obtained from predatory sea snails and rock snails. The color of the dyed fabric did not fade but instead when exposed to sunlight and weathering became brighter and for this reason it was highly prized and expensive. Due to the expense of the fabric it became a status symbol and laws were passed as to how it could be used. The production of the dyeing process came under the control of the Imperial Court and with this the color purple quickly became associated with royalty.

Nowadays you don't have to be royal to use purple. With purple wedding flowers you can easily incorporate the magnificent hues they have to offer on your day. No matter what the season is you will always find a purple flower - ranging for the soft delicate lilacs to deep dark tones that almost look like black.
