Deep Purple Plum Wedding Colors
Deep purple plum colors take their power from dark, rich colors that appear purple but have colors such as dark red, royal purple, plum, royal blue, and navy blues. In the late nineteenth century, these colors started to be used for newly-painted ceilings and curtains and were associated with social elites. In the 1920s, purple plum colors became traditionally associated with romance and love, making them the colors associated with weddings. Deep purple plum colors were closely related to the season of fall.
Plum Wedding Bouquets
There are many tasteful ways to use this deep purple color in your wedding flowers. If you want to balance out the deep purple with others, purple flowers paired with the shades of pink, white, and a touch of orange could make the most elegant wedding centerpiece. Another option is to use in a plum color bouquet that combines all three colors. For an even softer version of the deep purple, you could use ivory flowers and your wedding palette.
