From plum to eggplant, friends know that I’m a fanatic for the color purple. Accessories, decorations, clothing … I’m drawn to anything in the lush, grapey hue. Not lilac or lavender! What I love are the deep, dark tones of the color that was once only available to royalty. Science content from Wikipedia:

The actual color of Tyrian purple, the original color purple from which the name purple is derived, is the color of a dye extracted from a mollusc found on the shores of the city of Tyre in ancient Phoenicia (present day Lebanon) that in classical antiquity became a symbol of royalty because only the very wealthy could afford it. Therefore, Tyrian purple was also called imperial purple.

So, when you’re thinking about wedding colors, purple is really popular and very much on trend right now. The Knot even has a site dedicated to it. And it pairs perfectly with cool gray or silver, which are both super hot choices right now. Gray is definitely the new black and I predict it’s going to everywhere this wedding season.

What do you think of this dynamic duo?

    I love these colors together but I am biased – they are my company colors!
