Purple is the perfect shade for this season's weddings

A new article claims purple is the perfect colour for upcoming weddings.

According to timesdispatch.com, purple is the most on-trend shade for nuptials right now. As well as representing “love, joy and health”, a purple tone, known as ‘radiant orchid’, was also named by Pantone hot colour for this year. 

Couples who are going to incorporate purple can use it for almost anything too, according to the article, with it reading:  “Purple works well in virtually every aspect of your wedding – bouquets to bridesmaid dresses, favours to table linens. You can even use purple in your wedding cake and desserts by incorporating fruit with purple hues such as plums or deliciously ripe blueberries.”

Those who aren’t a fan of this shade could often for alternatives such as pink or metallics which are also recommended. The former trend has become more prominent due to the rise in popularity of the ‘Great Gatsby’ theme of late. Couples wanting to try this theme should use gold, shiver, bronze and copper to add a “sparkle” to their wedding. Brides could even wear an elaborate piece of jewellery to match in with the theme.

Meanwhile, another article posted on india.com this week talks about what make-up trends are currently big. It is claimed that this season’s hottest lip trend is orange shades, which brides may consider for their big day if they are opting for a bold lip.
