In a time before blush and neutrals ruled the wedding scene, purple was one of the most popular colors. From whimsical lavender and violet tones to dramatic eggplant, mulberry and plum shades, purple could be seen at weddings of every style. As trends are slowly starting to favor bold wedding color palettes again, we're beginning to see purple reclaim its place as a major player, especially at fall weddings. We have to admit that we're pretty excited to see where this is going.

Not so convinced? Check out these purple wedding ideas for a fresh spin on the regal color.

This gorgeous fall bouquet has just enough purple-hued flowers—stock, lisianthus, proteas, amaranthus—to break up the mostly green and white arrangement.
