Purple: The Details

When planning a wedding, it’s important to remember that your color palette doesn’t have to be restricted to your flowers and bridesmaid’s dresses. While I’m not recommending a purple overload, feel free to use purple in some unexpected places.

One great example is the ink on your stationery:

Another place to bring in a punch of color is with a signature drink – the grape martini, of course!

Since colored shoes are en vogue, how about some purple Manolos?

You could top things off with a fantastic purple cake:
