Purple has long been a popular choice of colour for a wedding and while it is most commonly associated with royalty, when used in a wedding it symbolises passion, wisdom and happiness. I think purple, especially darker shades of purple look beautiful contrasted against bright shades of green. It’s also a really flattering colour that suits most complexions so you won’t need to worry about finding a colour to suit all your bridesmaids. In fact, soft shades of lilac have proved a popular choice for brides with some even opting for a wedding dress in this shade – a great example is Sophia Coppola’s wedding dress which is perfect for a more informal and relaxed wedding.

This gorgeous wedding reception caught my eye for its unusual seating arrangement. A lot of brides and grooms are dispelling with the traditional seating arrangement of a head table for the bridal party for a more relaxed layout. I doubt many venues would have the option and space for a seating arrangement like this but it sure does look super stylish under the canopy of fairy lights! What type of seating arrangement did you go for?
