25 Beautiful Purple Wedding Bouquets We Love

As you work with your florist to choose a color palette for your bouquet, consider something unexpected. Purple arrangements may not often make their way down the aisle, but choosing flowers in this bold hue is one of the easiest ways to ensure your bouquet makes a statement. What you may not realize is that many of your favorite flowers—including roses, lilacs, anemones, dahlias, orchids, and hydrangeas—are all readily available in shades of purple. Even better, you can find them year-round.

Because there are so many different shades of purple—everything from the palest lavender to the deepest plum are fair game for wedding flowers—the hue is incredibly versatile. We especially love to see purple paired with its complementary color—yellow—for a more romantic feel, but think it looks just as good as a bright pop in an all-white bouquet. And if you really love this color, go big with a monochromatic bouquet, as Petals by the Shore did here. The pros showcased many of purple's different shades in the form of anemones, roses, sweet peas, tulips, and hyacinth.

Another reason the color is so versatile? The fact that so many different flowers are naturally available purple tones means you can pick and choose the blooms that work best with your wedding style. For a classic look, consider garden roses or dahlias in a pale shade. For something a little more modern, ask you florist to work with deep plum orchids or anemones. Simply put, this color won't look out of place on your big day regardless of your personal style.

If you're still not sure how to bring the right amount of purple into your bouquet, we've rounded up some of our favorite arrangements. Let these beautiful mixes inspire your own.
