Bridesmaid fashion – purple perfection

By admin on March 6th, 2007 2 comments


Purple covers such a wide range of colours that if you lean towards bluer shades you can take the lilac option or if you fancy something with more drama, go for vibrant dark purple. At weddings, the colour works really well because it looks a bit more dramatic than more traditional colours like green or pink as well as providing a great backdrop to brilliant white gowns.

    I’ve chosen a ‘chocolate box’ purple with bright pinki highlights for my BM dresses and I am really pleased with how they look…I can’t wait for Juen when they wear them!

  • ‘Choccy box’ purple is my favourite shade – yummy! What a fab colour combo – very original.
