every variety of violet

Violet is a gorgeous color for a wedding, and it’s important when designing your color palette to use a variety of shades to add depth to the look. (Read more about how to create your color palette here). I wanted to experiment a bit and see what happened when you put every shade of violet into one wedding look & this inspiration board is the result of that!

This ‘every variety of violet’ wedding inspiration board contains amethyst, lavender, violet-blue, thistle, mauve, wisteria purples, orchid tones, plum, deep eggplant, some hints of red-violet, heliotrope, and of course a hearty dose of purple.
