The colour we can't stop pinning...

We’re calling it: purple might be one of the best (read: prettiest) colours going around. And we are OBSESSED.
Think about it: purple is the colour of royalty, Cadbury and, if we’re being honest, it’s the best flavour of jellybean too. With more shades of purple than you could poke a paintbrush at, it’s a cinch to work a purple hue into your wedding. There are deep plums and mulberries (yes, that’s a real colour) for winter weddings, and light lilacs and lavenders for summer.

But if the thought of committing to purple has images of Barney the Dinosaur or Violet from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory flashing through your mind, don't fret. You can easily add hints of purple to your day with your bouquet, your stationery or with a slick of lipstick. So, to give your colour-spiration mood board a serious lift, we’ve gone purple mad with bridesmaids' dresses, jewellery, decorations and everything else you could possibly need... and will most definitely want. 
Sheike Lilac Oasis Maxi Dress
Your bridesmaids will love you for decking them out in this lilac frock – and when they're wearing something that looks this good, why wouldn't they? This dress is perfect for a coastal wedding or a relaxed do in the country.  
Shoes of Prey Chloe
When you have a front split in your dress, you need a pair of killer shoes to show off too (and we think that's all the reason you need to buy these beauties!).
OPI Lost My Bikini in Molokini
There are nail lacquers that you buy, use once and never wear again. This reef-inspired varnish is NOT one of those. Wear it to your wedding, on your honeymoon, to work and to every other occasion where your nails need some love. Plus, it has an awesome name (and that's enough for us). 
Bendon Stella McCartney Clara Amethyst Soft Cup Bra
Sure, only your husband will see this on your wedding day but that doesn't mean your underwear can't get in on the colour game too.
Etsy Bunting Lavender Chevron
What happens when purple meets chevron? Bunting perfection. The different patterns on these strands make sure your wedding won't look like a country fair (unless that's your thing), and grey keeps the bunting modern. 
Purple yam and sweet coconut cake
Before you throw up your arms up in protest of artificial colourings and flavourings, there's no purple food dye to be seen here – it's all natural. The bright shade comes from purple yams and sweet coconut, and because yams are a vegetable that means this cake is totally good for you. Right?!
Rachel Gilbert Marique Dress
We're going to come right out and say it: you just might have to keep this for yourself.  
Etsy Watercolour Invitation
We didn't think it was possible to love watercolour stationery any more than we already did... until we saw this lovely print. If we could have some to replace our humdrum Post-It notes, we would.  
The Iconic Dorothy Perkins Lace Pencil Dress
The deep plum shade of this dress will suit most skin tones and flatter most body types – good news if you have brides with different body shapes!
Samantha Wills Amethyst necklace
If you're a boho bride who loves her crystals and minerals, this amethyst necklace could be your new favourite piece of jewellery. The rose-gold chain caught our eye, but gold and rhodium chains are also available. Resin Dew earrings
If it's only a splash of purple you want, these handmade earrings are it. The petite design will add a small pop of purple and the studs look gorgeous when paired with a loose bun or slick updo. 

Viktoria Novak Garden of Gordon
If you're still not sure if purple is the hue for you, opt for a smoky shade like this chic crown. The darker purple looks beautiful for a winter wedding, and these flowers won't wilt like a traditional flower crown. Bonus!
Cake Ink Pinterest
Because you can never have enough cake. 
MAC Heroine lipstick
You know a lipstick is a game-changer when it's brought back from limited-edition-limbo to become part of MAC's permanent collection. Getting your hands on this vibrant, matte lippy calls for a run, not a walk. 
The Iconic Truese Arise Maxi Dress
There's no chance of losing your bridesmaids in a crowd if they're donning this bright, eye-catching dress. The two-tone frock is made for a ceremony on the beach (no dragging hems) and is one your leading ladies will be wanting to wear post-nuptials too.
