Rather than using a single, monochromatic shade of purple for your wedding, we think that using shades of purple creates a much more modern and contemporary look! Inspired by our post on these two toned modern purple wedding invitations, we put together a little purple wedding inspiration taken from our purple wedding board on Pinterest.
While we love the multiple shades of purple used on our Modern Luxe wedding invites (this set featured was done in amethyst, grape and eggplant), doing multiple shades of purple also works very well in the flower bouquets and centerpieces, along with the pretty ombre wedding cake above. In addition to using multiple hues of violet on individual items, you can also break things up by highlighting different shades of purple in different parts of your decor. The lilac flats featured above really strike a bold contrast against the vibrant grape chocolate pastries.
Because the first preview of your big day starts with the wedding invitations, your stationery is an excellent jumping off point for your overall color palette. Don’t be afraid to play with color, you might be surprised at the fun combinations you can come up with!
Our Modern Luxe wedding invitations are normally shown in a bold royal blue color on our website, so it was quite refreshing to see a recent client change them up and do a pretty pastel purple! The result is modern, but softer, and we absolutely adore it.
The text and monogram are shown in grape and eggplant purple, while the borders and polka dot patterned envelope liner are shown in amethyst purple. The mix of light and dark purple hues adds contrast while keeping the invitation suite within the violet color family.
One thing we absolutely love about our Modern Luxe wedding invitation design is the way the borders look when the suite is assembled. The layered style is really unique and packs a visual punch when your guest open their invitations.
We also thought that this couple’s use of the polka dot envelope liner rather than something bolder such as stripes or chevron really went a long way towards creating a purple wedding invitation package that was more on the romantic and whimsical side.
The color options for this suite really are endless and sometimes seeing something in a different hue can affect your overall opinion of a design. More versions of our Modern Luxe invitation in different colors can be found on our blog, or you can head straight to our website to get started on you order!

Purple and Green! How fun are these colors? These two colors are bold and beautiful! The contrast of the light green and deep purple makes this color scheme very visually appealing. Playing up these colors with food is a neat little detail. This can be done by stacking green and red grapes on a stick and putting them in a freezer! They are a great bite sized snack for your guests and are very refreshing on a hot day.
This color scheme goes great with our Modern Luxe Wedding Invitation Design when designed in grape and lime!
