Planning & Inspirations
Lime green and purple wedding theme
Guest contributor: Cathrin D’Entremont from Cathrin D’Entremont Weddings
If you’re a bold bride who wants to make a statement, then it’s hard to beat lime green and purple as a fresh and funky colour palette.
Take the mouth-watering combination of juicy limes and sweet boysenberries as your inspiration and have fun with this eye-popping colour combination.
Décor and styling
Start with a backdrop of white tablecloths and add purple satin table runners for maximum wow factor. Add purple sashes to your chairs, and accent your tables with purple ribbons tied around crisp, white napkins and purple non-drip taper candles surrounded by purple and lime green flowers.
Send your guests home with a keepsake that reflects your theme. Start with chocolates or cookies that have been decorated with lime coloured icing, and then wrap them in lime green or purple paper, and embellish with co-ordinating lime or purple ribbon. You can even try personalising the ribbon with your names and wedding date.
Purple and lime green are a popular colour combination in nature, so look for chrysanthemums, cymbidium, lisianthus, super green roses, iris, African violets and lavender, and add some mint, green apples or boysenberries to the mix for a delightful and edible surprise.
For a bright and bold appearance, dress your bridesmaids in purple dresses. Brides may like to consider purple ribbon in their bouquet. For the groom and groomsmen, white suits with lime green ties are perfect. Alternatively, a lime green orchid makes a stunning statement on a groom’s jacket.
Choose stationery that complements your colour palette, including your invitations, place cards, table numbers, menus, cocktail napkins and seating charts. For something special, create purple and lime green ceremony fans which not only feature day’s program, but helps guests keep cool on a hot afternoon.
