There have been SO many pretty purple destination weddings on You Mean The World To Me recently that I couldn’t help but pull together some of the pleasing styles as a wedding theme inspiration post.  

 

Delicate lilac and lavender hues are teamed with dusky pinks and mauve tones whilst bright and bold purple is mixed with hot pink for an eye-catching palette. Set these shades against off-white and metallic accessories for a modern twist on a vintage-esque theme – which will work perfectly against a sunshiny backdrop if you are getting married abroad.

 

From bridesmaid dresses and bridal bouquets to groomsmen shirts and the grooms bowtie this trend can work beautifully across all aspects of your wedding day – you can even rev up the dance floor with some violet lighting or serve up some pretty plum coloured cocktails!

Lia & Reza   ♥   Guanacaste, Costa Rica

Photographer:   Julie Comfort of Comfort Studio

 

Sometimes you only need to lay your eyes on one single wedding photograph for you to know that what you see before you is going to be Amazing (yes, with a capital A!).

 

Of course you guessed right…today’s delightful destination day in Costa Rica is beyond-doubt one of those wonderful weddings and I guarantee it will have you instantly obsessed.

 

Reza proposed to Lia whilst on a vacation together in Costa Rica and so it seemed only right to hot-foot-it back to this little piece of paradise that they hold dear to their hearts, along with their close family and friends for their nuptials.

 

They held their darling day at the luxury beach resort of Reserva Conchal; ‘a spectacular resort nestled between the lush tropical forests of Costa Rica and the shimmering Pacific Ocean, with pristine stretches of ivory sand overlooking the Catalinas Islands.’ Sounds all-kinds-of-dreamy right? Well it certainly was and with a little help from wedding planner extraordinaire Weddings Costa Rica they produced a heart achingly beautiful day to remember!

 

Every fabulous feature is seriously swoon-worthy; the delicate combination of pretty purple hues against crisp white tones with a hint of metallic is simply perfection and Lia and Reza’s big day style complimented their modern vintage theme impeccably with Lia rocking a gorgeously graceful gown along with a stylish flower crown.

 

The oh-so-talented Julie of Comfort Studio was also there to capture every magical moment of this breathtaking beachside day.

You Mean The World To Me

Throughout each year the global masterminds of colour at Pantone deliver delicious reports on the hot hues for the seasons ahead. Having studied the SS14 catwalk shows of New York Fashion week, Pantone produced the palette featured above which highlights the central colours for spring next year.  

 

If you’re looking for some stylish ideas for your big day theme, these fashion forward colour combinations are guaranteed to tick all of the trend boxes. Plus, there will be a plentiful supply of wedding day pretty hitting the shops in these pastels early next year as predicted by Pantone, thus making it super easy to find the perfect pieces to match your theme.

 

First up for inspiration from the Pantone palette is Violet Tulip:

“A romantic, vintage purple which evokes wistful nostalgia.”

“Designers take a modern twist on the traditional for spring 2014 by pairing soft pastels with vivid brights to create a colorful equilibrium. Inspired by a mixture of blooming flowers, travels abroad and strong, confident women, designers use color to refresh, revive and defy conventional wisdom.” – pantone.com

 

“This season, consumers are looking for a state of thoughtful, emotional and artistic equilibrium,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “While this need for stability is reflected in the composition of the palette, the inherent versatility of the individual colors allows for experimentation with new looks and color combinations.”

 

Check out some colourful ways to incorporate versatile violet tints into your wedding…
