Red and Purple Wedding Inspiration Board

Gorgeous, gothic color scheme: Red and Purple.  Deep, dark, seductive colors envelope you in a sensuous and mysterious aura.  Not for the timid, these colors combined right can result in a gorgeous and romantic weddingscape.

Gown: Created for Dita Von Teese when she married Marilyn Manson by Vivienne Westwood. Piles and piles of gorgeous iridescent taffeta create a shimmery purple and red vision.  Love it!

Cupcakes: Purple and red cupcakes created by Crumbs and Doilies of the UK.

Shoes: Super chic purple satin pumps Electra by Nina in Grape - 3.75 inch heel.  Your toes may not thank you, but your girlfriends will definitely appreciate the surprise!

Centerpieces: Super easy, simple, and powerful, this colorful ensemble can be found at FTD Florists.

Tablescape:  It isn't easy to find red and purple photos, so I was filled with glee when I found this gorgeous tablescape pic from Red Rock Weddings in Las Vegas.  I wanna get married all over again just so I can have the event planners at the Red Rock Country Club create a tablescape like this for me.  Gorgeous!

Engagement Ring:  Okay, I have seen a million dollar pink Tiffany diamond ring, but I would knock someone over to touch this piece of geological perfection.  The ring was sold at a Christie’s auction a few years ago, and at the time, set a new record by selling off this dazzling ring festooned with a unique red purple diamond for a shocking $2.6 million. The octagonal shape of the ring is equipped with 2.26 carats and stand with the honopur of being the largest red diamond, ever to be auctioned. The proud owner of the gem is the English jeweler, Laurence Graff.

Bouquet: Created by Pat and Sherry ( a mother and daughter team) for Pat’s Floral Designs in Charlottesville, Virginia. The bridal bouquet has deep purple hydrangea with deep red dahlias, black mini callas, Picasso mini callas (white with purple throats), deep red coleus foliage, and exquisite purple Vanda orchids throughout.
