Purple Wedding Day

By Innstilettos
As part of a color themed wedding series, today we will look at purple for your wedding.  Brides have definitely broadened their horizons.  They have ventured away from the traditional white gown to hues that are their favorite.

If you have been reading my blog, there is no surprise that this was my favorite.  If you haven't, a picture says a thousand words...it is over the top!  I love how they fused so many different shades together.  If it had been described to me I don't think I would have liked it but the mass of flowers and graduating color shades up the cake make this a beauty in my book.
