I think its a great idea! We are going with Navy kippot, and we are having a black tie wedding affair. 

I think its fine, and remember its whatever YOU like. 

I think the same ol plain ol white/silver/black kippa is boring….way to add some life to it with purple! And plus when you look back in 20-30 yrs, ull be like i had purple kippot, how awesome, or omg…haha 😉

I’ve seen a lot of colored kippot at weddings. We went with ivory just because our main color was pink and I didn’t think boys would like that.

I was going to ask the same question about purple kippot! The dark purple matches our color scheme but our wedding is very formal. In the end, my Future Mother-In-Law overruled it and we’re going black. But I think the purple would have been awesome.

I think you should go for it!  We found VERY colorful ones and loved them and went with it – I’ll be revealing them soon on the blog, but believe me, they were fun and whimsical and everyone wound up loving them because they were so different!

i had similar questions! we’re having the most fancypants wedding i can think of (black tie, saturday evening, manhattan…who do we think we are, honestly) and we’re going with dark purple kippot because i actually thought ivory would look stranger with the tuxedos (spots of white with all that black) and that black might look too High Holy Days kippot or funereal.  though silver sounds like an elegant compromise…

We had purple and silver kippot at our wedding, and they turned out quite lovely.  It’s your wedding, why not show off your style or your love of color?!  Come to think of it, we’ve been to a lot of Jewish weddings, of all levels of formality, and more often than not, there were colored kippot.

Here’s a photo of them in action:

Definitely go for color!  Ours were dark green (one of our colors) and they looked great.  We ordered way too many and pull them out now for shabbat and any other time my hubs needs a kippa!

i think dark purple would look great. it’s not like you’re doing neon green or anything! if you’re worried about it not looking formal enough, you can always order leather ones instead of the satin ones and i’ve even seen them for not toooo much more than the basic ones.

definitely go for color.  I LOVE pictures with colored kippahs.  I think it adds so much interest to the pictures and ceremony.
