I did a google search for “unique purple wedding cakes” and the results are very diverse. Since you already know that you’d like either a 1 or 2 tier cake, I’d start with the basic shape. Do you like square vs round? I think the square is more unique, personally.

As for flowers that stand out….hrm. You might have to start with things you don’t like and can eliminate right off the bat. For instance, I hate flowers that are dyed green, so that took out a bunch of potential contenders. Then think of your shape. Round bouquet or cascading, or rustic and hand-gathered? Know your basics and build on them.

Other colors to use… yellow is the compliment of purple, which could lend a bold feel. Or you could do what me and my SIL both did and use a color that’s next to it on the color wheel. I did blue and green and she did orange and red. I wasn’t sold on the orange and red at first but it worked beautifully! Maybe incorporate some blues and reds in with your purple scheme and see if that works for you. I know it’s blasphemy, but try the knot and look at their color scheme builders.
