I’m planning to carry an all purple or purple and white bouquet but I’m having a hard time finding one I love to give my florist as inspiration. A lot of the purple bouquets I keep seeing are lavender-ish rose arrangement that aren’t my style and look kind of old-fashioned to me. I would like to incorporate at least some deeper/brighter purples (without getting too tropical-looking because it doesn’t really fit with the feel of my wedding) but I’m not against having lighter shades mixed in!
My girls are already wearing different shades of purple dresses so I don’t really want to bring many other non-purple colors into my bouquet although I guess small amounts of a complimentary color like pink or blue or some greenery could be OK. Basically I have no idea what I’m talking about so help, please 🙂 Show me some beautiful purple or purple mix bouquets!

@every1cheer: I’m also doing shades of purple as my colors, so I’ve got lots of bouquet inspiration saved!

Wowza! OK, I can’t compete with the PP — those are some beautiful bouquets!
I just wanted to suggest lisianthus as a great go-to deep purple flower that is still very ruffly and full. I think the bouquet above this post is mostly lisianthus, FYI. Cosmos and clematis are also great dark purple flowers.
Freesia is a lighter purple, but still lovely. And hydrangea of course, if you want a BIG flower. There’s a lot of range in the colors for hydrangeas.
Finally, for a somewhat different shape, you can get calla lilies in both a dark reddish purple, and Picasso calla lilies, which are white with a purple heart.
Good luck! You’ve got some stunning options above.
