Purple Wedding Flowers List

I have put together a list of purple wedding flowers. There are probably lots of other flowers I can add to it and I will as I come across them.

You can use these purple flowers for wedding centerpieces, decorations and in the bridal bouquets.

If you have decided to have purple as your wedding theme color then you may also like to choose one of these purple flowers as a main element of your theme. For example you could go with purple orchids and then carry that theme through to your wedding stationery, wedding decorations, centerpieces, bridesmaid dresses and so on.

I have given information on availability by season but this will probably also depend on your location. Some of these flowers easily grow in home gardens and others you will need to get from your florist. It will also depend on how large your wedding is as to how many flowers you will need for centerpieces and decorations.
