Purple Wedding Shoes

Your wedding day should be as unique and individual as you. A true expression of your love for each other. It’s also your day to shine in the spotlight.  Don’t let anyone try and tell you that things must be done in a certain way. Especially when it comes down to what you are wearing. It only needs to be done one way. Your way. Whether you are a traditionalist or a modernist, today is all about you. Your style, your choices and your big wedding day.

The Color of Royalty

So if your vision has always involved a pair of regal purple shoes, we’re here to encourage you to buy them. Yes, don’t worry about what Aunt Mabel might say when she catches a peak of the jewel-colored toes irreverently peeping out from under your bridal dress.

If purple shoes are what you’ve set your heart on, then purple shoes you shall have! After all, the color purple is a majestic color, synonymous with royalty. Truly then it is befitting of a bride-to-be?

The Queen of Burlesque royalty, Dita Von Teese, went all out iridescent Vivienne Westwood purple on her wedding day, proving that if you’ve got it, you really should flaunt it. Whilst your love of purple might not be emboldening you to that extent, a shoe is a perfect accessory to inject some color into your bridal scheme.

The Power of Purple


Purple is actually a very popular choice for weddings as it has a very powerful psychological effect. As well as the historical connection to nobility, purple also symbolizes power, luxury, and ambition and is often a color associated with wealth and extravagance. It makes sense then, that you might be drawn towards this hue on your all-important wedding day when you are making an enduring statement.

Opting for a purple shoe is a cheeky way of injecting some color into your outfit and let’s not also forget that it also makes a fabulous base color for complimentary floral bouquets.

Shades of Purple

You don’t have to go all out Cadburys purple, although this is such a stunning rich shade. There’s plenty of choice on the purple Pantone spectrum depending on how bold a bride-to-be you really are! You could opt for a subtle and very pretty lilac or orchid shade through to a deep magenta or plum. You could also go for something with more of a blue hue, like a lovely thistle color. If you are considering purple shoes for your big day, then you are bang on trend. UltraViolet is actually the Pantone color of the Year for 2018.

How does the color purple affect us physically?

Purple is actually a wise choice for a bride-to-be as it’s incredibly uplifting but at the same time known to help calm the mind and soothe the spirits. A purple shoe then could be just what you need to ease the nerves on your big day. It’s also the color of the Crown Chakra, or the Sahasrara, and is located at the top of the head. As a bride on her big day, you are the Queen of all you survey so again, purple is a pretty befitting color to incorporate into your scheme.

By incorporating the color purple

You are sending out a very clear statement that you are creative and individualistic and that you intend to have the most fabulous wedding day and joyous life.
