Whether you're putting the final touches on your winter wedding or prepping for your spring "I dos," an amethyst and blush color combo is seasonally appropriate for just about any time of the year. Romantic blush is a perennially popular shade for wedding décor, while deep amethyst gives the sweet shade a formal upgrade.

For a winter wedding, go heavy on the amethyst to help warm up your space in the colder weather, and use pops of blush to leave the space feeling airy and bright since the deeper tones. For warmer weather celebrations, work with a mainly blush palette and use amethyst details to add depth and visual interest.

Start with a pretty invitation that uses both shades, but keep it masculine with simple text and lots of white space. Whether you pick a purple-hued bridesmaids dress or a pink option, you can feel confident your 'maids will love either choice.

You have boundless options when it comes to your bouquet, but we love a pretty mix of tulips. For your favors, gift friends and family wrapped soaps in these two elegant shades.
