Wedding Ideas with Shades of Plum

The venue, the napkins on the table, the glassware, the dress, the bridesmaids’ dresses, the food, the cake, the wine – the list of things to think of when it comes to your big wedding day will seem endless. And, truth be told, weddings are indeed quite difficult to plan out.


Choosing a wedding theme color (or more of them) is one of the first things you have to handle, specifically because this will influence many other choices you will have to make. Shades of plum make for wonderful color themes when it comes to weddings and they work especially well with fall and winter weddings as well. However, how do you actually incorporate plum into your big day? Here are some ideas to think of:

  • You don’t have to focus on one shade of plum only – and neither do you have to make everything purple! In fact, mixing various shades of plu with silver and/or white will look absolutely gorgeous.
  • Everything can be “touched” by this color: from your wedding bouquet to the dresses your bridesmaids will wear and from the wedding cake to the table linens. However, make sure you don’t exaggerate and make sure that you leave some things in other colors as well (preferably something neutral such as white).
  • Your food and drinks can also be inspired by this color! For instance, you could go for a dessert bar inspired by plum shades and you could serve anything from candy to macarons in this color. Also, your wedding cake can also have plum elements and some signature drinks with plum juice will definitely impress your guests.

Use your creativity and your purple wedding will be spectacular! And if you are searching for the perfect dress to go with your plum wedding, don’t forget about visiting Fantasy Bridal.

Spring Wedding Dress Trends

The biggest and most important decision a bride makes for her wedding day is picking the perfect spring wedding dress. There is typically a lot of pressure and stress that comes with choosing the perfect gown to wear on your wedding day. Here are the perfect dresses to consider for your Utah spring wedding:

short wedding dress

Short Skirts

With the weather heating up, many brides opt for a non-traditional short dress. Tea-length and above-the-knee dresses are fun, flirty, and perfect for a wedding held during the warmer season. If the dress is shorter it may be better suited for an outdoor wedding than one in a church. The dress can still have a modest touch if you go for a higher neckline and longer sleeves.

Dramatic Backs

When walking down the aisle for your ceremony entrance, the front of your dress gets all the attention, but your dress should be breathtaking from every angle. Designers are now showcasing gowns that have stunning backs that feature lace, intricate buttons, and/or embellishments. Low-cut backs are popular for spring weddings, as well as those held in the summer months.
