Purple Flower Centerpieces

Enhance your lavender or plum-themed nuptials with purple flower centerpieces for summer weddings. The many shades of purple available make it the perfect choice for a wedding year round, but purple flowers blooming at summer weddings are especially stunning, whether your reception is held indoors or out.

Modern Purple Centerpieces

Choose a modern design for your centerpieces by placing a small purple bouquet into a grouping of square boxes. Set them at an angle and they can be placed down long banquet tables for a contemporary look that is easy to achieve.

Floating Purple Blooms

Fill bowls with water and add some floating purple blooms. Roses may be a popular choice, but light lavender and white daisies make pretty choices, too.

Dried Lavendar Bunches

Mix things up by using dried lavender bouquets as centerpieces at a rustic or country-themed wedding. Tie bunches together with string or raffia and place in the center of a rectangular table. Hang similar bunches from the front of the head table.

Mutli-Flower Centerpiece

A purple flower centerpiece does not have to include only purple flowers. Create a multi-colored centerpiece that highlights the purple flowers without being overwhelming. A couple of light purple candles completes this centerpiece.

Simple Centerpieces

While large topiaries may be a trendy centerpiece, a simple vase with purple flowers and filler is a great way to showcase the natural beauty of the blooms. This centerpiece is especially appropriate at an outdoor wedding in a garden.

Unique Centerpieces

Use uncommon objects to hold the floral centerpiece. Mason jars and water pitchers add a charming country element to any bouquet with purple or lavender flowers.

Purple Accents

Even if purple is your accent color, you can still include it in your summer centerpiece. Red or yellow roses look especially pretty when accentuated by purple flowers like hydrangeas or statice.

Purple Monochrome Centerpiece

Take purple to the extreme by making the entire centerpiece purple, not just the flowers. Look for purple vases or jars and then add summer wedding flowers like gerber daisies in shades of purple for a monochromatic centerpiece.

Themed Purple Centerpiece

Finally, remember that purple flower centerpieces for summer weddings can also be used in theme weddings. This grape and wine-themed centerpiece is perfect for a vineyard reception.
