Purple wedding shoes | Photo by Charlotte Geary

      Hello, wedding planners! I know that lots of you are busy putting together the final touches for your weddings, so I thought it was a great time for me to return to my regular Wedding Ideas posts. I have such a huge collection of photos of wedding details that I love to use them to help inspire people for their own wedding planning.

      Here are some helpful links for wedding ideas:

      The big color of the moment is purple. I saw tons of purple last year, which of course I loved, because it’s one of my two favorite colors. (My own wedding’s color theme was blue and purple.) Here are some photos of purple weddings, with great ideas for dresses, flowers, decorations, and favors. Enjoy!

      Beautiful colors and compositions in these wedding photographs!

      Excellent tones and comp. Very appealing. I especially like the use of available light, great focusing technique and your subjects appear natural and at ease. Nicely done.

      Hey Charlotte, love the purple theme. I have seen some this year and have this idea in the back of my head “this is Mrs Geary’s idea” :-).Hope the boys are well. Best, D.

      Pictures are just amazing. I really like this purple theme.

      Gosh, I love your photos so much Charlotte!
