There have been SO many pretty purple destination weddings on You Mean The World To Me recently that I couldn’t help but pull together some of the pleasing styles as a wedding theme inspiration post.  


Delicate lilac and lavender hues are teamed with dusky pinks and mauve tones whilst bright and bold purple is mixed with hot pink for an eye-catching palette. Set these shades against off-white and metallic accessories for a modern twist on a vintage-esque theme – which will work perfectly against a sunshiny backdrop if you are getting married abroad.


From bridesmaid dresses and bridal bouquets to groomsmen shirts and the grooms bowtie this trend can work beautifully across all aspects of your wedding day – you can even rev up the dance floor with some violet lighting or serve up some pretty plum coloured cocktails!

Photographer:   Julie Comfort of Comfort Studio


Sometimes you only need to lay your eyes on one single wedding photograph for you to know that what you see before you is going to be Amazing (yes, with a capital A!).


Of course you guessed right…today’s delightful destination day in Costa Rica is beyond-doubt one of those wonderful weddings and I guarantee it will have you instantly obsessed.


Reza proposed to Lia whilst on a vacation together in Costa Rica and so it seemed only right to hot-foot-it back to this little piece of paradise that they hold dear to their hearts, along with their close family and friends for their nuptials.


They held their darling day at the luxury beach resort of Reserva Conchal; ‘a spectacular resort nestled between the lush tropical forests of Costa Rica and the shimmering Pacific Ocean, with pristine stretches of ivory sand overlooking the Catalinas Islands.’ Sounds all-kinds-of-dreamy right? Well it certainly was and with a little help from wedding planner extraordinaire Weddings Costa Rica they produced a heart achingly beautiful day to remember!


Every fabulous feature is seriously swoon-worthy; the delicate combination of pretty purple hues against crisp white tones with a hint of metallic is simply perfection and Lia and Reza’s big day style complimented their modern vintage theme impeccably with Lia rocking a gorgeously graceful gown along with a stylish flower crown.


The oh-so-talented Julie of Comfort Studio was also there to capture every magical moment of this breathtaking beachside day.
