Looking for a Lavender, Violet or Purple Wedding Dress?
November 6th, 2018 Wedding Ideas, Tips and Inspiration
Do you dream of wearing a purple or violet wedding dress? Or perhaps a lighter shade...lavender, for example? If there was ever a time for brides to embrace a purple bridal gown, it’s right now.
Purple is in. In fact, Ultra Violet is Pantone’s “Color of the Year” for 2018. The Pantone Color Institute calls this blue-shade of purple “provocative” and “dramatic.” According to several online sources, purple can symbolize mystery, creativity, power, royalty, magic and luxury. Do any of those words describe you, or the style of your wedding? If so, embrace this trendsetting color and stun your guests (and beloved) by wearing a purple wedding dress...
Purple Wedding Dress
For the first time ever, a Val Stefani bride has several options in this vibrant color. Because we know the bride who’ll choose a non-traditional color is unconventional and marches to the beat of her own drum, our designers incorporated unique styles and fabrics to match her avant-garde personality.
Martinique, style D8194, is a bold wedding dress with feathers and a pearl accented cape. This one-of-a-kind gown features a lace sheath design, daring side slit, deep illusion V-neck with a sexy low V-shaped back. What really makes this gown a show-stopper are the couture details. This purple/violet gown is covered in sequins, pearls and seed beads, with fluffy feathers that float from the natural waist to the floor. You’ll float down the aisle in feathery lightness with a beaded cape flowing behind you. Like the color purple, this gown embodies a regal glamour. The bride who wears it loves the unconventional and appreciates high style.
Lavender Wedding Dress
Prefer a lighter shade of purple? A lavender wedding dress may be the perfect pick for you. Although you can wear any color any time of year, you may feel more comfortable in lavender for an evening spring/summer wedding although wearing this color in winter would be very unique. “Pink Lavender” made its debut as a top pick for Spring 2018 Fashion Color Trend Report by the Pantone Color Institute at New York Fashion Week. If you’re thinking of lavender (or purple) for your wedding, you can feel a bit smug knowing you have a modern and current sense of style!
For brides eyeing a lavender wedding, we chose this color for our Manuela gown, style D8193. This long-sleeve bridal gown and chapel train from Val Stefani is a romantic and charming choice for the offbeat bride. The high bateau neckline and long sleeves provide full coverage but it’s a true illusion wedding dress. Seductively show your legs in this lattice net trumpet skirt, which is subtly sheer yet provides coverage with its built-in briefs. This lavender wedding dress actually blends white and lavender which adds depth to the color and the lace details. Manuela is a unique style for the bride who wants a romantic wedding, or a full-coverage gown with a hint of sexy sophistication.
Violet Wedding Dress

Wear the flowing tulle and organza train all day or night, or easily detach it when you’re ready to dance or cut cake. The color of this violet wedding dress is jaw-dropping. It’s cashmere chantilly lace is paired with violet beaded lace appliques.
