Move over millennial pink, melodramatic mauve is poised to become the wedding world’s most popular pastel hue. We’ve seen this light, whispy purple trending in everything from clothing to home decor, and we’re watching it take the bridal world by storm. Singer Lorde is credited with helping the hue take flight when she wore a ruffled mauve dress to the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards (the word “melodramatic” was added as a nod to her album, Melodrama). This colour is slightly moody yet still romantic, a refreshing departure from the blush shades many brides favour. Here are some creative ways to incorporate melodramatic mauve into your wedding day.
