“Purple Reigns”


As of late, we can almost answer the question before we even ask…..

Us: “Congratulations on your wedding!”

Bride: “Thank you!  I am so excited!”

Us:” Have you decided on your colors?”

Bride: “Oh yes, Purple!”

What is it about the Color Purple?

So many Brides have chosen the ever beautiful deep amethyst color this year paired with colors like bright green, silver and black. It is beautiful with these accent colors.

 Purpleis the color of royalty in the West. Originally difficult to produce, purple is rarely found in nature. Because of its long associations with riches and honor, deep hues of purple remain a popular wedding, reception, and special event color. Light purple evokes romance and magic.

There is no right or wrong answer to the question of whether you should follow a color trend, or go with the colors you love. Indeed, if you follow wedding blogs, pour over wedding publications, and devour wedding books with the passion of many of today’s brides, you’ll soon realize that there are so many color “trends” in any given season, some version of your favorite colors are likely to be represented in there somewhere.

Ideas for choosing the right purple for the season:

Spring-Lavender, Summer-Lilac, Fall –Bordeaux, Winter-Grape

In a nutshell, the colors you choose should speak to you and should make you feel excited. You should love looking at them in a look book or on a palette. If you can accomplish that early on as a first step in the vast array of wedding planning details, it will make every other step less stressful and more enjoyable for you and your vendors.

Thank You From Katie Blackston

Dear Leslie:

I wanted to let you know how  happy we were with the wedding and reception.  The whole day was perfect!  Glen and I have had so many comments on how nice everything was and how accommodating  you and your staff were.  The whole Hazlehurst experience was really stress free and fun.  I also appreciate how well you worked with Katie and respected her wishes and didn’t try to push her into other more costly options.  You picked up on her personality and what was important to her from the very start.  Also, thank  you so much for all of the extras that were provided.  That was a very sweet message that you are more concerned with making the day perfect for Katie and Brad than a profit.

I will be sure to tell my friends what a great experience having a wedding and reception at the Hazlehurst House can be and hopefully send some business your way.

Thanks Again,

DeDe Blackston

Dear Mrs. Felicia:

Thank you so much for everything you have done to make this day more special!  From the moment I met you and the rest of the staff, I knew Hazlehurst House was where I wanted to get married.  Everyone was so willing to help me with anything I needed.

I am very thankful and blessed to have had the opportunity to work with such wonderful people to plan this special day!

Thank you,
