Pretty In Purple - A Purple Wedding

Today, another addition to my posts on color and this time we are going to talk about the color PURPLE.
Wedding Dress Fantasy

Purple symbolizes magic and mystery as well as royalty. Julius and Augustus Caesar, emperors of Rome, both decreed that only the emperor could wear purple. When Nero became emperor, the wearing of purple and even the sale of purple was punishable by death.

Purple was the color of the first dye made by man. It was called "mauvine" and was made out of coal tar. The recipe was discovered by William Henry Perkin in 1856.

Leonardo da Vinci believed that the power of meditation increases ten times when done in a purple light as in the purple of a stained glass window.
