The purple, it is said, stands for justice. The green, for faith. The gold, for power.
For a wedding, one might want to replace “power” with love.
Or, to be slightly schlocky: the power of love.
Carnival is a time of indulgence and extravagance before the lean times of sacrifice and penitence of Lent.
It's also a rollicking good time and a pretty enchanting time to get hitched. A pile of beads, some candles, a mask. Flowers and cocktails. Purple, gold, and green. And love. What more do you need?
