Lilac & Lavender

Here are a few of my ideas to help you achieve a Lilac & Lavender wedding:

Stationery: Hinting towards your colour scheme, this design is a nice mix of contemporary design and romance with the addition of crystals and ribbon.

Bride: Something simple and floaty similar to the inspiration board would be lovely. I like the idea of adding a purple sash to the dress too: for interest and to complement the colour scheme.

Bridesmaids: Differing shades of purple, from bold to pale, would be a modern choice that would look great!

Shoes: To match the sash. These shoes are suitably frilly with diamantés.

Flowers: White with purple ribbon tying them together. Or purple flowers: I love this hydrangea bouquet or this bunch of lilacs.

Groom/groomsmen: A purple tie and a sprig of lavender for a boutonnière would do!

Decoration: If you have a larger budget then the tall vases filled with various shades of purple blooms make a fantastic table centrepiece. However, if you want something simpler, or budget is tight, then you can’t go wrong with sprigs of lilac or lavender in jars or small vases. I also love the look of the stacked plates in the image, perhaps scour flea markets if you also like this look. Don’t worry about everybody’s plates matching just stick with shades of purple. Spraying plates is always an option but make sure you don’t spray the one the guest is eating off! Touches of metallics work well with this colour scheme too.

Cake: Cupcakes with poured fondant as in the image are suitably simple and pretty for this look. I also think a white tiered cake with purple polka dot ribbon could look really cute!

Favours: Parma violets! In a little jar with polka dot ribbon and a gift tag with the guests’ names, therefore doubling up as place cards and saving you money!

Other ideas: Clusters of paper lanterns in various shades of purple will add to the romance at night.
