Lavender Weddings

Ideas and Inspirations | Photos and Galleries
Colors: Shade of purple
Motif: Lavender Flowers

A lavender theme is ideal for both bridal showers and weddings - especially if you are having an outdoor garden wedding. Traditionally, lavender has been linked with nuptial good luck and placing lavender in the bride's flowers will help to insure a happy and long-lasting union. If you decide to carry an entire bouquet made of lavender, Lavender Fanatic has 3 sizes to select from. Smaller lavender bouquets would pair perfectly with this bridesmaid dress that includes a matching shawl from Bari Jay (style 759). The best part about lavender wedding bouquets is they will last for years and years without preservation, lavender is a wonderful dried flower. Guests will love to be invited to your event with lavender wedding invitations from fubabee's etsy shop. Favors ideas include either eco-friendly lavender sachets or white chocolate truffles in purple flower pots. Depending on your preference - this wedding cake is absolutely gorgeous and ties into the lavender/purple theme perfectly without overdoing the lavender flowers. Or, if cupcakes are more your style, you can find the recipe for these Lavender Cupcakes here. And serving your guests Lavender Champagne (recipe available at would make your event complete. If you have any other ideas for a lavender event, please leave me a comment.
