Lavender Lust

Lavender Lust! Create A Delicate Garden Wedding

Recently we invited you to the secret garden with some great inspiration for quirky outdoor wedding props. The allure of a mystical outdoor affair proved too much for us and in today’s wedding colour palette we are lusting after all things lavender!

Dream big with this wedding colour scheme by taking inspiration from the flowing fields of summer lavender in the Provence Region of France. These shades of purple will bring rustic garden chic to your special day.

 Our tips for creating your very own purple haze heaven:

Style: The colour lavender evokes feelings of feminine delicacy. Light fabric dresses such as chiffon and tulle will enhance the magical atmosphere of your chic garden nuptials. Lavender crowns and dewy make up will bring this rustic outdoor fairytale to life.

Flowers: For your midsummer nuptials hybrid lavender varieties known as lavandins are the best choice for your bridal bouquet. These are typically heat-tolerant, perfect for when the temperature rises during your ceremony and reception. To create a bit of mixture, add deep green foliage and ivory florals to your bouquet. Tie with a simple string of yarn in-keeping with a French country theme.

Foodie: Go purple crazy with lavender inspired desserts. Delectable Parisian macarons or lavender and vanilla cupcakes are perfect treats for small relatives on your big day. While rustic French break rolls paired with cheese and wine is a great alternative food station for the adults.
