In Love With Lavender and Lilac for Weddings...

Here we have a beautiful palette for spring and summer weddings with some really pretty inspirations to add some creative touches too! We have been in love with soft lavender and lilac colour tones this week and were really inspired by another stunning photograph by Elizabeth Messina of Kiss the Groom (See picture 1 on our inspiration board). This beautiful bridal portrait was the basis for our whole inspiration board with this colour scheme in mind...

The headdress by Twigs and Honey worn by the Bride would be matched by pretty little crowns of dried long grass and lavender for the Bridesmaids and Flower Girls too. This soft, romantic, country garden feel led to fresh lavender seeds in cones as confetti. You can even make these cones yourself using doilies, music sheets or vintage papers!

We found the seating cards with a single stem of lavender attached and would use little mis-matched bottles along the tables with further sprigs of Lavender. Big full bloom hyacinths would make lovely simple centrepieces and all of these would smell great too!

The favourite thing we found for our Lavender and Lilac board was the wedding breakfast menus - (see image 4) made using a book with part of the pages cut out and replaced with the menu design and it even has a little pocket on the inside of the book cover entitled 'menu' and holding fresh lavender inside. This is just the sort of unique find we adore and would look great with so many different wedding concepts and style too!

Look out for our future post on how to make your own confetti cones 
with some of our fab finds to make them with too!
