Inspiration Board: Lavender Wedding Theme

There are many trends and fashions in the wedding world, but sometimes your wedding inspiration can grow from the smallest detail.  This is how today’s lavender wedding theme inspiration board came about, I lit a lavender scented candle and was transported to a world of lavender bushes and trying to make lavender scented perfume as a little girl.

For those who are interested apparently Lavender is a shrub part of the mint family whose flowers are a mixture of blue, violet or lilac.  Although we have pigeon holded this colour as “lavender” the lavender wedding theme that I am putting together today incorporates a mixture of all four colours.

Soft lavender inspiration also hit the red carpet at the 2012 Golden Globes with Jessica Alba wearing a pale lilac Gucci dress with Bulgari jewellery.

For those grooms looking to purchase a wedding gift, this Tiffany lavender amethyst rose gold ring would be a perfect addition on the brides non wedding hand.

If your style is classic consider a plain white wedding cake decorated with lavender or other lilac and lavender flowers to match your wedding flowers.  This achieves a clean and elegant look whilst also incorporating a variety of lavender and lilac tones onto the cake, as show in this sophisticated cake by Sugar Plum Cake Shop Paris.

Don’t forget if in doubt a field full of lavender will provide a stunning backdrop to your wedding photos such as these ones by Marie Labbancz Photography.
