5 Lavender Wedding Details We Love
5 Lavender Wedding Details We Love
I was walking up to my Mother’s house this morning when I noticed her beautiful lavender bush blooming and buzzing with honeybees. I’m not bothered much by honey bees so I stopped….and (you guessed it) smelled the lavender!
Mmmmm such a relaxing, warm, herbal scent. So, I picked a few sprigs, arranged them in a beautiful cobalt blue bottle (conveniently finished that local olive oil last night) and set to work on all things lavender and weddings! It turns out lavender, as an herb, is cherished for symbolizing devotion, joy and luck, making it the perfect addition to a wedding celebration.
Let me tell you, I was blown AWAY with the beautiful lavender wedding details, here’s a look at a few of my favorites.
One. Lavender Invitations - Incorporate the lavender right from the start to set the stage for a lavender theme that carries throughout your entire wedding. These printed lavender wedding invitations (top left) by the Paper Charm Store provide a simple but elegant customized look. Or, include real lavender sprigs tied with twine for a more rustic look (right) like these lovelies from No Grey Invitations, or use a single dried sprig (bottom) like Paper Cake Designs.
Two. The Wedding Aisle - Mix Flyboy Naturals Fragrant Plum Rose Petals (right) or Flyboy Naturals Shabby Chic Rose Petals (left) with Bulk Dried Lavender for a unique herbal walkway that will delight all the senses.
You can also tie fresh or dried lavender to the chairs created a beautiful aisleway rich with lavender as shown here at a green garden wedding in Louisiana (left) and featured on Style Me Pretty (right), this is also a perfect opportunity to carry over the twine if you used those on the invitations.
Three. Bouquets - Lavender is incredibly easy to work with, lending a natural wildflower or herbal look to any bouquet. It can be used fresh or dry, alone or mixed with other flowers. It’s easy to find all year long because it can be preserved and it’s great for eco-friendly, green weddings because it can be reused, biodegraded and is a drought-tolerant plant that requires minimal water to grow. This all-lavender bouquet (left) featured on Style Me Pretty is simple, romantic and elegant. Mix lavender with garden roses and other wildflowers (right) for a more bohemian vibe, this bouquet can be ordered from Kate Said Yes on Etsy.
Four. Boutonnieres - Of course lavender lends itself equally well to the boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen. Check out this entire styled-shoot from Paige and Blake Photography featured on Wedding Chicks where they came up with this lavender and wheat boutonniere (left) or for a fresher, more modern look check out this lavender, dusty miller and succulent boutonniere (right) from Stoneblossom Floral & Event Design.
Five. Escort + Place Cards - There’s so many unique ways to use lavender along with your escort or place cards, here’s a few standouts. These simple tags tied with lavender and twine hung from a beekeeper’s rack at a Sonoma, California Lavender Farm is simple and sweet:
The bride’s father designed these simple escort cards with a hole punch and a stem of lavender for each one (top left). On the right, we have the gorgeous place cards that go along with the tags featured above from the Sonoma Lavender Farm wedding and finally we have these delicate lavender sprigs tied with a simple name and table number from Tanya Malott Photography (bottom left).
I could have gone on and on with this blog as I haven’t even touched on the lavender wedding arches, the lavender featured cocktail drinks, wedding cakes like this fabulous crepe cake, petal tosses, thank you gifts and so much more, but maybe we’ll follow up with a Part II in the future.
