I’m writing this post looking out on to my garden where at the moment there’s an abundance of beautiful lavender.  It’s such an elegant flower with a gorgeous unique scent a perfect choice as a bridal flower.

In many wedding cultures and traditions, lavender is also a symbol of luck, loyalty and love.   It also conjurs up thoughts of Provence in France and has a soft rustic and chic vibe about it.

There’s many ways to incorporate lavender into your big day with the obvious one being in your bouquet.  For all you DIY Brides, lavender is a great flower to use. I put together a simple boutonniere using some sage, also from the garden just using some simple twine.  It would look equally beautiful with some co ordinating ribbon.

Here’s a few more ideas to use lavender……

  • Dry some lavender to use as organic and biodegradable confetti
  • Use as a garnish in your reception cocktails
  • Plant a small lavender plant as a bomboniere or make some soap using lavender also as a bomboniere

Lavender is also a really versitile colour and can be nixed with many different colours and hues such as gold, magenta and green to create a really elegant wedding palette.  To help you on your way, here’s a link to a pinterest board we’ve put together.

Happy planning!
