Lavender. The name alone evokes an air of romance and charm, not to mention a divine fragrance and the loveliest color! These certainly sound like the perfect elements for a dream wedding, don’t you agree?

But what we’ve done here is to single out some ideas and items we found using lavender in a chic, contemporary way. The final selection has even us swooning over the decorating possibilities—from ceremony to reception!
