Spring Wedding Inspiration in Violet, Purple, and Lavender
Spring is the season of flowers! So, make the most of lovely florals like hydrangeas, lilacs, lavender, lilies, hyacinths, tulips, irises, and lisianthus to bring this wedding palette to life. These fabulous inspirational images show how it’s done!
Beginning with the ceremony, have your bridesmaids provide a pretty preview of the chosen springtime palette. Choose a dainty short dress in soft plum (1) for each of them to wear, accented with dainty lace at the neckline and a sparkly sash at the waist.
For your reception tablescapes, create a definite wow factor with long tables lined down the entire length with vases of lilacs and bunches of hydrangeas (2), and stunning crystal chandeliers overhead. Above the welcome table, drinks station, or favors display, hang a matching “hula hoop” floral chandelier (3) brimming with hydrangeas and draped with ribbons. While nosegays of purple asters would make the sweetest accents on each guest’s chair (4).
A springtime wedding cake (7) would also be the perfect chance to use fresh, edible flowers as embellishments – just be sure to take the recommended precautions. While violet macarons with primrose cream (5) and other confections infused with lavender would be a special treat to surprise your guests with. And for your signature wedding drink, how pretty would it be to have a purple-tinted martini, novelty cocktail, or creamy concoction thanks to Monin violet syrup (6)?
Your wedding favor packaging, too, can be truly pretty in purple. Just think heart-shaped woven boxes (8a) for giving cookies and candies, or pouches embroidered with sprigs of lavender (8b) for holding potpourri or scented soaps. Or in keeping with the season, why not give guests African violets in china tea cups (9) to bring a little bit of spring home with them?
