Lavender Wedding Ideas

Lavender is known to soothe, relax, and can even be used as a remedy to sleep.  It’s lovely color and timeless beauty (whether fresh or dried) makes it a wonderful addition to a wedding.  Lavender has origins across the globe, from Africa and Asia to the Mediterranean and Southern Europe (in ancient times it was even considered a holy herb).  So with its worldly roots, we thought it would make an excellent accent to a destination wedding of course!  Whether in fields in the South of France or touching down in Greece, a little lavender goes a long way to make a lasting impression.

In your wedding ceremony, consider utilizing the herb in bouquets, boutonnieres, potted plants at the altar, or hanging from the pews of a church, the ideas are endless!

For your reception, adorn your tables with centerpieces – potted or in a variety of styles of vases and dinner will smell as sweet as it looks.  Spice up your cocktails with a hint of lavender, infuse it into your menu options (think cheese), opt for lavender flavored macaroons or even dress up your croquembouche or traditional American wedding cake with the sweet smell of lavender.  Yum!  For favors?  Muslin sacks filled with lavender seeds to keep in drawers back home (or use these to toss at the ceremony); and when putting together welcome bags, why not include a lavender eye mask to help guests recover from that jet lag?  Oh how we love the look of lavender!

    The lavender theme is just lovely!  I especially like the lavender piece cuddled up in the back of the chair.  Lovely touch.
