Different Ways to Use Lavender at Your Wedding

Lavender represents beauty and femininity, and is considered to be the grown up pink. Using its pretty purple shades to add colour and detail you you wedding day is easy.

Shropshire Petals share a few of their favourite ways to use lavender at a wedding…

Lavender Decorations

Whatever your wedding theme, bunches of lavender in vases, jars, pots or boxes can add a special touch to your venue decorations, as well as a beautiful scent. You could place containers filled with lavender on the steps leading up to your reception, make a lavender pathway down your ceremony aisle, or, if you are having a marquee reception, you could place large bunches in tall containers outside the entrance.

 

Lavender Bridal Bouquets

Lavender will add texture and a delicate scent to your bridal bouquet, which will be lovely as you walk down the aisle. For a chic and rustic look you could have a small posy bouquet, or you could mix lavender with fresh wild flowers for a country style.

Wheat and lavender bridal bouquet

Our favourite idea is to combine lavender and wheat for a pretty bouquet, and you could try adding some dried or fresh flower stems to suit your wedding theme.

 

Lavender Chair Decorations

Tying lavender bunches, to your reception chairs will add a touch of natural charm, and lavender bunches give of a vibrant colour and scent. They will also look great when combined with wheat to break up the colour.
