Angela’s Victorian Lilac and Charcoal Gray Inspiration Board

“Hi, my name is Angela, and I am getting married in October 2010. My colors are victorian lilac and charcoal gray. I found your website and thought it was really neat how you created these brides to help out brides, so I was really hoping that you could create a board for me using these colors to help give me some ideas. Thank you.”

Angela, I created your inspiration board using various shades of purple with silver/gray accents. I included purples that matched the dress, as well as a few darker colors and even a periwinkle (which I just love paired with soft purple and gray/silver). I think the bouquets would look beautiful created with the periwinkle dahlia, lavender roses, with the antique lavender hydrangeas. If you want to add in a deeper color, use the sweetpea instead of the hydrangea. Then, you can accent your bouquet with beautiful gray eucalyptus and wrap the bouquet stems with a silver ribbon.

Dress from David’s Bridal.
