In Love With Lavender Weddings- Rustic Romance


There is something so romantic and feminine about lavender.  From the heavenly smell to the delicate blooms, this flower is perfect for a Lavender Wedding Theme.  We carry it in dried bundles that can be cut to make small projects, or combined with other bundles to make a centerpiece by itself.  Have you ever seen a bouquet with lavender in it?  It is so simple and lovely that it makes a perfect wedding bouquet.

We decided to include it in our Fall barn wedding photo shoot this year because it works so well for lavender weddings.  It couldn’t be simpler to create some amazing designs, and a little can go a long way!

Take these place settings, for instance.  We took some card stock, penned the name, and then used a bit of floral tape to wrap some sprigs of dried lavender. We cut two openings into the side of the card stock and tucked the wrapped sprigs right in there. Voila! Super simple and very inexpensive, yet tasteful and elegantly sweet. ( I think it took us less than 5 mins to assemble the whole thing.)

How about napkin rings? Sometimes dressing up a table for purple wedding themes is as simple as adding a touch of color at the place setting.  Napkin rings can be costly, but this pretty lavender accent will add class to your table settings without adding burden to the wedding budget.
We wrapped another few sprigs of lavender with some floral tape (larger sprigs this time) and secured it within the napkin with a soft chiffon ribbon.  The chiffon adds romance and the lavender adds a touch of color and is considered to be a wildflower, which goes well with both rustic and barn themed weddings.

For a centerpiece that is natural and beautiful, try using stem wrap to tie two bundles together.  Finish with a chiffon ribbon for a fragrant centerpiece that anyone can create.  To create bouquets that tie in with the lavender theme, simply cut some longer sprigs from the bundle and add them to other flowers of your choice.  We chose some white pom-pom mums, and we used our handy stem wrap to tape them all together, finishing with the chiffon ribbon for the perfect lavender bridal bouquets or lavender wedding flowers.

Lavender is great because it is so versatile and the color will blend with many wedding theme ideas. It’s perfect for wedding themes by color,
including purple wedding themes. Imagine candles, soft lighting, and a hint of lavender in the evening air. How romantic!

Just because you aren’t having a barn wedding doesn’t mean you can’t have this rustic and romantic flower in your arrangements.  It will work well outdoors and indoors, and the little buds that come off the bundles can be tucked into the bottom of your containers instead of stones or marbles, or inside little bags for the perfect sachet wedding favor. Your guests can enjoy the soft fragrance long after you say “I do” and will remember how lovely your wedding was.
