Lilac : a delicate and subtle colour for your wedding day

I have chosen lilac today as the colour for a wedding. It is delicate,subtle and elegant just perfect to give your wedding a sweet, romantic touch. With the help of good wedding professionals, these inspiring ideas as well as others you may have, can be used as the starting point and adapted to help you turn your wedding into something unique, beautiful and special.

As always I recommend you pay attention to wedding accessories such as shoes, headdresses and wedding bouquet. They look great in shades of lilac, like this original headdress, and will certainly enhance your wedding dress.

Lilac is a lovely colour for your wedding reception and it blends in beautifully with other colours such as greens and pale yellows. In these two photographs they have chosen beautiful flower arrangements for the marquese and chinese paper lamps for the trees. They look great as does the simple and elegant flower arrangements on the tables or the delightful napkins with the menus inside.

Some lovely ways of decorating the garden on your wedding day

If you are thinking about celebrating your wedding outdoors, here are some ideas about how to enhance the natural beauty of the garden or yard.

Mother nature offers us lots of beautiful and interesting corners that we can make even more attractive with simply arranging some nice flowers in unusual containers, hanging lights and candles around or even placing wooden sign posts in an unusual and whimsical place in the garden, as you can see in this photo.

Trees are a source of inspiration. You can make them really stand out just by hanging lights, paper lanterns, pom pons or flowers in jars. Don´t forget to use things like tree trunks, old wooden benches or even bales of straw to arrange desserts, drinks, wedding favors etc.  In these photos you will find some lovely ideas !

An unusual hole in the wall, some rocks …. can be the ideal place for a nice, bright flower arrangement. I like the idea in this photo of arranging bales of straw for your guests to sit on, if you add cushions and patchwork quilts the wedding ceremony can look very colorful and pretty.

Remember that flower arches, ivory climbing up a tree or original flower pots here and there, will make the garden a really interesting place that your guests will never forget. Just let your imagination fly ! Nature and small decoration details will make all the rest !
