20 Ways to Use Lavender in Your Wedding

The Texas Hill Country is home to a lot of things and did you know that lavender farms are one of them?

We’ve found some great ways that you can use lavender in your wedding celebration and we know you’ll enjoy the inspiration.  Of course we’re not just talking about the flower, but mostly the flower.  We did pop in a little color inspiration just for fun.

Lavender is such a dainty and beautiful flower and it’s easy to incorporate into many design styles.  It’s also got enough color to stand on its own and lend a nice fresh scent in its fresh or dried state.  You can tuck lavender sprigs almost anywhere to add a little pop of color to your decor.

Use Lavender for Your Wedding Photos

Using a lavender field as your backdrop for wedding photo’s is a beautiful accent that lends a pinkish tone to your pictures.  Texas lavender fields may not be as thick and lush as the ones that you’re used to seeing in photo’s, so if you’re considering this as an option be sure to go visit the fields in advance.  Our unique weather means that a lavender field can have several stages of growth all at the same time.

Lavender is also a color that will work in any season.  It pairs well with a blush pink for spring or a deep purple for fall.  Your imagination is the only thing standing between you and all the lavender for your wedding decor.

Regardless of how you choose to use lavender in your ceremony or reception, we’re sure that these photo’s will give you some great ideas.

Lavender Wedding Inspiration for the Groom

Lavender can stand on its own for a boutonniere or it mixes nicely with many other colors.  Sage greens and pinks or whites will keep those muted tones.  Or you can add a hot pink and make a bold statement.  We love the touch of thistle on these button holes.  It gives them just a bit of a graphic punch.

In a bouquet, lavender is a great accent flower.  It has a nice light touch to the sprigs and the color softens up the formality of the roses.  We think it looks fantastic with that dark plum color especially.
