You Might Change Your Mind About Millennial Pink Once You See How Well Lavender Works As A Wedding Theme

I keep a strong eye out for wedding trends and something that's going to be big may be the color lavender.

Lavender looks set to consider over from millennial pink in 2018 and beyond. Why this shade?

It's a soft pastel which has depth

It's additionally a flavor - think lavender flavored macarons, cakes, feeltimes dresses ...you may also get lavender flavored teas

It's a fragrance

It's a flower (almost a herb actually) that appears wonderful interspersed into wedding bouquets (and smells romantic too).

It's this type of versatile shade - technology-not only as a base color after which introduce deeper mauves, purples, and lilacs as visual points of interest (begin to see the paper lanterns within the image above).

Lavender is extremely romantic ... without having to be sickly sweet

It's a classic

Decorate the wedding with lavender wreaths and pots of lavender and allow the scent waft right through to give your venue a soft, summer fragrance

You may use lavender to produce an essential oil you can use for massage to assuage headaches and promote sleep and relaxation. Maybe a concept for a wedding favor?

When you are looking at looking out for lavender bridesmiad gowns, then you will love the option available at Dessy (in various fabrics from lace to filmy chiffon). The shade you most likely want to go for is 'Passion' even though you could mix things up with the 'Lavender Garden' print dresses.

Here's a variety to get you thinking - sleeveless, sleeved, flower girl, or perhaps a grown-up number for any teen bridesmaid.
