Creating lilac weddings at Verdila has been a joy so far this year ( not forgetting other colours too of course .. so watch this space for these in later wedding flower blogs!).
These grey lilacs, pale purples and muted pinks are so popular at any time of year really although come into their own in spring and summer. Adding in colours towards lavender, soft apricot or blush can personalise your flowers and create a little extra interest.
6 lilac bouquet thoughts for planning your bouquet flowers:
1. Try to keep the foliage muted
2. Do not go too dark as the colours will disappear in the photos even if they look amazing in real life. This is because darker colours recede and need something light next to them to show them off. Photographs flatten the colours and forms so you lose the beautiful 3D effect of each petal that you can see so easily for real.
3. Try for a blend of closely related colours for a perfect lilac bouquet
4. Adding a little soft pink can warm up your bouquet. White or pale blue can also be good, bringing a touch of brightness and freshness. Red violet is a cheery addition to lilac.
5. You will know when you see the bouquet of your dreams when you are searching for inspiration (or something very close).
6. The main bridal bouquet types are a hand tied posy with natural stems or a shower or waterfall bouquet which trails downwards. Both can be small or large, compact or wild and free. You can also have a crescent or upright bouquet or something a little unusual.. just ask your florist.
And let's not forget that wedding flowers can be for four legged friends as well as those on two!
