Lilac Colour Inspiration

Lilac Wedding

Certain flowers define a season and lilac certainly tells you that Spring has arrived. When we think of what Spring encapsulates, we often think of the beautiful fronds of purple flowers hanging down from branches. So why not consider making lilac the main colour in your wedding theme? Lilac is a pink-tinged light purple colour that is both flattering and uplifting, making it the perfect choice for a Spring wedding.

Spring may just be the ideal time of the year to consider getting married. As the flowers begin to come into bloom, there is inspiration all around for lilac wedding theme ideas. Lilac itself has lots of positive connotations and it actually means the joy of youth. When we think of lilac, it makes you think of butterflies fluttering around the flowering buddleia or garlands of lilac-coloured wisteria covering a cottage. All these feelings and ideas have been woven into our pretty lilac stationery. You can use your wedding invitations as a key part of your lilac wedding theme ideas. Right from the moment the invites are sent to the wedding itself, this theme can be established and reinforced in every part of your big day.


Lilac can also be incorporated as part of a vintage theme; this colour lends itself nicely to a wedding with vintage crockery and delicate floral decoration. You can create the prettiest looking table arrangements and brighten up conventional crockery. You could even fill mugs or silver buckets with lilac coloured flowers as a quirky centrepiece.

There are so many flowers that you can work into this theme. Old fashioned roses or sweet peas in lilac and dusky pink shades would be perfect to decorate the guests’ tables. Likewise, skeleton leaves in shades of pink and lilac can adorn napkins. Jam jars can also be filled with candles and tied with lilac ribbons to complete the look.

If you are looking for ways to brighten up an outfit, lilac can work really well with white, cream and pastel-coloured outfits. It also looks amazing with a variety of textures such as lace. Alternatively, you can add a one-of-a-kind touch to the groom’s suit, by using a lilac-coloured silk handkerchief. Cotton bridesmaid dresses can be transformed with a lilac ribbon and for pageboys, their cotton shirts can be paired with lilac linen shorts, creating a light and ethereal combination.

Lilac is a colour that is feminine and floral. There’s no denying that lilac wedding theme ideas can be used to brighten up any venue or outfit. It’s a wedding colour that never seems to go out of trend and continues to be loved by brides.
