I thought about using lavender for my bouquet. Something like this:
I do love the idea but it doesn't really go with our color scheme and not quite what I'm envisioning for my bouquet. It would smell so lovely though...
I found this picture from Oncewed and was head-over-heels for the look, especially when arranged in the yellow gravy boat. So simple yet perfect.
Then I found these two pictures and suddenly, a way to incorporate lavender into our wedding became clear.
I've decided to change my favor idea a bit and instead of putting dried flowers in little vases at the tables, I want to make little lavender bundles and place them next to the menu card at each setting. The mini-lavender bouquets will each have a little tag on them with our wedding date (6/2010) on it and a quote on the other side.
I hope our guests take the lavender bunches home and think of our (hopefully) fun, beautiful wedding whenever they smell them.
What do you think? Do you like lavender? Should I do something else for favors in addition to this?
