Lavender Love

When it comes to shabby, country chic, I think lavender flowers take the (wedding) cake for reflecting that sensibility. It's not a flashy, overstated flower; it's sweet, simple and smells divine.

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?


  1. I would love that as a favor! Lavender is one of my favorite scents. One way I'm thinking of incorporating lavender in our wedding is doing Lavender Champagne, a la Martha Stewart Weddings ( I just love the sprig of lavender as a drink garnish!

  2. I LOVE lavender!
    I had it EVERYWHERE in my wedding! :)

  3. I feel this way about rosemary. :) The smell just makes me feel happy and warm. I guess lavender looks prettier, though. ;)

  4. Love the idea. The colour is perfection. Just think of how you could tie in lavender to the rest of the wedding! Eeek!

  5. I just bought same lavender but it's already drieing out,please help me!What should I do?
