Throwing the Perfect Summer Soiree

When planning the perfect summer soiree, be inspired by the luxe aroma of lavender in the hot summer air. Lavender makes any outdoor wedding extravagant!

When I imagine an outdoor wedding on a picturesque summer day, I envision florals, fauna, and all things nature. Whereas green grass and blue skies come to mind, I immediately thought of lavender and its beautiful hue. Lavender can be a perfect addition to any wedding. Its stunning color pairs with so many color palettes, and its signature smell is a sign of decadence. To add to its luxurious nature, the countrysides of Southern France are known for their sprawling lavender fields, adding a sense of French romance that we love.

Here’s our tips to looking lovely in lavender:

1. Take Advantage: Lavender is known for its use in cooking and baking, as well as its amazing aroma. Take advantage of lavender’s versatility. Instead of a traditional rice toss, have your guests shower you and your new husband in lavender! You can also incorporate lavender into your sweet table, like those gorgeous macaroons pictured in the inspiration board.

2. Try a Lavender Ombre: Lavender works well in so many color palettes. Mix some darker or lighter purples or blues into your wedding, like the bridesmaid dresses shown in the inspiration board. A darker hue can be the perfect compliment for this magnificent light purple.

3. Be Subtle: Too much of anything can be a negative, so make sure not to go overboard. Keeping elements of your wedding neutral will balance out the striking colors.

Find your inspiration in nature. Throw an amazing summer soiree by incorporating lavender into your wedding!
