Lilac Wedding Palette, So Romantic for Spring 2021
We are loving a lilac aesthetic lately. To us, this sun-washed light purple hue totally delivers dreamy, romantic vibes. And we think this color paired with other soft pastels is a palette perfectly suited for spring weddings in 2021.
And, if you decide on this stunning soft violet color for your day we also highly encourage you to incorporate lilac flowers. Because, lilacs are not only gorgeous but are also fragrant, edible, and medicinal. In addition, lilacs symbolize love. So lilacs are absolutely perfect for a day celebrating that very subject!
If you are sold on using lovely lilac (and lilacs) for your wedding day, we invite you to read on for lots of inspiration. We’ve sourced loads of lilac-inspired ideas from flowers and decor to refreshments and favors.

“The spring is fresh and fearless
And every leaf is new,
The world is brimmed with moonlight,
The lilac brimmed with dew.
Here in the moving shadows
I catch my breath and sing –
My heart is fresh and fearless
And over-brimmed with spring.”
