Lavender reminds me of the South of France–full-on springtime bliss that’s somehow still coy and coquettish. It’s heaven with which to take a bath, and it makes your underthings smell lovely.
Why not incorporate this rustic, yet chic element into your spring or summer wedding? It brings an organic touch that smells lovely. Feminine, yet versatile.
Best of all, you’re not restricted to just giving away little sachets at the end of the night. You can incorporate elements of lavender into nearly every aspect of your big day, from circling the cake with olive leaves and lavender springs, pinning on the handsome groomsmen as boutonnieres, adding a carefree touch to your bouquets, and so many other uses.
I’m fond of the lavender-embellished croquem-bouche, for a French-inspired wedding, or for those who simply eschew the tradition of fondant-plastered layer cake. But who says you can’t have both? It’s your day, after all.1
