Inherently sweet and feminine, the color and scent of Lavender in a wedding is redolent of romance and nostalgia, softness and grace. And yet, diluted from the majestic purple, lavender remains, by this image, on of blood with royalty. Lighter in shade and deceptively fragile, lavender is the unassuming and gentler countenance of nobility. To the viewer, it is simplicity and refinement, town and country, and poise and culture, all in one glance.
Complemented with the natural hues of mauve, brown or yellow, the color lavender brings a light and casual yet always sophisticated impression to every affair.
"While purple is the color of royalty, lavender is the color of femininity. It's a grown-up pink." - Jacci Howard Bear
Lavender, after all, is the gentle cousin of majestic purple, that color which in ancient times was so difficult to obtain and so expensive to produce that it was reserved for royalty.
