Lilac Bridesmaid Dress and Lilac Wedding Inspiration
This time of year I find I get a little homesick for New England, and I think about all the flowers that are just starting to bloom in early summer. Last week, was looking at my niece’s prom pictures, and remembering how my own prom photos were always taken in front of the lilac bush at our house–that very day I saw this great Lilac Wedding inspiration on Fly Away Bride, that made me miss lilacs even more!

Even though I’m now allergic (whaa, whaa what a downer I am!) I still love the idea of lilac, the hues that can range from white, to pink to a deeper grape purple, and just remembering how nice it was to smell that light scent and to know summer would soon be here. My own home-town lilacs were more pink, like the color scheme above. If you have your allergies more in check than I do, maybe you’re considering a lilac wedding!
If you are (or even if you’re going with another flower, but want the lilac colored details) here’s an idea for a bridesmaid dress.
Lilac Dress and Accessories
I put this Dessy dress ( the color is called Rosebud, but it has a lilac tinge to me!) with monochromatic pink lilac accessories, but I really love the pink coral tulips and white ranunculus in that bouquet, and how it looks with the purple! Wouldn’t white, coral, and lilac be pretty wedding colors and great with with the dress? You could try white accessories and coral lipstick, or even some pink coral necklaces ( I held off on showing one because I’ve been showing so much coral around here lately!)
Let me know in the comments, do lilacs play into your spring time and summer memories, too?
