Lavender: A Wedding Theme Color that just never goes out of Style!

Dizzy Daisies Invitation
A bright white invitation is layered
on top of a lavender backer.
A contemporary daisy
design is featured.
While the color purple has long been symbolized as the color of royalty, it's lighter counterpart lavender, symbolizes femininity. Since lavender is the off-spring of the deeper purple, it translates the royalty, with a romantic and nostalgic twist...without the mystery of the deeper shade. Because of this, it's no wonder that lavender continues to be a favorite wedding color that just never goes out of style.

When selecting your invitation for your "lavender" affair, a wedding, sweet sixteen, or other event, be sure to incorporate this color into your invitation as well. After all, your invitation is your guest's first impression of your event and provides a preview of your theme and what's to come.

Here is a fabulous "real-life wedding" example of how one Bride incorporated a purple, lavender and pink color palette into her big day!  "I've always been drawn to girlie colors of pinks and purples," says newly-wed Bride, Megan Starja. "When I choose the bridesmaid dress I fell in love with the orchid (lavender) color swatch and decided that would be my color and theme of our wedding day."
