// Lavender //
This is one of my favourite colours, and I think it works really well in a wedding colour palette. It is especially beautiful for a summer wedding as Lavender is in season from May to August. It is a beautiful calming colour, and can be cool or warm, depending on what you pair it with. My advice for using lavender or lilac, is to mix it with other shades of purple, almost creating a bit of an ombre effect, or pair it with grey, to take off the ‘sickly sweet’ edge. It also looks absolutely heavenly with a deep forest green, and is perfect for a rustic, countryside, outdoorsy feel, if that is what you’re going for.
