I have loved fashion and following what is happening on the runway for as long as I can remember. Once I graduated from FIT and got a job as a wedding planner, it became pretty easy to see how fashion trends make their way to the wedding world.
This season Lilac is all the rage. Pastels are always a popular choice for springtime, but lilac has emerged to be the favorite for the fashion gods and we are seeing it everywhere from suiting to jackets to accessories. These pastel shades are light, and easy to translate to weddings. And we are sure they will be on everyone’s wedding Pinterest board soon.

Incorporating lilac into weddings will be super easy! Bring in a pop of color into your bridal look by wearing a lilac hued shoe. Serve a lavender infused cocktail for your specialty drink like a lavender lemonade or lavender gin and tonic. Brighten up your tablescape with colorful arrangements – try blooming wisteria, sweet peas, hyacinth, lilacs and tulip. Don’t forget that you can bring color to your table through the linen as well. And bridesmaids in lilac, will be fabulous.
