Lavender + Purple Wedding

I know lavender gets a bad rap as a wedding color; it's time to rethink that, ladies.  To me, lavender reminds me of our trip to the South of France, where the summer sun lapped at rows upon rows of fragrant lavender growing in the fields.  Mix lavender with some rich purple hues, against a clean white backdrop. Add sparkle with some luminous gemstone earrings, pretty flowered cupcakes, and a soft grey and lilac table decor, and you're playing a whole new game.
