Purple lilac flowers


Your choice of purple lilac flowers could be growing lilacs from the lilac garden or it could be that you are going to choose more typical cut lilacs such as lilac colored roses. When you have decided on lilac flower girl dresses or lilac bridesmaid dresses for your wedding party, you will want to see lilac photos to make the best choice.

If you are planning on having purple lilac flowers in your wedding bouquet, you are most likely planning on using lilac colored roses. These are the most widely available lilac wedding flower. They can either be used alone to make a bridal bouquet of purple lilac flowers or combined with other colors of roses or green foliage in your wedding bouquet.

Cut lilacs

Cut lilacs from lilac shrubs are not typically used as wedding flowers. If you are growing lilacs though, they would be great in a vase as a purple flower centerpiece idea or as a flower decoration for your church or reception venue.


Lilac bridesmaid dresses

When you have purple wedding flowers, then lilac bridesmaid dresses are a great choice. You will want to choose a dark purple flower such as rose, freesia or sweet pea to show well against the lilac dress. Another option if you have lilac bridesmaid dresses would be to go for white wedding flowers with dark green foliage.

Lilac flower girl dresses

If your bridesmaids are wearing lilac, you are probably looking for lilac flower girl dresses too. Choices for dress color for flower girls, particularly those under five years old can be limited. You will find a much wider choice in white and these flower girl dresses are often cheaper dresses too! All you need to do then is have your seamstress sew a sash or waistband on the dress in lilac to match. You can usually get extra fabric when you buy your bridesmaid dresses.

If you want to leave the dress alone, then use your lilac wedding flowers to give a splash. Your florist can make a garland for your flower girls hair. Another option is to have her carry a cute lilac pomander of flowers or a kissing ball.
