The Prettiest Lilac Bridesmaid Dresses from Watters

Romantic and a little bit mysterious is what I think about lavender. So, what do you wear if you're a bridesmaid in a wedding with a lilac color palette. I'm thinking a-line, strapless, and duchess satin! These lovely dresses from Watters are quite elegant indeed. You can even match them up with some very nice shoes in silver. My faves here are:

Strapless A-line gown in duchess satin

Duchess satin with an empire waist

A two-piece dress with a pretty ribbon

Lilac Weddings Here We Come

After going through my pink wedding blog posts, I realized that lilac would be the next logical color to highlight. It's such a underused color nowadays in weddings considering that you can match it up in many ways such as lilac and ivory, lilac and chocolate brown, or even lilac and green. Pink and lilac is also quite beautiful as is blue and lavender. So, try lilac with these pretty ideas I found on the web. Check these sites out:

Wedding cake in ivory with lilac roses Sugarlicious in UK - it's white chocolate tinged in ivory. Gorgeous cake!

Stamps from zazzle.com - they're the first thing that people see

Lovely bouquet from marthastewart.com - you'll see sweet peas in creamy whites, including lamb's ear, oregano blossoms, and lisianthus. Love the ribbons, here!
