African Violet, one of the Pantone colours of 2013 – otherwise known as lilac – is a perennially popular colour choice for weddings.
Lilac is popular teamed up with pink and I particularly love it with deeper purple and all shades of blue.
But today I’ve created a lilac wedding inspiration board showing lilac with crisp white – and also with beige. As an icy colour, lilac looks immaculate with white. And I love the way the earthy texture of beige burlap contrasts with cool lilac, warming and softening the overall effect.
