How do you get that certain wedding look? The one that’s soft, romantic, a little vintage and so elegant? Here’s how: start with an ecru background, go with gray for a neutral and then go wild with dusty lilac. It’s a wedding color combination that has it all!

Be our guest
There are lots of options for making your style known with your wedding invitation. You can choose thick ecru paper. You can choose gray or lilac design and wording- like the Country Vines Featherpress Invitation shown. Or you could be a little bolder and send out your news on bright lilac wedding invitations.

Lilacs and lavender
If you’re getting married in the spring, make sure to time your event to when the lilacs are blooming. Bring the flowers into your day in bunches – accenting bouquets and making big, garden arrangements that smell fantastic. If your wedding is later in the year, lavender in bouquets and accenting boutonnieres.

Color Crush: Lilac, Grey and Ecru

Keep it soft
Think of the dusty lavender as your soft “pop” of color against the neutral gray and ecru. Think ">gray suits with creamy shirts and light purple flower boutonnieres. Maybe add in lilac ties to be sweet. Your bridesmaid dresses can be ecru, lilac purple or gray – whatever suits your day! Just make sure to have enough light purple accents as focal points. It goes the other way around, too – if your dresses, men’s ties and vest, and flowers are lilac, you’ll want to have plenty of ecru and gray wedding decorations to make the color stand out.

Signature touches
Such a soft and delicate wedding color palette makes your personal touches the highlight of your day. How about an ecru banner declaring “Here Comes the Bride!” carried by a pair of adorable children dressed all in gray? Or make up a signature drink with lavender syrup and sparkling champagne – a toast to your fabulous style!
