Top Spring Wedding Color – Sweet Lilac Wedding Inspiration

Let’s bid adiós to Ultra Violet, and make way for one of the hottest Pantone colors of the 2019 nuptial season – Sweet Lilac!  We know, we know, it isn’t Living Coral, the actual Pantone Color of the year 2019 but this lavender toned pink is going to be the hottest wedding color of the year.

Unlike the traditional pink used for pastel-themed weddings or deep rose for a bohemian-vintage wedding, Sweet Lilac is a refreshing lavender take on the ballerina tone we are all so used to seeing in wedding palettes.  The subtle violet undertones in this rosy hue make it a transitional hue that adds warmth or coolness to a palette, creating a refreshing and cheerful combination with a number of other trending colors.  Sweet Lilac is a fresh addition to weddings of 2019. Keep reading to take inspirations from Sweet Lilac-tinted wedding elements, this color is sure to be what your clients are looking for in 2019!

Let’s start with the design elements where Sweet Lilac can make the most impactful statement in your wedding design, the décor!  Sweet Lilac is soft enough to create a beautiful base for your design.  Punchy additions like Pepper Stem Green or Living Coral are great hues to incorporate in smaller proportions.

We love a white dress, so we don’t suggest a Sweet Lilac wedding dress, but the bouquet is a delightful place to incorporate this cheerful color.  There are so many pink and lavender flowers of different hues, it won’t be hard to find the right one as close to Sweet Lilac as possible. This also goes for the groom too. Use a single- or multiple-flower boutonniere for the suit lapel. Sweet lilac shoes for the bride is another way to keep this soft color a trending theme thoughout the entire design.

Sweet Lilac as an Accent Color

If going all pink isn’t your style, then Sweet Lilac may be better used as an accent to your color palette. This summer pink doesn’t fade easily into the background, so it’s a great contrast to a rain blue or fresh green.
