Lilacs are a popular choice for weddings because of their delicate, fragrant blooms and the range of colors they come in, from deep purple to soft lavender to pure white. Purple and white lilacs are especially versatile, as they can be incorporated into a variety of wedding color schemes.

To create a romantic and dreamy atmosphere for your outdoor wedding ceremony, consider using purple and white lilacs as part of your floral decorations. Use clusters of white lilacs to line the aisle, adding a touch of elegance and sophistication. For the altar, create a stunning arrangement of purple and white lilacs mixed with other complementary flowers, such as roses or peonies.

In addition to using lilacs as part of your ceremony decorations, you can also incorporate them into your bouquet and boutonnieres. A bouquet of white lilacs tied with a purple ribbon is a simple yet beautiful choice for the bride, while the groom and groomsmen can wear boutonnieres of purple lilacs.  Even adding them to your cake design is simply divine!

Another idea is to use purple and white lilacs as part of your reception decorations. Create centerpieces for the tables using tall vases filled with a mixture of purple and white lilacs, and scatter smaller arrangements of the same flowers around the room for a cohesive look.
