This flower, with its gorgeous purple hue, is actually an herb in the mint family and has a cool, relaxing scent. Lavender has been one of the most popular medicinal herbs since ancient times, used to help ease headaches, nervousness (not a bad thing to have under your nose as you walk down the aisle!), and even indigestion according to Penelope Ody, professional medical herbalist and author of The Complete Medicinal Herbal (a beautiful book that you should definitely check out). It also makes for an impeccably stunning wedding flower. A bouquet made entirely of lavender has at once that rustic charm, and French elegance that would go so well with a vintage lace gown. Also use it for an aromatic place setting, cake decoration, hair wreath, centerpiece, or make lavender sachets for your guests to take home with them. I could go on about this flower for a very long time, but I’ll let you take a look at some wonderful ideas below.
