We love lavender so much, that we actually created a Lovely Lavender collection! Its light tone is the perfect color for spring.

To us, mauve feels ultra sophisticated. It’s muted, chic, and works year-round to create a romantic atmosphere.

On the darker side, plum is the perfect shade of purple for an evening, fall, or winter wedding. It’s rich tone pairs wonderfully with the cooler weather.
