Move over pretty pinks, lilac is fast becomming the top wedding day colour scheme for 2021. According to our Pinterest, 'wedding theme' remains the number one most searched for term, with searches for 'weddings by colour' up 6.4%. 

Becca Stern, co-founder of furniture company Mustard Made, said: "Lilac is fresh and sophisticated; it brings a sense of tranquility to any space, while still providing a fun pop of colour. Blush has been a huge colour trend, and lilac is the next evolution within our powdery, pastel palette. With under-tones of blue it delivers the perfect cooler-toned option to brighten up your home or office as we move into the cooler months.”

Pair lilac with neutral blush pink, soft sage green or dark bold navy. 

From fashion to table settings, here's how to add lilac to your wedding day:
