Green is not only the color of springtime, it is also Pantone’s Color of the Year! With greenery popping up everywhere in design and wedding trends, it’s the must have wedding color this year. Today were sharing 9 ideas for a Pantone Color of the Year greenery inspired wedding.
Where better to host a greenery inspired wedding than at a botanical center or in a greenhouse? Greenhouse weddings are growing in popularity – and we can see why. A wedding surrounded by gorgeous greenery and budding blooms is the perfect place to celebrate your new lives together.
Finding a greenhouse that will let you host reception may be a bit of a task, so if you’re looking for alternatives check into your local botanical center as your reception venue. Or you could contact a greenhouse about hosting a small ceremony at their location and host your greenery inspired wedding reception at a different location – one that you can fill with plants to make it feel like a greenhouse.
Transform yourself into a green goddess on your wedding day with some gorgeous details that will make your groom’s jaw drop when he sees you for the first time.
To get the look, add a little green in unexpected places. Instead of a floral crown or hairpiece, have your stylist incorporate greenery into your updo. A little bit of fern tucked into your side-swept hair will go a long way and is a subtle way to incorporate the greenery trend into your day-of look.
Instead of a traditional bouquet of big blooms, opt for some neutral toned florals like anemones and a big sweeping bouquet of greenery to carry down the aisle. This will help incorporate your theme into your wedding look, and it doubles as a gorgeous floral piece on your head table during the reception.
Another way to add some green to your wedding attire is through jewelry. Find a few vintage green pieces of jewelry to wear on the big day – family heirlooms would be even more meaningful! A pretty pair of emerald earrings or a gorgeous jade ring will help complete your look.
One of the most wonderful parts of this wedding is the use of greenery in your bouquets and centerpieces instead of large floral centerpieces.
A few trendy greens to try: seeded eucalyptus, fern, magnolia leaves, cedar, boxwood, juniper, rosemary and silver dollar eucalyptus. Mix and match these plants in your centerpieces and bouquets to create a lovely greenery inspired look for your wedding.
As with your bouquet, choose a few neutral florals to accompany the green in your centerpieces, or choose to lay garlands of greenery down on your tables and pair it with gold candlestick holders and tall white tapers.
Instead of bubbles or confetti, have your guests send you off with a different kind of toss – give each guest some little green leaves to throw instead! Choose a leaf with a lovely aroma, like sage, and not only will you have lovely pictures from your grand exit, it will smell wonderful as well.
There are so many ways to make the Pantone Color of the Year trend work for your wedding. Mix and match different leaves and plants to design a simple and sophisticated day and the wedding of your dreams.
