Named Pantone’s colour of the year 2017, Greenery is the hottest wedding shade right now…
Influencing wedding colour schemes year on year, Pantone named the fresh shade ‘Greenery’ as their hot pick at the start of 2017. Glorious green details have since exploded in the world of weddings, along with an influx of beautiful leafy foliage being used to create gorgeous natural decor.
If you want to join the Greenery trend, check out a few of our favourite ideas below…
Your bridesmaid dresses are a great place to start when it comes to injecting a little green into your day! Whether you choose pretty pastel shades for spring, vibrant tones for summer or darker hues for Autumn/Winter, green is a great choice for an alternative bridesmaid look.
When it comes to your bouquet and floral displays, it’s all about foliage for 2017 and beyond. Forget pricey, traditional blooms, and pack your arrangements with plenty of gorgeous leafy stems. These are not only bang on trend, but should be kinder on the budget than some of the more expensive wedding flowers.
Again, foliage is proving extremely popular when it comes to dressing your venue, with bold displays adorning tables, wedding cake and hanging from ceilings. Louise and Sam’s gorgeous outdoor wedding has plenty of pretty details to inspire you, from a stunning archway to beautiful table decor.
Succulents are another huge trend we’re loving this year. Place in little pots on your tables or lining the aisle, to add to the outdoors-in feel. These would make lovely little favours too!
Add a pop of colour to your bridal look with fashion-led accessories such as these gorgeous mint green heels from Rachel Simpson! Shoes are great way to sneak a little colour into your style and are especially fabulous if you’re wearing a short wedding dress. A colourful bridal sash is another fab idea for creating a versatile look that can be changed from day to night.
If you’re feeling brave and want to stray away from an all-ivory gown, now’s the time to do it! There are plenty of designers now embracing the current floral trend, with pretty hints of green adorning their gowns. Check out the stunning detail on this Claire Pettibone gown below – swoon!
