Pastels are always popular wedding colours, but this year sees the rise of pastel green. As a wedding dress colour, it’s a great choice, particularly for brides who want to stick with pastels but move away from the more traditional blues and pinks. Suited to both contemporary and traditional weddings, it’s a colour that looks lovely in the great outdoors, and equally glamorous in a sleek, modern setting.
So, if you want to be a little quirky and original… prepare to be inspired by these dreamy dresses in pastel green. Just because you’re being brave with colour, doesn’t mean you have to be brave with style. This strapless ballgown is every inch the princess dress. The softest shade of green offers just a hint of colour, and the white applique means it will suit a bouquet of the same colour.

Sticking with tradition but adding glamour to the mix, this breathtaking gown is a real show stopper. This isn’t the thing for a summer marquee wedding! It requires an equally glamorous venue, formal attire and the most chic bouquet.

For summer boho style, this backless gown with Art Deco style is dreamy. The pastel green suits the garden setting, and is given a lift with the addition of brightly coloured flowers in the bouquet. Bridesmaids might opt for a similar colour or wear the shade of soft ivory featured in the flowers.

For city style, simplicity is key. This shade of green suits the bride’s skintone perfectly, and she has chosen a bouquet that includes ivory and an equally delicate hue of blush pink. Elegant earrings complete the look without adding fuss.

This Edwardian style dress makes us think of secret gardens and romantic trysts! Choose your setting wisely and carry a bouquet of hand-picked blooms. Make sure your groom doesn’t overpower the dress by wearing a heavy suit. His outfit should include a splash of the same green – perhaps in his tie or buttonhole.

A slightly ‘mintier’ shade of pastel green leads us to the 1950s. Be cool and quirky in a knee-length dress with sleeves, complemented by bold make up and fabulous dancing shoes.

For a summer version of the fifties style, we love this organza tea-length dress. A pretty pink flower at the waist adds another pastel dimension.

If you’re really want to be different, choose full on florals - magnificent, theatrical and with pastel green as your base. Needless to say, you probably don’t need to accessorise with a bouquet!
