We always like to keep an eye on current trends and with that in mind, we thought we’d take a look at the Pantone ‘Colour of the Year 2017’ and show how these beautiful green wedding ideas can be incorporated in to your day.

It seems the hot shade of the moment is ‘Greenery’, a fresh, zesty hue of yellow-green that inspires thoughts of spring and the lush abundance of nature. It’s a wonderful choice for a wedding, bringing the outside in and enveloping your celebration in a positive, refreshing, beautiful vibe. Let’s take a look at some exquisite green wedding ideas.

We can’t begin without highlighting the chosen colour. Here we have ‘Greenery’ in all its glory, and combined with some well-co-ordinated shades should you decide to expand your colour palette.

Nature lends a helpful hand with this colour scheme, offering us an abundance of foliage and flowers in the perfect shade. Speak to your florist about carrying a bouquet of greenery. It’s a stunning accessory to a white wedding dress.

Green can be a tricky colour when it comes to fashion. If you choose it as a bridesmaid colour, consider using different shades to suit each of your friends.

Carry the botanical theme through to your décor with elaborate chair decorations. This looks striking on the back of a neutral chair. Save money by decorating alternate chairs, or just those on the top table.

This table setting is a little more formal, adding a hint of gold to the pretty green and white. Lovely wooden tables don’t always need to be covered with linen.

For the purists, a pristine white tablecloth highlights all that is beautiful about green foliage and white flowers. A sprig of rosemary makes a perfect napkin decoration.

As for place settings, what suits this theme more perfectly than a simple hand-written leaf!

Simple greenery can also be used on a white stacked cake. Textured icing offers a more natural, less formal look.
