Green is one of our favourite wedding colours, combining so beautifully with other shades and always working beautifully with nature. Today we’re singing the praises of the pistachio green wedding theme.
Bang on trend, this delicate, flattering shade is a little paler than mint but more vibrant than sage green. It looks stunning ‘au naturel’ with white, glamorous with silver or gold and pretty as a picture with pastel shades of pink, peach or lilac. We hope these green wedding ideas will inspire.
Setting the Scene
When you’ve decided on your colour, you can start working it in to the décor. Start with stationery and move through to your table designs and floral decorations. Be sure to carry a swatch of fabric with you at all times, it’s amazing how many different shades there are of the same colour and you need to stick to yours as much as you can.
Start the process by introducing the colour to your stationery.

When it comes to fashion, green is a lovely colour choice for bridesmaids, particularly if you will be spending time outside. You might also adopt the shade in your accessories while your groom can add colour through his tie, waistcoat and buttonhole.
These different shades of green include pistachio, each shade suiting the skin tone of the bridesmaid.

While your bridesmaids might wear pistachio, you can use it as an accent colour. Introduce the shade to your shoes and flowers while still wearing a white or ivory gown.

Treats and Favours
Pistachio is one colour that’s easy to introduce in to your food! Just be sure to check whether any of your guests have nut allergies before going pistachio crazy.
These pistachio, cardamom and strawberry cheesecakes would make a pretty summer dessert.
