Emerald Green Wedding. Take a color and run with it! That's the premise behind this incredibly rich, gorgeous styled shoot. Many used to think that emeralds preserved love, so why not incorporate this jewel tone into a wedding? You don't have to stick to just one shade either. You can use complimentary hues to create a fluid design palette. Since flowers naturally display shades of green, start with your floral arrangements.
Here, this groom decided on a boutonniere with a white flower and green accents.
The bride used the same floral motif and also, incorporated hints of blue. And to add a touch of glamour, the stems were wrapped with gold and fastened with a stately emerald jewel.
Wedding fashion these days is all about infusing personality and adding bold colors is a great way to achieve this look and add dimension Here, the bride can be seen wearing classic V-neck and boat-neck lace gowns and also, a statement necklace in a deep green color. The groom, wearing a timeless black suit, added a green tie for added personality. It's a simple touch of color that makes a big splash.
The venue can also add lots of inspiration. Whether you're in a library, as seen here, or in a lush, floral garden, the greens will always tie in the surrounding environment. Use the accompanying furniture and amenities as your playbook for color-coordination. Rent various throw pillows and table linens in coordinating colors.
Pay special attention to small details that allow you to be playful with the color scheme, as well, just like the menu cards featured here with small green and deep blue bowties or the favors wrapped in green and gold foil. By adding small touches, instead of large overwhelming designs, it can still look soft and elegant without overpowering the space.
And for an added touch of simple sweetness, why not give each guest a small, personal wedding cake in the same emerald green color? Everyone gets a small taste of sugar, as well as your favorite color.
Whichever color you love-green, blue, purple, silver with red polka dots -as long as you carry the theme throughout the day, from small detail to detail, you can achieve a look that will make your guests forget the color white and remember every shade of your personality.
