Happy St. Patrick's Day! Whether you're planning a wedding around March 17th of next year or you love the color green and want to include it in your décor, there are a number of ways to implement the hue in your pre-wedding paper goods, ceremony décor, and reception details. 

Though greenery is prevalent in nature and therefore seen at countless outdoor ceremonies and receptions by way of freshly manicured lawns, trees, and hedges, incorporating lime green or emerald green into the actual color scheme of your big day can make quite the impact. The darker shade works well for colder-weather celebrations or festive Christmastime events; however, lighter and brighter hues blended with springtime florals and soft-hued linens and drapery, the color can be a romantic addition to a spring or summer wedding as well.

Take a look at 27 ways to incorporate a dark green color palette into your wedding day below. For more inspiration from these real weddings, click your favorite photo to see the entire celebration!
