We've seen our fair share of bold purple weddings and those with a soft palette of blush, gold, and ivory; however, one color that is vastly underrated when it comes to wedding themes is green. Green weddings may not be the most popular, but they can certainly be beautiful. Ideal for rustic weddings, garden ceremonies, or even outdoor-inspired ballroom celebrations, emerald décor complements a wedding in any season, with any theme.

Bright green invitations work wonderfully for tropical destination weddings, manicured hedges are perfect for chic outdoor ceremonies, and green centerpieces, linens, and glassware provide a unique element for unforgettable receptions. Since a number of green shades are prominent in nature, the hue complements a variety of other colors. Of course the shade best stands out when paired with vanilla florals and linens, but it can also blend seamlessly with your other favorite shades and wedding colors.

Whether you choose to incorporate green as a primary hue in your wedding color palette, or you decide to simply use some foliage as a décor accent, you'll love "going green" on your wedding day.
