Discover the best ways to include the seasonal hue.
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day and the tradition of wearing green to celebrate, we’ve decided to look back at some of our favorite ways to include the hue into your wedding décor. Depending on the shade you choose, green can evoke the natural beauty of the forest or the fresh and bright feeling that comes with spring. Greenery is even the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year, so if there was ever a time to embrace the green, that time is now.
As the trend of rustic weddings slows down, brides hoping to incorporate an organic, low-maintenance feel to their nuptials may be looking for ideas. Couples who enjoy a preppy style can take advantage of a green-based color palette as well: a medium tone makes for a crisp design on paper products and ensembles, as well as having the benefit of being less frequently used, making the aesthetic of your wedding unique.
Below are some of our favorite examples of using green throughout your nuptials, all from real weddings or styled shoots. Click each photo to see more from the event, and browse through our gallery of all things green.
