Why should a bride consider green as her primary wedding color? Green complements all floral hues. Color planning can be as simple as looking in a flower garden for inspiration. Almost any flower has green leaves, so select any wedding flowers you like to coordinate your green wedding theme. Use those same floral colors as accents for decorations and accessories.
Bridesmaids with bright coloring can manage these green hues. From jewel tones like jade and emerald green to sporty kelly green and grass green, these shades are for the bride who wants everyone to know she loves green. The David’s Bridal collection includes kelly and jade, while Alfred Angelo offers jade, shamrock, and glass green. Mary’s Bridal also carries bright greens, including pine and emerald. For the men’s formal wear, Men’s Wearhouse offers vests and neckties in many green hues, including jade and kelly green. Select bold flowers to balance your bright green attire. Rose red, hot pink, and marigold are some color possibilities for the bouquets and altar flowers.
From Mary’s Bridal, choose teal or hunter if you prefer cool green shades. The Alfred Angelo collection includes hunter green and tealness. David’s Bridal offers holly, jade, and mermaid. For the male attendants, Men’s Wearhouse has hunter green or jade accessories in a variety of interesting textured fabrics. Cool violets, a variety of soft pinks, or forget-me-not blue are all good floral colors to use with cool greens. White flowers are another option.
Warm or earthy greens have a touch of yellow and are especially attractive on redheads. Select celadon, kiwi, pistachio, or clover from the Alfred Angelo collection. Olive, celadon, and green apple are warm greens in the Mary’s Bridal palette. From David’s Bridal, consider clover, fern, or pistachio. Men’s Wearhouse coordinates include key lime, clover, cypress, pistachio, and fern. For flowers, think of autumn colors such as bittersweet red, pumpkin, and golden yellow.
Green is an excellent color choice for indoor or outdoor weddings. A green can be found to complement any complexion or hair color. Green offers you endless options for flowers and other decorations. No wonder nature includes so much green! Let nature guide your color scheme and enjoy a beautiful wedding ceremony.
