If you’ve been pondering wedding themes and find yourself pining images of ceremonies set in nature, this wedding color palette just might be the one for you. With shades of green, plus a hint of gold, this gorgeous color scheme just might inspire your entire wedding-day look.
A Naturally Beautiful Invitation
Your guests’ first impression of your wedding day theme begins when your invitation is slipped from the envelope. Setting the tone for a nature-themed wedding – inspired by pine-tree forest and moody skies – starts with our affordable In the Pines Wedding Invitation. We’re getting mountain vibes from the watercolor illustration. Now, let your invite inspire your whole look…
Wedding Awash in Green and Gold
Creating a wedding-day look that features different shades of green is going to take some careful planning. If you simply throw together monochromatic shades of greens, you may end up with a wedding that looks like it was inspired by St. Patrick’s Day, complete with leprechaun bridesmaids.
Gorgeous Dark Green
You can call it hunter green or just plain dark green, but we like to call it evergreen! This shade of green is dark, rich and totally trending. Use evergreen as your main wedding color. The easiest and cheapest way to do this is to hold your wedding in the great outdoors. Just imagine saying your vows with a backdrop of towering pine trees behind you. Swoon…
Other ways to use dark green in your wedding:
- Bridesmaids: Dress your gals in long flowing evergreen dresses. Extra points if you choose velvet (anyone else obsessed lately?!)
- The Guys: Be subtle. Add a dark green pocket square to the guys’ suits. Matching socks would make for a great photo opp too.
- Reception: Utilize fresh greenery to create gorgeous centerpieces that are cheap too. Favorite types dark greens include leatherleaf and cocculus.
Add Some Wedding Blues
Are you thinking – “wait, blue?!” Yes, blue! The other two shades of green – jade and mist – featured in this palette have the same blue undertones that are so often found in nature. Use them sparingly; a little goes a long way here and it’s all about styling the girls:
- Jewelry: Gift your bridesmaid, and yourself, jade-colored earrings.
- Nails: Its manicure time! Paint your nails a shade of mist.
- Bouquet: Don’t use dark green in your bridesmaid’s bouquets; they’ll just get lost against their dresses. Instead, create bouquets of cream roses and blue-green greenery and foliage. Our top picks are dusty miller and brunia berries.
The Golden Touch
Finally – let’s add some sparkle! Every wedding needs it (yes, even nature-themed weddings!) and gold pairs wonderfully with green hues.
- Hair: Tuck a vintage-inspired gold hair-pin into your up-do.
- Napkins: Create chic and cheap gold foil napkins for your bar.
- Shoes: Gold shoes are always a good idea, right?
- Candles: Place votive candles in pretty gold vessels for instant romance.
Best wishes, brides and grooms! xoxo
