20 Beautiful Ways to Add a Pop of Green to Your Wedding
Green is the color of new life, and isn't that what you and your future husband or wife are setting out to build together? Marriage is all about change and fresh beginnings, so why not represent that with your wedding's color palette? Plus, beyond the symbolism, green comes in many gorgeous shades. And, because it's such an organic color, it's versatile, too—you can treat it like a neutral if you wish. We love green for so many reasons, and we're here to show you exactly why. We've rounded up a list of some of the top green wedding ideas for you to borrow for your big day.
Green's so great because it fits into basically any wedding theme. Throwing a formal bash? No problem—green and white is a classic wedding color combination. Want something a bit more modern? Pair it with bright and unexpected hues or use it in creative ways. That might mean decorating with greenery instead of traditional flowers. Or, it could mean serving a green wedding cake—how unique is that? Take this amazing dessert by Sinfully Sweet, which featured a totally trendy geode-inspired design in stunning emerald and light green shades.
Whether you're a classic or contemporary couple, there's a way to accent (or completely fill) your event with green wedding details. Here, you'll find a whole range of beautiful ideas for using every hue in this color family. From sage to mint to lime, we've featured all of the prettiest shades. Don't blame us if your guests turn green with envy!
