How to Use Pantone’s Color of the Year at Your Wedding

Greenery can play a beautiful role in your wedding flowers and much more!

If you have any interest in fashion, décor, or have spent much time perusing Pinterest or wedding magazines this year, then you probably already know that the Pantone Color of the Year for 2017 is Greenery, a fun shade of bright green. And while not every trending color makes sense as a key tone for wedding day styling, Greenery is certainly one that can take a starring role. So if you are still trying to plan your fall or winter wedding colors, we’d love to make a case for Greenery. Mostly because not only is it rich and timely, it’s truly timeless!

Wonderful Ways to Wear Green

While green might initially seem like a tough color to incorporate into wedding details, it’s actually a surprisingly simple shade to pair with others, in large part because of its prominent role in nature. Just think about the luscious woodland backdrop of some of your favorite fairytales, or maybe even your own engagement photos. Chances are, green is key!

So picture your bridesmaids wearing dresses in this beautiful shade, or even floral gowns that mix many of your favorite shades with gorgeous green leaves. Groomsmen can look dapper in navy or grey suits complimented with festive green ties. Mixing shades of green is also a good choice, since deeper emerald (or Treetop, on the Pantone scale) is a nearly universally-flattering jewel tone perfect for autumn and winter weddings.

Green Makes for Great Décor, Too

Greenery can be a gorgeous and on-trend shade for table linens, as well as invitation suites. It can also make for eye-catching wedding cakes (or cupcakes, for that matter).

Perhaps most importantly, though, this shade makes great inspiration when it comes to floral arrangements. Rather than relying solely on luxe and expensive blooms, why not ask the florist to use literal greenery liberally, when creating your centerpieces and bouquets? Not only can this help create natural-looking combinations, but it’s also a way to stretch your floral budget. Actual succulents and even herbs and vegetables can be used to add pops of green and whimsy, as well!
