Bridesmaid Dresses!

One of the best ways to incorporate green into your wedding day is in the bridesmaid dresses. The green bridesmaid dresses will add a nice touch of the color to your event without being too overbearing. There are so many shades to choose from too! I just love gorgeous Emerald green like the BHLDN dress above for a rich, gem-tone look. In contrast, myy friend and client Claudia had bridesmaids dresses designed and made (by one of her fashion designer bridesmaids, nonetheless!) in a lovely pale mint green for her exquisite Bali wedding last year.

Invitations

The best part about using green in your invitations is that it wont clash with the colors on the wedding day itself. Often people are concerned with outdoor weddings because there's already so much greenery! With invitations though, you can go green to your heart's content. Use green paper, or green ink, or even use green in the envelope liners!

In addition to her lovely green bridesmaid dresses, Claudia used mint green throughout her wedding paper. I designed the custom invitation suite above that used mint for their names (letterpress printed with a gold foil border) and the envelope was a beautiful pale mint. Perfect to convey the fresh tropical setting of Bali.

Hi Miss Puff
 

Tabletop Greenery

Incorporating subtle greenery into your tabletop decor will make your tables really pop! A bowl filled with ferns and other green leaves on a white tablecloth can be just the touch you need to add some color to your tables. 

It's super on-trend in 2017 to use only greenery on tables, instead of elaborate floral centerpieces. There are just as many beautiful shapes and sizes of leaves and greenery. Think of the variety just within succulents, monstera leaves and herbs!

The Wedding Cake

Add a little green by using ribbon and icing, or even better, some greenery to your wedding cake! These simple decorations can give off an elegant minimalist vibe while still adding a subtle touch of green to your cake.

Accessories

Use green as a sumptuous accent color by incorporating it into your wedding day accessories. Keep it to small elements like a nice pair of green shoes or an delightful floral crown which will add finishing touches to your overall look. Gorgeous earrings and small pieces of jewelry are perfect for this too!
