Colour is such a crucial part of any wedding and with Pantone just announcing its colour of the year for 2017, we’re bound to see Greenery rise in popularity, especially with the trend-conscious bride. Though it’s not essential to always go for the colour of the season (as weddings are very much about your individual personality), if in fact looking to add a spritz of fresh air to your special day, then here are a few suggestions on how to do so.
For the optimist:
What creates a happier mood than flowers? As we’ve mentioned in our previous post (5 wedding trends that are on their way out) chair covers are going out of fashion. Instead, match the strands of beautiful blooms that twirl around your mandap to those overflowing on the backs of your chairs, so that guests feel as if they’re languishing in the summer sunshine in a field full of colour. This is an ideal decoration for your cake too, a simple sponge confection with lashings of white buttercream and plenty of tumbling flowers will put a smile on everyone’s faces as they dig in.
For the fashionista:
Green is such an underrated colour when it comes to style choices. However, as current fashion campaigns are showing, like in Sabyasachi’s brand new collection, the versatile and wild green is bringing in new ideas and standing out from the crowd. Darker skin tones can really pop with brighter eyeshadows, whereas grooms can add a touch of sartorial boldness with a simple white and gold outfit, alongside a perfectly wrapped saffa. However, when wearing such a rich and heavy colour, go for a light, flowy fabric to keep your look summery and fresh.
For the modernist:
Green and ivory can make the most elegant combination. The two with shimmering gold can transport your guests back in time to another world. However, try not to overwhelm your guests, with too many fussy details. In fact, this theme will also create an instant intimate atmosphere whilst feeling new and clean.
