I’m taking a little break from making custom jewelry and modern bridal accessories today to talk about wedding inspiration! If you follow me on Pinterest, you know that I love to curate wedding ideas based on styles, themes, and color palettes. Today I want to show you a few ideas for incorporating Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2017 – Greenery! It’s a medium green that evokes the color of leaves at the height of spring.
1. Invitations & Stationery

Because Pantone Greenery is a brightly saturated color, I recommend using it as an accent rather than focal color in your stationery to maintain an elegant look. I particularly love this invitation suite from Third Clover Paper, which features a green envelope with matching vintage stamps. It’s a gorgeous complement to the classic ivory and gold invitation & RSVP card.

Another great way to add some Pantone Greenery color to your wedding day is with your bridesmaids’ dresses. You can dress all of your attendants in the same shade for a bold on-trend look. Or, if you prefer a less uniform look you may consider adding accent hues like mint and sage to bring depth and variety.
3. Bouquets & Florals

Bringing a touch of Pantone Greenery to your wedding through actual greenery may seem like a no-brainer, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention florals! Even if you’re a fluffy white peony enthusiast, you can easily add some lemon leaves or baby hydrangea to the mix for a touch of extra greenery. Trailing vines on a cascading bouquet are another trendy look that you may want to consider!
4. Wedding Garter

If you’re looking for a more subtle way to incorporate Pantone Greenery, consider using it as an accent color in your wedding garter. It’ll be hidden under your dress for most of the day, but it’ll look great in those detail photos from your photographer. You can even customize your garter with a bit of lace from your mom’s wedding dress or another meaningful garment if you order it from The Garter Girl!
5. Groom’s Attire

A green tuxedo or men’s suit is a non-traditional look to be sure. That said, I absolutely adore the look of this green suit from Asos! I can picture the perfect boho-chic wedding styled around this piece. Maybe the bride would wear a greenery crown and an eyelet dress with long, loose waves inspired by 1970s fashion. What do you think?
6. Earrings & Jewelry
Adding Pantone Greenery to the design of your bridal accessories is another way to bring a bit of this trendy color to your wedding day. Whether you opt for a pair of pre-designed earrings like these ones from my shop or choose custom jewelry, you’ll have the added benefit of being able to wear your Pantone Greenery inspired accessories after your wedding day, too! Classic pearl earrings with modern styling pair perfectly with office attire and formal wear. They might just become your favorite piece of jewelry!
