“Pantone Greenery ” This special shade of green has been named Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2017! “A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings,” say the experts at Pantone, so what better base tone to build your wedding design from? Give this basic natural colour a second look with our inspiring ideas to freshen up your palette.
Greenery is a perfect colour for weddings for the same reason that spring weddings are so popular – they symbolize newness, freshness, and rejuvenation. Reminiscent of the young tendrils coming to life with the first warm sunshine of the year, this shade keeps to the warmer, golden side of the green spectrum.
If you’re hoping for an outdoor wedding, look for space that has lots of open green grass areas to create a lush backdrop for your event and photos. Ideas include botanic gardens, public parks, or beautifully-landscaped museums. Coordinate with your florist to design bouquets and arrangements that utilize as many of the local green varieties as possible to keep a nice flow from backdrop to décor. Oversized vases or planters with cascading greenery make stunning centerpieces. Using white or soft yellow flowers in your bouquets will contrast perfectly with greenery, creating a natural frame around them.
We love how the idea of the frame of green around white is beautifully-executed in this immaculate white cake with scattered leaves at the base. There are even some amazing invitation companies that will allow you to customize the look to match, like this dip-dyed green and white paper suite.
So, whether you’re planning an outdoor spring wedding or trying to recreate the feeling of a springtime new beginning, consider the myriad of options that Pantone’s Greenery provide to create your dream look!
