Pantone Color of the Year: Greenery

Symbolizing new beginnings, the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year makes quite a fitting choice for weddings.

Metallic Accents

The versatility of greenery makes it easy to incorporate into just about any color scheme. While the shades in this wedding invitation suite appear slightly more muted than the zesty Color of the Year itself, Pantone pairs greenery with shades of gold for an ethereal palette.

Mossy Elements

We’re expecting more textures to dominate 2017 weddings, including plenty of moss. Often sporting the yellow-green hue, this natural material can be easily styled into details from centerpieces to ring boxes.

Monochromatic Bouquets

Taking advantage of the textured trend, this wedding bouquet sports the hue without leaves or petals. The result is a simple, uniform appearance that’s anything but boring (and a great option for a smaller budget).

Simple Decorations

To add some garden style to any venue, utilize hanging arrangements in the details. Shown here, simple garlands add a sense of spring to this ceremony setting.

Bright Boutonnieres

Despite the nickname “nature’s neutral,” greenery is a great way to add color to a groom’s suit without going overboard. These eye-catching selections can be found in the Spring 2017 issue of mywedding Magazine.

Cascading Colors

Paired with a white wedding dress, a greenery bouquet packs a vibrant punch for any bridal look. For a minimalist style, try a monochromatic greenery bouquet or add a few colorful accents like this option.

The Great Indoors

For an outdoor or indoor ceremony, we love the idea of adding greenery to the altar. If you’re getting married outside, a decorative arch can make a great addition to your setting. We also love how the combination of candles and wreaths creates a romantic effect at this cottage venue.

Confectionery Bliss

Greenery isn’t the only thing making its way into 2017’s weddings. One of our favorite cake trends, the semi-naked frosting, continues to hold strong too. Shown here, a combination of these two equals dessert perfection.

Tropical Vibes

There’s nothing quite as appropriate for summertime event or beach wedding as tropical details. If you’re not about flowers, lush arrangements of palm leave and fern adds lots of texture, vibrance and beachy flair to any tablescape.
