In emerald, nature gives us a true gem of the color spectrum — a hue that exudes both coolness and luxury at any event. But why stop there? Add to emerald a range of greens and blues to bring the beauty of your nuptials to fun, fresh heights! For an outdoor affaire, you can’t go wrong with these cool colors straight from mother nature. Simply look around our world for inspiration. A lush rainforest, a wide open field, the turquoise waters of the ocean, the midnight sky . . . the possibilities for a blue and green palette are endless! For a modern twist, be sure to use bold patterns and vibrant flowers in these tones to give your celebration extra chic! The exhilarating elegance of this cool color pair is bound to steal your heart with these images by Sean & Amanda Photography!
THINGS TO REMEMBER
When one considers blues and greens, it doesn’t take long for the mind to dream up lovely scenes of nature! These colors are right at home in the outdoors, making them the perfect choice for spring or summer weddings in the open air.
ITEMS TO INCORPORATE
Get the mixed-matched look by incorporating antique tins, multi-shades of blues and greens, and play with patterns. Also, opt for custom painted chiavari chairs in blue for that unexpected pop of color.
Use cool colored flowers with a ton of textures – Lady Slipper Orchids, Blue Anemones, Green and White Ranunculus, Scabiosa Pods, and a mixture of ferns and variegated leaves.
WHAT TO WEAR
Like emeralds themselves, be daring yet elegant. Try an ivory gown with a suble pattern in the fabric, selecting shoes and jewelry that will provide bold color. Also make sure your eye makeup matches the colors. Consider investing in a quality makeup artistry team to enhance your entire bridal party’s eyes.
