In case you’ve been living under a rock, the Pantone color of the year is Greenery and we’re seeing it all over the Wedding Design Game this year. From place settings, bridesmaid dresses, to floral arrangements, couples are taking a more earthy approach to wedding design where less is more by skimping on bountiful bright flowers, and opting more for shrubbery, vines, and foliage to set the scene for their wedding day, and I must say we’re loving it!

Let’s take a closer look on where couples are adding in this year’s wedding trend:

Tablescapes + Centerpieces

All the rage this year is adding tinted drinking glasses and tall foliage centerpieces to your dinner tables. Think bringing the outside in, minus the pollen. Usually at a fraction of the cost, choosing foliage over florals allows for our couples to include more impactful statement pieces and add a fresh touch to their big day. The green creates such a clean and natural feel to any wedding day design, don’t you think?

Wedding Bouquets

Imagine you woke up the morning of your wedding, took a walk in the backyard and gathered up every flower, vine, and branch you met to create the perfect wedding bouquet. Well this is exactly how Pantone’s Greenery has upgraded the “unkept” look and turned it into something whimsical. This florals option only look is the perfect way to create a low maintenance bouquet and still be on trend. So get to picking!

Bridesmaid Dresses

You mean you chose GREEN as your bridesmaid color dress? The horror! Relax ladies. We’re shifting away from “pretty colors” like pinks and purples and choosing more edgy and modern colors for our maids to wear, and green has become no exception. Perfect for any seasonal wedding, green wedding dresses are all the rage this year and we’re right on board! Concerned about having the entire crew look like a head of lettuce? Feel free to mix and match neutrals with the color to add a subtle yet fun take on the trend.

At the end of the day, your wedding is your own. Choose your favorite color, have fun with design, and get a little crazy with it. It’s ok, it’s your wedding day. This is your one time to do so!
