Green Wedding Details

As you probably know, we love doing green events. Finding ways to make our weddings have less of an impact on the environment is at the top of our list. But with all of this rain (and everything looking so green), my mind also turns to a different kind of green wedding.

Spring is the perfect time of year to use the color green in weddings. From celedon to lime to kelly, green is fresh and fun (and looks great in combination with almost any color). As a florist friend once told me, "green is the new black." We love the idea of wearing colored shoes under a white wedding dress and what could be more fun than the pair above (photo courtesy of the Knot)?

I love these green floral pomanders decorating the aisle above (courtesy of the Knot) and the fabulous paper ones (from Etsy's Pom Love). Wouldn't these giant paper poms be fabulous suspended throughout a tent or just over the dance floor?

And, of course, what could be more clean and lovely than an all-green bouquet like the one featured at the top from Martha Stewart? I love the soft tone-on-tone look with various shades of barely green to lush celedon. The look is more unique than an all-white bouquet but not as dramatic as brightly colored or all-red bouquets. Love it!
