Going green: The perfect summer wedding shade

Green wedding colour scheme - bridesmaid dresses

Besides being popular with brides wanting a more sustainable wedding, green has become a fashionable colour too.

Olive shades in particular were big on the spring/summer catwalks this year with designers such as Victoria Beckham and Alberta Ferretti using the shade to create elegant and directional looks.

At first glance, you may not think that green is a versatile shade, but it goes well with lots of other colours – from neutrals to blush pink, burgundy and gold. It also injects a touch of freshness to wedding décor, thanks to associations with the great outdoors.

If you’re after a green big day, here are some ideas to get you started…

Nine ways to incorporate green into your wedding day colour scheme

Go green with your bridesmaid dresses

It might not seem the most obvious shade for your bridesmaid, but green is one of those suits all type of colours that will look sophisticated and stylish. Choose a sage green, like our real bride Jessica (above) for any season or go for darker, rich greens for a winter wedding.

Go green with your cake

A green cake may seem like something out of a Shrek movie, but it can actually be super stylish as this one by Sally Cooper shows. Pair it with white and gold layers and flowers with blush and orange hues for a cake that really nails the trend.
