If you've been to a few weddings lately or are planning your very own right now, you may have noticed that green is taking over! One of the biggest trends in wedding color this year and for next year is green, in all its various earthy shades. And green is not just huge in wedding palette hues, but also in florals, as greenery is really becoming a bouquet and centerpiece focal point and not just an accent anymore.
The hottest shade of green right now is emerald. This eye-catching jewel tone is popping up everywhere in bridesmaids gowns, reception linens and décor. It's an exceptional choice for fall and winter weddings and checks all the boxes in the 'dark wedding color' trend everyone is also loving this year. Cooler-weather weddings have this dramatic shade paired with camel, rust, cream and peach. And sophisticated forest and deep hunter green are true classics and certainly fit in nicely with the moody, dark trend, too!
A sweet couple whose wedding we filmed not too long ago, Margo and Deven, chose a deep emerald green for their wedding theme color. Margo's bridal party all dressed in beautiful long gowns in this shade and with it being a fall wedding, there were lots of autumn color accents in golden brown, cream, taupe and sage found throughout the event.
But 60's and 70's retro greens, like olive and avocado, are also in high demand for 2023 and 2024 weddings. If your wedding will have a minimalist, mid-century modern feel, these shades of green are it! Consider combining them with apricot, champagne, terra cotta or buttercream. But these muted tones also work wonderfully in garden-themed, outdoor spring and summer weddings. See how amazing bright, sunny bouquets pair with a paler avocado green bridesmaid gown!
Bright, grass green is also wildly popular this year. And nothing says 'spring or summer' better than this fresh, vivid hue! Overflowing hanging greenery installations or trailing greenery table runners in this bright green really show off this exciting shade and bring the outdoors inside.
We’re reminded of a few gorgeous weddings we’ve filmed where a bright spring green was chosen as one of the theme or accent colors. Perhaps the one that we remember best is Dana and Benny’s beautiful wedding event held at Adelphia. Dana’s bridesmaids wore a refreshing shade of grass green and green accents were found throughout the entire event, from the bridal robe to the berries in the bouquets.
And don't count out those softer, lighter shades of green. Romantic sage, celadon and springy mint green are still very much in vogue. It's so effortless to mix these versatile shades with either bright, bold colors or with light neutrals, making them ideal for any wedding event.
If you’re planning a wedding for the end of this year or for 2024 and haven’t picked your theme colors yet, would you consider adding green into the mix?
