panatoneAnother year, another colour. Introducing Pantone Colour of the Year  “GREENERY”! After the clock strikes midnight on December 31st everything changes. This new “it” colour determines what will be  trending in clothes, accessories, décor and for this hopeless romantic, weddings.  Not only was “Greenery” named Color of the Year for 2017 but actual greenery has been trending for the past couple of years. Florists and organic lovers alike can let their minds go wild with ways to turn this trendy colour into something magical for your special day.

When it comes to weddings, I’m décor obsessed. I love incorporating a mix of colour and texture. Pantone’s Greenery may be too vibrant for some however, I see endless possibilities.

The easiest way to include this shade of green into your wedding is  through florals. From bouquets and boutonnieres, lining the aisle to creating a lush garden reception. There are so many ways to include a touch of green while not totally overpowering your guests.

“Greenery” can be used from beginning to end. From invitations, to backdrops, place settings and centerpieces.

In fact, your wedding theme can include garden tea time or even lush forest for the more nature loving couple. You can honestly go either way with this colour and it will make for amazing photos.

For the bride who is a little more daring, you can use “Greenery” through your wedding party attire. Dress your ‘maids in different shades of green. Personally, I love the whole mix and match or ombréd effect for a bridal party. There are many unique ways to include this colour from your shoes to your nails to your clutch. “Greenery” makes for a perfect pop.

Will we see “Greenery” branch out into other elements of the day besides décor and florals? From the looks of that mouth watering cocktail, we think it should!
