Greens, Greens, Greens!!!

I love this inspiration board. Of course, as I have said before I am in serious lust with the color. It is like sunshine on a cloudy day. How could you not just love it. I love using the idea of natural things as much as possible. Whether it's taking pictures in a great natural field or using leaves for your ring pillow or to add some "wow" to your cake. So simple, so cost effective and so beyond lovely!

 

FLOWERS AND GREENERY

I love the idea of an abundance of green. The more natural and earthy looking the better! From the bridal bouquet, to the bridesmaids, to the boutonniere (oh and did you notice the picture in the grooms pocket instead of a boring ol' swatch of fabric...could you die? I think I did... love it). I love the use of green hydrangeas. They look gorgeous on the back of a chair or as a centerpiece. Greens are great because you can use many shades and it will still look perfect. Add some slices of lime or lemon to the vases for a fresh feel...and voila...instant gorgeousness! Pretty close to perfect in my eyes!

The ring pillow shown here is so simple and can be created by your florist. Any broad green leaves will do. Add a few small Kermit Mums or a single Spider Mum in the center, tied with a little ribbon and you’re set. Original and very very GREEN. How pretty would a ring look glittering on that bed of leaves!?

Any simple white cake with clean lines can take a whole new turn by adding Cymbidium Orchids. This cake is just gorgeously vibrant and fresh!

STATIONERY 

Featured here are Petit Peacock programs from Peacock Invitations on Etsy. Real little drops of heaven. Cute, small and easy for your guests to bring home and the original artwork is just stunning. They would also look great in your wedding album or a frame celebrating your special day too!

ACCESSORIES

I am IN LOVE with these earrings by Human Kindness on Etsy. So sweet and understated but so pretty and a perfect "pop" to your dress or make perfect bridesmaids’ gifts for your girls. More than anything, what’s better than supporting handmade AND supporting a good cause!?

Also shown here is a satin sash with three gorgeous vintage style ivory silk dupioni roses. Such a gorgeous way of making your dress unique. Yes, we are obsessed with Emici Bridal’s work;) So vintage, so perfect!

FAVORS

I know we’ve portrayed these before but we just love the natural look and think starfish make great favors and here they are they also serve as escort cards. And again another favor, that gives you more bang for your buck are the fans. Pretty and functional!

All you need to tie these two beautiful options into your wedding is some ribbon to match your color scheme.

So, green bridesmaids dresses, green cake, green stationary, green favors, green floral arrangements and bouquets... Like I said I am in lust with this color. *sigh*
