Pantones' chosen colour of the year for 2017 is 'Greenery' ! According to them "Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew." This is also one of the biggest wedding colour trends to emerge in 2017. Highly influenced by the freshness of nature with leaf and foliage. We wanted to share with you some inspiration for your wedding day.
An outdoor-indoor theme with a calm and nature infused environment is what this trend brings to mind almost reminiscent of a secret garden. A deep sense of new life and nature to enhance your wedding day. The table settings look so beautiful and full of zest. Add an enchanting touch to your champagne flutes with some leafy vines and greenery.
Greenery gives such life and vibrance to decor, twisted among canopies, draped on stairwells and along isles, twisted throughout chairs and elegantly cascading on the tiers of your wedding cake. A rich colour for bridesmaids with complimentary contrast to your wedding dress, set off with a spectacular bouquet of bursting leaves.
Jewellery and headpieces inspired by the natural world have really taken off this year, in particular hair vines. Delicately accented with scatterings of crystals and pearls choose from a simple piece or a more statement making headpiece. Super flexible to place in the hair, wear to the side, back or over the crown of the head. Vines can also be teemed with traditional veils.
