2017 colour trend: go green with your wedding

Green wedding theme

The colours you select for your wedding décor will have a big impact on everything from the look of your photos to the satisfaction of your bridesmaids. Choose shades that work well together, enhance your skin tone and complement your setting, photos and bridal party. Choose clashing shades on the other hand and your bridesmaids, groomsmen and photographer will all be less than impressed.

If you want to go modern with your wedding colour theme, green is one of the most on trend tones for 2017. Fresh, bright and bold, a green theme will help your wedding to stand out from the crowd.

A colour for all seasons

One of the great things about green is that it’s suitable for all seasons. Like Still White Dress says “Natural, flowing foliage will be the inspiration for wedding colour palettes from seaside summer settings, to seasonal winter festivities” in 2017. Perfect for ceremonies taking place in spring, summer and winter, green evokes a range of seasonal images and can create a beautiful, natural backdrop for your big day.


If you opt for a green colour palette, you can enhance your wedding décor with natural foliage. Either ask your florist to provide you with a selection of leaves and branches or head out into the garden yourself, armed with a pair of secateurs and some loppers. Placing the foliage on tables, on notice boards and around the venue will help to tie your décor together and accentuate your wedding theme.


As well as using green foliage to decorate your wedding venue, you can use it to accessorise your outfit and the outfits of your wedding party. Garlands, buttonholes and even bouquets made from foliage can all look fantastic and give your wedding a slightly different aesthetic.

Matching bouquet and hair accessories


If you choose a natural colour like green, your theme can also extend to your food and drinks. It’s easy to make cocktails go bright green, and you can also select canapés that are bright green or that are adorned with fresh green herbs and vegetables.

Colours that work with green

As green is one of Mother Nature’s favourite shades, there are a lot of colours that work with it very well. If you want green to be the stand out colour at your wedding, make your secondary shade something more subtle like white, silver or grey. Alternatively you could take inspiration from the garden and opt for a bright, bold shade like red, yellow or even pink.
