We’re not talking about the green movement here (spoiler alert: that’s next week). We’re also not discussing the “Shades of Grey” book. (Not. Discussing.) No, we’re talking beautiful color, lots of it, in vibrant shades of green. We expected that, since it’s official: the 2013 Color of the Year is emerald. But there’s also mint green, jade, citrusy green, and more.
We’ll see more green making inroads into gowns, accessories, bouts, bowties and suspenders, gems, heels, and eye makeup. Trick dianthuses and green hypericum are some of the stars in this palette; even hotter are the coveted “Rive Gouche” and “Green Eye” roses, with their pop of green at the center. Orchids and succulents are also fantastic with this look.
As for color combinations, pair green with peach or yellow. For a stunning look, try black and white—or just plain white with your favorite shade of green. Some of this year’s other wedding trends, like jewel tones and metallics, work well with this style. What we’re also predicting this season—and what we’re intrigued by—is a blue influence in this palette, heading toward aqua. Still, what’s hottest is that individuality reigns, so expect to see a variety of interpretations of Shades of Green.

Toward the end of the year, I’m expecting aqua to emerge as a favorite. Aqua brings a rich but cool, more subtle feel to the wedding landscape. That said, green is timeless.”
