Green Wedding Ideas

What is it about the color green that we love so much? Well, it could be considered a neutral. Think about it. Green goes with everything. It’s in the leaves on the trees, in the blades of the grass and in the stems of flowers (which come in a huge array of pretty colors). See? Everything. And Mother Nature doesn’t lie, right? Right. Not to mention the color green comes in seemingly a hundred different gorgeous shades from mint to kelly to evergreen. All of which would look beautiful on any wedding day. We’ve gathered some of our favorite green wedding inspiration from real weddings to share with you today! Everything from fashion to florals to favors and everything in between – green wedding ideas galore!

  1. What a great post Alexandra – I LOVE seeing all the green wedding ideas. So many wonderful ideas, I can’t even pick a favorite shade of green. I love them all, especially now that spring is in the air. Loving the scalloped cake, the mason jars with paper wrappers and the bride in the green cardigan.

      Thank you so much, Brenda! I don’t know that I could pick a favorite shade of green either. Every time I think I do, another shade comes along to bump it out of the way :) The scalloped cake is probably my favorite too! And the different shades of bridesmaids dresses – so pretty! Thanks for reading!! xo
