Today indigosilver studio is here to help inspire us with the 2017 Pantone color of the year and show how you can incorporate it into your wedding!
“Every year, Pantone (considered THE authority on color), chooses their Color of the Year. Each year’s color is chosen based on understanding cultural trends and influences. For 2017, Pantone has announced “Greenery” as the color of the year, drawing on our need to incorporate nature into our modern lives. Already, we are seeing tons of greenery being used throughout wedding decor. This gorgeous wedding trend allows nature’s beauty to shine in a very simple and organic feel. The most obvious ways to use Greenery are in literal greenery – leaves, vines, and other plants — but not always! Here are a few ways to use Pantone Greenery in your wedding — both natural greenery and otherwise.
Perhaps the best way to incorporate lots of greenery at your wedding is to simply get married somewhere green! Check your local gardens, parks, and marshes. Consider a ceremony at the golf course or country club. Or, if it doesn’t fit your timeline or location to go green on the wedding day, go on a day-after session with your photographer and explore beautiful fields and meadows a bit further from your ceremony site.
Traditional wedding boutonnieres are small floral displays pinned to the groom and groomsmen’s coats. To add an influence of Greenery, consider using unbloomed white flower, seeded eucalyptus, or for a surprising twist, air plants or succulents. Here are some of our favorites:
The most popular floral color to combine with greenery in a bouquet is white. The simplicity of the white flower really lets the Greenery shine through. To add complexity and depth to your white-and-greenery bouquet, consider using multiple types of white flowers in different sizes, shapes, and stem lengths. You can also use green flowers, like the green hydrangea shown below. Hydrangea leaves, dusty miller, hypericum berries, and seeded eucalyptus are modern 2017 updates to the traditional fern greens. Want a little more color in your wedding bouquet? Try faded or lightly colored florals like a pale blush Sahara rose.
Your wedding ceremony is another place to incorporate some greenery. Go minimal with simple floral arrangements as aisle markers, or go big with chair bows and parasols! You can even include greenery in the small details, like your unity candle or sand ceremony.
Centerpieces are a great way to add greenery to your wedding decor! Whether you’re using greenery as a color theme or simply as “Nature’s neutral”, there are lots of ways to go green. Of course, actual greenery is always one way to go. Or you can use other green items — green apples, limes, napkins, and tablecloths are all great green centerpiece ideas. For a look that’s very on-trend, consider using green hydrangea in your vases, or trailing the table with seeded eucalyptus or vines.
The Wedding Cake
Let’s not forget the wedding cake! When considering wedding cake ideas with greenery, you can again go with live greenery and flowers, or even green frosting!”
