Are You Keen For Green? Using Green As An Accent Colour

Happy Hump Day! It's Wednesday and we're really feeling this green theme (a rhyme!). But we want you to know that green doesn't have to be gaudy. Green can be a very clean colour, especially when paired with a neutral colour like cream or even a pale taupe. Why do you think foliage always looks so great in a bouquet? Green is a great accent colour. 
If you like green, but don't want it to steal the scene (ha! another rhyme!) and be overpowering, try using it as a simple accent colour.

 Try creating centrepieces for your tables with cute green jars, they can even be used to decorate the aisle. Add in a delicate floral arrangement for maximum effect.

One of the great things about green is that it is such a natural colour, and can be found everywhere! With a current trend of weddings taking place in more foresty environments, it seems the perfect opportunity to let the natural world into your wedding. A simple way of doing this is a gorgeous wreath to wear in your hair. This looks great teamed with a very natural and loose hairstyle.

If green is your favourite colour, like Finley, one of our real life brides, it can be the perfect opportunity to explore the different decorative ways to involve it.

We're loving this cute green bottle being used as a straw holder. What do you think?
