Green and Brown: The Best Trimmings

Martha Stewart Weddings, Fall 2005

Using ribbon is an easy way to work your color palette into many details of your wedding. Browse sewing and trimmings stores for ribbons and trim in lustrous fabrics and unique designs; here are some of our favorite finds. Incorporate green and brown ribbons into bouquets and boutonnieres. At the ceremony, ribbon-tied garlands can mark seats for family members. At the reception, fasten menus to napkins with a dainty bow.
