Wedding Color Ideas Inspired by the 2017 Pantone Shade: Greenery
It's that time of year that design lovers around the world await excitedly, curious to see what color trends will be popular in next season's fashion, interiors, furniture lines, and even weddings. The recent release of Pantone's Spring 2017 Fashion Color Report doesn't disappoint in bringing more wedding trends with it. Greenery is officially in the line-up, and since we've been loving the trend toward all hues of fresh and friendly greens, we have no doubt we'll be seeing a lot of green wedding color palettes in the coming months.
Pantone describes 15-0343 Greenery as, "Bringing forth a refreshing take, Greenery is a tangy yellow-green that speaks to our need to explore, experiment, and reinvent.

We're pretty sure that any color that signals a deep breath on your wedding day is probably a good idea to incorporate into the color palette.
From floral designs to cake ideas to small accessories, we're talking all things Greenery in the wedding trends department. Whether you decide to take the au natural approach and fill your wedding day with wild greens, or if you go with a literal translation and take Greenery into your printed materials, here are a few ideas to get you started.
