From budget-friendly Italian or English inspired greenery to an update on formal monochrome (Spoiler alert! It involves glittery gold!), wedding colour schemes for 2016/2017 are chic, sophisticated, fresh and completely fabulous ! The color that will be trending in 2017, "greenery" signifies a fresh new year, healthier food resolutions and growing vegetarian trends, according to the Pantone Color Institute.
A greenery theme can be integrated in to every part of the Big Day from invites to bouquets to the cake! Bouquets consisting of eucalyptus and simple white flowers will be a clean and fresh addition to the bride’s and bridesmaids’ looks, while garlands of greenery can be placed everywhere from archways to chair backs and even table runners for a romantic, organic feel.
Purple has always been a popular colour for weddings because of its regal, timeless feel but this is the year to mix up your shades and make it all the more modern. It’s fairly easy to integrate purple into wedding decor, and bridesmaid dresses take care of themselves, but take it up a notch by serving beautiful berry cocktails and topping your wedding cake with a mixture of fresh berries to really make your theme stand out.
Will you be the first bride to pick this color scheme? What color combo are you using for your wedding?
