Green is one of those wedding colors that makes us wonder why it’s not more popular (although we like that it’s a hidden gem). After seeing so many weddings packed with hues like blush, blue, and most recently moody wedding colors, green is a welcome and refreshing change. These green wedding ideas show how versatile color is – not only is it one of the few colors that looks good year-round, but it also works on just about every wedding style, from classic black tie events to romantic garden parties and bohemian country weddings.

For a more subtle way to use green in your wedding stationery, keep the overall design basic (think neutral and timeless details), then add patterned envelope liners like this botanical-inspired motif.

An emerald engagement ring is an excellent choice for the bride who truly loves green – or for any bride who wants her ring to stand out from the rest. This brightly colored gem is royal and luxurious, as well as being the birthstone for the month of May (that’s your cue, Taurus and Gemini!).

Emerald or not, a special box is always a good idea when it comes to keeping your engagement ring safe. (Plus, they only look pretty in photos.) A velvet box in a shade of green complements the rings with any metallic color, be it platinum, rose gold, or yellow gold.
Stroll your things with a pair of colorful wedding shoes! These green apartments are stylish, comfortable, and fully reusable after your wedding day is over.
Take your wedding day to the next level by adding some touches of greenery to the finished look. We’re big fans of flowery wedding hairstyles, but there’s something about a green look that feels extra ethereal and bohemian. A braided style is perfect for weaving loose ferns or vines into your hair.

Jewel-toned bridesmaid dresses are a trend that we keep seeing over and over again, and we’re not crazy about it. These emerald green dresses are the perfect balance between sophistication and modernity with their streamlined silhouettes and varied necklines.

Women are not the only ones jumping on the green bandwagon. We’re predicting that this statement color will also be one of the biggest groom and groomsmen trends this year, and a green velvet jacket is a very good choice for anyone who wants to feel like a million bucks. Keep the rest of your ensemble simple in neutral colors (we like the classic black bow tie) for a sharper look.

Hall of ceremonies
Fresh greenery is naturally one of our favorite green wedding ideas. From ferns to eucalyptus trees, there are endless options when it comes to using green as a decoration, and it looks gorgeous both on its own and as a supplement to other flowers. If you really want to play on earthy vibes at your wedding, skip the bright blooms and think green, as shown here in this fern-filled ceremony hall.

Living room furniture
Creating a wedding hall area for your guests is a great way to encourage conversation when people are not seated at their tables. Velvet furniture with a rich green hue screams luxury.

Tartan table runner
Go for a casual winter wedding aesthetic? Instead of pairing the traditional green and red, go for a colourway that’s more unexpected, like this blue and green tartan jogger. It feels seasonal and festive without being a vacation in your face.

Add a touch of green to the landscapes of your wedding tables with the help of colored napkins. This is one of our favorite green wedding ideas for an evening out in the garden – the bare wood table combined with centerpieces and simple metal chairs are reminiscent of the English countryside in spring.
Pascale – La Vie Des Fleurs
Cover your reception tables with moss for a forest wedding effect. This decorative accent doesn’t need much else to stand out, but white flowers and votives are lovely options.
Golden Wisdom Events
We’ll always love traditional floral centerpieces, but green-only arrangements can be a stylish alternative if flowers aren’t really your thing. Consider using locally grown foliage and greenery at your hangout (like Spanish moss in the south, for example) for the most personal touch.

All you need are wooden labels and twine to transform green glass bottles into elegant, rustic table numbers. You can use new bottles – an excuse for weekly wine + wedding planning sessions, perhaps? – or look for mix-and-match styles at antique stores to create an eclectic look.
Vermont Tent Company
This pear decoration is just one way to embrace fruit as a decorating trend, and it’s also one of the easiest green wedding ideas to pull off. Use pears in the brightest lime color for a burst of green that is unexpected and fresh.
Clover Event Co.
Are you going the bohemian route? Accompany the green carnation stemware with a patterned table runner, potted succulents, and a tabletop of clear glass bottles for a look that’s party-ready.
Adorn the happy couple’s chairs with some large green ankle boots. This is one of the most versatile green wedding ideas, as you can change the look to be more classic or relaxed, depending on the amount and type of green used.
Sugar Rush Events
Present your guests with bottles of gourmet olive oil as a wedding gift. Not only is this something they’re really going to get used to (see more creative wedding gift ideas here), but a decorative food setup like this one is one of our top wedding trends for 2021.
You don’t have to go overboard when it comes to using green in your wedding décor – a simple hint of color here and there looks just as good. We love this dessert table with subtle hints of green through the tapered candles, macaroons, and painted brushstroke cake (hello that’s pretty!).
