It’s that time of year again! Pantone has announced their official colour for 2017.

Drumroll please…

it’s Greenery!

Greenery you say? Yes, Greenery! A lush shade that’s kind of like a cross between olives ripened in the sun and beautiful ferns and moss found deep in the rainforest.

This botanical-inspired hue is all the rage at weddings right now and we totally understand why — it’s absolutely versatile!

Greenery looks amazing when teamed with other colours. We love it paired with gold, pink, white, silver and even copper. Ideal for brides wanting to showcase a bohemian, organic, wood-nymph or garden vibe on their big day, let’s discover all the ways you can utilise this bold new shade.

1. Bridal Headpieces

Ever-so-easy for brides to achieve, glam up an amazing wedding-day hairdo with a greenery hairpiece. If you’re on a budget or want a truly au-natural look, fashion a crown of fern fronds or eucalypt leaves dotted with roses, daisies or jasmine. Alternatively, shop an exquisite range of greenery inspired hair accessories handmade at La Belle. Our headpiece: Jasmine floral bridal headpiece is a perfect example.

2. Nuptial and Wedding Reception Decorations

For a truly ethereal look, have your venue stylist hang vines and trailing ferns from lanterns or from the ceiling. Alternatively, host your reception outside under eucalypts trees fragrant with perfume. Tables look absolutely magical scattered with fronds and leaves, or when highlighted with green hued accessories such as candles, runners and napkins.

4. Wedding Bouquet and Groom Boutonniere

A beautiful way of incorporating greenery into your wedding is to have your bouquet or boutonniere overflowing with foliage.

5. Wedding Ceremony Arch

If you’re hosting a garden wedding, invest in an amazing florist and an event stylist that specialises in outdoor settings. A wedding arch covered in foliage and blossoms such as ferns, eucalypts, magnolia, jasmine, dusty miller and roses makes an incredible big-day visual.

7. Bridesmaid Dresses

If you’re feeling super bold, invest in a collection of green bridesmaid dresses for your big-day posse. Not only will your girlfriends look sophisticated and timeless, they’ll also provide incredible contrast against your white wedding gown and veil.
