Wedding cake green

My dear Gran was a serious red head and her favourite colour was always emerald green, from room decor to dresses, jewellery and even shoes.


Recently I was asked to use emerald green  for a wedding, so it got me thinking about the colour green and  especially the luxurious deep timeless emerald green and wondering what is around at the moment in this lush colour for an emerald green wedding day.

And here is what I have found from my favourite high street stores.

For the bridesmaids I have found these beautiful and elegant Ghost, dye to order range of gowns in emerald green. First is a cowl neckline Sylvia Grown , with short floating sleeves, slight tucking to the shoulders, and an enhanced super-slim waist, giving a gorgeous smooth, silhouette  shape. The flared hem has a slight fishtail train and delicate accents complete the look.  The other gown is the stunning floor length Zoe one shoulder gown, elegantly draped over one-shoulder, giving a slight look of an ancient Greek sculpture. Nipped in slightly at the waist, subtle and soft skimming over the hips, for a beautifully fluid feel, with a single draped sleeve showing a slim, slender shoulder. Both these gowns are just perfect for an emerald green wedding day.

Ribbon is always a great way to bring in the wedding colour and this gorgeous deep green ribbed grosgrain ribbon, is designed to give an extra dimension to all wedding detail adding a little bit of fun and creativity to your wedding decor. Match it in with this delicate green woven edge organza ribbon, to smarten up wedding napkins and favours. Jelly belly jelly beans are another great table decor idea. Take several shades of green and use them as table confetti or for a green sweet station.

For a touch of bridal glamour from the Azuni Athena collection, this stunning 24ct beaded bracelet in jade, brass base and 24ct plating bracelet is a great bridal accessory to work into your ensemble and is just perfect jewellery for a cream wedding gown.

If emerald green is a little bright, then these chic  highbury suede platform sandals  from Dune  with a peep toe design and t-bar finish, completed in a mint pastel tone may be more fitting, to create an elegant bridal look underneath a beautiful cream bridal gown.

For green tablescapes this beautiful luxury artificial Sia boxwood topiary plant in a pot, available in two size  makes a stunning yet simple wedding table centrepiece.

Bring the natural botanical fragrance of the Royal Botanic Gardens of Kew into your wedding reception with this beautiful wild fig fragrant scented candle in a tin for a great wedding aroma, complete with a decorative green recycled label.

To bring the green colour to the tablescape I find glass is ideal, and these contemporary handmade glass & porcelain coro assorted leaf tealight holders  will definitely create a stylish, appealing look and add a bit of glamour to the wedding table, giving warm tones, even when unlit. Norah’s tip: if you don’t want to go to the expense of green glass, just mix green food colour in water and add to clear glass votives and submerge a water resistant tealight.

This beautiful, elegant and simple bouquet, a study in white fashioned out of white, cream and green flowers and foliage, is a sophisticated display that will be hard to match.

Green pavé Stuart sunglasses will bring a bit of rock and roll to the wedding. Fabulously flamboyant, these crystal encrusted sunglasses feature a green fish embellishment, pavé crystal detail and metallic logo at the temple. Add style and fun to the ocassion, plus a little bit of bridal bling.

To complete the look these rich colour non-fading eye shadows blended together will create a multi–dimensional green palette that’s just for you.  Shade: Iridescent Soft Green and Pearlescent Dark Green.

Who said “Green was unlucky”, I known I didn’t and my Gran certainly didn’t!
