1. Green Wedding Cake

A green wedding cake might not be your first choice…until you see these gorgeous designs by Maggie Austin! We love how she uses ruffle icing and ombre styling to soften the look of this bold color choice. While you might think that pale greens are limited to spring weddings, these designs show just how versatile this color can be for any season.

Simply adding bright, tropical flowers instantly sets the mood for a summer wedding, while white florals and pearl icing have us dreaming of a winter wonderland.

2. Wedding Canopy with Greenery

Another great way to incorporate a green color palette is by using, well, actual greenery! Canopies and backdrops are a popular trend for wedding ceremonies and receptions. One of our favorite ways to dress them up is by using greenery.

The combination of flowing white linens and wispy green branches creates such a romantic look! The best part is that you can easily add greens to your canopy or backdrop with a bit of floral wire and safety pins. P.S. Interested in renting a canopy? Check out rental options HERE.

3. Green Uplighting

Ready to go all out with green? Illuminate your reception venue with green uplighting! Emerald green lighting adds a rich wash of color to the walls and adds energy to the room. This is a perfect color choice to set the mood for dancing the night away. Not sure if you’re ready to go full-on green for the reception? Begin the reception with a softer color choice, and then transition to this vibrant green hue once the dancing begins.
