Inspiration Board # 56: Emerald Green & Black-White Damask

February 19, 2009

{Emerald Green & Black}

For this September wedding, Lydia told me that her favorite color was green and that she would love to use any shade of it. Lydia also told me that she found it frustrating because most of the ideas she had seen online of green weddings were more appropriate for spring or summer. Given complete liberty to pick the shade of green and pick the accent colors I decided to shy away from chartreuse for a change- and gave Lydia one of the most beautiful shades of green there is. For a fall wedding, I think Emerald is the perfect shade. Its rich, vibrant, and really really fun too! I added some white-black damask to the palette to add some interest and some extra personality. Floor length emerald satin green gowns were the inspiration for this wedding. Lush & lovely- This design makes me wonder why brides dont use emerald green more?
