When asked about 2017 wedding trends, wedding expert Colin Cowie had this to say: “We’re going to see a lot more greenery in place of abundant wedding flowers. Flowers will certainly never go out of style, but this year they may have to move over for bright and beautiful leaves. It doesn’t hurt that Pantone supported this movement by electing Greenery as their Color of the Year.”
Yes, Pantone just announced its 2017 color of the year, and it’s a zesty, yellow-green color named Greenery.
Many other wedding stylists agree that in 2017, the biggest wedding floral trend is no floral at all. Instead we’ll see simple arrangements of leaves, branches or palms accented with a hint of floral color. For a more dramatic effect, consider incorporating a canopy of greenery that hangs high above guests’ heads.
A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.
It evokes the natural beauty of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the outdoors. Greenery reminds us to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.
Greenery is nature’s neutral. It is a versatile “trans-seasonal” shade that lends itself to many color combinations. It pairs marvelously with neutrals, brights, deeper shades and pastels.
The "zesty yellow-green" shade can be used in a wide variety of wedding details, including but not limited to bouquets, table runners, bridesmaid dresses, boutonnieres, and even your shoes.
We recommend pairing Greenery with lavender, which grows abundantly in New Mexico’s sandy soils. Lavender is very fragrant and has both a relaxing and uplifting effect.
