Fifty Shades of Green {Wedding Inspiration}

February 5, 2015 - by Nadya

Hello lovelies! Welcome back to our Fifty Shades Series.  Today is all about green.  From lime to emerald, every hue and personality is covered in the following 50 images.

For classic South Asian weddings, green remains a lovely calming counterbalance to the bright and traditional red.  Brides often don green bangles for good luck and some communities even incorporate green into the traditional dress, like the Gujarati panetar.

Tradition aside, green is universally associated with life, renewal, and energy.  All are excellent blessings for a new couple.  And there are so many shades!  Peaceful and sweet sage, torrid emerald, playful kelly - each hue offers a new take on green.  There are so many ways to incorporate green and its vitality in your wedding.  Look below for some gorgeous examples.
