Wedding Colour Theme: Emerald

Emerald green makes such a beautiful and rich winter wedding colour, evoking a mood of luxury and opulence, especially when paired with gold accents. Emerald as a wedding theme is beautiful on its own or can be softened by combining with greys, creams and even pinks. Enjoy our inspiration below.

Emerald is one of those tones that are flattering to all skin tones so it should suit all your bridesmaids beautifully. Mismatched dresses look wonderful, you can ask your bridesmaids to stick to the same colour and go for a variety of styles. In the picture on the left the maid of honour in gold works so well against the emerald. The greys on the right also look beautiful with the emerald, and you can work the grey right through your wedding along with emerald.

When it comes to flowers you have many choices with an emerald wedding, an unlikely but gorgeous choice is deep pinks and maroons, these look so stunning with emerald, making it a little more fun and a little softer and vibrant. Whites and creams are also a great option, as is peach.

These jewel coloured glasses are just so regal and beautiful and a great way to incorporate emerald into your wedding table setup. An easier option is to use green ribbon around cutlery. You also have the option of an emerald table runner, because emerald is such a rich colour, similarly rich fabrics like silk and satin work so well. Another colour combination you can look at is mint, peach and emerald, the emerald adding richness to the mint and peach.

An ombre wedding cake is a great way of adding emerald to the cake without it veering too far away from traditional, another option is to have an emerald green cake table cloth.
