Pantone’s own description of “greenery” proves how wonderful it can be as part of your wedding colour palette. “A refreshing and revitalising shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate”.
Greenery is nature’s neutral. A great harmoniser merging undertones of cool blues with vibrant yellows, the hue is a natural complement to a wide range of palettes. Greenery will provide a pop of colour in your wedding décor and just perfect for your wedding in an Irish Castle. Regardless of the weather if you would like to ensure you have a touch of the outside inside Greenery is the trick!
The “zesty yellow-green” shade can be used in a wide variety of wedding details. These include bouquets, ceremony & reception flowers, table runners, bridesmaid dresses, stationery and your wedding day heels!
Dress your bridal party in beautiful greenery dresses and add a stunning, eye catching pair of green shoes to your attire! While the groom can incorporate the greenery in his boutonniere which he will wear on his lapel.
Dispense with a fresh floral bouquet & take your bouquet right back to nature with a bouquet of greenery. While your girls could carry a smaller version of your bouquet you could also add some white flower or gyp to theirs as a little differentiation from your bouquet. Particularly if they are wearing green or dark coloured dresses a splash of white will pop !
Set on the lush green lawn or indoors in a wooden /barn like structure. Marry under a greenery arch or have your guests enter the ceremony under an arch of green foliage. Add brilliant hanging tee lights for a wonderful twinkle! Or rather than an arch frame bride & groom with natural tall trees either side perhaps similar to our image!
Introduce greenery to your outdoor cocktail reception. Accessorize the drinks stations with rustic green foliage, add as ties on the neutrally clothed high pod tables.

Runners are a lovely wedding table accessory and by using greenery you can get the runner & your centrepiece in one! On long bench style tables set off by wonderful neutral linens or even beautiful bare wooden table tops.
