A Color Palette Series | Fifty Shades of Green

A Color Palette Series: Fifty Shades of Green | A color palette series breaking down different shades of a color and helping you decide which shade you want in your wedding | Blog Series by Perfectly Posh Events


We know the question you’ve all been wondering– When is the next Fifty Shades installment going to be here!? Well, fear not, it is here, and we are thrilled to discuss the next color in our color palette series that we have affectionately and pun-intendedly titled “Fifty Shades”. We are proud to introduce…Fifty Shades of Green!

So here we find ourselves again, attempting to show you the creative ways different shades of a single color can be incorporated into your wedding day festivities. We also are striving to set the record straight on the exact shade of color you’ve been trying to describe to your friends and family that you’re wanting used in your big day. So here we go, in an attempt to shed a small light on the beautiful, boundless shades of green.

We all know that green can often be a bit tricky, since floral greenery is typically where green is incorporated into a wedding. Don’t get us wrong, we love the ever popular green swag as much as the next planner, but this just doesn’t give the color green the justice it deserves on the color wheel of possibilities!

And for those of you who have not read up on our other Fifty Shades, you can find our different blogs here {pink} and here {white}.

So besides a term we will use, called “natural greenery”, which refers to any kind of greenery swag used in wedding decor, here are a few shades of green that can surprisingly be incorporated into your wedding look–and look good in it!


Here’s our Fifty Shades of Green lineup:


Now that we’ve given you our lineup of featured green shades, let’s delve into some of our own real weddings and events that feature these hues and show you how they could translate into your own wedding, as well as a complementing color scheme for each of them!

We swoon over the romance that Hunter Green brought to Bailey + Pete’s New Year’s Eve nuptials. It served as a solid neutral for their other colors like Red Dahlia, Snow White, and Silver to shine! The fact that the dark evergreen on the property was decorated with twinkling lights and dark red ornaments proves their color scheme and the holidays were meant to be! B+P used a mix of metallics throughout the entire design scheme of their day, which we are finding is quickly becoming a new trend! The mixing of metallics like gold and silver worked perfectly on their New Year’s Eve celebration!

We love the unique and bold statement Hillary made with the decision to have an emerald green dress! Being it was her favorite color {her earrings AND engagement ring were all emeralds!} it seemed like an emerald colored dresses was the only option that felt right! This made her color palette decision an easy one! We simply worked around the vibrance of emerald green and grounded it with a beautiful array of other colors. We loved using Hushed Green in her florals to round out the emerald green, along with an elegant pairing of Snow White & Jet Black to be the neutrals in her color scheme. Hillary + Martin were married in Autumn on the cliffs of Snoqualmie Falls, and wanted to channel the atmosphere of their surroundings. They used many natural elements in their design, such as moss and wood rounds which gave their day a {and their color palette} a great place to rest and also show its versatility from elegant to rustic!

We could look at Makayla + Johnny’s wedding day nuptials over and over! They were onto something when they picked such a light and ethereal green like White Jade to have the spotlight on their wedding day! When they paired it with colors like Light Gray, Petal Pink, and Bright White, it proved that green is the new pink! Do we see a new wedding color trend coming on?! If you’re looking for the light, whimsical, romantic feel for your wedding day, but are hoping to see something other than pink take center stage, White Jade may be the shade you’ve been looking for! We love how the natural greenery fits in and works around White Jade to give it that whimsical, natural essence. Everything about M+J’s wedding makes us crave White Jade!

To say we are loving these muted greens is an understatement! Kaja + Joe took pastel colors like Milky Green and Pastel Yellow, and paired them with some some beautiful neutral colors like Snow White and Glacier Gray, and the result is elegant affair! We haven’t seen this shade of green on the scene very long, but we sure wouldn’t mind seeing more of it! We love the neutral base that Milky Green can offer, along with its versatility when paired with other colors! This could be just one of the many swatches Milky Green could shine or help another color sparkle! We love that K+J chose a light gray, like Glacier Gray to surround Milky Green in the natural stone of their venue. The Pastel Yellow brought the soft, and feminine side and that pop of color, while Snow White served as the anchor, solid and steadfast for the others to stand on. We love muted greens!

We love  all the feels a bright green like Jasmine Green offers to us! Don’t get us wrong, we are still dreaming about our other green counterparts, but this Jasmine Green has something to offer the other shades don’t; and that’s fun, energy, and va-va-voom! This shade isn’t for the faint of heart, however. But it you’re bold enough to take Jasmine Green on, and harness it, the result may be a stunning, citrus countryside wedding.  Obviously, we channeled the untapped resource of the citrus fruits and had them be the showstoppers in this wedding inspiration design! With Jasmine Green, Blazing Yellow, and Orange Peel being such aggressive and vibrant colors, it was important we tone those colors down with a softer, muted color, such as Tropical Peach. The result? Well, it’s hard to argue with these photos! The natural greenery and the wooden tables offer texture, and served well as the soft veil over the other colors, to kind of ground them, and be the canvas for those bright colors to shine!
