Pantone revealed Emerald, “a lively, radiant, lush green,” as its Color of the Year for 2013 on Thursday.

“Green is the most abundant hue in nature–the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, in a press release. “As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world. This powerful and universally appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors.”

Not only will Emerald translate into both fashion and home interiors but also weddings. We’ve already seen a few weddings incorporate this hue into their bridesmaid dresses, decor, tablescapes and florals, but will you incorporate this hue into your nuptials in 2013? Let us know in the poll below.

Will you incorporate Emerald into your 2013 nuptials?

Jessica Simpson reportedly plans to wed former NFL player Eric Johnson before baby number two arrives, according to Huffington Post Weddings.

“Jessica isn’t concerned about her baby bump showing in the wedding pictures and feels she has put off her nuptials for far too long,” a source told Radar Online. “Date-wise, she is thinking before next summer, possibly February or March.”

Here’s what we know: Simpson wore a strapless, lace Vera Wang gown for her first marriage to Nick Lachey in 2002. Now that she’ll be dressing for two, maybe she’ll wear a strapless, mermaid gown with floral embellishments similar to what Bethenny Frankel, who was seven-months-pregnant at the time, wore to her wedding. Or maybe she’ll choose lace again and be modest as she walks down the aisle in a capped sleeved, tulle gown.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s engagement was no surprise this spring. However, details on the couple’s nuptials have been a secret until last week, when sources said Jolie will wear a custom dress designed by L’Wren Scott.

“Angelina wanted to go with someone who is not so obvious for designing wedding gowns,” a source told Grazia. “She’s been courted by some of the hottest designers on the planet, but having a big name isn’t important to Angelina. She wanted someone she could trust, and she most definitely trusts L’Wren Scott.”

Here’s what we know: Jolie likes to make a statement and show off her figure. Maybe she’ll wear a one-shoulder gown with a high-slit and jeweled embellishments similar to what she wore to the Oscars this year. Or maybe she’ll channel her inner-Bella from Twilight with a long-sleeved gown that has a cut out back and lace embellishments. What if she decides to follow in other celebrities’ footsteps and wear a colored gown? What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
