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.
Even though having a flower girl is optional, including one of your favorite little ones is always a nice way to make them feel a part of your special day. Of course, not only is her main job to look adorable and happily make it down the aisle, but also scattering floral petals along the aisle. Instead of having your flower girl carry a basket of petals, here are three alternative smaller bouquets you may want to consider:

We gave you five ways to incorporate succulents into your summer wedding decor, but we are seeing this trend continue into the fall, especially with any gray, navy blue or yellow weddings. Why? Because succulents are eco-friendly and inexpensive. And did you know that they are available year-round? From your bouquet to your favors, consider adding succulents to your wedding. For more inspiration, check out our arrangements with succulents photo gallery.
For those eco-friendly couples-this garden styled shoot is perfect inspiration for your wedding. We love how it stands out with its vibrant colors, fresh produce and vintage ceremony decor. Not to mention the fun wedding exit bikes. Take a look at why this couple is “mint to be” in every aspect.
