How to use Greenery, 2017 Color of the Year, for your wedding in the Val d’Orcia

12 january 2017

Pantone, color trends international "guru", announced Greenery as its 2017 Color of the Year. For the Pantone Color Institute, “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”.

What does this mean for your wedding? Incorporating greenery into your colour scheme is a perfect way to tie in some lush pieces - without busting your budget.
Every wedding could use a dose of natural elements to prevent a color scheme from becoming too stale. Greenery is the perfect color choice during the spring and summer and anytime you wish to bring the outdoors in, as it immediately gives your entire wedding a fresh, joyous, and modern feel. But Greenery is also a versatile “trans-seasonal” shade that lends itself to many color combinations.

Here are some suggestions to use Greenery in a country wedding in the Val d’Orcia, in the heart of Tuscany:
