Planning An Emerald Green and Gold Wedding Theme: Tips For The Perfect Day (2024)


Wedding venues on Peerspace typically cost $160 — $280 per hour.

Embracing an emerald green and gold wedding theme? If you want to make your wedding day unique and memorable, choosing a one-of-a-kind color palette is an awesome way to do it. Emerald green is the color of verdant forests, rolling green hills, and sparkling emeralds. Gold makes us think of rich ore veins and royal jewelry. Put them together, and you’ve got a stunning color palette that’s equal parts regal and lush.

Is it any wonder that emerald green and gold wedding themes are trending? To help spark your creativity, We at Peerspace offer our top tips to capture this gorgeous color palette at your wedding. As the largest online marketplace for hourly venue rentals, we at Peerspace strive to connect people like you with the amazing spaces that bring your most important moments to life.

Before you dive into wedding planning, you need to have a foundation. Fire up Pinterest and make yourself a new board for the occasion. 

Gather photos of weddings that rock a green and gold wedding theme and add them to your collection. How do these couples incorporate the palette into their day? Do they use vibrant green leaves in a bouquet or golden candelabras and napkin holders at a reception? Keep track of the design and decor choices that speak to you and reincorporate them into your own special day. 

Of course, you’re not limited only to what’s been done before. Anything that fits the vibe of your theme belongs on your mood board. Do you love those close-up images of emerald ore or a sparkling gold tiara? Go ahead and add it to the mix! You never know how that might spark your creativity later on and lead to something magical.

Scouting for wedding venues can be one of the most stressful aspects of wedding planning. It’s a good thing that you’ve got Peerspace on your side. If you’ve never heard of Peerspace, think of it as an Airbnb for events, only you book your venue by the hour instead of by the night.

You could filter your listings by their prices, size, amenities offered, and even their overall style. Plus, you can search by keywords like gold and green and browse the results. 

Venues that we’re in love with for an emerald green and gold wedding theme include: 

A Tudor Castle with enchanted gardens in Boylston, MA

Featuring six acres of gorgeous lush lawns and manicured hedges, this one-of-a-kind event space (pictured above) screams “wow factor”. It is a literal castle built in 1919 in a Tudor Revival architecture style that helps create a grand and whimsical vibe. Plus, the gold accents throughout the home and the verdant greenery outdoors help you capture your color scheme without any extra effort. 

A Rustic and Historical venue in Moosup, CT

This unique banquet hall venue helps combine the best of both modern and rustic design styles. The outdoor setting has plenty of vibrant greenery for a spring or summer wedding, while the indoor dining hall sleekly combines historical architecture with a clean and neutral palette. It’s the perfect blank slate for your creative design sense! 

A Europen-style garden and glass conservatory in Sierra Madre, CA

This gorgeous European-style garden boasts tons of lush emerald green plants and rolling grass. The central glass conservatory looks like it belongs in a Victorian picture book. Plus, there are plenty of cozy and adorable nooks and crannies for photos. 

Luxe and chic event space where memories come to life in Katy, TX

We love this versatile and stylish event space in Katy, TX for all of its amazing features. It has space for 100 guests, which is ideal for most mid-sized weddings. And while it is an all-white, blank-slate type of venue, the host includes 20 tables and 100 chairs in the hourly rate, which come in an array of colors of your choosing.

As you can see in its pictures, other Peerspace users have opted for white and gold chairs, while decorating their tables with fresh plants that bring in the emerald green color. With a venue like this, it’s easy to decorate to suit your theme while still ensuring plenty of personal touches that speak to you and your partner’s personalities.

You could keep an eye out for venues that already incorporate green and gold into their designs, like these. Or keep an eye out for spaces with neutral palettes and use your own decorations to bring the theme to life! With Peerspace, it’s easy to locate and rent venues that match all of your preferences.

The right decorations can help give your venue an extra touch of personalization and help you upgrade the theme Try to work with your venue to complement the existing color palette and design style. If there are already plenty of lush tropical plants at your venue, try decorating with gold artificial flowers or embellishments to bring a gilded sparkle into your decor. 

As an example, we love the tablescape in the photo above. It was part of a wedding held at this stunning historic downtown 1920s hotel in Astoria, OR that you can book through Peerspace.

Alternatively, if your venue already has plenty of gold in the overall design, bringing in vivid green plants could help you add lushness to your venue. Plenty of plants come in lush and vivid emerald shades, tropical plants especially. 

Beyond flowers, don’t forget about fabrics, like the drapes on your wedding arch or the tablecloths at your wedding reception. Even little touches on your table spreads, like golden napkin holders or vivid green napkins, can help you sell the color scheme. It’s all about the details!

Your venue is only one piece of the puzzle. You can also carry out your emerald green and gold wedding theme through the members of your wedding party. 

Have bridesmaids wear dresses in emerald, or ask groomsmen to style metallic gold ties. If you don’t want to go as bold with a bridal or groom look, golden jewelry can help add an elegant touch, like a delicate sweetheart locket or a wristwatch. 

Don’t be afraid to think outside the box and express yourself here!
