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

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. 

Gather inspiration

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.

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. 

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.
