Junebug’s Best Wedding Color Ideas – Black, White and Green Wedding Color Palettes for Spring!

July 19, 2011 | admin

I never tire of this bright spring color combination of black, white and green, originally featured on June 6, 2008…

Last week we received a comment from Vanessa, a bride in search of a little help with her spring wedding color palette… “I am getting married in April of 09 and I am having a huge problem picking my wedding colors. I first came up with green, black and white but wasn’t sure if that would be okay for a spring wedding. I really love green but am not sure what colors would go well with it.”

Thanks for asking Vanessa! I think that for a spring wedding, green, white and black would be absolutely gorgeous! Green is truly mother nature’s favorite color, so it goes with pretty much anything and every thing! Pairing it with white and black will look fantastic and could be appropriate for any season depending on the approach you take. For spring, I would keep the greens light and bright, like the colors of new leaves and flower buds, and use a couple of shades together. Bright grass green and lighter chartreuse would look lovely together and the black and white accents would really set it off. The black is going to add bold definition, so consider where you want to use it and in what style.

For a classic look, you could concentrate on elegance with simple black borders on your invitations, table linens and decor, sophisticated black accents in your bridal and wedding party fashion, and small green accents in light and dark shades to bring in the fresh feeling of spring.

For a casual, fun and whimsical look, use your colors in patterns like polka-dots and stripes, use bright green granny smith apples or limes in your decor, and wear funky jewelry and accessories that add to the fun.

For a more fashion forward and dramatic look, incorporate a black and white damask or large floral pattern into your decor and invitation themes, add a bold black sash to your wedding dress, and balance the dramatic with simple modern table settings and sculptural green and white flower arrangements.
