striking emerald and gold wedding ideas

Jewel tone colour palettes are hugely popular in the world of weddings – particularly when it comes to Autumn and Winter celebrations. My favourite jewel inspired shade I must admit is emerald – it’s luxurious, opulent and incredibly decadent. Although emerald works beautifully throughout the year, pair it with gold and you’ve got yourself the perfect Winter colour combination.

It’s very easy to incorporate elements of emerald into your bridal outfit, while keeping it chic and understated. Our Emerald Elegant Earrings will add a dash of colour to your aisle style and our golden Enchanting Dream Tiara is guaranteed to look glamorous. Emerald green wedding shoes are a fab alternative to traditional white bridal shoes, particularly if you’re wearing a tea-length gown.

Your groom can get involved with emerald wedding clothing too! Plush velvet emerald jackets will look striking – and your groom will stay warm when it gets colder in the evening. If your hubby feels wearing an emerald suit is a step too far, he’ll look handsome wearing an emerald tie and buttonhole. A pair of emerald socks will look fun too!

Let’s talk about your best women! You’ve got a couple of choices when it comes to choosing bridesmaid outfits for your ladies. Emerald gowns will look divine – but why not dress your maid of honour is a sparkling sequin golden number? Alternatively, a mixture of emerald and gold dresses will fit in with the colour scheme flawlessly.

When it comes to wedding bouquets and flowers, I suggest using a lot of greenery and wild foliage. The latest trend for wedding bouquets seems to be ‘the wilder the better’ and I love this style of blooms. Focus on a variety of green shades using eucalyptus, evergreens and even rosemary to create your bouquet. Looking for something a little more sparkly? Simply tie a sequin golden ribbon around the stems of your bouquet. Why not add a mini antique gold photo frame to the ribbon – you could use a photo of your loved one for a personal touch.

There are so many ways you can use emerald and gold details to dress up your wedding venue. Even if you have a super simple wedding venue – this gorgeous colour palette will create the day of your dreams. Glittering gold table cloths, golden plates and cutlery, antique gilded candelabras – they are just some of the ways to add a splash of gold to your day. Work in emerald elements by using green table stationery, napkins and chair covers.

This theme is the perfect choice if you’re planning a gorgeous Winter wedding with a hint of glamour.
