Pantone, the go-to place for color inspiration, introduced Greenery as their color of 2017.
"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."
Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the company says, "Greenery symbolizes the re-connection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose."
If you're digging this year's pick, here are a few ways you can incorporate this refreshing shade into your wedding.

Create a wall of greenery to complement your dessert table, as a backdrop for the altar, or as a background wall for photos.
Modern weddings are loving the idea of hanging flowers and greenery from the ceiling, whether it's over the dining tables or all throughout the venue space. If you don't want to hang fresh foliage, you can also use green balloons, lanterns, or paper flowers.
One of the easiest ways to add the color of the year to your wedding is through the bouquets. You can create a refreshing look by using mostly green foliage, succulents, and wildflowers. (Like Lindsey's dress above? See it here.)
Just as you might add something blue to your wedding gown, you can also add something green. Keep it simple by adding pops of color with a green sash, jewelry, or shoes. You might also dress the bridal party or groomsmen in green (green dresses, shirts, ties, socks, etc.). (Like the dress above? See it here.)
A Touch of Nature
Bring nature to your reception tables by placing leaves at each guests' seat. You can also fill the table with overflowing greenery and flowers or green candles.

Extend Pantone's Greenery to your guests by giving them a mini potted plant, a green edible (like an apple), or an eco-friendly plantable seed card.
