Eau De Nil Colour Inspiration

Green Wedding Themes – The Beauty of Eau de Nil

One of the prettiest shades of green is eau de nil, translated from the French to mean ‘water of the Nile’. As its name suggests, it is a truly beautiful, soft green colour, with a hint of yellow that also has pale blue undertones. It is also a gentle hue, that is a subtle way of introducing a pretty green into your wedding theme.

Eau de nil is quite versatile and can be used easily alongside other pastel shades. For example, this colour goes very well with pale pink. You could mix the eau de nil of Eucalyptus and Olive leaves with the palest of pink roses. You could even add Gypsophila and Love in the Mist to soften the flowers and add a romantic element. Eau de nil works really well in natural surroundings as it is found throughout nature, so it is perfect if you are planning to have your wedding in a garden setting.

This colour is also very flattering to wear; for bridesmaids and pageboys, the eau de nil shorts go well with the pale pink sashes and buttons. The groom and his party can match eau de nil ties with pocket squares and to complete the look, you could try adding eau de nil or pale pink ribbons on little pails for confetti bearers. This detail is simple and sweet, but very effective.

For the table decorations, you can create table centres with large bouquets of eau de nil, pink and white flowers to make beautiful statement pieces that are also soft and delicate and have handwritten place names in matching eau de nil ink.

A gently iced cake can be adorned with Eucalyptus leaves and little pink roses to tie it in with this pretty theme.

Featured below is our eau de nil stationery set which has a pretty eau de nil floral motif tumbling down it. So from the moment your guest receives their invite, they will be enchanted by your beautiful wedding theme and look forward to seeing what is to come on the day.

So why not try eau de nil when putting together your green wedding theme ideas and see what other little details you can come up with using this most pretty of all the green shades?
