One of the richest colours in the collection, Emerald was translated from the Sanskrit as the colour of ‘growing things’ and therefore has been interpreted as the colour for successful marriages. This is a meaningful colour with a rich history and symbolism. Added to which it names one of the most desirable gemstones you can find. Its powerful clean lines work best when set against the starkness of ivory but it is the emerald which is the star of the show.
We like the oriental take on Emerald using orchids and blossoms with emerald ivy leaves.
This is a great colour for a Winter wedding and can take rich fabrics such as taffeta and velvet. Pageboys in velvet shorts with emerald taffeta pleated sashes and bridemaids in long sleeves ivory taffeta dresses with pleated sashes compliment grooms in emerald taffeta ties with packet squares.
For table decorations use green or clear glass bottles and jars with ivory roses, orchids or blossom and ivy running down the table centres with emerald coloured glass gemstones scattered amongst them to catch the light. The Emerald stationery has a simple ivy motif on each side on an ivory background which symbolises friendship and continuity.
