THE GOWN


As green brings a rustic, bohemian vibe, it's important to reflect that in your gown. While there is never rule around what style gown matches each colour, we particularly love these for our green gals. The elements of nature and botanical lace incorporate a subtle earthy element to your big day and can match perfectly with your floral arrangements. When we think of Dusty Sage, we think of ethereal silhouettes and fairy-like flowy gowns. Browse our favourite wedding gown picks for your green wedding:

THE BRIDESMAIDS


Bridesmaid gowns are easily the best ways to incorporate your colour theme into your wedding. Whether you're planning on all your bridesmaids wearing the same dress and colour, or planning to mismatch in style or colour, dusty sage and gem fabrics are the perfect way to achieve your green theme. Green suits the move from daytime to night during your wedding and will look just as gorgeous partying it up on the dance floor as it did during your sunny ceremony. These are some of our favourite OC bridal party looks:

THE INVITATIONS


The invitation is the first way to set the tone for your wedding, and importantly, hint to the guests what your colour theme is. The shades of green in your invites will probably be a big help to all your loved ones when they're trying to pick their outfits - no one wants to show up looking like a bridesmaid.

Eco friendly invitations are a big trend in 2020 and natural, recycled paper can add a beautiful boho touch to your invites. Uneven, jagged edges are the new crisp lines and wax seals are back, baby! We are loving intricate calligraphy, personalised messages, and coloured envelopes this season.


THE FLOWERS


Flowers are a fan favourite at the wedding, and one of the only elements you can keep forever (we're talking about dried and preserved bouquets!). Whether you love a structured bouquet or a streaming, wildfire concoction, you can definitely work your sage and emerald colour theme into your floral arrangements. Now, I want everyone to repeat after me: Eucalyptus is your friend! It's a staple in bouquets now, especially in our beloved Australia. Succulents and natives are also one of the best ways to work your greenery into your decorations. Think less bright green roses, more foliage, cacti, and sage toned orchids!


THE VENUE


When picking your wedding venue, imagine some key elements: inside or outside? nature or contemporary? daytime or nighttime? For this particular theme, we love mirroring your earthy colours with a nature rich venue. We're thinking sweeping trees, the sound of rustling leaves and the refreshing wind. Find a gorgeous ceremony with a stunning view to impress every guest, even the picky ones! For our rustic loving babes, a white barn would be the perfect rustic touch to add to your big day. Accessorise with pampas grass, eucalyptus and succulents to bring that nature element to you. As long as you have your flora and fauna, we're sure it will look stunning!
