Planning a Dreamy Jade Green Wedding

It’s the middle of the year, and all of us in Singapore are trying very hard to fight the sticky humidity and crazy rain that plagues our shores. While for fashion’s sake, I wish we had the four seasons to enjoy, there’s no denying the fact that being right smack on the Equator, we see beautiful colours all year round. Nature thrives on our kind of weather, but I’m really not about to start having a Science lesson.

The word green comes from the Old English word grēne, which means “to grow”. I can’t think of a better colour to signify the new relationship all couples will begin to nurture after their wedding. You may have been dating for three months or 10 years, but getting married should still exhilarate and excite you. After all, you did pledge to grow old together, so make the most of the first steps into the rest of your lives together.

Green may not be the first colour that comes to mind when you think of weddings, but think about it: it’s a free colour theme. It’s everywhere you turn in Singapore! I’m featuring a opulent, gorgeous Jade green that looks refreshing in the day and ravishing in the evening. If you’re having a dreamy, garden wedding, this shade of green can still be formal and suitable for a beautiful wedding. For an evening banquet indoors, use this jewelled tone to your advantage by making use of wedding stationery, decoration and the expertise of your florist. I’m sure they’ll be thrilled to create something unique for you. As a guideline, green is complementary to purple, so think of Jade green with sapphires and amethysts; I can already think of several wedding themes with that information.

If you’re still thinking up a wedding theme, or already are having a garden wedding, why not consider Jade green for a unique and lively colour. Follow our Pinterest board for more ideas or email us with yours!
