I hope everyone had a wonderful time over the holidays and is excited for the start of a New Year!  After the end of a long semester, I decided to take a break from True Blue Wedding for a little while to spend time with family and friends.

There is no color us lovers of the outdoors cherish more than green (and blue of course)!  This year, Pantone named Emerald the color of the year for 2013.  Emerald is rich and bold and is one of the most flattering of jewel tones.

If you’re having an outdoor wedding, there will be tons of green all around you, so emerald on it’s own may not be what you’re looking for.  Luckily, there are so many combinations of colors that emerald works well with.  Here is a list to give you some creative inspiration!

Emerald and navy are classic and clean.

Emerald and other jewel tones.  Think magenta, midnight blue, or amber.

Emerald and peacock feathers.  Pull out colors from the peacock feathers to accent other factors of your reception.  The peacock theme will work well with invitations and centerpieces.

Emerald and other shades of green and yellow are a fun and bold combination.  Shades like chartreuse and lemon can bring out the beautiful colors in nature.

Emerald and white create fresh and clean elegance.

Emerald and lavender are simple and fresh.  Lavender looks great with any rustic decor as well.
