Bridesmaid Guide: Everything is Coming Up Emerald!

We know the old saying goes that "everything is coming up roses" but from where we are standing rose has nothing on lush, lively emerald. The hue has lit up high-fashion editorials, runways and red carpets recently and we think it might just be a perfect addition to your wedding day color palette.

The thing that makes green, and emerald in particular, so great is that it looks good with nearly every skin tone. From ebony to porcelain dark, earthy green makes skin shine. It is also a great compliment to brunette, blonde AND red hair. Not to mention it's just a beautiful shade that can be mixed and matched with other greens and can really help accent colors pop!

Some of our favorite combos for decor are emerald and gold, emerald and lavender and emerald and navy (for serious drama). Emerald also allows for really fun, festive and out of the box floral combos. If you want your botanicals to be in the spotlight, this shade is the absolutely the prefect backdrop.

But let's get back to the basics of what got us hooked on this rich green... dresses and gowns! Some of our favorite finds are below.
