Wedding Trend Color Highlight: Grayed Jade / Minty Green

Pantone recently announced the 10 top colors of spring and summer 2013, which include balanced neutrals such as Dusk Blue, Grayed Jade, and Linen as well as the light and bright shades of Emerald, African Violet, Nectarine, Poppy Red, Lemon Zest, and Tender Shoots.  Pulling both the neutrals and brights together is the anchoring color Monaco Blue.

You will see these colors everywhere- from jewelry, to clothing, to home decor and furniture, to paint colors.  They will also be prominent in 2013 weddings, from bridesmaid dresses, to invitations, to favors, to linens, to flowers and other decorations.

Today, we are going to explore how grayed jade will be utilized in weddings throughout the year, especially in Spring & Summer 2013.

My favorite color and gemstone to pair with minty green is purple amethyst.  For my wedding, I paired minty green with a nice bright purple amethyst for all the bridesmaid and flower girl jewelry, it looked beautiful and romantic.

    Hi Crista, where did you find that wedding dress? I’ve been scavenging the internet for an hour and I can only find this dress on your blog! Any help (designer, past website you found it on) would help greatly!
    Thanks, Emily
