As long as the engagement-ring purchase is not close to realization, men think that it is going to be as simple and easy as if they are shopping for jeans and sneakers. Sorry to say this, but buying an engagement ring is a whole new experience that has nothing to do with men’s common shopping practice, so do not let too much self-confidence blow your what is supposed to be “perfect proposal”. For example, did you know that there are a few important facts you need to get pampered with beforehand? Of course you did not, so stay tuned and prepare to savor all the little-known things that will take you to the right jewel for your beloved one.
How To Add A Pop Of Green To A Nature-Inspired Wedding
A little bird told as that green is your favorite color. Actually, rumor has it that you are a huge lover of nature to the extent that you even wear nature, eat nature and think nature. And that, that is totally perfect. People like you are a great example of how the environment, which has given so much to us, should be treasured and preserved. But, you have not told us that “the big day” for you is soon to happen and you still have not decided how to incorporate your favorite color into your dreamlike nature-inspired wedding. Here are a few Kobelli ideas to rely on.
❀ THE BRIDESMAIDS’ DRESSES ❀
Emerald Green Bridesmaid Dress
If you do not feel bold enough to wear a green wedding dress or you do not want to ruin your ever-classic dream of wearing a white princess-like wedding gown, you can have a crew of green-colored bridesmaids. Yeah, that would be an awesome idea, because white and green blend together pretty well and provide just the right dose of elegance you need. Do not forget the flower girls, they can be part of the project too. A huge plus would be if your wedding happens in spring or summer, because the look of your bridal party will beautifully match the outdoor décor.
❀ THE RECEPTION ❀
Green Wedding-Reception Décor
For a nature-inspired wedding that will be completely up to the challenge, you certainly must bring nature to your reception décor. Using greenery centerpieces is the easiest way to go and the coolest thing about it is that won’t cost you a fortune. One of our ideas is to place a glass vase filled with nicely trimmed branches of lemon leaves on each table. If “plain green” seems to lame, you can spice it up with the vivid color of your best-loved flowers, which will also add a personal touch to your eco-friendly wedding theme. More intimate wedding receptions look like a fairytale when ornamented with willow eucalyptus around a table setting of champagne or gold candles. Ornamenting the chairs with olive-green ribbons is another thing you can do when it comes to this matter.
❀ THE COCKTAIL PARTY ❀
Green Apple Ginger Martini
Great cocktails are a must-have for modern weddings and yours is going to be both modern and eco-friendly, isn’t it? Therefore, you can refresh your guests with a minty green non-alcoholic mojito and for those who want to add more heat to the party, make sure to have prepared green apple ginger martini or some cucumber lime punch. With a “cocktail menu” like this, you will take your wedding celebration to a whole new level, that is for sure.
❀ THE WEDDING INVITATIONS & ESCORT CARDS ❀
Nature-Themed Escort Cards
Quite often, life experiences show us that it is the little things that count the most and when planning a huge event like your nature-inspired wedding, it definitely needs to include a lot of little things, also called “details”. The overall appearance of the wedding invitations and the escort cards is gaining more and more importance nowadays, so make sure they are in-theme with your nature-inspired wedding. It is very probable that you already have a visual idea of how you want them to look like, but just in case, here is another outstanding one - besides coloring the paper, letter or prints in green, you can also attach a green flower or an olive leaf to each of them.
❀ THE BOUQUET ❀
Green Wedding Bouquet
The bride’s bouquet is the detail that everyone wants to see, so this is your moment to create a floral arrangement that will be a pure product of your taste and creativity. Luckily, there are many beautiful green-shaded bouquet options to choose from that will spice up your bridal look with mind-blowing natural fragrances. For instance, you can go for a fan-like bouquet of santini mums and ired gladiolus, or a sparkling assembly of cymbidium orchids, gloriosa lilies, lady's mantle and bupleurum. In case you want something more exotic, combine the dramatic allure of cymbidium orchids, leucodendron and gloriosa lilies with hosta leaves.
❀ THE SHOES ❀
Emerald Green Heels
Who says that the shoes is what a bride should care the less during the planning of her nature-inspired wedding? That is so not true, the shoes are everything! And they totally deserve to be a statement-making accessory. To give them this attribute, look for a pair of luxury heels, with or without prints (at your preference), but definitely featuring some nice texture and an aesthetically pleasing green color.
❀ THE EARRINGS ❀
Another smart way to have all eyes on you on your nature-inspired wedding and be remembered as the queen of natural beauty, is to select a pair of green gemstone earrings. Emerald, tourmaline, period, jade and green moissanite are gemstones that can give you the most out of regal green, especially if nestled in a shining white-metal setting. We understand that it is hard to decide which of these awe-inspiring gems deserves to embellish your bridal attire, so to make things easier, you can pick one pair of green gemstone earrings for the ceremony and another for the reception. Sounds like a good idea?
❀ THE BRACELET ❀
Green Quartz Cuff Bracelet
Women’s bracelets can be found in countless designs and styles, but we think that a delightful cuff bracelet is what will suit best the occasion. With this accessory you will pay a special tribute to tradition, while also having a modern twist with a green gemstone detail. Again, the selection of the precious stone is up to you, as long as it corresponds with the other pieces of your bridal jewelry.
