As we end of another week we’re in for a treat, since today’s wedding combines both greenery (this month’s theme, after all!) and a trip to tropical Mozam for a gorgeously intimate oceanside bash! Michelle and Jacques picked an elegant beachy resort for their destination-I-do, filled it with green foliage and crisp white linens (and a touch of smart navy) and then threw a fabulous party under the fairy lights and the stars. And today we get to be their special guests, thanks to these lovely pics by Marne Photography!
Hello friends! I’m back after a few days off last week dealing with behind the scenes business stuff that desperately needed my attention (when will I learn I can’t do it all?) And I’m super excited to share this gorgeous shoot with you today, not just because it’s filled with light and Pantone Greenery-esque detail, and hello, a bright orange gin bar! I also get to introduce you to Emily Allan of PeppermintPix who is seriously just the sweetest. She joined the SBB Directory recently, and I have been dying to show off some of her lovely work. How better than with this organic garden party-style inspiration?

Our theme this month is greenery, with a special reference towards Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2017, also called Greenery. And of all Greenery wedding details I’ve seen so far (apart from actual greenery, obvs) I think the prettiest use of this colour has been in stationery. I mean, it’s such a bright, fresh green that it really catches the eye and looks amazing against both a crisp white and a rustic Kraft background, whether paired with a traditional or modern font, and of course, with plenty of pretty greenery illustration. So I’ve been squirreling my favourites away to share with you for a few months now, and whether you’re using this colour in your wedding design or just want to add a touch of natural, minimalist style to your stationery, I think you’ll fall in love with these paper pretties, all created by the makers at Etsy.

Happy new month, lovelies! We’re easing into a new editorial theme for this month, and I’m super excited to be covering everything green, greenery and especially Pantone’s Colour of the Year, also called Greenery. It’s going to be a month of serene greens! And we’re starting it off with this sweet bridal shoot from the wonderful Vicky Bergallo Photography and her team, which captures the lovely feeling of a long summer afternoon, dear friends, and gorgeous boho fashion. We’re also more than a little in love with the sweetly delicate stationery details, which perfectly complement the florals, and the relaxed ambience (not to mention the scene stealing flower girl!). The inspiration, according to Vicky, was “a lovely afternoon at Salt + Stone boutique venue, feminine boho dresses, and light and airy photos!” Let’s get our green on!
With a new year comes a fresh colour of the year to play with from the folks over at Pantone and while some years I’m not completely on board with their choice (cough cough Marsala), I am ALL about Greenery, the 2017 COY. It’s fresh, it’s bright, it’s organic, and it feels absolutely right for this brand new year. I can’t WAIT to see what all my favourite wedding pros come up with in styling this shade over the next few months, but in the meantime, I had a play around and came up with five palettes incorporating Greenery, as well as several of Pantone’s other Spring 2017 shades. The great thing about Greenery is that it combines into classic choices, but can also substitute for the greens in less obvious palettes with a really fresh effect. For example, we normally see blues combining with soft sage, but use Greenery and you have something pretty and new. The key thing is to use Greenery as an accent colour – a whole wedding in it might be overwhelming, but in clever touches (especially those using actual greenery), you’re winning. Which is your fave?
