We once had a client thank us and thank us because it was in our pages that she finally found the green wedding jewelry she was looking for. Why was it so hard? Consider that green has more than one meaning. Green weddings are all the rage these days, and we’re not talking about color schemes. We love the environment as much as anyone, but we definitely get that it’s no longer as easy as it once was to find green wedding jewelry – when you’re not specifically on the lookout for conflict free stuff.
It did not escape our attention that St. Patrick’s Day came and went this past weekend. Inspired by all of the Irish pride – and wannabe Irish pride, too – we found ourselves thinking about green wedding jewelry and how it can be incorporated into a wedding that’s green. As in, color scheme… though when you’re going green, why not go all the way?
Here are our picks for green wedding jewelry, along with some fun ways to pair it with bridesmaids’ dresses, flowers, and shoes. Our bride? She’s wearing a white Lela Rose bridesmaids dress (beautiful and economical!) with our Jamie olive green bracelet. Her maids are wearing a similar light olive and carrying peach bouquets for an unexpected burst of color. They’re wearing our Sadie olive and gold drop earrings with a striking pairing: stacked bracelets… the Jamie and our vibrant green bracelet. Everyone’s wearing beautiful olive satin shoes, but all in different styles to avoid too much matchy-matchy.
Now that’s what we call going green! But like we said, our hypothetical bride could take her scheme and make it a theme with eco green touches like invitations made from 100% recycled paper, a local, organic, vegetarian reception meal, donations to a rainforest preservation charity in lieu of wedding favors, local wedding flowers, and recycled gold wedding bands.
