Lucky in Love with a Green Wedding Dress

lucky in love

Happy St. Patty’s Day! In honor of our favorite color here, we are posting some fun green ideas starting off with a gorgeous green dress! Shannon + Tom are engaged and planning a wedding in Steamboat Springs Co this July. Their engagement session with this green vintage dress is the perfect inspiration for bringing some green into your wedding – with a green dress.

From Heather (the photographer) “We brought in this incredibly old mantle and just like in a home, added sweet little vases with assorted flowers to add a little spring color and pop against our brown, fall-like background. My mom let us borrow (from her vintage clothing collection – Memory Lane Fashions) the amazing kelly green, chiffon dress from the 40s. If fit Shannon with perfection! The fur stole was a must – it was chilly!”

  15. Jen! Thank you for featuring our shoot! I just love it and feel so lucky today. :)
    All my best,

  16. My parents were married in 1976. My mom didn’t want a massive wedding, and opted for something a little less formal. She wore a light green formal dress instead of a wedding gown, and I think it was perfect!

    I’m getting married in August and my wedding is very DIY. A friend gave me her wedding dress and said I could do anything to it. I actually wanted to try and dye it pale aqua, but that would be a HUGE undertaking and I just don’t feel confident in my abilities. Instead, I’ve tea stained some lace that I”m using as a top layer.

  17. love this every little bit of this shoot!!

  18. Beautiful shoot- I love the green dress!

  19. Beautiful photos… I just hope that fur shrug is faux fur, not the real thing

  20. So beautiful green wedding dress, looks fresh and a very sexy

  21. Thank goodness for this entry! I’ve been thinking of wearing a green wedding dress and having my bridesmaids in ivory/cream and this solidified that for me! Gorgeous :)
