What does a green wedding dress represent?
While there’s no specific meaning behind green wedding dresses, the nature-inspired hue does have some sweet symbolism. Green is thought to represent hope, prosperity, and good luck.
And as the color of nature, it’s also tied to the idea of renewal and new beginnings — pretty fitting for a wedding day, if you ask us!
Symbolism aside, green wedding dresses also represent a stylish break from tradition. They’re unexpected, unique, and perfect for showcasing your distinct style on the big day. And let’s be honest: rocking a green gown as you tie the knot is just plain cool!
How to Accessorize and Style Your Green Wedding Dress
Despite being a bold color choice, green wedding dresses are surprisingly versatile! And as such a unique look all on their own, they’re also super fun to style — whether you’re going for a fun and whimsical vibe or a glamorous black tie optional dress code.
To dress up a green gown, metallic and sparkly accessories are the perfect way to make that bold hue pop. Bring out the green with a gemstone necklace (we love birthstone necklaces for an extra personal touch), or go glam with a statement pair of earrings.
And since green is the color of nature, you also can’t go wrong with natural elements and nature-inspired accessories. Think: a flower crown or floral headpiece, whimsical petal earrings, or botanical green heels. Which brings us to our next FAQ…
What shoes should you pair with a green wedding dress?
Because green is such a statement color, these colorful wedding dresses pair best with neutral shoes. After all, you want your gorgeous gown to be the star of the show!
We love how green gowns look with nude kicks (for an easygoing, bohemian vibe), white heels (to tie in that traditional bridal color), and black pumps (great for formal or cold weather weddings).
If you’re looking for something a little more glam, green wedding dresses also pair great with metallic heels, like these silver platforms or these shimmering gold stunners. And we wouldn’t be GWS if we didn’t mention the ultimate shoe pairing: green shoes! Is there anything cooler than a monochrome green look? We think not.
Like the frosting on top of the wedding cake, a great pair of kicks is essential for completing your bridal look. Find your perfect pair with our ultimate guide to the best wedding shoes!
