Chartreuse is one of those colors that you either love or hate. Ranging from mellow yellow to a neon green, chartreuse is all over the runways this season to the delight (or chagrin) of trend followers everywhere. I adore chartreuse in all its varying hues so when I started seeing the color popping up in the wedding world I was giddy.
Chartreuse is not for the faint of heart bride! It’s bold, brash, and in your face. But, that doesn’t mean this color is a one-pony. You can pair chartreuse with a range or colors – some muted, some just as bold, to create looks that range from feminine and classic to modern and minimalist.
Grey + Chartreuse
Paired with grey, Chartreuse conveys a modern, ethereal elegance. If using a bright shade of Chartreuse that is on the greener end of the spectrum, stick with more muted grey tones to avoid a heavy, dank palette.
Navy + Chartreuse
Perfect for a vintage barn wedding, navy adds a calming feel to the vivid and modern chartreuse. By incorporating textures such as burlap, denim, and shantung you can create a warm, inviting atmosphere that says refined and rustic rather than musty cowboy.
