Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.
What are your thoughts on this color? Personally, I love the jewel-tone quality and richness of the hue. It is a big change from last year’s color of the year, Tangerine Tango, but a welcomed one, I think. Here is a little inspiration board to get you thinking about Emerald for your upcoming wedding or event!

I can’t get enough of the delicate detailing of Sarah Seven’s Spring 2013 Bridal Collection. Typically traditional beading and lace are combined with fresh silhouettes to create a collection boasting modern simplicity. The designs are quite feminine without appearing to puffy or overdone. See a few of my favorites below.
