Fern Wedding

Monday, November 13th, 2017

The Pantone colour of the year this year is Greenery which is a lovely fern green sooooo…… I took inspiration from this colour and created a Fern Wedding inspiration board on Pinterest.

My Fern- Greenery board  is pretty diverse it features lots of fantastic inspiration for wedding cakes with fern decorations, botanical wedding stationery, wild boho fern hair accessories, grooms button holes, various shades of green nail polish, delicate fern jewellery, fern table centrepieces as well as organic bouquets.

I selected a few of my favourite inspirational photos and have created these mood boards for you.
