Emerald Green Bridal Earrings

Emerald green bridal earrings - these three charming pairs I originally found on Etsy priced at a very affordable $18 to $44. As I update this post - in the summer of 2017 - the emerald green stud earrings are the only ones listed for sale today. My favorite (shown at top) is a pair of sterling silver earrings with sparkling faceted 18 x 13 mm oval emerald Swarovski crystals. A shade of green so exquisite that it symbolizes elegance, beauty, and enhances well-being. Sadly, when I enter "Victorian emerald earrings" into Etsy's search box, I don't see anything offered as breathtakingly beautiful as the pair you see here today.

Eco-Friendly Favor Ideas

Here's an eco-friendly favor idea that is more than just colorful, cheap and charming. These plantable seed paper hearts, available in over thirty sweet colors from soft pink to pomegranate to royal purple to plum - are only eight cents each. Select a variety of colors or choose just one. These one inch hearts (100 for $13.00) make small but perfect thank you gifts that will bloom in a garden instead of taking up space in a landfill. And to leave an even smaller carbon footprint - if you choose the gray, they are made from recycled newspapers and if you select the brown, they are made from recycled grocery bags.

Green Floral Wedding Cakes

Green floral wedding cakes - each of these are a lovely pastel shade of green (emerald, sage and mint) and are a breathtakingly beautiful choice for a spring or summer wedding. Did you know green is the color most commonly associated with freshness, hope, rebirth and renewal? The cake that steals my heart away is featured directly below, with perfect hand sculpted sugar paste flowers - pale cabbage roses, oversized pink peonies and green hydrangea blossoms. Small fondant dots surround each layer like a string of lovely vintage pearls and makes this wedding cake almost too unforgettable to eat.

Pink Peony Bridal Bouquets

Pink peony bridal bouquets - I love your lush, full rounded blooms! Because peonies are at their most exquisite beauty in late spring or early summer, these gorgeous pink blossoms often symbolize female fertility and are highly regarded as an omen of good fortune and a happy marriage. Always one of the most popular wedding flowers, expect to pay as much as $10 per stem in March, three dollars less in the peak wedding months of April through June, and then back up to around $10 in the months of July to September. Pink peonies are most affordable than white and because of their unique size (from 2 to 10 inches in diameter) you may need only a few stems to create a breathtakingly beautiful pink peony bouquet.
