Emerald Bridesmaid Dresses


I gravitate toward soft pinks and deep blues any day of the week, but since green has never really appealed to me much, I wasn’t too excited about Pantone’s choice for the color of 2013–emerald. It wasn’t till I started looking for emerald gowns that I began picturing a winter wedding at a gorgeous cathedral, complete with a bride carrying a vintage muff, a groom in a sharp black tuxedo, and bridesmaids in deep emerald carrying white bouquets full of texture (maybe something like this). And well, emerald grew on me a little :) Here are a few emerald dresses I’m loving for bridesmaids or party guests.
