{Pretty in Peridot} Backyard

Today we have the fabulous Erin and Jessica of "Two Wedding Belles" here to provide us with some incredible inspiration! Enjoy the first of 3 posts by Erin and Jessica using Peridot to create a wow-factor wedding day. Peridot is a unique color: a dark and stormier version of lime, with a generous dose of gold. It's a color that holds its own, but it plays nicely with others too. We took the concept of a wedding heavy on the peridot, perhaps for an August bride wanting to include hues inspired by the month's signature stone, and styled it three ways.

1. a backyard fete with a cozy feel and lots of earthy elements.

When we started out, we weren't sure if each board would be unique enough to stand apart. At first it was just a sea of green. But surely, pull in a bouquet tied with gingham ribbon here and add contoured lines of a table display there, and each concept begins to establish its own identity.

What do you think? Can you see working peridot into the color scheme at your chosen location or venue? ~Erin & Jessica, Two Wedding Belles
