Green Wedding Inspiration for 2013: Emerald

Need some wedding color inspiration? Why not go green? In case you hadn't heard, Pantone (the "global authority on color") deemed this year's color of the year emerald.

Wedding-wise, emerald is a vivacious addition to your color palette. The shade is associated with growth, renewal and prosperity, as well as healing and unity.

And who doesn't love an emerald, really?

The beauty industry is taking note too. Pantone and Sephora are teaming up to offer the Sephora + Pantone Universe 2013 Color of the Year beauty collection. Debuting March 2013, the collection will be exclusive to Sephora and feature all things emerald.

Thinking about including emerald in your wedding-day palette? Here are our favorite picks from the "Green Wedding Inspiration Gallery" for accessories, invites, beauty products and more.
