It’s seeded eucalyptus.  I’d call it “dusty green”- any wedding involved person will know exactly what you mean.  Or just say seeded eucalyptus.  Those are my exact colors as well.

I would call it sage, although as you’ve found, there are a lot of different definitions of sage.

That is actually a eucalyptus leaf, so I would just refer to that green as “eucalyptus leaf green” so people would know for sure what you are talking about.

I absolutely LOVE your color scheme and that eucalyptus green is far prettier than a super greeny green for your colors!

Also, as an added bonus, eucalyptus leaves are considered filler for many florists and will be less expensive than an all over flower arrangement! 

I used eucalyptus and lamb’s ear greens with my navy dresses too and I think it looked less harsh than a super spring green tone.

Try this website, though it won’t give you the name of the color, but it will give you the HEX color codes.  And then you could probably go from there.  Good luck!

I thought it looks like seafoam when I saw it…but eucalyptus leaf green gets the point across well 🙂

Awesome colors! Love it!!

Very pretty! You could also try to find the Pantone color that most closely matches and use that as a reference.
