    Green happens to be my favorite color too. So I am biased when I say GO FOR IT! It looks good and if they really don’t like it then they can choose to have a different color for their wedding. I think it looks great.

    We are using the same colors for our wedding (although my green is a little bit lighter than yours), and I got a little nervous today after finding an olive green/orange combo that was waaay to camo for my comfort! But after seeing your beautiful pictures, I know I was on the right track! Thank you!

    I would call that emerald, not hunter. Honestly, when I hear “hunter green”, I think “bad cabin interior from the early 90s”. They may be having the same mental picture. Show them your beautiful inspiration boards, and call it “emerald”, and they’ll be on board ;-).

    This is the exact color scheme I was thinking for my fall wedding. It’s nice to see it in visuals, thanks!

    Love it. We’ve decided on green as our wedding colours. If you love the colour then stick with it. It’s your day.

    I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man in hunter green before. Nothing wrong with it.

    I’m doing “hunter green” too. With the JCrew dresses, it’s called “monterey pine”. I had the SAME reaction from everyone when I said I wanted to do dark green, but I realized everyone has very different ideas of colors and until they see a pic or a swatch, they will not be able to visualize it. Some were thinking it would be more olive green or camo green, others expected emerald green with more blue-ish tones in it. 

    For what it’s worth, I think your board looks great and it’s a good idea to share that sort of thing to help people “get it”. My BMs went into our appts not very interested in dark green but once they saw themselves and each other in alot of the other strange shades that Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses come in, everyone was suprised by how much they felt the dark green was extremely flattering. It looks good on blondes and brunettes, and various skin tones, and can also be quite slimming. I think they all saw it as a dress they would be more likely to wear again than like a light pink or something – certainly a holiday dress option!
