We were planning a kelly green March wedding with fresh bridesmaid dresses and tulips. However, the church we met at is booked March 5 and does not allow weddings during lent (which would be the next few weeks after this). So we pushed the date up to February 26. I am completely fine with this date, and it is very important to the fiance and I that we marry at the church we met …
However, the problem lies with can we still get away with having the very green wedding I envisioned in February?
Does anyone have any other ideas? Perhaps an accent color to tone it down? Or do you think tulips are acceptable during February?

I think you’ll be fine. In fact, I think February is a month where people are dreaming of spring, so tulips would be great.
In general though, I think accent colors are a good idea. With Kelly green, a pink or yellow would be good.

Maybe I’m biased, since kelly green is one of my favorite colors, but I actually think that it will be lovely for the end February. I would complement it with white and an icy blue, reminiscent of the lingering winter and new green of spring around the corner. White tulips would be lovely with that!

I think bright green and a light pink would look good together. And light pink would go well with the month of February.

I went to a party at the end of February and my friend had potted tulips for decor. Because it was the end of the winter, I felt that it had been sooooooooooo long since I had seen tulips and it delighted me.
They will be perfect.

I agree with the others. Tulips will be a welcomed site in February for sure. Light yellows and light blues could be pretty as accent colors.

i had the exact same problem. we wanted a spring wedding, tried for march, but it didn’t work out with the venue and rabbi so we had to push it up to late feb. i stuck to my color scheme and theme though because i loved it so much, and it turned out to be beautiful.

I don’t think there is a problem using lots of green. Kelly green and light pink is what I keep seeing in my mind. Tulips are actually perfect. They’re in season. Which completely suprised me when I started looking for in season flowers for our January wedding. I think using kelly grean is going to be beautiful for your late Feb wedding.
