Finish off your look by picking out accessories that will match the precise shade of green of your dress. Metallic gold or copper look great on deep olive and dark green. Silver can be fabulous on pastel mint, especially on a v neck dress. Blush and peach tones and sparkly crystal decorations are universally flattering. And a good old pearls jewelry never fails!

As for shoes, a pop of color like pink or yellow will undoubtedly make a statement. Rose gold is another surprising choice that will be stunning with green cocktail dresses. For a more modest appearance, opt for a monochromatic metallic or nude hue.

In terms of the beauty, a soft and romantic look should be the ultimate goal to soften the drama of the dress. A loosely wavey or a scenic bun that is decorated with fresh flowers or an attractive hairpin will do. A soft pink cheek, eyes that are smoky in a subtle way, and pink or nude lips is all you need, to look like a real beauty!

Finally, green is a truly multi-faceted and influential color in terms of choosing the color scheme of your wedding dress! Considering the number of beautiful tones and silhouettes available, you are almost guaranteed to come across an emerald green dress that will make you feel like a goddess. Who says the bride has to be in white? The only fashion “rule” on your wedding day is to choose the outfit that makes your heart sing. That is what a green wedding dress does – masterfully, memorable, and practically magically, turning it into a unique formal evening gown.
