Eight Emerald Wedding Ideas

Emerald might be the official birthstone for May, but you don’t have to have been born this month to saturate your wedding celebration with the deep, rich shade of green. The color has an inherently earthy quality thanks to the abundance of it in the Great Outdoors—from beachfront palm trees to manicured gardens—which makes an emerald wedding feel particularly timeless.
