A soft silvery green that is a colour close to nature – the Australian bush, a pebble on the beach, lichen on a tree branch, dried moss on a rock.

– For an autumn wedding think natural combinations of twigs, dried grapevines, berries, black and green grapes, pewter, bleached wooden tables and accessories, sage green table runners and napkins on burlap cloths, sage green bridesmaids’ dresses with chocolate sashes, twine, birds nests with brown speckled eggs inside glass domes

– Keep your colour scheme fresh by introducing white and lots of different greens to your décor. White flowers, green flowers, and different greens in leaves can be your starting point to a light spring like feel. White furniture, white cloths and crockery set off with sparkling glassware, glass candlesticks with white candles, sage green dresses embellished with dark green crystal hair clips, dark green shoes, the same dark green sash on the bridal dress, sage green ties with pale grey suits for the men

– Pale blue and green hydrangeas, in glass vases on a pale blue tablecloth. Over cloth in pale sage organza beaded in blue. Bleached wooden or white furniture, a garden wedding, big bunches or pots of hydrangeas everywhere, maids in soft blue dresses accessorized with sage green – think ethereal, think floaty and summery

– White broderie anglais, white daisies, muslin squares tying up green sweets, satin or patterned grosgrain ribbon, old fashioned velvet flocked flowers, old silver ware

– Lilac agapanthus, green chrysanthemums, orchids, peonies, roses, hydrangeas, berries – green, red, purple, pale grey leaves, daisies, succulents, conifer branches and cones

– A lolly bar with lollies of every green imaginable in glass jars or milk glass white containers

– Birds or butterflies in sage green patterned Japanese paper hung in cascades from the ceiling

– Try stripes, polka dots, paisley or checks in sage green on a background of off white, cream or white as overcloths and napkins. Mix and match patterns to add interest. Flowers in white, with pale grey leaves, white tablecloths, white chairs, white crockery – keep everything else simple
