–       Teal lends itself to a starkly elegant look, or a softer more ‘woodsy’ look. Here’s how:

Add into a black and white palette – teal glassware, silver candlesticks with white candles, white cloths, teal runner down the centre of the tables, white crockery, white flowers, soften with touches of pale teal in dessert bowls, favour boxes tied with darker teal ribbons, and subtle beading on the teal table runner – for an elegant look

For a ‘down in the woods’ look, add greens into your palette with pale grey. Look at tablescapes of moss, lichen, twigs, pebbles, fern fronds, votive holders made of silver birch tree trunks, set on oval mirrors to reflect the scene back to your guests. Add watery teal tablecloths, pale grey crockery, brushed stainless steel cutlery, an entrance of small trees and ferns to create a woodland path, bleached wooden furniture

–       Hydrangeas (think all white, or varying shades of blue, or their white/lime green hues), orchids (think oranges, pinks and saffron yellow blooms), all white flowers, green chrysanthemums, daisies (for an understated simple look) fern fronds, succulents

–       Peacock feathers/motifs

–       A simple white cake with filigree, polka dots, monograms, or old fashioned lace work piped in pale teal graduating to dark teal

–       A seaside wedding featuring teal, Sweet Apricot  and Watermelon for a different take on the usual blues and greens

–       Choose a fabric with a vintage feel featuring teal and build your wedding décor around this

    This color is great … but what is the CMYK or RGB or Pantone reference?

    I’ve looked at what is considered “teal” for websites, and it is greener – and this shade is bluer.
