Chartreuse Wedding

A chartreuse wedding is a chic and trendy color that will leave some naysayers ‘green’ with envy (sorry, couldn’t help myself with that one!). Chartreuse is a color halfway between green and yellow that was named so after a French liqueur called Green Chartreuse. Later, the French invented another colorful liqueur (don’t you just love the French?!) called Yellow Chartreuse. Either way, this edgy color would make for a show stopping wedding palette.
