Just as everything else in weddings is evolving, so are wedding colors. A decade or two ago couples would stick to one or two wedding colors and leave it at that. Rather than choosing a single color, today, couples are opting for comprehensive wedding pallets and color schemes that can truly evoke a certain mood or ambience for your event.
Having a variety of shades of color looks great throughout your wedding. If you repeat the same color everywhere, it’s not as visually pleasing. Creating a strong color palette will combine four to five colors, including the tones of design elements.
It can seem overwhelming to decide what colors to put together. In your selection, choose a variety of colors that include neutral, dominant and accent colors. Discover creative tricks to see different colors that pair naturally together, like looking to different shades of lipstick or inspiration from nature.
Colors change with each season, requiring our focus to shift to relevant trend forward palettes each year. Pantone® is one of the best color resources for your wedding design. Their forecasters select palettes for fashion and home interiors each season.
Each December they also announce the Color of the Year, which is the hue they feel most impacts the industry. They’re great at sharing the upcoming color trends that can help you choose the best colors for your wedding. For 2019, Living Coral is Pantone’s Color of the Year; vibrant, yet mellow, this color embraces design with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.
Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity; it embodies our desire for playful expression, optimism and joyful pursuits. Representing the fusion of modern life, coral is a nurturing color that appears in our natural surroundings and at the same time, displays a lively presence within social media.
