When you are planning a wedding, inspiration can come from many different places. Some brides browse wedding magazines, others search Pinterest – and some wait for the annual list produced by the Pantone Color Institute which reveals the hottest trending colors of the year.
This year’s color trends represent a little of everything – pastels and brights, neutrals and jewel tones, all across the color spectrum. Here is a quick synopsis of the can’t-miss colors in 2017.
The 2017 Color of the Year is Greenery (seen above). This yellow-green shade expresses the vitality and renewal of spring and is a perennially popular shade for weddings due to its simplicity and crisp beauty. Two complimentary colors are Hazelnut, a rich and earthy neutral, and Kale, a dark and lush green evident in foliage.
Pale Dogwood is a subtle and romantic shade of pink, perfect for classic and vintage floral displays. By contrast, Pink Yarrow is a hot neon shade that is fun, energetic and the center of attention. Primrose Yellow is a cheerful addition to the list, adding sunshine and optimism to wedding florals; while Flame is a vivid orange that exudes fire and heat. When arranged together, these trending colors combine to make a bridal bouquet that is dramatically stunning.
This year’s color trends also include three shades of blue, each contributing a different ambiance. Blue Lapis is the most brilliant, Niagara is relaxed yet alluring, and Island Paradise is a cool tropical aqua. Blues can be designed with greens, oranges, yellows and pinks, each with stunning results.
