Each December for years Pantone has announced a color of the year. This color has a mass impact on everything from products to fashion to paints. Pantone also releases wonderful color pallets that compliment the color in different ways. So how is this applicable to weddings? Well actually, quite a lot. Bridesmaids dresses, the “in” decorations, flowers, all base themselves off of this color. For example, this year trends in wedding flowers are leaning towards lots of greens and foliage and less flowers.
Pantone Color of the Year for 2017 is Greenery. My first impression of this color, honestly, was a bit of a Yowza. It’s a beautiful color but very bright. However, I found that once I examined Greenery Color Pairings it put me at ease. In my opinion this color is a wonderful pop against colorful, but muted, tones. I found that while some of the pairings had multiple bright colors, many of them matched the Greenery with tones that contained greyish undertones – which I love! I’m so excited to use the Analogous color pallet. I’ve got a wedding theme that fits it perfectly in my mind! Unfortunately, it will have to wait until spring hits in Wisconsin to give it justice.
Also, I must admit I’m dying to see what designers come out with this year. I’m ready to rock these vibrant colors! And I can see some extremely fun event themes and floral arrangements coming soon. It is a good year to be a florist. I’ve been thinking I may try my hand in flower arranging and take advantage of it.
I encourage you to check out Pantone’s Color of the Year. The website is a lot of fun if you like colors!
