Each year Pantone releases their spring color report, and these color trends play a leading role in the fashion world. Their predictions always have a huge influence on wedding trends and decor as well. Pantone's 2017 report included a mix of light pastels, bright colors, and cool and serene hues, most of which are reminiscent of colors found in nature. Two colors that stood out the most in this year's line up were different shades of blue and green. We are sure to see these colors incorporated into many wedding themes in the year to come.
We have to start with "Greenery" because Pantone chose it as their color of the year! This vibrant hue awakes our senses and makes us feel one with nature. As described by Pantone, "Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore, and renew." From natural and vibrant centerpieces to bouquets full of cascading greens, this refreshing citrus will be a must-have for both spring and summer weddings!
Kale is a dark, earthy shade of green. Both the name and color give us a sense of a healthy lifestyle. "Just as we see in nature, this lush and fertile natural green shade provides the perfect complementary background to the more vibrant tones in the palette." Just as Pantone mentions, this shade of green can be the perfect accent color for any wedding theme, but don't be mistaken, this color is bold enough to stand out on its own.
Lapis Blue is a bright and energizing hue. Pantone describes Lapis as "strong and confident". On the wedding spectrum, we think Lapis Blue is such an intense color that it will make its appearance in a bold way this wedding season. Bridesmaids dresses, statement heels, table linens, tuxedos...we can't wait to see this striking shade of blue make its debut!
Pantone has chosen Niagara from their 2017 report as the most prevalent color for spring weddings. It is a denim-like, dusty blue, reminiscent of rippling ocean waves. Its cool tone emits a serene and calming effect. Pantone claims it "speaks to our desire for ease and relaxation." Niagara is elegant yet whimsical. From spring to fall, this versatile shade is ideal for any season.
