Pantone Colour of the Year 2019

  12 Dec 2018

Have you seen Pantone’s colour of the year … introducing ‘LIVING CORAL’.

According to the Pantone website, ‘Living coral’ “Embraces warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment”

This beautiful colour could be embraced in a wedding of any season, but would look particularly stunning in the spring and summer months. Another bonus is that the Coral colour palette includes pale pinks and peaches and therefore is super versatile – as a colour, it can be paired with metallics for a chic look or bright pops of colour for that stunning summer colour palette.

And here’s how to tie the Colour of the Year into your wedding day…

Bridesmaids – the colour, coral, is a flattering colour on most skin tones and hair colours, making it a truly perfect colour to dress your maids in. You could even have ‘mix and match maids’, styling your Maid of honour in gold sequins to make her stand out!

The Men – and lets not forget the groom and his ushers. Why not go for a coral bow tie, or hankerchief to tie the groom and his close friends and family, with the bride and her hens …

Flowers – to bring the whole colour scheme together, popular blooms such as peonies and dahlias come in this stunning tone. Salmon pink, or coral sherbet roses would add add that colour pop to your bridal bouquet, and could also be used in the corsages and buttonholes to bring the whole party together.
