After New York Fashion Week in February of this year, Pantone® announced it's hottest, trend-settings colors for the year. The colors were initially thought to be a little riskier than that of previous seasons, and many fashion experts challenged the appeal of the gloomy color combinations for weddings.
Let's see how their choices worked out: (Spoiler Alert: They were right---we panicked for nothing!)
Chosen as the Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid has certainly shown that it can work for all styles of weddings. From the garden to the beach, to the look of majestic royalty, this color continues to impress and delight.
As a primary color or as an accent, this traditional and elegant color works with many settings. Pinks will make it pop, and whites will keep it subtle and maybe even take it out of Fall and into the Winter months. But no matter the season, we will always love it.
Think radiant sparkly tones of aluminum and this color will win you over. This color will work well closer to Xmas or perhaps zest the color up with Misted yellow for September and October months.
A stunning color for Fall weddings, Aurora Red can make you feel warm and cozy with it's rich cinnamon undertones. Coupled with other bold shades, this color can work for Summer to Christmas.
A surprisingly bright color for Fall but it will certainly brighten a dull Autumn day.
Our favorite amongst the color line-up, we love this rich earthy tone and it will look gorgeous on your maids.
If you find radiant orchid too loud then this shade of pink may just be the right color for you. It s a soft elegant color that works well during any season of the year.
A great earthy tone for fall, try using this color with one of the other colors, such as misted yellow, mauve mist and royal blue.
Hot in Spring 2009, this color is making a strong comeback and although traditionally we would associate this color with summer, why not try using the look in a winter venue teamed with silver and rich fuchsia pinks.
At a first glance this color may not win you over but mixed with soft white and ivory this color will look stylish, elegant and sophisticated. Try to use this look late summer, early fall for the perfect look.
