As you may have guessed by the title of this post, this year for the first time, two colours have been chosen as the Pantone Colour of the Year: Rose Quartz and Serenity. As the company says:
“Joined together Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.”
We’d agree that connection, wellness and a soothing sense of order and peace are all good things to have at your wedding, right?
So what do these new colours mean for your wedding? As they have been in years past, Pantone colours have been popular choices to incorporate in weddings, from colour themes to little details like flowers and favours for guests. What are some ways you can use these gorgeous shades in your wedding? Read on…
- Engagement photo shoot: These colours look SO great together, so why not incorporate them in your engagement photo shoot? If you don’t want just these two, Pantone has a great list of colours that would complement Rose Quartz and Serenity.
- Invitations: What better way to let people know that your wedding is one not to miss, than by using the Pantone colours in your invitation?
- Dresses: More and more people are opting away from traditional colours like white for their wedding dresses. Pick Rose Quartz or Serenity for yours, and you’ll have no trouble at all with choosing dresses for your bridesmaids. These colours really do flatter everyone, so why not even try them out for your groomsmen?
- Jewellery: It’s easy enough to incorporate these colours into your jewellery for the day, from earrings to bracelets to rings. Something blue, anyone?
- Flowers: I think we can all agree that both colours of the year would look gorgeous in a bouquet and in floral arrangements around the venue! You could also give them to the men to tuck into their lapels if you’d like.
- Bridal shower: In case you’re not too keen on the idea of planning your wedding around Rose Quartz and Serenity, both would work as great colours for a bridal shower! From flowers to decor to even registry items, you can definitely incorporate these colours as much or as little as you’d like into your shower.
- Desserts: I personally love how decorative desserts at weddings are, and I’m not just talking about the cake! The fact that these colours are soft and soothing means that they’re palatable, too!
