Choosing a wedding color doesn’t have to be stressful anymore, even if you want to infuse color combinations considering all the color jargon such as magenta, burgundy, mellow yellow, fuchsia pink, baby blue, midnight blue, teal, alpha orange(lol).
You should check in with Pantone, they are the authority on color schemes for all occasions and most especially, weddings.
I should warn you, this is not going to be your usual read and it is going to be sprinkled with my interjections here and there. Don’t blame me, I am like a child holding a new toy, and this color palette I am about to share with you, I also find them very fascinating. I think Pantone has outdone itself this year.
The Pantone color institute has set the ball rolling for couples by introducing inspiring color schemes for 2019.
The first they have named
Love in Bloom
A combination of fuchsia red, rolling my eyes. Who came up with these adjectives anyway? earthy green, silver metallic tones, and soft shades. ‘Love in bloom’ is an innovative approach to romantic love, so Pantone says, and it’s recommended you blend with red pops of dried cherries and other fruits. ‘Love in bloom’ portrays comfort, enjoyment, affection, and contentment.
Gold! Not my favorite color but, I love how it brings out the appeal in any arrangement. Warm neutrals in this palette offer the opportunity to incorporate one of 2019’s most popular, texture trends, such as pampas grass,
Believe me, I am shocked. I never knew grasses wore pampas as well. We learn every day, yeah?
and natural colored wheat grass, that pairs well with minimal florals.
The addition of pale and copper metallic acts as a highlight, enhancing, and further increasing the palettes organic and unconventional appeal.
The lost paradise has now been found, yippee!
Inspired by the tropics, this palette is a mixture of illuminating oranges, vibrant teals, radiant blues, and a refreshing splash of turquoise reminiscent of water and sky.
Whoa! Are these descriptions even legal? Believe me, if you go through without incorporating any of these color schemes in your wedding you will bring down the wrath of the color gods. We are in an age where Colors get more exquisite names than humans.
Stroke of Midnight
Stroke of midnight offers dark shades of twilight blues and exotic, red infused purples. Twinkling whites along with clean, and cool metallic add sheen and sparkle, providing an incandescent glow to this cutting-edge, collection of colors. This palette blends well with velvet, which is the 2019 linen of choice.
There you have it. Don’t be a Madame Rose Weil on your wedding day; ensure that your attendees leave your wedding awe-inspired to try out some fresh color palette at their events too.
