Pantone Colour of 2018 – Ultra Violet

The trend predictors at Pantone have announced their prediction for the 2018 colour of the year and it is…
(drum roll please)
Pantone Ultra Violet

… Ultra Violet!  Pantone is calling it a “dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade” that “communicates originality, ingenuity and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.”  A very bold and vibrant choice after what was known as nature’s neutral; 2017’s Greenery.

Ahead of the trend, Cheryl + Travis used shades of purple in their fall 2017 wedding.

Pantone Colour of 2017 – Greenery

Greenery is fresh and organic, bright and revitalizing.  It’s been announced by Pantone as their pick for 2017.  It is symbolic of new beginnings, therefore the perfect addition to add to your wedding colour palette!
Greenery Wedding
Greenery bursts forth in 2017… Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature.”  said Executive Director of Pantone, Leatrice Eiseman.  It’s a bold departure from last year’s combination Rose Quartz and Serenity.

Last summer a few of our couples such as H+B incorporated a lot of actual greenery into their weddings because Birch & Bunny couples are trend-setters!

Rose Quartz + Serenity: Pantone Colours of 2016

Every year, fashion designers and event planners alike eagerly await a certain exciting announcement.  The trend predictors at Pantone announce their predictions for the Top 10 Colours of the year as well as naming a single much anticipated colour of the year.  It is really a self-fulfilling prophesy though, because industry professionals accept this prediction as a fun challenge, and come up with new and exciting ways to showcase this colour.  Hence the trend prediction often becomes a trend setter.

For the first time ever, Pantone’s colour of the year trend prediction is actually a combination of two colours; Rose Quartz + Serenity.  A move that they say “Challenges traditional perceptions of colour association” transcends cultural and gender norms and is calming, all about balance.    The others listed in Pantone’s Top 10 Colours of 2016 are Iced Coffee, Fiesta, Green Flash, Limpet Shell, Snorkel Blue, Buttercup, Peach Echo and (my fave of the bunch) Lilac Grey.

We’re still all about 2015’s colour Marsala, and just between you and me, we may have found an excuse to play around with this gorgeous wine coloured hue, so stay tuned for an update on that!

What do you think about the Rose Quartz and Serenity pairing; Love it? Or leave it?  I decided to create a Pinterest board dedicated to the tranquil colour duo.

Do you plan to incorporate Rose Quartz + Serenity into your 2016 or 2017 wedding theme?  We would love to see how!

Pantone Colour of 2015 – Marsala

Marsala Macarons

 

Marsala has been announced as Pantone’s prediction for the colour of the year for 2015.  Compared to last year’s color Radiant Orchid, this year’s colour is a much more rich hue.  It’s deeper and pairs well with metallics.  **Just between us darling, that’s a little clue as to a certain wedding inspiration styled shoot that I may have in the works!

Will you be incorporating this rich wine hue into your wedding colour pallet?  We’d love to hear from you!

Pantone Colour of 2014 – Radiant Orchid

Pantone Purple

Radiant Orchid has been announced as Pantone’s prediction for the 2014 colour of the year!  It’s bright, and cheery, and it’s not just for spring! This shade pairs especially nicely with dove grey or with summer colours such as greens or a sunny lemon yellow.  Fall and winter Brides can mix with metallics or muted tones if they feel this shade is too bright for their colour scheme.

“An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality” An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.
