It may be the holidays but wedding and fashion trends are looking toward spring. Pantone, the top authority on color, released it’s Fashion Color Report for Spring 2015, “This season, cooler and softer color choices with subtle warm tones follow a minimalistic en plein air (in the open air) theme, taking a cue from nature.” One of our favorite things about these top 10 colors is they mix and match with each other very well. We are also very proud because our couples have been trendsetters as they have showcased these top ten colors.
From Pantone: “Aquamarine is an airy blue with a dreamy feel. Cool and calming, ethereal Aquamarine is a shade with a wet and watery feel. Open and expansive, this restful blue also acts as a stress reducer.”
A lovely and light color for bridesmaid’s dresses, Aquamarie pairs well with pinks, pastels, gray and almond.
From Pantone: “Even though a cool shade, the vibrancy of Scuba Blue adds a splash of excitement to the palette. Scuba Blue offers a feeling of escape as it is reminiscent of a tropical ocean. This stirring and energizing shade takes us off to an exotic paradise that is pleasant and inviting, even if only a fantasy.”
We love the Scuba Blue because it is bright and playful. Think about pairing it with yellow, pink, or orange.
From Pantone: “Lucite Green is a soothing green shade whose time has really come again. Fresh and clarifying, cool and refreshing, Lucite Green has a minty glow. Light in weight and also in tone, Lucite Green seems almost transparent.”
A classic and vintage color, Lucite Green, is a refreshing and minty tone that complements tangerine and toasted almond. It is also a great color for accents in florals, centerpieces and invitations.
From Pantone: “Reliable and thoughtful, Classic Blue inspires calm, confidence and harmony. Serving as an anchor to the Spring/Summer 2015 palette, Classic Blue is a shade that is strong and reliable. Just as with the sea, because of its waterborne qualities, this Classic Blue is perceived as thoughtful and introspective.”
Classic colors are always a great base for any color palette, Classic blue is no exception. Pair it with bright, bold colors or use it as the signature color for your big day.
From Pantone: “A sun-tanned neutral, Toasted Almond offers comforting warmth and is indicative of a spontaneous spring, summer feeling. Timeless and versatile, Toasted Almond is an organic shade that speaks to authenticity and all that is natural.”
Light but handsome, Toasted Almond is perfect for a day time or outdoor affair. Pair it with Strawberry Ice for a soft, romantic feel, Aquamarine for a lively combination or Marsala for elegant affair.
From Pantone: “Aptly named, Strawberry Ice is suggestive of a cooling and refreshing delicacy, yet its warmth as a color is quite appealing. Both tasty and tasteful, Strawberry Ice is a confection color that evokes a feeling of being “in the pink,” emitting a flattering and healthy glow.”
A romantic fairy-tale is the dreamy color of Strawberry Ice. Pair it with Glacier Gray for the complete look.
From Pantone: “Spontaneous and gregarious, Tangerine is a juicy orange shade that is energizing, yet not jarring to the eye. Versatile Tangerine is striking enough to stand on its own and adds vitality to a printed pattern. Good natured and friendly, but with a tangy edge, this fun-loving color invites a smile.”
Orange is back with a refreshing citrus twist. Mix it with blues, pinks or yellows for a bright a lively occasion.
From Pantone: “Just as the name implies, Custard is a delicious and delectable yellow. Sweet and sunny, Custard is a cheering tone that brings thoughts of pleasant relaxation and comfort food. Engaging with its soft and mellow warmth and full of good feelings, subtle Custard has an affable and easy disposition.
Creamy and light, Custard is a wonderful complement to the spring season colors. This couple used it for an aisle runner providing a whimsical pop of color. Pair it with blues or greens for color combination inspired by nature.
From Pantone: “Sensual and bold, delicious Marsala is a daringly inviting tone that nurtures; exuding confidence and stability while feeding the body, mind and soul. Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this robust shade incorporates the warmth and richness of a tastefully fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots point to a sophisticated, natural earthiness.”
Used on the fondant ribbons around each layer of this wedding cake, this earthy wine tone is a confident color that provides a great base tone for your wedding. Aquamarine, Toasted Almond, Silver or Gold are fitting accents with Marsala.
From Pantone: “Glacier Gray is an unobtrusive gray that contrasts and enhances; bouncing off other shades without taking away from them as it slips into the background to allow other colors to take center stage. Nature’s most perfect neutral, Glacier Gray is a shade that is timeless. Quietly assuring and peacefully relaxing, Glacier Gray, is above all, constant.”
Glacier Gray is a lighter tone in the gray family that gives a natural, relaxing shade reflective of pebbles by the lake. Commonly used for groomsman suits like this wedding but can also be used as the color for table linens or centerpiece accents.
