pantone-2016-1

This year Pantone chose the blending of cool and warm in Serenity and Rose Quartz for the 2016 color of the year. This color combination represents balance and harmony as the warm tones and cool tones merge together to become one. We can’t think of a better way to symbolize the joining of two individuals in marriage! Use these two colors in your wedding décor this year to represent your beautiful union.

There are unlimited ways to make use of the Pantone color of the year in your wedding. Use rose gold containers or votives for a glam or vintage look in your wedding. Layer tulle in both shades on chair backs or pew décor. Create beautiful lush bouquets in rosy hues of rose quartz and tie them off with ribbon in serenity blue, or mix flowers of shades of each color. Flower walls are huge this year in wedding décor, create the beautiful blending of rose quartz and serenity by making an ombré flower wall with flowers that range from one color to the other and all the periwinkles and lavenders in between.

Blue & Purple Winter Wedding ~ Brittany’s Inspiration Board

Brittany writes: My wedding is in December. It’s going to be simple but elegant. My bridesmaid dresses are dark purple (grape from bridal gallery). I was thinking of having purple and blue but can’t find a whole lot of ideas. I originally was hoping to have calla lily’s but that’s not a must have.

Love the colors! I used a bouquet that I think is stunning and has a winter’y December feel. Made up with hydrangeas and anemones in various shades of blue and purple (this way you get all the tones) and green grey greenery. The soft green leaves makes for a winter perfect bouquet. I know there aren’t calla lilies in this example, but they go great with hydrangeas and we offer them in both purple and blue if you’d like to add them! You could even swap out the anemones for the callas.

Peacock Quinceanera Party ~ Rachel’s Inspiration Board

Rachel writes: I am not having a wedding. It is a quinceanera for my daughter. The date is set for November 15, 2014. The theme is “Peacock”. colors are light blue, lime green, purple, royal blue, accent color is gold. The main flower is the Calla Lilly, but I am not sure what other flowers would go with the Calla since it is such an elegant flower, just by itself is gorgeous. I do have the peacock feathers to go with it. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Love these colors!  Although we picked a bouquet for your board – the arrangement can still be used for a centerpiece design, and all the items in it look great with calla lilies. You can either add callas to this mix, or swap out the roses. Add a gold vase and some purple table decor to tie in all the colors.

Orange Wedding Flowers ~ Meghann’s Inspiration Board

Meghann writes: My wedding is on November 29th at a historic mansion. Our colors are navy and orange. The bridesmaids will be in navy and the groomsmen in gray suits and a navy tie with thin orange stripes. My dress is in an off-white. Because of our location, I want a vintage-feel to my flowers. I was thinking that because our wedding party will be wearing a lot of navy, my bridesmaids could carry a bouquet of orange (and maybe off-white) flower and I could do mostly orange, with some white and blue.
