3 Wedding Palettes Inspired by Pantone's 2017 Colours
The colour experts at Pantone have selected not one, but ten “Colours of the Year” for this year’s fall season. From striking Golden Lime to warmer shades like Tawny Port, get to know these trending colours and how you can start incorporating them into your wedding.
1. RUSTIC NAUTICAL
The right colour sets the right tone and Autumn Maple is the perfect shade for a rustic wedding. Pair it with an equally earthy tone like Golden Lime and add splashes of Shaded Spruce for a cool, nautical feel. Elevate the overall palette with silver or copper tableware, inspired by the Neutral Grey shade. This is an ideal palette for couples planning a wedding outdoors, especially in the countryside or even by the sea. Blue glasses mixed with brown vases make an impact to your table setting. Is your groom feeling daring? Why not make a statement with an on-trend, navy blue suit? Brides, wear a pair of sparkly heels in silver or champagne for a glamorous finish to your outfit.

2. FESTIVE REDS
We can all agree red is a great colour for any celebration. When put together with confident Grenadine and delicate Ballet Slipper, a shade like Tawny Port is brought into a whole new dimension. How to execute? Make one colour dominant over the over, depending on your personality and wedding theme. Aside from the flowers, wedding stationery, guest favours, and even hair accessories are all great ways to let these colours shine through. For a fairytale touch, opt for a blushing pink wedding gown – you’ll feel like a princess all day!

3. DREAMY WOODLAND
A palette of light blues, greens, and taupe can work for a glamorous indoor affair or a garden party with the mountain as your backdrop. As long as the setting feels like a serene and dreamy garden, you can’t go wrong. The Marina shade stands for calmness and tranquility, while the Butterum is a comforting colour that reminds us of yummy, cinammon spiced lattes. These two colours are best broken up with neutrals like gold or ivory, or shades of green, such as Shaded Spruce and Golden Lime. Elements of texture – tree branches or sequin table runners – add visual interest. Teal drop earrings lend a vintage touch to a traditional white dress, while colour-coordinated heels are perfect for your “something blue.”
