2019 Pantone Colour of the Year- Wedding Inspiration

Pantone 2019 Living Coral Weddings

That’s right, it’s here! The official 2019 Colour of the Year will be….. Living Coral!

I love prediction trends, especially with weddings. It’s always fun to see what is up and coming and to see throughout the year, how brides like you, embrace the trends and make them your own. I’m personally a big fan of CORAL and can’t wait to see what you all do with it. Coral is a gentle nudge out of the blushes and soft pastels, its hint of orange kicks it into a bolder hue bringing us into brighter and more daring colour schemes once again. With this more energetic colour it should bring about another layer of creativity and excitement to the wedding scene. I’m looking forward to seeing how the rest of the wedding trends will follow suit.

Pantone describes the colour as “An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.”

So if you’re planning a wedding for 2019 and want to be bang on trend, be sure to add some Living Coral to your day. It you’re wondering how, I’ve got some ideas for you.

Coral Florals

Since Living Coral is all about getting in touch with nature, the perfect place to implement coral is in your wedding florals. Bouquets, floral walls or on top of your cake, Living Coral will make a vivid statement adding life and interest to your wedding flowers.

I love how a groomsmen’s pop of coral plays off the subtlety of the hue, while the bridesmaids dresses in coral really strike a bold chord. The use of them together creates the perfect example of what Pantone was describing when they said Living Coral was “vibrant yet mellow.” With beachy vibes, Living Coral is sure to set the tone for a laid back, all fun, wedding day.

Coral is a great colour for all your little details. It gives the perfect eye catching pop of colour that will draw your guests eye to all the little touches that make your day unique and special. Its a great way to add more interest to the aspects of the day that could otherwise be missed.
