The most likely scenario is that you’ve been planning your wedding for ages. You’ve put a lot of careful consideration and attention into every single detail, and you’ve spared nothing to make sure that your wedding will be perfect. Also likely is that your colors were some of the very first things that you planned for your wedding. Then, Pantone comes out with their yearly reports, and all of a sudden, you’re thrown for a loop. How will you make sure that your wedding stays on trend if the colors you chose are not apart of the colors they mention? Don’t you worry. We’ve got you covered.
The colors of spring are Placid Blue, Violet Tulip, Hemlock, Paloma, Sand, Freesia, Cayenne, Celosia Orange, Radiant Orchid and Dazzling Blue. The inspiration is said to be pairing up beautiful pastel colors with strong and revitalizing colors to give them a little bit of pizzazz. If your wedding is in the fall, though, the colors are a little different: Aurora Red, Radiant Orchid, Royal Blue, Aluminum, Misted Yellow, Mauve Mist, Sangria, Bright Cobalt, Cognac and Cypress are all taking center stage, calling to a sense of imagination that is usually not as present in Colors of the Year. If one of the colors on your palette is pretty close, then congratulations! It’s a pretty easy switch, or at least, equally as easy to at least slip the color of your choice into the palette. Luckily, there’s at least one color in here that you can absolutely incorporate into your color palette, one way or another.
Start thinking about different ways that you can incorporate it into your wedding. A wonderful way to incorporate the color that you want into your wedding is to try to incorporate it as an accent color to what you already have. Pick the one that matches the best, and make it the star of the show. The reason that it is so easy to change an accent color is because it is your pop of color, and therefore, there are few things that you have that have that color, making it much easier to make it a last minute substitution.
Don’t forget about your flowers! You may have everything a lot more set in stone, and you might be beyond the ability to substitute an accent color, but don’t fret, because you can always take the color that you want and insert it into your bouquet, which will aid you get a very fun and trendy color into your wedding photographs. It’s the little things that help you get your message across: get your shoes in the color you like best; consider incorporating the color into your invitations; you can also get your uplighting to reflect your new color preference.
But Above All
Don’t fret. Your wedding will look beautiful, even if you don’t incorporate one of the trendiest colors of the year. Make sure that no matter what decision you make, you consider how you feel about making that change first. If it will cause you extra stress, it might be best to avoid it, but if you can’t live without it, then go for it!
