In the spring, tradition has it, a young man’s fancy turns to love. An appropriate introduction for a blog examining wedding colour schemes we think.
Pantone’s colour for 2017 is Greenery. Being the last word in colour, anything that Pantone does has a huge effect on all aspects of the design world. We recently wrote about the trends in wedding décor that have emerged in the wake of that announcement. Missed it? Not to worry – you can catch it here.
But what else is out there for 2017? The crocuses are out and the daffodils are dancing. Let’s see what’s hot in the world of spring and summer wedding colour palettes.
Pinterest and the World Wide Web in general are abundant with ideas but here’s a few Fab Gift Boutique picks to get you going.
From over the pond, the Magnet Street website has some interesting suggestions. Unsurprisingly Pantone and greenery get in there so let’s take a look at a random selection.
- Dapper darling: Number 1 on the Magnet Street list is the achingly cool and crisp ‘Dapper’. This fresh palette uses lime green to add a colour-pop to ever classic and classy, navy blue. This look is fabulously fresh and sartorially sophisticated. And its no surprise , you can make it POP with lots and lots of ‘Greenery’.
- Exciting and eclectic: Number 4 on this article is a palette the article calls ’Eclectic’. Think Mediterranean courtyards with cacti and terracotta and you get the idea. Super for late spring because the colours hint at the intense shades of summer: poppy pink, tangerine orange and – yup – green. This palette is both pretty and playful.
- Cool neutrals: If something low-key and au naturelle is more your preference then the ‘Heavenly’ palette will get your vote. The scheme is described as a neutral soft palette that does a great job of giving emphasis to the bright green grasses of spring, new leaves and flowers. It’s a scheme that works wonders with a rustic, classic or traditional wedding décor.
Now for a look at some suggestions from this side of the Atlantic via One Fab Day.
Greenery: well it was going to be there wasn’t it? As they say: ‘A light, bright and zesty yellow-green shade, Greenery is pretty perfect to incorporate into spring and summer weddings.’ This is a look to conjure up the lushness of the great outdoors and nature
A touch of whimsy: Described as ‘floral whimsy – a pretty pastel wedding palette’, this is a fresh look that would be perfect with a tulle wedding gown and bridesmaids dressed in lace or a floral print. Suggested flowers are dahlias, roses, peonies, anemones and sweet peas.
It’s a palette perfect for a vintage/shabby chic theme. Think mismatched china, candlesticks, vintage mirrors and ladders and you’re on the right lines.
Pop Art: Okay, to be fair, this colour scheme would work for any time of year. But we loved this monochrome and colour-pop palette so much we couldn’t resist including it here. This look is full of fun and packed with colour against black and white stripes, dots or even animal type prints.
Add sequinned cloths or glittery charger plates with crisp white linens and an abundance of floral centrepieces is the perfect finishing touch to this pop-art palette.
