In 2016 Pantone introduced two colours for the first time together, Rose Quartz and Serenity. Together these colours combine the balance of warm rose, and the tranquility of the cool blue that creates a feeling of peace and compassion. This colour combination in weddings creates romance and unity of the two colours together.
But that was 2016.
The colour that Pantone has chosen for 2017 is.. drum roll please… Greenery.
This colour is symbolic of spring and new beginnings. It is a return to nature, and is nature’s own neutral colour. Aside from references to spring, Greenery also is a colour that is life-affirming, vitality, and the pursuit of personal passions.
So what does this have to do with weddings?
It doesn’t have to mean anything to you, but you can expect to see more of this colour in wedding magazines and on Pinterest and other social media accounts with people sharing pictures that include this greenery colour. You can expect to see this green colour incorporated in ties, bridesmaids dresses, wedding cakes, sweet tables… the possibilities are endless.
If this colour speaks to you the way glitter speaks to us, add greenery to whatever your heart dreams up. If it’s not your thing, no need to panic, you can keep your colours (who said you follow the trends anyway right?), and go on your married way (see what we did there?)
