Pantone 2017 Color of the Year & How To Use It In Your Wedding

One of my favorite parts of planning and designing a wedding is putting the color palette together. I love working with unexpected colors, and I treasure the time I get to spend with the couple learning what they are attracted to and making it new and fresh.

Pantone is the world’s foremost color expert. They have just released their 2017 Color of the Year – Greenery. This rich green tone stands out beautifully on its own or complemented with neutral hues. Surprisingly, it can really show its appeal when added to other color palettes. It truly is a versatile color!

Elevee Events had the privilege of working with Katy and Mike on their 2016 fall wedding. The bride wanted a Blush and Gold color palette; probably one of the most common wedding color combinations of 2016. I threw in a handful of accents in Greenery, and the bride was blown away. That one little addition made a stunning difference to an otherwise common color palette.

Aside form Greenery, Pantone also releases their top color choices for each season.

Their Spring 2017 collection is full of beautiful greens and blues with a pop fun colors, including pink, orange, and yellow. There are also several gorgeous neutrals thrown into the mix.

Every one of these colors pairs perfectly with Greenery, and can create a beautiful color palette no matter what the season may be. Lapis Blue and Greenery make a bold color choice year-round. Pair Greenery with Flame and Primrose Yellow to create a vibrant summer wedding combo. Flame, Greenery, and neutrals make a warm, fresh fall color palette.
