Pantone explained why they chose these two colors….

“As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent. Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.

The prevalent combination of Rose Quartz and Serenity also challenges traditional perceptions of color association.

Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.”

As you’re designing your wedding decor and picking out colors, these two beauties are appealing in all finishes and can be combined with greens, purples, rich browns and all shades of yellow and pink. You can also add in silver or hot bright colors for more of a wow factor and of course, sparkle!

Will you be using these colors for your upcoming wedding? I’d love to hear about the details and see it all come together. Check out our services to see how we can help you with your wedding planning needs.


2015 Pantone Color of the Year

Pantone announced their 2015 Color of the Year!

Drum roll…please…


Pantone calls it “a red-brown hue named for the Sicilian wine. Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal, while it’s grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.”

I’m all for anything that resembles wine! 😉 I’m very excited about this color and just love the bold & richness to it.  I think it will look quite stunning in just about every season here New England, but it will especially for a Fall or Winter wedding!

Haven’t picked your wedding colors yet? This could be it! Add a cream or yellow as a secondary color to make it pop! OH, the choices we could have fun with! 🙂
