Colour of 2016 from the Pantone Color Institute

Choosing colour is a major component and one of the key decisions for the majority of weddings. You might love some and despise others but within the wedding industry and world of weddings some colours are more popular and more fashionable than others.

The Pantone Color Institute based in New Jersey, USA have been forecasting colour trends and providing colour inspiration since the 1950s. Since 1999 they have been choosing a “color of the year” which is usually announced early December following the release of the PANTONE FASHION COLOR REPORT at New York Fashion week in September each year.

Last year we saw the sumptuous Marsala MarsalaColour2015
and in 2014 it was Radiant Orchid RadiantOrchidColour2014

For the first time two shades have been chosen as Pantone Color if the Year 2016, they are:RoseQuartzSerenityColour2016

This is what Pantone say about the two colours:
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.

So to help inspire you if you wanted to use the Pantone pairing I have searched for some ideas to kick start your venue décor and wedding theme ideas. Take a look at my latest Pinterest board.
