Pantone Announces that ‘Greenery’ Will be 2017’s Color of the Year

The vivid yellow-green has been crowned as the top color for 2017 – So how will this translate to the wedding industry?

The Pantone Color Institute’s picks have proven to influence culture, fashion, trends, decor, and of course, weddings.  Each year Pantone predicts the top color that will dominate our lives for the next 12 months based on their research in determining the “mood and attitude” of global culture.

Last year’s pick was a double-whammy, with Serenity Blue and Rose Quartz sharing the title.  The pastel hues proved to be winners as rosey blush and dusty blue showed up everywhere from high fashion runways to bridesmaid’s dresses. The emergence of green was really starting to happen within the wedding industry already, but I found the hue of ‘Greenery’ to be a bit of a surprise. I was expecting a shade closer to eucalyptus or even turquoise, but I’m not one of the experts.

“Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another, and a larger purpose.” Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.

We can expect to see ‘Greenery’ as a prominent wedding color for 2017, in decor, bouquets, and bridesmaid dresses.But since it’s hue is that of the Peridot gemstone (my birthday gemstone!), perhaps we will see ‘Greenery’ turn up in more delicate forms as well, such as engagement rings, and bridal party gifts.

Pantone is labeling ‘Greenery’ as “nature’s neutral” so I guess that means that green is the new black?  What do you think of this color?

    Funny thing is pastels have been in for so long and it’s been my top wedding color pallet for a while. We’re talking going on 4 years now, lol. But when I saw this was the color for 2017 I fell in love. I think there are going to be some really gorgeous green weddings.
