The Pantone Color Institute has released it’s predictions for the top colors for Spring 2017 – Will we see these colors trending for 2017 weddings?
Pantone bases it’s forecasting on trends in fashion and interior design, and has been influencing the wedding scene as well. Pantone named Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue the top two colors for 2016, and that carried over into the wedding industry in the spring and summer months. 2016’s dominating wedding colors were undoubtedly dusty pink, mint green, and light blue, so we know from experience that Pantone’s research is pretty spot-on. An interesting note is that Pale Dogwood and Niagara are variations on this past year’s Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue – so I guess that means that these pastels are here to stay for a bit.
Pantone’s Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, Leatrice Eiserman noted that the 2017 picks are all nature-based. Indeed, the shades are often found in your typical wedding flowers and bouquets so that connection is strong.
If and when we see Pantone’s picks for the biggest, most popular colors for 2017 within weddings, we might see them like this…
A grey-hued blue is listed as “leading the pack” for Spring 2017. We might see center pieces and table settings incorporating this color.
A sunshiney hue that is very happy and cheerful. This will most likely be replicated in flowers and floral design.
This pink is reminiscent of this past year’s popular Rose Quartz. We might see this hue appear in bridal party attire.
This color was actually named Pantone’s ‘2017 Color of the Year’, and is already turning up in weddings, floral design, and event styling. Greenery is a plant-based yellow-green. This color is so easy to replicate with florals. We’ll probably see it there the most.
The neutral that I think will never go out of style. It’s an easy, popular color that we’ll likely see in linens and bridal party attire.
This bolder blue was designed to make you think of the tropics, vacation, water and the beach. We may see this color more in the winter weddings of 2017, or beach weddings.
A delightful red-orange pop of color, Flame is already gaining popularity. It has been seen on the fashion runways at NY Fashion Week, and may become a wedding color for the bolder bride.
Since Greenery has gained popularity, this veggie-inspired hue will follow. You’ll see plenty of greens in floral decor for the bride looking for a rustic theme.
This blue sapphire-y color offers a deeper blue hue than Niagara and Island Paradise with more vibrancy. It’s not easy to find in flowers, so this will likely be bridesmaids dresses.
Our last color of 2017 is another refreshing pop of red/pink. There are many flowers that match this pink, so we will see this in many floral designs to come!
If these are the upcoming trends in the fashion world, they are likely to pop up in 2017 weddings. Which ones do you think we will see?
