I’m a bit of a color addict. Put me in front of a wall of nail polish colors at the salon or paint swatches at Home Depot and I’m a happy girl. The right color can brighten your mood, transform a space or set the tone for a picture-perfect wedding.
So when Pantone released its lineup of hues for spring 2016, my heart skipped a beat. This carefully selected palette sets the trend for all things fashion, home decor and (you guessed it) weddings!
Modern Jewish Weddings, in particular, can have extra fun in the design department with items like the ketubah or custom kippot which come in a rainbow of colors.
1. Rose Quartz — This shade has a slightly brighter peach tone than the rose gold that’s become so popular. Rose quartz provides the perfect feminine pop, but can still be understated and subtle. It’s a versatile pink that plays well with the obvious white or ivory, but could also work with a soft coral like Pantone’s Peach Echo, or a bluish lilac like Pantone Serenity.
2. Snorkel Blue — This bold and aquatic blue lies somewhere between navy and cobalt. It’s playful with a hint of formality, making it a great alternative to black which can feel too serious for spring. Flattering and fun, snorkel blue would make a fabulous bridesmaid dress color and is also worthy of style points on the invitations, programs or ketubah. Paired with bright white, yellow or green the outcome is classic with a hint of preppy.
3. Green Flash — This is my favorite bright statement color for spring. Lively and crisp, it reminds me of a freshly cut lawn just begging to be lined with white wooden chairs. Green weddings are here to stay and this sprightly shade makes a statement on a chuppah, bouquet or wedding reception tablescapes. Pair it with lighter browns like Pantone’s Iced Coffee for an earthy but modern vibe.
