I love just love color and every aspect of putting a wedding scheme together. Below are Pantone’s most popular colors predicted for Spring 2011. A lot of these are favorites that I saw in many of my 2011 weddings. For 2011, purple and green was a favorite among my brides for Spring and Fall and by far the most used color scheme. I also saw a lot of the grays, dusty pinks and the still ever popular turquoise. I don’t think turquoise is going anywhere for awhile.
I am very excited to see what color schemes my brides come up with year. Here are few color combinations I put together with the 2012 projected color trends. I am noticing an new trend among my brides of having more than 2 colors in their schemes, which I think is awesome. Some have had up to 4 or 5 colors in their pallets.
My predictions for 2012:
Gone our the traditional black suites. I think we are going to see a lot of grays, browns and kaki. Your going to see a lot of mason jars, milk glass, burlap and cute DYI wedding projects. Vintage, Shabby Chic colors and themes are here to stay for at least another couple of seasons. Yellow is my favorite new color to think about for 2012. It is vibrant, happy and will give a pop to any color palette. I also love that it can be used successfully in any wedding theme: modern, retro, vintage and shabby chic. Here a few examples of yellow color pallets for 2012.
