First off, Happy New Year!
And yes, you heard that right...Pantone (the leader in all things color) has chosen the color for 2011-- and its a shade of pink!
So, how can you apply this pink to your wedding?
It's simple, you can introduce this color in your bridesmaid dresses, linens, paper items and flowers. Dresses in this actual color are available from The Dessy Group who works directly with Pantone when designing their dress colors. You can also play up this pink in your tablecloths, chair ties or napkins (but keep it to one of these items--too much pink CAN be a bad thing!) Your wedding paper items can be mounted to pink cardstock or printed in pink ink. And let's not forget your awesome pink flowers--try ranunculus or dahlias to soften things up with a modern twist.
Not sure what to pair your pink with? Here are some pink pairings and palettes that could make for a wonderfully coordinated wedding:
Pink & Gray
Pink & Taupe
Pink & Olive
Pink, Yellow & Brown
Pink & Cream
Pink & Burgundy
Pink & Aubergine
Pinks & Apricot
Pink & Aqua
So are you won over by Pantone's top color of 2011?!
