This year, wedding color palettes take on a whole new meaning. As 2020 was a year that will not be soon forgotten, 2021 is shaping up to be the year that brings us hope. As far as colors go, that means bright yellows and steely grays. We’ll be seeing these combinations in everything from fashion to home decor, and definitely in wedding palettes. Here, the wedding experts from Rose Hill Weddings have described the color choices for the year and outlined just a few suggestions for how to incorporate these hues into your 2021 wedding.
Pantone Color of the Year
The Pantone Color of the Year has been announced and this year, two colors have been brought together to show the strength and hopefulness we’ve all shown during such a difficult time in our world. Ultimate Gray is paired with Illuminating, a bright yellow full of promise. Together, these colors create a powerful statement of standing rock solid while remaining warm and optimistic. Use these colors in your wedding for everything from bridesmaid’s dresses and tuxedos, to sunny flowers and accents.
There are so many beautiful yellow flowers to choose from for your wedding, and many are available for a large part of the year. Their sunny cheerfulness and bold hues will brighten every occasion, so why not include them on your most special of days? Choose rich, buttery yellow tulips, lilies, or roses for a sophisticated wedding bouquet. Carry sharp yellow pincushion protea, starry yellow daffodils, or frothy golden chrysanthemums for a sassy, spunky look. Opt for big bold yellow sunflowers, sweet yellow daisies, or fun yellow craspedia for a cheerful, happy style. No matter which yellow flowers you include, the bold color choice will inspire and uplift your wedding guests.
The creative options for infusing shades of gray into your wedding palette are simply innumerable. From rustic weathered wood on picnic tables, barn doors, benches, and chairs, to smooth gray beach rocks and sand. Incorporating gray will be a fun endeavor. Bridesmaids can wear the same shade of gray while varying their dress style, or add touches of gray ribbons, eucalyptus leaves, and natural stone throughout your wedding decor. Table linens, floral accents, and wedding party attire can all reflect the beauty of Ultimate Gray while providing a fabulous backdrop for the bright yellows of your flowers.
The beauty of uniting a deep, thoughtful Ultimate Gray and a forward-thinking, inspiring Illuminating yellow will wow guests and family alike. Make your wedding the talk of the season when you infuse your special day with this awe-inspiring pairing.
