One of the things to keep in mind when choosing your wedding style will be the Pantone Colours of the year. For this year, the Pantone Colour Institute has named Yellow and Grey as their colours for 2021. This is quite interesting because this is the second time in their history that two colours have been named.
The colours yellow and grey are to show the strength and resilience of couples as we all learn to live alongside the pandemic. The yellow will remind your guests of sunny outdoor weddings, which will also be popular this year. While you can use the grey as the base. You won’t have any problem combining both colours as they compliment each other very much.
When it comes to your Irish wedding, your colours will play a serious role. So, if you want to keep up with the trends and make use of the Pantone colours of the year, then feel free to do so. You may however find yourself battling to know how exactly to apply this colour in your wedding. Here are a few tips from us on having a wedding style influenced by the Pantone colour of the year.
Your altar backdrop is a great way to display the Pantone colour of the year 2021 at your wedding. Especially if you’ve chosen these colours as your wedding colours. Your backdrop would be a beautiful nod to the classy wedding style you have chosen. So, feel free to incorporate it into your other designs. You won’t forget it. Don’t love grey and yellow – interpret it to be grey and gold which work in perfect harmony as a colour palette.
You can use grey for details like your linens, chair covers, and more. The yellow can be your wedding fashion colours and will look amazing on your bridesmaids. If this is too much, how about a vibrant pocket square for your groomsmen. You can also do the same for your other wedding decorations – lemons could become a stunning focal point. Combine them with a garland of eucalyptus to create a beautifully fresh table centrepiece or display them with your table centrepiece to add a bit of fun and whimsy! You could also create little vignettes of lemons with jars of fresh flowers in nooks and crannies around your wedding venue such as on steps or on windowsills.
Sunflowers, daffodils, tulips, and orchids are some of the yellow options that you could use for your bouquet and boutonniere. You could tie them with a grey ribbon – get a beautiful silk ribbon to add finesse to your look. They’ll create a lovely contrast with your wedding dress and groom’s suit when used. You can also provide bouquets for your bridesmaids in the same colour and boutonnieres for the groomsmen too.
When it comes to your wedding style and colour palette, your bridal party fashion plays an important role. They are an essential part of your colour palette puzzle. So have your leading ladies come out stunning silver tones which is a current trend in the world of bridesmaid dresses. You also don’t have to limit yourself to just choosing a plain fabric. Play with textures and patterns however you wish.
Your wedding’s invitation suite and other elements like your table numbers, menus, name cards, and programs can represent the colours too.
