“Various wedding trends come and go but colour palettes never really seem to change or evolve. Our creative team wanted to present a new and exciting range of colours for spring and summer weddings, showcasing a vibrant, modern and on-trend palette alternative to the soft feminine themes that tend to dominate the wedding industry.”

   1. Rose Quartz
  This muted blush shade can act as its own neutral when paired with bigger, bolder colors like fig or emerald. Or opt for a monochromatic look with shades of pinks. Want to add a little glam? Pair with a metallic like copper or rose gold for a combo that sparkles. If your partner isn’t jazzed about pink, give rose quartz its own moment during cocktail hour with a rosé champagne signature sip.
  Pink is a classic color used in wedding decorations and the first trending wedding color in 2016 is Rose Quartz, which is a shade of pink color. “The soothing, calming nature of colors in the Spring collections are led by Rose Quartz, a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure”, by Pantone.

   2. Serenity
  This shade of light blue color will make every part of the wedding day so comfortable, just like the blue sky above us, making it a pastel color palette with peach.
  Take a cue from the name—dusty blues and greys make for one calming wedding palette. Instead of accenting this combo with a metallic, consider adding a pattern or a texture like marble into the mix. Looking for a pop of color? Try adding leafy greens to your centerpieces and bouquets—they’re a great natural contrast. Or for more of a color statement, let serenity pop against ruby red or another rich jewel tone.
 Weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, PANTONE 15-3919 Serenity comforts with a calming effect, bringing a feeling of respite even in turbulent times. A transcendent blue, Serenity provides us with a naturally connected sense of space.

    3. Buttercup

  If you’re looking for fun & cheerful colour for your wedding theme consider buttercup 1 in top 10 pantone Spring 2016 for your wedding theme. Buttercup is all about sunlight, happiness , cheer and perfect for setting the mood for a joyous occasion.
  Buttercup is a darker shades of yellow. It is an uplifting color, but it can also be a little overpowering so the key to successfully creating your buttercup wedding theme is to have just the right amount of yellow. Too much of this colour and it becomes too visually stimulating. Make sure to combine your buttercup yellow decorations with some other colors, for spring preferably ones that are a little more muted like white and green,white makes it more elegant green makes a fresh and while yellow adds a bit of fun.
  “While the majority of the Spring/Summer palette trends toward calmness, a few diversions from the theme emerge that offer a contrast. With Buttercup designers reveal a shining beacon transporting its wearer to a happier, sunnier place”, said by Pantone. I added some purple to make them a perfect match.

4. Lilac Grey
  Who doesn’t like grays? We need a gray shade in every season and here’s the Lilac Gray.
 You may be thinking, “Gray, Really?!” Gray is a mid tone neutral, which means that it is very easy to use in combination with one or more colours, and it is not as dark and bold as espresso or navy. But when you add a bright colour such as purple or yellow or even pink it makes for a very elegant and gorgeous wedding. I think this lilac gray would make a fantastic palette when combi with shades of soft purple. Once you start to think about it, you can see why gray is becoming more and more popular for weddings.
  When talking about Lilac Grey, women think of perfectionism. This color says that everything is subordinated to elegance. This shade gives a noble touch to any event and it’s reminiscent of aristocrats’ balls. From invitations to table arrangement, everything will speak sophistication.
  To use lilac gray in a Spring wedding, think about layering it into the fabrics, such as bridesmaid dresses and tablecloths. A dove gray or pewter color makes a very chic and minimalist choice for your attendants. Soften the austerity of gray by choosing a dress in a soft fabric like chiffon or organza. If you want to add a splash of colour by the bridesmaids’ faces, a great way to do this is by giving them bridesmaid jewelry in a colour like red or lime green. Alternatively, you could keep the colour palette very restrained, and have each bridesmaid wear jewelry in clear crystals. This could be very elegant for an evening wedding.

   5. Iced Coffee

  Here’s another neutral color scheme for the year 2016 and Iced Coffee can work well with almost every color. Combine this color with green to make it oh-so-natural.
  Iced Coffee is the perfect wedding color for a glamorous bride. Everything in your event needs to shine and this shade will beautifully frame your wedding. You can add small details to your wedding dress, or choose a bouquet of painted roses. In both cases, the idea is to glow!
  With its natural earthy quality, the softness and subtlety of Iced Coffee creates a stable foundation when combined with the rest of this season’s palette.
  Neutral may not be the first colour that springs to mind for weddings, but it turns out that it is an incredibly versatile color which can be used for all styles of celebrations, neutral will always add a touch of sophisticated elegance to a wedding.
  Iced coffee alone tends to lack punch, so it is often used in combination with an accent color. The colour pairing is how you will really be able to set a tone and create an ambiance for your wedding. Depending on the complementary colour which you select. If you wish to add another colour to your palette, try mixing in touches of mint for a little more cool. This will create fresh and flirty, modern and edgy. All these colours work beautifully for the centerpieces and bouquets, and will also look great for all the reception details.

 6. Peach Eco
  The fashion and design communities, and consequently, consumers, have been in love with orange for several seasons. Coming to the fore this Spring is PANTONE 16-1548, Peach Echo, a shade that emanates friendlier qualities, evoking warmth and accessibility. It is an all-encompassing, tempered companion in the playful orange family.
  Peach is a shade that emanates friendlier qualities, evoking warmth and accessibility. It will show charm and elegance and allow light to diffuse irritations angry energies. Peach promotes a feeling of calm, comfort! Great for dining or wedding party.
  If your wedding takes place in the middle of summer, no shade is more appropriate than Peach Echo. From cocktails with fresh juices, instead of the classic champagne, to bridesmaids dresses, perfectly coordinated with the specific summer tan. Peach Echo talks about pleasure and spontaneity.
  With such a romantic wedding color palette, aim for equally pretty and romantic decorations. An arbor draped with sheer blush tulle and twined with lush apricot and peach roses would be a spectacular altar decoration for the wedding ceremony.
Layer napkins in peach or grey for a contrast. Another option would be to use creamy tablecloths and decorate slipcovered chairs with peach sashes for a pop of color. That is an easy way to bring your wedding colors into the reception space without having to rent a lot of custom linens.

7. Snorkel Blue

  Snorkel Blue plays in the navy family, but with a happier, more energetic context. Such a great shade of blue to be my wedding theme color.
  “A maritime -inspired blue, Snorkel Blue plays in the navy family, but with a happier, more energetic context. The name alone implies a relaxing vacation and encourages escape. It is striking yet still, with lots of activity bursting from its undertones.”, by Pantone. Adding some chocolate brown or other neutral colors if you’re planning a chic rustic wedding theme.
Snorkel Blue is synonymous with luxury. Choose this wedding color for various details, such as table decorations or wedding dress accessories, and you’ll feel sumptuous. I’m sure that your future husband will also love this shade!
  Your wedding invitation is your first chance to set the tone for your event. The style that you choose will give your guests a sneak peek into what your wedding will be like, especially if you have a special theme. One of the best ways to personalize your wedding invitations is with a snorkel blue.

  8. Limpet Shell
  As a shade of aqua, this Limpet Shell can tell us what’s it like in spring.”Suggestive of clarity and freshness, its crisp and modern influences evoke a deliberate, mindful tranquility”, by Pantone.
  We think this limpet shell is a wonderful colour choice to use for beach wedding in Spring and Summer. The bright carefree hue is perfect for the lazy days of summer. You could combi limpet shell with pink or yellow that would make a fabulous wedding.
  There are many ways to work with this cheerful colour palette. For instance, you could have a candy station featuring clear glass jars filled with sweets in your signature colors. The wedding cake is definitely a place to showcase your wedding colours as well.
  Turquoise table linens are a fantastic option for the wedding reception. Top them white yellow blossoms in white vases as the centerpieces, and you will have a very special look. White chiavari or wooden folding chairs will provide a visual break from all of the bright colour. It would be delightful to decorate the back of the bride and groom’s chairs with a garland of turquoise paper pom poms. Larger versions of the paper decorations can be suspended over the dessert table or the guest book table for a fun effect. They are an easy DIY project, especially when you are only using them in a limited area and do not need a huge number of pom poms. The cheerful spirit of turquoise is sure to put all of your guests in a celebratory frame of mind!

  9. Fiesta

  The high energy, Fiesta is a harbinger of excitement, encouraging free-spirited exploration to unknown but welcoming locales. A strong and fiery, yellow-based Red, the vivid Fiesta provides a stark contrast to the calming, softer nature of this season’s palette
  A bold colour, fiesta is a fresh and upbeat hue to include in a spring or summer wedding.  A great place to begin with your wedding colour is the bridesmaid dresses. Along with the flowers, they will be one of the areas in the wedding in which you can make the biggest splash with colour. Fiesta looks great on many different skin tones, and definitely flatters a warm summer complexion. It is a much more forgiving shade on most women than true orange, so your bridesmaids will thank you for that. Being a summery colour, fiesta looks especially nice in lightweight fabrics such as chiffon, lace, and polished cotton.
  A tea length coral bridesmaid dress in a fluttery chiffon or organza would suit virtually any style of warm weather wedding. To keep the effect modern, opt for bridesmaid jewelry and accessories in a complementary colour which provides some contrast, rather than an exact match. Gold strappy sandals, for instance, are much more chic than dyed-to-match coral pumps, and crystal bridesmaid jewelry in black would provide just the right amount of contrast to the emphasis fiesta hue. For modern looks,the bride could wear bright lip and fiesta nail polish.

   10. Green Flash
  This Green Flash hue is infrequent as a main wedding color but really brilliant with navy blue, isn’t it?
  Green Flash calls on its wearer to explore, push the envelope and escape the mundane, radiating an openness that combines with the rest of the palette in unexpected but serendipitous ways. The popularity of this brilliant hue is representative of nature’s persistent influence even in urban environments, a trend continuing to inspire designers.
If you are planning to go green on your wedding day Green Flash could be the perfect choice. Green Flash is a soft green with bright tone. It happens to be one of the most universally flattering colours out there, which makes it a great choice for your bridesmaids. Green Flash looks absolutely beautiful, whether it is done in organza,chiffon or satin.
  If your dream is to have an outdoor wedding, Green Flash is a shade that should prevail.     From décor to bridesmaid’s dresses, this color brings balance and creates a relaxing atmosphere.
  The bride can also use a hint of green in her ensemble. One of the nicest ways to use the colour is as a sash around the waist of her wedding gown. It is a nice soft color to use against white or ivory, that won’t make too strong a contrast in black and white photographs. If you prefer to stick with an all white gown, then a silk chiffon sage sash would be perfect.
You will naturally want your bridesmaids to have the perfect finishing touches for their dresses. If you like everything to really match, of course you can choose shoes, wraps, and bags in the same color as the dresses, but there are other great options. Green Flash combines particularly well with white, silver, pewter, or gray. Silver evening sandals would look great with a green bridesmaid dress, and would be a shoe that your attendants could very easily wear again. When you are looking for the jewelry gifts for each bridesmaid, keep that same idea in mind. Bridesmaid jewelry gifts that are handcrafted of gray pearls would be gorgeous with a green dress.

  Colours this season transcend cultural and gender norms. Vivid brights give way to excitement and optimism, though quiet stability prevails in this season’s palette. For Spring 2016 there are truly no perceivable distinctions in colour choices between the men’s and women’s collections, both of which focus on a desire to breathe and reflect, then play.
