A new year means a new Pantone Color of the Year. Were you waiting on the edge of your seat to find out what it would be or did you just realize that UltraViolet is so last year? I am not even sure when this started, but it’s fun to see what color is selected each year as the “hip” new color and it’s even more fun to see how that influences trends. In the wedding industry, we see the impact and in all honesty, coral has been in style for the past few years. I imagine it will continue to show up in wedding day color palettes for quite a while. So whether you’re a trendy gal of just like the feminine (but not pink) hue, there are some gorgeous coral options for your florals and bridesmaids.
Coral Charm Peonies are both coral and charming. These wonders of nature are in a word-gorgeous. Spring Brides are lucky enough to get these lovelies in season. Here they make quite the statement when paired with paler pink Peonies, blue Scabiosa, white Lisianthus and mixed Eucalyptus greens. So, so pretty. (Dandelion House Floral Designand LindseyYocker)
I really love how the coral florals pop in this bouquet. Gathered with white Roses and Panda Anenomes, this look is clean and sophisticated. (AZ Fleuristas and J.Colony Photography)
Remember you can always dress your best gals in coral and they can carry coral bouquets. This tone-on-tone look is delightful and all those pretty ribbons add even more feminine flair. (Wrenwood DesignandLibelle Photography)
Here’s that amazing Coral Charm Peony again, this time gathered with pink Roses, yellow Ranunculus and mixed greenery for a bright and colorful bouquet. (Wrenwood Designand Libelle Photography)
There are alternative coral flower options if Peonies are not available (or if you don’t love them). Coral Orchids are phenomenal and look brilliant with peach Stock, pale orange and pink Ranunculus and yellow Roses. This is truly a stunning bunch of blooms. (Sweet Blossoms and Blair Roberts)
Coral combines nicely with soft pink and orange and looks striking with turquoise dresses. The soft green-blue of Dusty Miller foliage pulls the whole look together. (Unique Boutiqueand Owl and Fox Studio)
A lovely line up, indeed. These coral bridesmaid gowns are flowing and fabulous, perfect for a formal wedding. Simple, sweet bouquets compliment the color and style perfectly. (Florals by Patricia and Patricia Cleavenger)
If you’re planning your wedding palette, consider coral. It is a vibrant, happy color that can work in any setting. Pair it with black and white for a more formal look or mix it up with yellows and brighter shades for a lively look. Coral and navy blue is my all-time favorite combination using this trendy “new” color. Have fun and happy planning.
Thanks so much to all the photo contributors and floral phenoms.
