5 Reasons Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year is Wedding Perfection

What is the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year?

Pantone 2017’s color of the year is Greenery. The chartreuse-like shade is a long way from last year’s dusty duo of Rose Quartz and Serenity, but we’re thinking the revitalizing hue is just what we all need right now (and it could be a breath of fresh air for your big day, too).

Will you consider working this timely color into your wedding? Here are five reasons to go Greenery:

1. It symbolizes the start of something new.
According to Pantone, this fresh shade represents new beginnings, making it the perfect pick as you begin your happily ever after. Also symbolizing vitality, it’s an energizing choice for your soiree.

2. It plays well with others.
Yes, green is nature’s neutral, making your color palette possibilities pretty much endless! If you’re looking for inspiration, take a peek at Pantone’s suggested pairings, featuring brights, pastels, and even metallics.

3. It’s trans-seasonal.
Pantone defines this hue as “a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew.” But while it’s certainly a springtime stunner, it’s a year round pleaser!

4. It’s a natural choice.
This vibrant hue reflects “flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors,” and encourages people to “take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.” On the big day, it’ll bring the outside in, or bring the outside to life.

5. It’s so right now.
Everything cool is coming up Greenery! Focus on oh-so-on-trend succulents, moss, and oversized leaves, instead of traditional flowers. Or serve up a matcha signature cocktail (dubbed “A Perfect Matcha,” of course)!
