Wedding Wednesday: Boho Beautiful Emerald and Mint Inspiration

Today’s Wedding Wednesday brings together two trending colors: the newly announced emerald by Pantone and mint, which made it’s premiere on the runways of Bridal Market. The two together make a gorgeous palette for any style of fete. I came across this gorgeous boho inspired mint gown and just had to base a board around it. Then, using the gorgeous emerald for the maids and in a natural woodsy setting, we end up with one beautiful bit of inspiration. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Well, I’m throwing my Pantone Emerald hat in to the ring of oh so many bloggers with similar posts this week.

The PANTONE® name is known worldwide as the standard language for color communication from designer to manufacturer to retailer to customer.” -http://www.pantone.com/pages/pantone/pantone.aspx?pg=19306&ca=10

Long story short, each year they come up with a color that they believe will transcend all aspects of design: clothing, decor, graphic, etc. This year, it’s emerald:

Here is my bit of emerald inspiration for you. Stop by tomorrow when I will have a gorgeous emerald hued inspiration board!

Tips or Trends Tuesday: Trend: Spring Summer 2012 Colors

After every fall fashion week, the color experts at Pantone release their trending colors for the following Spring and Summer. If you are a couple looking for a color palette for your wedding or for your next event and want to stay on the cutting edge of fashion and color theory, I highly recommend reading up on Pantone’s color trend reports for your color scheme. The pic below is Pantone’s Spring/Summer 2012 color trend predictions based on what they saw at Fashion Week. I have picked three of these colors and have provided you with little monochromatic inspiration boards to give your creativity a head start. Each one was searched via Google with the words “Pantone” and the respective color name. So, pick a favorite or two out of these colors and create your own little bits of inspiration.
