Incorporating the Pantone Color of the Year Into Your Wedding
Every year, designers, producers, stylists, and other creatives across the globe anticipate the iconic release of the Pantone Color of the Year. After a 2020 filled with uncertainty and postponed wedding plans, the Sandals® Resorts and Beaches® Resorts weddings teams were especially excited to work with a fresh new palette.
And for 2021, Pantone did not disappoint. This year’s colors offer an amicable juxtaposition of Ultimate Gray and a vibrant yellow called Illuminating.
With the neutral shade of the gray balancing out the punchy yellow, couples and planners alike can effortlessly incorporate the two into any wedding style. Wondering if the Pantone Color of the Year is right for your big day? Keep reading for tips and style ideas to make it happen!
The Perfect Color Trio
When it comes to destination weddings, many couples let the natural beauty of the Caribbean speak for itself. The best part about Ultimate Gray and Illuminating is that both colors allow you to do just that.
Ultimate Gray, for example, offers a subtle addition of color that won’t take away from the bold tropical scenery. This allows for a seamless incorporation into your decor elements. Plus, gray matches just about any other color – whether it’s navy, blush, or lilac!
As for Illuminating, this shade of yellow is the perfect color to symbolize lifelong friendship and happiness. Plus, it pairs well with the sunshine the Caribbean is known for.
Sandals and Beaches Customizable Weddings Decor
The best part about a Sandals or Beaches wedding is that it is entirely customizable! This gives couples the unlimited potential to craft a wedding look that is all their own.
From the bold artistry of Modern Love to the laid-back vibes of Coastal Living, each of Sandals 10 unique Inspirations are designed with romance in mind. Plus, couples can mix and match decor elements to add their own spin on any inspiration!
If you’ve chosen a Sandals inspiration and want to feature the Pantone Color of the Year, your personal Wedding Entourage can help! Their role is to guide you through the entire wedding process, including your decor selection. Whether you want pops of yellow florals or gray table runners, they’ll be able to suggest the best options for your vision.
Inspiration: How to incorporate the Pantone Color of the Year
- Offer a custom cocktail and pair it with yellow florals. The contrast between a bright-colored tropical drink and the blooms will look stunning in photos. You can also opt for a custom wedding bar — think bright mimosas or a beer canoe filled with crisp golden ales!
- Use touches of gray, white, and silver throughout your tablescape. This toned down look will let vibrant floral arrangements and the lush scenery take center stage,
- Hang glowing string lights above your reception dinner. This will naturally add a warmer yellow look to the entire setting!
Keep in mind, you don’t have to use the Ultimate Gray and Illuminating yellow Pantone Colors of the Year together. Choosing one for your overarching color scheme is perfectly fine! Or, you can switch it up from event to event to add variety.
