New Year - New Colors

Inspiration Board.

No one understands color better than the people at Pantone. Every year they make their predictions for what color trends we can expect to see in the following year. Whether it is fashion or home interiors, the style makers tend to pull from this palette. So this is a great place to start when you are choosing a color scheme for your wedding. Now just as I've mentioned before, these are merely guidelines to start with. You can play a bit with color saturation and combinations to create the tone that you hope to create.
So for our inspiration board today, I have chosen to work with Pantone 18-2328 Fushia Red, with pops of green and gold. I took my inspiration from a wonderful sketch by Reem Acra. I like to think that the bride that would choose this Reem Acra dress for her 'maids would be a bit of a free spirit...that's why I chose some non-traditional accessories, foods, and invitations to round out the board. This makes me wish Spring would hurry up and get here! --a
