2019 color of the year - living coralThe Pantone Color of the Year: Living Coral

Pantone chose “Living Coral” as its 2019 Color of the Year. Living Coral is “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge,” according to Pantone. Look for Living Coral everywhere – from wall paint to garden flowers and of course, wedding themes.

Simple. Classic Couture

Thanks to Meghan Markle, a return to timeless styles. Think Audrey Hepburn, the 1950s… less is more. For a fun trip back in time, sally over to Miranda’s Vintage Bridal in Tremont.

Bridesmen and Groomsgirls

“By the time I was asked to be a groomsman, I had never even been a bridesmaid. Growing up, my best friends were boys. It’s not that I didn’t have any female friends – I did then and I do now, and I love them all. So I shouldn’t have been surprised when I was asked to be a groomsgirl at my brother’s wedding,” says Lindsay Pietroluongo on Wedding Wire. Check out this article, “What it’s REALLY Like to Be a Groomsgirl.”

The Royals pushed the frontier of 2019’s trends not only in fashion but this focus: environmentally friendly decor and local foods. Check out these plantable wedding invitations by Botanical Paperworks.

Silver (25th) Anniversary Themes

Vintage Anniversary

 
From 90s couples costume parties to partying like it’s 1919, we’ve got ideas.

Traditional: Silver, silver, silver – to match our graying hair. For a silver anniversary go all out with those swirly wedding calligraphy invites, silver metallic balloons, confetti, even silver Japanese lanterns.

Goofy 80s dress and dance party: Think big hair, Rubiks cubes, day glow fashion and Duran Duran and other mischief. Anyone know how to, like, break dance?

Famous couples costume party: Who was notorious in the 90s? Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain… Johnny Depp and Winona Rider… then Johnny Depp and Kate Moss… and of course Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, aiight?

Vintage: Get the wiggle on, drink some giggle water and put on the Ritz like your great grandparents with everything from sepia photographs to the slang of the time. Dress like sheiks and shebas.

We’ve put together this vintage gallery from the roaring 20s (thanks to the NYPL’s online collection of material whose copyright has expired). Inspiration for typography, fashion and the mood of the time.

Green-themed linens

 
Rumor has it that some of you got engaged on Christmas! Brides-to-be: the Pantone color of the year for 2017 is GREENERY.

“Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.” – Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of Pantone

With that in mind, we’ve created a Pinterest board devoted to the theme:
