Pantone Color of the Year: Marsala

marsala

Marsala has been named this year’s Pantone Color of the Year, and I’m sure there are quite a few brides who are wondering how they can incorporate this beautiful, rich color into their wedding day. Let’s start with color combinations.

Color combinations

When you first see this color alone, you might think it will only work for a fall wedding, but with just the right combination, you can incorporate it into a spring/summer combo. Paired with a light pink (like Gossimer Pink that’s shown), baby blue, or cream, it would be perfect for a spring wedding. Ooh, and think about how gorgeous it would be with tan and shimmery gold accents for a late summer wedding!

Here are some great ideas for uses. Also keep in mind, they are a great color for bridesmaid dresses.
