Brides-to-be beware – there is a new booming trend popping out this wedding season, and it is totally drop-dead gorgeous! Pantone has announced a mesmerizing new hue named “Living Coral” perfect for spring or summer weddings, and ideal for both gentle and vivid brides. If you are following the latest trends, this hue is ideal for you. Pantone explains that they have selected this energising tint because of “authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy”. We can only be grateful for their decision because this colour shade is absolutely perfect for weddings.
Symbolizing joy and playfulness, living coral can be incorporated nicely into a number of blooms, bridesmaid dresses, décor, cakes, you name it.
If you wish to incorporate this timid but alluring hue into your special day, you might want to start from the beginning. By sending and receiving wedding invitations, guests can get a hint of what awaits them on your day, and by seeing this one-of-kind tint on the invitation they will surely be intrigued. Blushy living coral invitations represent a gentle way to incorporate this colour into your wedding theme. The background can be done solely with this colour, and then for the calligraphy use golden colour to enhance the effect. Or vice versa. On the plain white wedding invitation use a splash of coral calligraphy to bring the otherwise simple design to life.
Bridal make-up should be blended either with the season or with the general theme or colour of the décor or your bouquet. Of course, if some colours don’t suit your looks, or don’t work nicely with your hair colour or skin tone then don’t force those colours. “Living Coral” fuses perfectly with every hairstyle, face shape, and eye colour. Any bright coral blush followed up with a coral make-up pallet will look impeccable when intermixed with quality foundation. If you are to apply eyeshadow in a timid shade of pink, only make sure that the bridal earrings and other accessories are in neutral tones. You want your face and make-up to stand out and be noticed.
Something that makes every bride stand out and jaw-dropping is the wedding dress and the way she wears it. However, next to this classical garment, a bride should have a stunning bouquet. This year opt for rosy ombre coral bouquet, that melds with pink to orange shades. By choosing vivacious bright coral flowers a bride will completely bring the sunshine with her as she walks down the aisle. Pantone’s 2019 colour of the year can also be implemented in grooms wear, by placing a bright coral flower in the boutonniere.
Nothing is more romantic than when your bridesmaids line up in gorgeous matching dresses next to the bride. Long and elegant bridesmaid dresses with splashy coral shades are a must in 2019. Not only will the be ideal for a summer wedding, but they are delightfully feminine. There are many options, styles, and designs to choose from, like cute knee-length ruffle style, or chiffon full-length dress. Go for V-neck and a circle skirt for a fun and flattery style, or choose a cross-strap detailing at the back. Whatever you may decide, this year’s colour of the year is embracing the bridesmaids with warmth and nourishment.
Pushing against all odds, being unique and sophisticated is what “Living Coral” is all about. And why not push the limits of usual and tedious and decide on the cake with coral hue details. You can keep it simple with a white base and add place coral icing flowers scattered all around. On the other hand, you can get more creative and add rose gold and coral detailing on one layer of the cake, and on the other marble-effect tier and some coral ribbons.
