If you're the kind of bride who wants to incorporate the most of-the-moment trends into her wedding, then say hello to the 2019 Pantone Color of the Year—Living Coral!
Perfect for bold brides who want to venture outside the box, this bright hue ain't your typical wedding color, which makes it all the more cool and original. Inspired by lively underwater ecosystems, this saturated orange-golden shade is described by Pantone as "sociable and spirited." The energizing tint "encourages lighthearted activity," explains Pantone. Like busting a move on the reception dance floor, perhaps?
"Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression," notes the Color Institute. Joyful pursuits? Now, that's a wedding color we can get behind.
You don't have to go all-orange-everything to successfully pull off 2019's top color trend. You can embrace bright and blooming pops of color in your bouquet, or colorful calligraphy on your wedding stationery. These minimal accents still pack a statement-worthy punch. Alternatively, you can go big and bold by drenching your ceremony backdrop or reception decor in this playful, summery shade.
Since we're officially living for Living Coral, we rounded up 11 wedding details in 2019's Pantone Color of the Year. Here are all the ways you can lighten and brighten your big day with this hot hue.
