Pantone Color of the Year 2016: Rose Quartz and Serenity

By now I'm sure you've heard all about the 2016 Pantone Color of the Year — this is the first time ever that the color experts have chosen two colors for the year. In 2016, there are two colors of the year and they are a pale pink shade known as Rose Quartz as well as a powdery blue called Serenity.

Both of these gorgeous colors are going to make a major impression on the design world in 2016, and that definitely includes weddings! These two shades are going to be the hottest colors for weddings in 2016 — do you plan to use either of these colors in your big day?

In honor of the colors being chosen and announced, I thought I'd share a little wedding color inspiration inspired by the Pantone Colors for 2016! See below for a selection of dresses (perfect for bridesmaids!) in Serenity and Rose Quarts that are all under $200. Budget savvy beautiful!

Pantone Color(s) of the Year for 2016:

 

Rose Quartz

This warm, pale pink shade is going to be a beautiful shade for weddings. Whether you incorporate the hue in your bridesmaids dresses, flowers, or other decor — rose quartz is going to add a feminine, ethereal quality to your wedding theme.

Serenity

Serenity is a cool powdery blue. In some instances, I feel like it closely recognizes a periwinkle shade and has subtle tones of purple in it. This color is going to be beautiful for weddings as well! As a bridesmaids dress, or in flowers such as hydrangeas, this blue shade is going to look perfect when paired with khaki, grey or navy suits on the groomsmen.
