According to Pantone, 2016 is the year that pretty pastles are making a BIG comeback, and we are couldn’t be happier! Even more exciting, Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2016 has really pushed the boat out by naming not just one, but two pastel-perfect tones: Rose Quartz and Serenity.
The thought behind the colour of the year turned to the biggest trend of 2015 “mindfulness” for 2016. So what does that mean for those of you getting hitched in 2016? Your bridesmaids are going to be over the moon with their ‘Serenity’ shaded dresses! The colours have a super calming affect and mixed together, they almost look like a sunset of serendipity dreams. Blush pink is flattering on everyone and a really sweet colour tone. Imagine the bridesmaids in light pink David’s Bridal dresses whilst the groomsmen can wear a powder blue suit from Moss Bros.
Pink wedding dresses have been gracing the catwalks and aisles for years but here’s to 2016 where we hope the trend can really take off! Imagine walking down the aisle in a floating dusty pink frock designed by Sandra Dias or Gina Bacconi or a sky blue shade form Alfred Angelo for your something blue. We are expecting a lot more celebs to look to the likes of Jessica Beil and Gwen Steffani to opt for the non traditional coloured dress!
Alternative bride? You may want to take notion from the celebrity trend and make these colours part of your hair look. From Nicole Richie to Kylie Jenner, pastel hair has been a rising trend and would look just adorable in your pantone paradise wedding. Need inspiration? Just take a look at The National Wedding Show’s very own Rock N Roll Bride Editor Kat Williams for hair-spo. Kat will be at our shows in Autumn hosting the Rock N Roll Bride Collection and we can’t wait to see what colour hair she will be rocking!
