Last week, we introduced you to Rose Quartz, one of two PANTONE Colors of the Year for 2016. Today, we’re thrilled to celebrate this year’s second top color pick: Serenity—a calming whisper of blue you’re going to adore. Serenity visually captures a feeling of true tranquility. It lends a timeless elegance to all things wedding, from fabrics to flowers, and paper to place settings. This vision board will hopefully inspire you to throw your own blue wedding!
We love this wedding invitation in Serenity and its lilting strokes of pastel petals. We think it could be the perfect pairing to those of you seeking a blue wedding theme!
Instead of chasing away the blues, here are more ideas for incorporating Serenity into your big day:
Why does the bride get to have all the fun? Try groom’s shoes in a dusty duck-egg blue. This fun pop of color brightens the day and the wedding aisle. Blue shoes add just the right amount of color, without going overboard. You do not have to wear blue, from head to toe.
Flattering for anyone, these blue dresses will stand the test of time. Soft ruching complements the bodice while a georgette skirt offers a princess-like flair.
Bring any table to life with hints of soft powder blue accents. Vintage vases in a dusty blue are paired with silver candlesticks for a romantic look with old-world charm.
Ceramic blue dishes have a handcrafted appeal. Perfect for creating an elegant, relaxed table.
Want a focal piece for your reception? An elegant blue sofa is as relaxing to look at as it is to rest upon. This is a great way to dress up your venue.
Bring your bouquet to life with pops of baby blue paired with creams and blushes. There are so many pretty flowers in this hue.
Accent your cake with edible blue flowers to perfectly match your theme.
Create an eye-catching tablescape, compliments of your signature color. A dusty blue napkin adds contrast to simple, white plates. Soft blue wedding decorations can be very chic.
You won’t regret embracing this Color of the Year—soft, romantic and elegant.
