Pantone’s 2016 Colors of the Year

Pantone recently announced their 2016 Colors of the year – Rose Quartz & Serenity.  The Rose Quartz is essentially the blush color that we saw in much of last year’s wedding season.  But the addition of Serenity – what some might call a light, periwinkle blue –  adds a new twist.  The colors evoke images of vintage antiques,  billowy chiffon, and light-as-air macaroons yet are versatile enough for a beach-themed wedding, a rustic, backyard extravaganza or an elegant affair.  Use these colors as the main focus, or as accents to keep your wedding on trend.

And if you’re a bride on a budget (and really, who isn’t) here are a couple of my favorite beauty picks that perfectly complement this season’s color palette. (Note: I was not paid a fee to promote these products.  These are products I have actually used and love.)

Essie’s Ballet Slippers (which won Allure’s Reader’s Choice Award in 2015 & 2014)
