And after a long, and very (very!) cold winter, we are more than ready to indulge in the enjoyment of plenty of seasonal prettiness, starting with today’s how-to feature. Here’s how to pull together the perfect springtime tabletop for your wedding day, your bridal shower, or just because!

Wedding Planning Essentials: Pantone’s Spring 2015 Color Trends

pantone's spring 2015 color trends

The Fall season may just have started but with the recent wrap of New York Fashion Week and Pantone’s subsequent Spring 2015 color report, we can’t help but have Spring on our minds. The color forecast, best described by Pantone when titling the Top 10 Women’s Colors “An Eclectic, Ethereal Mix”, is trending to bring with it strong romantic notions of the simple, and the best, things in life. Tapping into a calming blend of the warm and the cool, Spring’s palette encourages some well deserved me time, a break to enjoy all the beauty that surrounds us. With its lead color Aquamarine, slow and steady days by the waterfront call out with an invitation to visit. Needless-to-say, with this type of forecast, Spring is shaping up to be a beautiful time to get married!

And because wedding trends don’t fall far from the fashion trend tree, we’re taking this bit of seasonal color inspiration that Pantone has infused us with and we’re turning it into our Top 10 Picks for the best ways to incorporate Spring’s hottest hues into your wedding day. So for all you Springtime brides, here’s your chance to nail down the details. Happy Planning!
