Have you heard about Pantone’s Color of the Year? It’s an annual announcement from Pantone, telling everyone what the trending color will be this year. It’s so fun to see people use the Color of the Year in so many different ways in the DIY wedding community!
Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year is Marsala. In previous years, the colors have always been very bright or soft (such as 2014’s choice, Orchid); but Marsala is a full-bodied, deep, rich earthy color that is perfect for year-round wedding color schemes. At first glance, you might think that Marsala favors only a winter wedding, since it is such a warm and rich color. Although it looks fantastic surrounded by wintery hues, it is also a stand-out choice for bright companions, like pinks and purples to bring forth its more playful side. Marsala’s best color companions are blush, cream, and golds, but don’t stop there! Play around with navy , grey-blue, and other deep, muted blue colors for a deep, gorgeous wedding color scheme. Below you will find 6 of our own, original wedding color scheme ideas featuring Marsala, as well as some of our favorite, trending wedding inspiration that will help you decide how to best use this stunning color.
