This Year’s Wedding Color Palettes

As we move out of 2020 and into the new year with a new perspective, we want to reflect the changes we’ve endured. When it comes to planning your wedding, that means using symbolic colors and items throughout your wedding day that show this endurance. The colors you choose can say a lot about you and your partner, as well as the times in which you’re getting married. In 2021, grays and yellows are making a splash as they symbolize a message of positivity supported by fortitude. The wedding experts at Walter Knoll Weddings are ready to help you style your wedding with colors that reflect the hopeful cheerfulness of this year.

Pantone Color of the Year

For 2021, the Pantone Color of the Year is a one-two punch of Ultimate Gray paired with Illuminating, a bright yellow that offers hope and positivity. Ultimate Gray reflects the practical and rock-solid boldness we all experienced as we survived 2020, while Illuminating offers a message of resilience and hope. What a beautiful symbolic statement to display on your 2021 wedding day as you enter life together and step boldly into your bright future. Here are a few great ways to incorporate both of these colors into your wedding.

The choice of floral colors for your wedding bouquet makes a statement, so it’s important to think about what message you’re proclaiming on your wedding day. The Illuminating yellow spectrum will be a bold show of hope, happiness, and positivity. Choose bright, buttery yellow tulips, lilies, or roses for an elegant showing. Display frothy chrysanthemums, spiky pincushion protea, or star-shaped daffodils for a spunky, cheerful look. Carry sunflowers, daisies, or craspedia to showcase the happiness you’re experiencing on this amazing day. Whatever yellow flowers you choose, you’re sure to leave your guests certain of your hopefulness and happiness.

The creative ways to incorporate Ultimate Gray into your wedding are simply unending. Use rustic, weathered wood for tables, chairs, benches, or even barn doors to add a gray backdrop to your wedding and reception. Bridesmaids will look beautiful in shades of gray while groomsmen’s tuxedos or suits will be sharp in trendy grays instead of traditional black. Use eucalyptus, twigs, and branches, or smooth river stones for floral accents to add gray to your yellow bouquets. From table linens and accent ribbons to full backdrops and furniture, gray can be found anywhere you like to create a fabulous contrast to your bright yellow florals.

By infusing your wedding with the most on-trend colors of the year, you make a bold statement about the times in which we live. As your wedding day goes down in history for you and your partner, mark the times with colors and styles that reflect the moment. The union of Ultimate Gray with the vibrant yellow Illuminating will bring a bold, hopeful flavor to your special day.
