trend report: the magic of color

Are you in need of a little help when it comes to choosing your wedding color palette? Pantone released their "Fashion Color Report Fall 2012" recently, and it is quite an inspiring collection of color! Even though this report was written to explain what inspired fashion designers for this fall season, why not explore these hues for your wedding and wedding stationery! “By playing to consumers’ practical side with versatile neutrals, and boosting their confidence with bold, spirited hues, this skillfully balanced palette has something for everyone,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.

"As the season transitions from the heat of summer, Bright Chartreuse, a vital yellow-green, pays homage to a typical spring shade and creates a bridge into the cooling days of fall. Reminiscent of bright green foliage, it provides a perfect accent to every color in the palette."

"Like the name implies, Pink Flambé is a delicious, vibrant pink with a bit of heat to it."

"Pair the pink with vivacious and enticing Tangerine Tango for an ongoing retro feeling."

"Or, to bring a calming element to the mix, combine these vibrant warm tones with Ultramarine Green, a deep, cooling blue-green."

"Ethereal Rhapsody is a grayed-down purple that also encourages comfort and serenity with its quiet, muted tone."

"Honey Gold, a mellow, burnished yellow, suggests the soft-muted tones of sunlight to brighten a fall day."

"Pair it with sensible and strong Olympian Blue, a patriotic blue that will surely make its way into fall and winter athletic apparel."

"Rich and robust, French Roast is a tasty, sophisticated hue that is a great alternative to the black and charcoal basics typically worn in the fall."

"Another staple neutral is the elegant and versatile Titanium, the quintessential cool gray."

"As well as the Rose Smoke, a veiled rose tone that pairs well with Rhapsody and Titanium."
