2019's Pantone Color Of The Year - Coral

Spring has officially sprung in the South, and with it, so has the 2019 Pantone Color of the Year - Living Coral! Inspired by underwater reefs, this unique pink shade with bold golden undertones isn’t for the faint of heart. Unlike traditional wedding colors, this statement-worthy hue instantly reenergizes an event, and can make even the most classic bride stand out.


Here are four ways to incorporate this vibrant, and playful hue into your upcoming wedding!


Get the night started by serving your guests cocktails in this year’s signature shade. A fresh grapefruit margarita, or classic Paloma will surely get the party started!

Take your dining tables to the next level by layering different coral colored elements, such as textured linens and tall taper candles, to really “wow” your guests! Whether your go big or small, these statement-worthy, brightly colored details will make a huge impact at any venue.

3. Cake

Spruce up that classic white wedding cake by adding vibrant pops of large coral blooms cascading down each tier to really make it a standout focal piece for the reception. It will almost be too pretty to eat!
