And the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year is...drumroll please....MARSALA!!! This jewel tone is going to make for some swoon-worthy 2015 weddings! The great thing about the color Marsala is the number of other colors it will pair so beautifully with. Sensual and bold, delicious Marsala is a daring tone for Spring. With its distinctly Autumnal feel it evokes warmth, richness and sophistication. "Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.
Marsala for Weddings
Complex and full-bodied without overpowering, Marsala provides a unifying element for interior spaces. Add elegance to your wedding by incorporating this rich and welcoming hue in accent pieces, linens and accessories. The hue will be especially prominent in striping and floral patterns.
A rich contrasting color, Marsala is ideal for use in invitations and wedding day stationery. Eye-catching, but not overwhelming or bright, your guests will immediately drawn to the hue, making it an alluring shade.
Even though dark red is usually associated with fall and winter weddings, marsala is actually a very versatile wedding color when paired with complementary colors or neutrals. Marsala, blush and ivory is a classic and pretty palette for any season or pair the color of the year with bright corals and oranges for a summery vibe. When it comes to wedding flowers, peonies and dahlias grow naturally in this dark red hue, and these big-headed blooms evoke a romantic quality. We especially love them layered with eucalyptus leaves.
Marsala may seem to be a perfect fit for fall and winter weddings but it also can be used during spring and summer months by integrating other earthy tones and metallics like gold. This romantic wedding inspired board features a rich red wine bouquet, marsala inspired table settings, bridesmaids dresses and more! Especially loved are how the marsala details really pop off the bright white backdrops.
