Top 10 Pantone Colors for Spring

Let's go through the list here of these gorgeous hues and how they're going to make your wedding color scheme sing in the Spring!

Dazzling Blue 18-3949, Pantone's top color pick for Spring 2014 is obviously a beauty. Looking for a color that will really wow? This dreamy shade of blue should definitely be on your short list!

Pantone included two shades of lavender in next year's line up! Violet Tulip 16-3823 and Radiant Orchid 18-3224 really are romantic shades. So if you're going for a more feminine look or something romantic you may want to lean towards these beauties!

Next up on the list is Celosia Orange 17-1360 which lends itself to be both lively and fun. This sweet tangerine inspired shade is sure to make heads turn! Equally fun is Freesia 14-0852 that captures all the goodness of a sunshine filled day.

Cayenne 18-1651 makes a pretty accent color. I love how vibrant and lively it feels and when paired with other warm colors, it really does take on a gorgeous vibe.

Placid blue 15-3920 is another shade that made the list. Such a dreamy shade and so versatile! Here lately I'm loving shades of blue paired with soft shades of peach. Another favorite color that made the list, Hemlock 15-6114 which really takes center stage. Sweet, chic and absolutely pretty, it's colors like these that make your bring cheer to your color scheme!

And not to be forgotten, Pantone made sure to include two of the prettiest neutrals. Paloma 16-0000 and Sand 15-1225 are the perfect anchor colors and would mix perfectly with any other shade featured here. That's what to love about a good neutral. They're so versatile. So there you have it! Just a few notes on the Top 10 Pantone Colors for Spring, 2014!

zaza gardens event facility - san antonio wedding planner

Hosting the open house at this new downtown facility was a blast.  My preferred vendors donated their services and products to dress the facility for it's San Antonio Wedding Magazine debut.  They even videotaped the room and outdoor areas to show on their Virtual Tour link.  The facility is close to downtown, lots of free parking, high ceilings, limestone walls and wooden beams.  Lots of space to roam and dance while still keeping it warm and intimate.  Accommodates @ 200 with a dance floor.  Call Lisa @ Haute Weddings 210-215-5820 for more information.

I also want to give a big shout-out and thank you to Teresa of elan Imaging.  She always does an amazing job!  And Masquerade DJ for filling in at the last minute, and Infinity Catering, for providing their scrumptious food for my guests.

haute weddings @ destiny bridal - san antonio wedding planner

Haute Weddings had the pleasure of meeting Maria Leon, owner of Destiny Bridal, located at 12651 Vance Jackson. Maria personally gave Haute Weddings a full tour of her boutique.  You could truly feel her passion as she spoke of the latest wedding gown trends, current "in" designers, fabrics, embellishments, and accessories. This boutique offers dress lines from some of the top bridal designers, such as Maggie Sottero, Alexia Designs, Mori Lee, The Dessy Group, and Eden. Maria also has hair accessories, custom made wedding veils, and a wide variety of beautiful bridal party dresses. Destiny Bridal is actually listed as the Preferred Maggie Sottero bridal retailer in San Antonio and the surrounding area.

Aside from all the gorgeous dresses, in every trendy style and color, Destiny Bridal also strives to offer a customer service experience unlike any other bridal salon. Walk in's are welcome, but an appointment is best, so Maria and her talented staff can dedicate their full attention to your needs.  With all her year's experience, Maria has learned to listen to the bride's preferences, but she is also in-tune with the styles and how certain styles of dresses can flatter a body shape.

Maria possesses a vast knowledge of the bridal dress industry, and has a staff dedicated to offering a very personalized shopping experience. The combination of this personalized service and the latest bridal dresses makes Destiny Bridal the first stop for any bride to be.

From Thursday, October 27th thru Sunday, October 30th, Destiny Bridal is hosting a Mori Lee bridal trunk show.  With a scheduled appointment, you are welcome to try on as many dresses as you choose.

Remember when choosing a boutique designer dress, a bride must give plenty of time for shipment and alterations. Most brides don’t realize this can take as little as 4 months or as long as 8 months depending on dress selection. So don’t wait, start shopping as soon as possible for your bridal dress and bridal party dresses!

Did you know that you can order individual services from Haute Weddings?  Haute Weddings is already known for outstanding event coordinating, but we are branching out and expanding to also offer individual services.  Lauren and her family were "DIY" wedding coordinators and met with Haute Weddings to discuss linen rentals, floral arrangements for the ceremony, and bar service.  Her colors were black, white and purples.  For linens, she chose a contrasting color scheme of black and white.  She ordered ceremony and wedding party flowers in pretty purples and lavish greens.  For bar service, they decided on keg beer and a soda service.  TABC bartenders included.
