Tuesday's Tips: Spring & Summer 2011 Color Palette

At Relish, you can use our software to create your invitation in any color palette you desire. While the creativity is up to you, we are often asked what the color trends are for the Season. Here is the color palette our friends at Pantone (the geniuses behind the master color book used for the many areas of the design world) have come out with a list of the Top 10 hottest colors for Spring / Summer, 2011.
“The colors designers have chosen for the spring season present an interesting marriage of unexpected warm and cool tones,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute® By cleverly combining complementary colors, those that are opposites on the color wheel, they have created a striking intensity to the palette. These unique color combinations make it possible for consumers to pair existing pieces in colors traditionally associated with fall, with new favorites to punch up springtime wardrobes."

We personally love these colors! Our favorite combos?
  • Honeysuckle & Coral Rose: Honeysuckle was the Top color of 2011 chosen by Pantone. We love it combined with the Deep Orange (what we might call Tangerine)! It makes you think of a bright Summertime bouquet. Gorgeous for a bright wedding!
  • Russet & Beeswax: Try this for something more rustic. If you are getting married towards the end of Summer / early Fall - this might be the perfect embodiment of that time of year.
  • Silver Peony & Silver Cloud: For something more "cool", try this combo. It's perfect for a beach wedding or for a classic clean color scheme.
If you can't find the pattern you want in one of these colors, call us for FREE custom colorization to choose one of these 10!
