Color Palettes for Your 2021 Wedding

As we move out of 2020 and into the new year with a new perspective, we want to reflect on the changes we’ve endured. When it comes to planning your wedding, that means using symbolic colors and items throughout your wedding day that show this endurance. The colors you choose can say a lot about you and your partner, as well as the times in which you’re getting married. In 2021, grays and yellows are making a splash as they symbolize a message of positivity supported by fortitude. The wedding experts at Griffin’s Weddings are ready to help you style your wedding with colors that reflect the hopeful cheerfulness of this year. 

Pantone Color of the Year

The Pantone Color of the Year has been announced and this year, two colors have been brought together to show the strength and hopefulness we’ve all shown during such a difficult time in our world. Ultimate Gray is paired with Illuminating, a bright yellow full of promise. Together, these colors create a powerful statement of standing rock-solid while remaining warm and optimistic. Use these colors in your wedding for everything from bridesmaids’ dresses and tuxedos, to sunny flowers and accents.

Yellow Blooms

Including yellow flowers in your wedding bouquet and accent florals are the perfect way to infuse some sunshine into your magical day. Choose bright, buttery yellow roses, tulips, or lilies for a sophisticated look. Incorporate full golden chrysanthemums, feisty pincushion protea, and star-like daffodils for a sassy, playful look. Opt for bright yellow sunflowers, cheerful daisies, or fun craspedia to reflect your cheerful happiness. Yellow flowers have always symbolized happiness and friendly cheerfulness. What better time to make them your wedding flowers than during this season of optimism?

The creative ways to incorporate Ultimate Gray into your wedding are simply unending. Use rustic, weathered wood for tables, chairs, benches, or even barn doors to add a gray backdrop to your wedding and reception. Bridesmaids will look beautiful in shades of gray while groomsmen’s tuxedos or suits will be sharp in trendy grays instead of traditional black. Use eucalyptus, twigs, and branches, or smooth river stones for floral accents to add gray to your yellow bouquets. From table linens and accent ribbons to full backdrops and furniture, gray can be found anywhere you like to create a fabulous contrast to your bright yellow florals. 

The beauty of uniting a deep, thoughtful Ultimate Gray and a forward-thinking, inspiring Illuminating yellow will wow guests and family alike. Make your wedding the talk of the season when you infuse your special day with this awe-inspiring pairing.
