And the 2015 Color of the Year is …… (drumroll please)

From the desk of: Amanda

As we get ready to really kick off the wedding season, I thought I’d keep you guys up to date on this season’s popular colors! After last year’s trend of pastels and muted tones, couples are still keeping it somewhat muted, but heading more toward earth tones this time.

The color of the year, according to the color experts over at Pantone, is Marsala. The wine?! That was my first thought, too. Not surprisingly, marsala is in the burgundy family, but it lends more toward a dusty shade, rather than the bold traditional color you’re used to seeing.


The executive director of Pantone, Leatrice Eiseman, says “Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability. Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in
to its embracing warmth.”

I couldn’t agree more.

Not sure what to pair this unique color with? Pantone offers up some suggestions on their page, but here’s a quick look at a couple of my favorites:



Not feeling the darker colors? No worries. Marsala isn’t the ONLY color this year. Other colors that brides are leaning toward include:
