Wedding Trend Color Highlight: Poppy Red

Pantone recently announced the 10 top colors of spring and summer 2013, which include balanced neutrals such as Dusk Blue, Grayed Jade, and Linen as well as the light and bright shades of Emerald, African Violet, Nectarine, Poppy Red, Lemon Zest, and Tender Shoots.  Pulling both the neutrals and brights together is the anchoring color Monaco Blue.

You will see these colors everywhere- from jewelry, to clothing, to home decor and furniture, to paint colors.  They will also be prominent in 2013 weddings, from bridesmaid dresses, to invitations, to favors, to linens, to flowers and other decorations.

Today, we are going to explore how poppy red will be utilized in weddings throughout the year, especially in Spring & Summer 2013.
