So this weeks wedding trend blog is all about colour! How apt when pantone colour of the year has just been realised! With this in mind I am going to mix the blog up a little and chat about living coral and how to use it in your wedding styling. I will as promised do a little roundup first though of some colour trends for 2019!
I am so freaking excited as colour, colour and more colour is set to be a huge trend for 2019! I get to have soooo much more fun with a bright colourful wedding palette! Forget the pastels and think jewel, rich, moody colour palettes, which I am so thankful for. Selecting the right tone of your colours really makes a huge difference in the overall look, no one wants their wedding to look likes a kids party right?

In contrast though there will still be lots of minimalist colour palettes focusing on one or two colours. The best way to execute this is by mixing it up with different shades of the colour, textures will be your best friend. Think past the all white and think creams, off white, beige and ivory. you can event mix in some light grey. Using natural linen and layering with say cheesecloth and chiffon and then natural crockery and tinted glassware will create the perfect sophisticated setting your guests have ever seen! You can then add a pop of colour with your flowers if you wish, living coral maybe???
So now on to pantone colour of the year! Living coral, what are we all thinking? Please do let me know below. I love it as an accent colour and it has so much more pop than blush. For me the first thing that came to mind was desert styling, The colour lends itself so well to rusty, dusty oranges. I put a quick moodboard together yesterday to show you how versatile the colour can be.
I think another great option is to use it as part of a colourful wedding palette, below I used a burnt orange but coral would work just as well and would even lighten the styling slightly.

If you love coral and you are fully committed to go all out at your next event with it then you really need to choose your base colours carefully. All white linen and just coral accents is going to looking full on. I would personally add one to two more accent colours, like dusty pinks or oranges. Then I would keep my base colours to greys and sage greens. When I am doing a main accent colour only 5-10% of the styling will have that colour, it is more than enough for the colour to pop but not over power.
