The Top 2019 Wedding Color Palettes

Tips for graphics providers who are in the wedding biz.

The Pantone Color Institute partnered with WeddingWire to provide the top four wedding color palettes for 2019. Choosing wedding colors is often easier said than done. “Color is a powerful tool – not just for enhancing aesthetics that are critical to every element of a wedding – but to evoke emotion and create the special mood that a couple wishes to communicate throughout their special day from playful and adventurous to romantic and timeless, and everything in between,” says Laurie Pressman, VP, Pantone Color Institute, in a release. WeddingWire’s Creative Director Jeffra Trumpower adds: “I recommend couples begin thinking about color as soon as they start wedding planning.”

  • Love in Bloom pays homage to the growing interest in floral wedding installations, featuring soft and nurturing shades of rose contrasted with daring fuchsia red, an earthy green, and shiny silver metallic. Pantone describes the color scheme: “Love in Bloom leans to the warm side of the spectrum with its visual portrayal of comfort and enjoyment, affection, and contentment. Blending nostalgia with new, Love in Bloom takes an innovative approach to romantic love.”
  • Golden Hour revels in the beauty of colors found in nature with a fresh twist on the traditional. Pale gold and copper metallic highlight warm neutrals including cream, tan, and light brown – the perfect backdrop for a couple with a rustic wedding theme celebrating a first dance to the Kacey Musgraves song of the same name.
  • Paradise Found is inspired by the tropics: playful oranges, lush greens, vibrant teals, radiant blues, and a splash of turquoise emulate water and sky, while a bright white represents the whitecaps of waves. Whether a destination or hometown wedding, this color scheme brings a lively feel to a couple’s big day.
  • Stroke of Midnight “celebrates the powerful energy and magic surrounding the beginnings of a new chapter for couples,” says Pantone in a release. The palette highlights “after dark” hues of twilight blues and red-infused purples, with sparkling whites and cool metallics adding sheen and sparkle. Pantone positions this palette as perfect for 2019’s linen of choice, velvet.
