Welcome to 2016! This must be very exciting to those of you planning weddings this year—it’s your year!—and a new fresh start for the rest of us. Every year the good people at the color company Pantone come up with one color they think represents the cultural mood of the upcoming year. However, for the very first time Pantone has chosen a blending of two shades to be the color(s) of the year: Rose Quartz and Serenity.



These two soft pastels would be beautiful at any wedding, but they look particularly amazing together and would be perfect for a spring or summer wedding. This centerpiece mixing the blue of Dusty Miller with the pale pink of the peony shows how well Rose Quartz and Serenity work together.

Pastel pink and blue are just so, well, pretty!  They look particularly lovely combined here in a bridal bouquet.

But, you say, what flowers are available in these two colors? The pastel pink of Rose Quartz is easy enough to find in the flower world, but what about the sky blue of Serenity?  Blue is actually fairly common in wedding flowers, especially hydrangea and delphinium, and hyacinth and muscari (grape hyacinth) are beautiful blue spring flowers that bring the fresh feel of that season.  How amazing would this bouquet look with the palest of pink wedding gowns, or with a white gown and pink bridesmaids dresses? It’s comprised of muscari, thistle, hyacinth, hydrangea, and delphinium.

Or, you can mix Rose Quartz and Serenity together in your wedding flowers.

One great way to show off your pastel pink and blue is to have your bridesmaids dresses in one shade, and their flowers in the other.

There’s also the rest of your wedding to feature Rose Quartz and Serenity. Go nuts!  This wedding cake in pastel pink and sky blue, with accents in one of those very fashionable metallics, is just incredible.

Pastel French macaroons are still extremely popular.



Ribbons and blooms in Rose Quartz are lovely as chair decorations for the ceremony.
