Throughout each year the global masterminds of colour at Pantone deliver delicious reports on the hot hues for the seasons ahead. Having studied the SS14 catwalk shows of New York Fashion week, Pantone produced the palette featured above which highlights the central colours for spring next year.  


If you’re looking for some stylish ideas for your big day theme, these fashion forward colour combinations are guaranteed to tick all of the trend boxes. Plus, there will be a plentiful supply of wedding day pretty hitting the shops in these pastels early next year as predicted by Pantone, thus making it super easy to find the perfect pieces to match your theme.


First up for inspiration from the Pantone palette is Violet Tulip:

“A romantic, vintage purple which evokes wistful nostalgia.”

“Designers take a modern twist on the traditional for spring 2014 by pairing soft pastels with vivid brights to create a colorful equilibrium. Inspired by a mixture of blooming flowers, travels abroad and strong, confident women, designers use color to refresh, revive and defy conventional wisdom.” –


“This season, consumers are looking for a state of thoughtful, emotional and artistic equilibrium,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “While this need for stability is reflected in the composition of the palette, the inherent versatility of the individual colors allows for experimentation with new looks and color combinations.”
