Wedding Color Schemes Using Pantone’s 2017 Color Of The Year

WEDDING COLOR SCHEMES USING PANTONE’S COLOR OF THE YEAR

The colors you choose for your wedding day can come from anywhere — it’s all about discovering the best reflection of your style. Maybe you have one color in mind, but are wondering what combination will create a harmonious palette? That’s where I come in with wedding color inspiration to help you with your wedding planning.

Although the greens shown here are not an exact match to Pantone’s color of the year for 2017, Greenery, shown below

A bride in 2017 can substitute Greenery in the color schemes represented here and it would look stunning paired with any of these other colors.  In case you are wondering why you would include any shade of green at a wedding?  It may seem like an odd color choice for a wedding but actually it is one of the best colors for easily incorporating into a multi-color palette.  Pantone says this about their pick for the color of the year,  “Greenery is a versatile “trans-seasonal” shade that lends itself to many color combinations and pairs well with neutrals, brights, deeper shades, pastels, metallic colors and leaves an enduring presence.”  So, it is actually an ideal color at a wedding this year.

No worries, if this intense brighter shade of green does not appeal to you, I have added a few deeper shades below that might make adding the color green to your wedding celebration more comfortable.

First, feel free to stop by my I DO Wedding & Bridal Shop to browse stunning custom made pinwheels, favors, and other wedding decor for your special day coming up-

After much research, these are a few of the popular wedding color schemes for 2017 that include a shade of green.  So, grab a cup of coffee and let’s get started!

This color palette of gold, burgundy and a deep hunter green is traditional yet the inclusion of the color of gold is trendy right now.  Glitter gold and metallic foil accents are popular and easy to add at the reception tables.  Like these easy DIY painted wine bottle vases filled with fresh flowers –

Banners, favors and other wedding decor in gold are great at the bachelorette party or bridal shower as well.

Add these fun glitter gold diamond rings to cupcakes!

Now for the last wedding palette color schemes that include shades of green. . .  love this sage, blush and rose wedding color palette-

And finally, the popular color of gold again paired with peach and a deep shade of green.

  I hope you 2017 brides are starting to plan your spring and summer weddings now – to countdown to your wedding date.  Remember, early planning is less stress, as you get closer to the big day.

2017 Wedding Planning

WEDDING PLANNING IDEAS FOR 2017 BRIDES 

Last week I shared birthday planning tips and so today I am motivating brides to get started with planning their 2017 wedding.

First, to all the new fiances and brides-to-be who recently got engaged and are setting their wedding dates for 2017- CONGRATULATIONS!

Great news!  I just re-opened the I DO Wedding & Bridal Designs shop and I am now taking new 2017 custom wedding orders!

Stop by my shop here-  I DO Wedding & Bridal Designs 

I offer wedding banners, custom favors, handmade send-offs, and of course PINWHEELS in every size and design-

Extra large pinwheels for the entire bridal party or smaller sizes for favors and flower girl pinwheels to carry –

Boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen too.

Create your own wedding reception display with pinwheels as table centerpieces or wedding guest gifts or . . .

Add flags to your custom pinwheels with table numbers as escort cards or table numbers or a personalized message-

I am loving this pinwheel table number set-up, that I helped a bride with, all organized by alphabetized last names with their printed names on flags.  Brilliant!

I also offer wedding cake toppers in coordinating pinwheels-

These pinwheels and cake were a little less traditional but they still looked adorable and were perfect for this diy decorated wedding cake for a small casual outdoor reception.

Hope some of these ideas have inspired you 2017 brides!  Come browse my WEDDING SHOP and request a custom order.  Happy to help!

Plan Your Party or Wedding Early

JUMP START YOUR PARTY AND WEDDING PLANNING TODAY

Today, I want to help you start planning your party with a FREE printable party planner that you can print out and start getting ready for this year’s birthday party!  Scroll down for the FREE printable planner.

First, let’s talk about what is trending for birthday parties and baby showers for 2017.  Custom prints and personalized party decor is hot!

Oh sure, you could shop at that big box retail party store, but why? If you are planning ahead by at least 6 to 8 full weeks for an upcoming birthday party, baby shower, wedding, or any celebration- why not order in custom or personalized party decorations to coordinate to your party theme?!

Oh whoa!  Did that planning timeline throw you off? It’s actually smart and less stressful to start planning your children’s birthdays right now.  Why not?  At least start thinking of your theme and/or color scheme and ask them for some input! Even if their birthday is not until August, you can start shopping for custom made to order items on Etsy now.  In fact, you should!  

Sadly, I have to turn so many custom order requests away in the spring and summer months because mothers and brides wait until the last minute to plan and organize their birthday party for their little one’s special day.  I think Etsy shoppers sometimes forget that much of what is offered on Etsy is made to order, after checkout and many seller’s on Etsy have a full-time job.  Mine just happens to be my full-time business as a direct vendor for event planners all over the United States.

Yes, in most cases- I can ship many items from THE PARTY FETTI SHOP right away!  Ready to ship inventory is no problem but for my custom made items, I need my full 14 business day production time, so I can schedule orders out.  During my busiest time of year, spring and summer, I generally have 5 to 8 custom orders a day to get done and shipping out by customer deadlines.

However if you plan ahead, as early as now, custom party decor is the way to go!

Did you know that PINWHEEL PRETTIES offers prints in every party theme to coordinate to your event?

 Every party you can dream up, I’ve got you covered!  Prints in every style are available for a Circus party, Under The Sea, Finding Dora, Rainbow, Polka Dots, and we’ll even help out with Disney themes too!  Some of our top requested design are previewed below –
