Color Palette Inspiration: Pantone Color of the Year 2013

Yesterday, Pantone announced their Color of the Year 2013, PANTONE 17-5641 | Emerald! Their description:

Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.

What are your thoughts on this color? Personally, I love the jewel-tone quality and richness of the hue. It is a big change from last year’s color of the year, Tangerine Tango, but a welcomed one, I think. Here is a little inspiration board to get you thinking about Emerald for your upcoming wedding or event!

Color of the Year Banner: Pantone
Flowers: By Fleurology Design
Dress: By Elie Saab Spring 2012 Ready to Wear via Style
Shoes: By Gucci via Bluefly
Cake: By Du Abu

Modern Wedding Gowns: Sarah Seven Spring 2013

I can’t get enough of the delicate detailing of Sarah Seven’s Spring 2013 Bridal Collection. Typically traditional beading and lace are combined with fresh silhouettes to create a  collection boasting modern simplicity. The designs are quite feminine without appearing to puffy or overdone. See a few of my favorites below.
