See Décor Inspired by Pantone's 2017 Color of the Year

Discover wedding ideas inspired by this year's vibrant greenery shade.

Each year, the Pantone Color Institute selects the "Color of the Year" – meant to be a symbol of what is occurring in global culture and an expression of both a mood and an attitude for the coming year. The 2017 Color of the Year has been announced as Greenery. Known to be a refreshing and revitalizing shade, Pantone has shared that the latest Color of the Year symbolizes new beginnings, which we believe makes it an ideal hue to add to your wedding color palette since your big day is the epitome of a new beginning as you'll be embarking on a new life journey as husband and wife.

Since the shade is nature's neutral, adding fresh greenery throughout your décor – as well as design elements in its namesake hue – is simple. Whether you're having an outdoor fête or an indoor soirée, try accenting your bouquet with more verdure or lime-hued florals, say "I do" beneath a ceremony arch embellished with leaves and cascading amaranthus, or decorate your reception tablescape with a lush garland centerpiece or vibrant green charger plates and glassware. While the Pantone shade itself may seem bright to some, it really does come about in nature quite a bit. If you're weary of having too much lime green in your décor, keep the additions of Greenery in your wedding design to the natural elements of your day as opposed to linens or attire.
