Pantone states that choosing the “Color of the Year” is actually “…a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.” To be honest, we were so elated when we saw that this colour had been chosen, because Pantone is 100% accurate – living coral is trending in a big way! For 2018, we saw hundreds of couples add sweet touches of coral for their destination wedding, and it was heavenly. We even featured some of these gorgeous weddings from around the Caribbean and Mexico, and got an opportunity to see both wedding professionals and couples explore their creativity and have some fun with colour.
For all you “Living Coral” fans out there…this special feature will definitely put a smile on your face 🙂
Mother Nature has given us a plethora of natural colors whose beauty often leaves us in amazement. From our amazing and colorful sunsets, to the leaves changing colors in the fall to the shocking rainbow of colors we find in shoreline tide pools, our gifts from under the sea. Another gift from the deep blue are the reefs, we’re talking coral, deep-sea corals to be exact. These living entities, like the Great Barrier Reef (which stretches 1,400 miles in length and is 40 miles wide) virtual give us a paint box of colors with breath taking hues of yellow, orange, red, pink, white, purple, teal and more! The most popular being the reddish-pink hues that we all know called “coral”, the bright and vibrant hue has long been seen as a shade that evokes happiness and positive vibes. This year, the Pantone Color Institute, the global authority on color, has chosen as 2019’s “color of the year”, none other than “Living Coral”!
