The Latest Pantone Color of the Year Might Be the Prettiest Ever

It’s true. Every year Pantone releases its’ “It” color and we love it. But this year is extra special.

Called an “animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge,” the 2019 Pantone Color of the Year has been named as Living Coral.

And how perfect is this color for weddings? We can see it being used everywhere from your wedding flowers and bridesmaid dresses to linens and even your wedding day lipstick. We especially love the meaning behind this year’s pick. According to the official Pantone site, the color is a reaction to everything currently going on around us…from social media to politics, it provides a lively yet soothing escape.
