Trend Wedding Colors – Autumn/Winter 2017-18
Have you decided to marry with the warm hues of the fall season or with the coolest shades of winter? Certainly, the choice of colors for your wedding is a very complex decision and must at all times reflect your personality and taste, but there is no real rule to follow. You can choose a single color, two colors in matching shades or even four or five different shades, always putting them together wisely.

My advice is to choose the one that best reflects you. The one that keeps you up beat. Providing a glimpse of the latest trends for the time of year can also offer some interesting tips.
Every season the Pantone Color Institute team (link https://www.pantone.com/fashion-color-report-fall-2017) examines the colors used by fashion designers in their collections at the New York Fashion Week. This information is then used to create the PANTONE Fashion Color Report, compiling a Top 10 list of the finest colors that will be found in men and women’s fashion outfits of the following season, as well as in design and weddings too. This time, the London Fashion Week was added, in addition to the usual New York Fashion Week. “There is a commonality between the colors we are seeing on the runway in New York and London.” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. “However, individuality is evident and we are seeing a distinct difference between the shows in the two cities in the way these same colors are being combined.”
In the New York palette we find warm, comforting and enveloping colors such as Red Grenadine or tawny Autumn Maple. As a bit of color, we also have a tiny pink Ballet Slipper, a refreshing Golden Lime and a bright Blue Marina. These shades add an impressive touch when combined with the classic autumn shades of Peony Navy, Neutral Gray, Butterrum and Tawny Port.
The London palette is dominated by a vivid Red Flame Scarlet, combined with strong classic shades complemented by unpredictable autumn and winter shades. According to Leatrice Eiseman, combinations such as Royal Lilac and Brown Otter, or Lemon Curry with Bluebell Blue leave us open mouthed while creating a particular chromatic dichotomy.
