‘Living Coral’: 5 Ways To Incorporate Pantone’s Colour Of 2019 In Wedding Celebrations

Choosing a colour scheme is one of those crucial decisions in wedding décor planning, but there is no need to feel intimidated by this flamboyant shade.
Coral is trending, but you don’t have to go overboard to incorporate it into your colour scheme.  In fact, coral can be subtly integrated into a variety of wedding details for a joyful pop of colour. Depending on your preference, you may opt to choose coral as an accent or base colour. Naturally, you should select a base colour that you love as it will feature prominently throughout your wedding. Accent colours are essential to add dimension and prevent the base colour from becoming over-the-top.

Depending on the colour choice of your base, your accent colour should be on the opposite side of the colour wheel. For instance, if your base is coral, choose demure accent colours with neutral tones and in case of a neutral base, then bold choices like coral are considered complementary.

From cake to floral arrangements, here are five unique ways to incorporate coral into your celebration details.

1.The Bouquet

Inspired by our lively coral ecosystems, saturated rosy orange hues are energizing and joyful. Combine coral with subdued colors to customize your flowers. There are so many beautiful flowers in vibrant shades of coral. Peony, dahlia, carnations, and ranunculus are just a few options.

2. Floral Arrangements: Centrepieces & Arches

For an extra touch of sophisticated elegance, floral arrangements like centrepieces or arches are beautiful for adding liveliness to your big day.

3. Wedding stationary & calligraphy

If you do not like bold and bright colours, keep the rest of your colours neutral and add a pop of coral with the calligraphy on the place cards and menus.

4. Signature Drink

A signature drink is the perfect way for your wedding guests to toast to your everlasting love. Cocktails are a playful way to incorporate your wedding theme and hues. An elegant and unexpected expression of creativity, coral is a lively shade that lends itself to picture-perfect cocktails.  Most importantly, when deciding on your signature drink, be sure to pick one that is meaningful to you and your fiancé.

5. Cake

A beautifully designed cake is just as admired as delicious flavours so ensure you have adequate inspiration and a splash of colour. Your cake can draw inspiration from a variety of details such as your wedding theme and colours so let your creative ideas take form in a delicious and aesthetically pleasing design. These gorgeous cakes combine gradients of coral for a modern and chic monochromatic masterpiece.
