20 Feb 2019

Following London Fashion Week, Pantone Colour Institute shares the trending shades brides should draw on for their autumn/winter wedding

If you are planning an autumn or winter wedding, take inspiration from the colour experts’ latest trend report. Trend forecasting and colour consultancy Pantone Colour Institute has revealed the top 12 colours for autumn/winter 2019/2020 following London Fashion Week. 

“A sophisticated, yet bold collection of colours, this season’s palette exudes confidence and empowerment,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute: “The colour story for autumn/winter 2019/2020 suggests rich tones, each capable of making a statement but also with a versatility that creates warmth and harmony when paired together.” 

The palette is full of romantic shades with contrasting organic, natural tones and bright pops of colour. From the bridal party’s outfits to the table décor, there are endless ways to incorporate the latest colour trends into your celebrations. Take a look at a few of our ideas. 

PANTONE 18-4217 Bluestone and 19-4055 Galaxy Blue

Both of these blues are thoughtful and evocative so be bold, choosing accessories and suits in varying shades.
