And guess what ladies! All 10 are super fabulous and gorgeous! This is great news for my 2016 brides, as you can definitely utilize these awesome colours throughout your wedding decor and theme as well as your wedding party attire.
“With our culture still surrounded by so much uncertainty, we are continuing to yearn for those softer shades that offer a sense of calm and relaxation.” – Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute
Check out these fantastic new colours and some examples that were inspired by these colours below!
Rose Quartz – Pantone 13-1520
Rose Quartz is a gentle and light shade of Pink. It is very gender neutral and always a favourite amongst bridesmaids. As Pantone says: “Like a serene sunset, flushed cheek or budding flower, Rose Quartz reminds us to reflect on our surroundings during the busy but lighthearted spring and summer months”.
Peach Echo – Pantone 16-1548
Orange has always been a favourite colour amongst fall brides, and let’s face it, it is gorgeous! Peach Echo is a soft delicate Pantone in the oranges family that can absolutely be used for your Spring/Summer wedding.
Serenity – Pantone 15-3919
The name says it all! This fabulous shade of light blue reminds me of the blue sky and calm seas. Serenity will definitely bring you the feeling of relaxation on your big day.

Buttercup – Pantone 12-0752
While wall the colours that we’ve looked at so far are on the softer side, Buttercup gives you the ‘Punch’ that you might be looking for. This gorgeous shade of yellow will also make a great add-on to Snorkel Blue if you’re thinking about combining some colours.

Limpet Shell – Pantone 13-4810
My personal favourite! a great shot of aqua with a hint of green. As Pantone says “Limpet Shell is clear, clean and defined”, and I absolutely agree with them. If I could paint the world to be Limpet Shell,… trust me, I would!
Lilac Gray – Pantone 16-3905
If you’re looking for a neutral colour, look no further! This fantastic Gray with the Lilac undertone, is called Lilac Gray (why not?!). Lilac Gray takes a classic gray shade and adds some ‘Oomph’ to it. This is another gender neutral colour that would honestly look good on anybody!
Fiesta – Pantone 17-1564
This high energy yellow-based fiery is nothing but the vivid Fiesta. Its alluring shade of red will make a charming addition for your backyard weddings having the nature as the backdrop.
Iced Coffee – Pantone 15-1040
This dazzling shade of goody brown is another example for an all-time neutral wedding colour. Iced Coffee can be combined with any of the other colours of this season’s palette to add a soft delicate touch. Or you can by all means just use it by itself to take advantage of its glory in full!
Green Flash – Pantone 15-0146
This fascinating shade of green reminds me of Spring and Summer at first glance! Green Flash is the last colour in this marvellous line-up. You can totally use it by itself or have it combined with Purple, Blue, and Teal to make for a fantastically unique Peacock Theme Wedding.
