As we are entering 2021 we are looking forward to the latest wedding trends and Pantone colour of the year.

Each year we eagerly await Pantone’s colour of the year and for 2021 they have actually chosen two colours, maybe after such a difficult year they thought they would inspire us.

Can I get a drum roll please! This year the colours are Ultimate Gray and Illuminating Yellow.

The colours have been chosen to represent fortitude and positivity according to Pantone. This is a colour choice that promises a brighter tomorrow.

The “Ultimate Gray” represents a “stable foundation,” while the “Illuminating yellow” is like our light at the end of the tunnel or sunshine on a cloudy day.

Here we have come up with some inspirations for how to use this colour palette.


The Pantone colour of the year is a perfect colour scheme for Spring and Summer weddings. Yellow is a contrasting colour and can be combined with white and green to create depth. Ask your florist to create beautiful and elegant centrepieces for your reception with these colour combinations.
