Think (Pantone Honeysuckle) PINK for 2011 Weddings

Your Las Vegas Wedding Concierge is tickled. . . PINK to discover the breaking style news today that the arbiters of all things color at Pantone, have selected "Honeysuckle" pink as the "Color of the Year" for 2011.

Here is the description of the color from Pantone . . .

A Color for All Seasons
"Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It’s a color for every day – with nothing “everyday” about it."

BRIDES...REJOICE!! I know I have one pink loving bride in particular getting married this May who was fashion forward, choosing a shade of pink quite similar, long before this news hit . She is probably jumping for joy that her favorite color is going to be in abundance for her pleasure (and all you other pink loving brides and readers).

Whether it's cakes, gowns, dresses, stationery, ties, makeup, floral and decor, linens and more, the wedding world is blushing (pink of course) and gushing over this lovely, cheery shade that radiates optimism for the future that is celebrated with marriage.

I love the use of "Honeysuckle Pink" in this style board "My Personal Artist", Michelle Mospens, has created and allowed me to share with you. It pairs it with "beeswax yellow" and "coral rose orange" (I just love the names these colors get...so delicious sounding).

I truly adore the 2011 color of the year honeysuckle. xoxo

Here I have paired honeysuckle pink, beeswax yellow, and coral rose orange. Remember, when creating your color combination know that you may not be able to find the perfect “honeysuckle pink” to match the color you see online. Don’t fret a hue in the same color family will work perfectly for your big day. Remember to have fun and mix it up a bit. A dash of light pink here and there are lovely too. Look for many more inspiration boards to come! Enjoy!!-Michelle

Michelle's website and blog are filled with beautiful color inspirations, invitation styles and ideas for you to dive into as well as expert advise on selecting color palettes for your wedding style and more.

And though I am usually all about the turquoise (2010 Color of the Year by the way and still going strong)...

Today I am celebrating PINK on my blog with Love, Life & Style! It compliments the gray beautifully, don't you agree?

Tiffany blue is great with a pop of coral red as an accent color. The pink is way too pepto bismol imo. I wonder if someone will ever dare going CMYK for their wedding colors. hahaha That'd be fun! I'm actually getting married at a las vegas outdoor wedding pretty soon.

I love turquoise and red as a combination. Its bright and cheery and I always think, a touch retro:)
