We’re not talking about chicken … although if that sounds delicious, go ahead and add it to your reception menu. We’re talking about Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2015. The rich, the earthy, the oh-so-close-to-wine-we-want-to-drink-it: marsala.
Leatrice Eiseman, executive director at the Pantone Color Institute, says that this year’s color “enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability.” She calls it “subtly seductive” … a shade that “draws us in to its embracing warmth.”
We’re not sure if she’s talking about the color or describing the perfect husband, but she had us at seductive. Here’s a little Marsala Wedding Inspiration for your Wednesday. As usual, we’ve got all the details covered, from your save the date all the way down to the honeymoon.
Everyone knows that your Save the Date and subsequent wedding invitation are a guest’s first impression of what your wedding will be like. Vintage, elegant, whimsical … make sure you set the right tone and incorporate your color scheme, even if it’s subtle. Carry your design through from your invitation and programs, all the way down to the Table Numbers.
If you’re still wondering what to get your bridesmaids or readers, a personalized phone case says, “I want to keep in touch with you ‘til death do us part.”
Or put together a beauty-themed gift bag.
And of course, don’t forget gifts for the groomsmen.
Speaking of groomsmen, outfit them and your ushers in a marsala tie paired with a gray suit.
These marsala colored cloth napkins will hide wine stains during cocktail hour.
If you’re setting up a lounge area within your reception space, splurge on some personalized pillows.
Give guests something to remember the evening. Pack chocolates or homemade treats inside these sweet boxes.
And don’t forget your luggage tag for the honeymoon!
