Pantone Colors Inspired Wedding Trends

It’s that time again to talk about the Pantone colors of the year. Cue the applause! For 2021, not one but two colors were chosen, ultimate gray and illuminating yellow. You can expect to see these two beautiful colors everywhere, from bridesmaid dresses to floral arrangements. 

About The Colors

Yellow doesn’t take much to make an impact while gray helps add a neutral tone to the mix. 

According to Pantone, they were chosen to represent fortitude and positivity and we can’t wait to see these colors pop up everywhere.


Yellow sunflowers, roses, and peonies will be popping up in bouquets and arrangements, no matter the season. The bright color adds a cheerful, garden-like vibe to the big day. Don’t be surprised to see a touch of gray ribbon tied around bridesmaid bouquets to match their dress. 

While yellow bouquets may be too much a statement for some, they can still incorporate the beautiful color into their wedding day florals. Add a few statement flowers into a neutral colored bouquet or opt for the flower girls to throw yellow petals before walking down the aisle. 

Wedding Party Attire

The Pantone colors will be making a statement in the wedding party this year by taking over their attire. Expect to see the guys in gray with a pop of illuminating yellow in the details, whether that be a tie or pocket square, and the bridesmaids in beautiful yellow dresses. 

Wedding Stationery

Expect to see bloomed filled stationery designed with yellow flowers and gray details. It’s an easy way to incorporate this unexpected color palette and give wedding goers a small look into wedding day details. 

The Desserts

Whether it’s bold yellow flowers made from frosting or a touch of yellow sprinkles, don’t be surprised to see the Pantone colors making a debut on the dessert table. It’s a fun way to incorporate wedding colors and the guests get to enjoy it too!
