Incorporating Custom Color in Wedding Favors

Pantone color of the Year 2015 Marsala

Welcome 2015! With the new year comes the announcement from Pantone® that Marsala is the color of the year for 2015. In the spirit of Pantone’s announcement, we at BYB want to share how to incorporate such a fabulous custom color in your wedding favors, specifically wedding wine labels, water bottle labels, and hang tags.

Color plays a key role in a bride’s life as she plans for her “best day ever.” Many brides either consciously or unconsciously follow the latest color trends when selecting their wedding colors. As a result, popular wedding colors come and go, but this year Pantone announced a color that veered from the familiar when it chose Marsala as the 2015’s color. It’s not like pastel colors of the past or even bright contrasting colors seen at many weddings. This color is bold, but sophisticated and embodies a natural earthiness. Even the most ambivalent groom will appreciate a color like Pantone’s Marsala.

You know, of course, that wedding planners, florists, stationers, and dress designers, are all scrambling to include this sophisticated color in their current offerings to brides.

What Colors Harmonize with Marsala?

According to Pantone, “Whether in a flat or textured material, or with a matte or gloss finish, this highly varietal shade combines dramatically with neutrals, including warmer taupes and grays. Because of its burnished undertones, sultry Marsala is highly compatible with amber, umber and golden yellows, greens in both turquoise and teal, and blues in the more vibrant range.”
