Now that you’ve chosen a theme for your wedding, here comes the hard part: ironing out the smaller details that will make your special day unforgettable. Whether that be the colors used or the types of decorations that will leave visitors awe-struck, the ceremony should be one to remember for everyone involved.

Pantone Color of the Year for 2022 is Very Peri. Pantone’s website says, “Very Peri helps us to embrace this altered landscape of possibilities, opening us up to a new vision as we rewrite our lives,” and is perfect for adding a sense of change or transition to any wedding, whether that be for decorations or clothing. 

With change occurring throughout the world as we begin to move on from the events of the past few years, Very Peri allows you to explore the world through the characteristics of the color, exuding this aura of carefree confidence through the blue hue, and daring to be curious with violet-red undertones. 

How to Make 2022’s Wedding Trends Your Own, wedding trends for this year deviate from the traditional wedding as couples increasingly value meaning and individuality over everything else. Using Very Peri in your wedding is the perfect way to show this spark of character.

You can also choose Very Peri in your wedding decorations. Table decor like table cloth, napkins, ribbons and other decorations help to bring this color even closer to your guests than the flowers. They’ll be right underneath their plate!

There are a wide variety of ways to show off this vibrant color in your decorations. 

Clothing and Accessories

There is arguably no better way to express your creativity and personality than through what you wear during big occasions like weddings. Incorporate Very Peri into your wedding attire through clothing and accessories like jewelry and nail polish.

Even for women who aren’t in the bridal party, Very Peri-colored shoes, dresses, ribbons, nail polish or jewelry can help you carry the spirit of change and transition that Very Peri exudes.

For gentlemen, Very Peri-colored bow ties, vests, Boutonnières or jackets add a sense of flair that immediately catches attention when compared to more traditional colors like black, navy blue, or red.

Very Peri colored bridesmaid dresses or men’s bow ties provide a unique aesthetic to any ceremony.

With more couples opting for wedding cake alternatives, this is the perfect chance for you to spice things up and go for delicious donuts, delicate macarons, tasty cupcakes or other desserts that your guests will enjoy. You can incorporate the Very Peri color scheme with these desserts through the icing or, in the case of the macarons, the pastry itself.

Not only are you giving your guests great tastes, you are adding individuality through the  soothing yet bold aesthetics of the Very Peri color scheme.

Tasty desserts like macarons and cakes are a delightful treat for any wedding guest, especially if they match the theme and color of the event.
