2019 Pantone Color of the Year

With the new year comes new trends, new ideas and a new Pantone Color of the Year, which means new wedding inspiration! And this year's color is Living Coral. According to Pantone’s website, Living Coral is a vibrant, yet mellow hue that embraces us with warmth. They also mention this shade is a “reaction to the onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly embedding into daily life." This is so aligned with what we see in the modern wedding scene everyday, where brides find their wedding vendors on social media, Facetiming in relatives while wedding dress shopping, and the use of wedding hashtags.

Choosing wedding colors comes down to your personal style, which will coordinating with your selected theme. As you keep scrolling, watch how Pantone’s Living Coral morphs to each wedding day vibe. We can’t wait to see how you use this inspo to make your day uniquely yours in 2019.

Timeless Romantic

The intensity of Living Coral softens when paired with lighter hues from the same family for a timeless romantic look. This monochromatic wedding theme creates a dreamy look, while still adding a pop of color! If it’s still feels too loud, try muting it down even further with more whites and metallics, either way your day will look like a modern-day fairytale.

 

Bohemian Tropical

Living Coral was born for the bohemian tropical theme, with it's warm undertone and organic, energizing quality. Look how it just pops against the complementary jungle greens. Plus, pairing it with palms and ferns is a much welcomed update from the eucalyptus greenery trend. This wedding theme is full of unexpected texture, unifying details, and lots of natural elements.

 

Retro Eclectic 

Retro Eclectic would make the perfect wedding theme for the bride that's super into thrifting or honestly, just can't get enough of all the vintage details! Paired with other rich, vibrant shades, Living Coral isn’t as front and center in this color scheme. These quirky hues and unique, found objects will add an extra level of your personal touch to you and your fiancé special day.

 

Modern Bold

When paired with shades of red, orange and yellow, Living Coral is creates a modern bold aesthetic. Together these energetic colors really make a statement, setting the day up for a lively atmosphere. And we love any wedding theme that works in your favor to create the vibe you want.

Wedding Planning TIps: Bridal Show

Bridal shows are one of the BEST ways to save money 💸 while wedding planning! Wedding vendors are all bringing out their best discounts and add ons to help themselves stand out from the crowd. Which means discounts for you! 🙌 Plus, bridal shows bring so many vendors together in one place, so you will save time ⏳ tracking down each aspect of your wedding.

If this is your first time attending a bridal show, these tips will make sure you are prepared to lock in amazing deals, stay organized and most importantly have the most fun ever! So here's to kicking wedding planning stress goodbye and planning your big day like a pro!! 👰👯‍♀️Scroll to the bottom, if you want details on which shows we will be at. We’re the ones with the blue veils!

1. Wedding Email

Create an email address 💻 that is easy to remember and reflective of your wedding day like: jackandjill2019@gmail.com or jackandjillwedding@gmail.com. You can use this address to give to wedding vendors, as an eco-friendly RSVP option, or to keep in touch with your wedding guests without having your personal email bombarded. There are so many free email options out there, but at Brilliant Bridal we choose to run everything on Gmail. It easily allows you to set up folders that you can use to organize your vendors.

2. Information Labels

One super easy thing you can do that will save you lots of time at bridal show is creating a contact information label. Many vendors will be offering giveaways and promos that will require your contact info and instead of writing this over and over again, a sheet or two of labels will save you from the dreaded writer's cramp! You can put as much or as little information on the label as you're comfortable with, but do make sure to include your full name, phone number, wedding date and your wedding email address at minimum.

3. Team Bride

A lot of brides-to-be like to bring a whole bride tribe to the bridal show to help make wedding planning decisions and to carry all the free goodies from vendors. Rather than inviting your entire bridal party, family and lifelong besties, consider selecting just a few key people to help you navigate the bridal show. Think fiancé, mom/MIL, MOH and sister/BFF. And if you have a hard time staying organized and on track, bring someone to keep you focused, or if you're more of a type A personality, bring a friend who will keep things light and stress free. 💁‍♀️

4. Calendar & Organizer

Bridal shows are an amazing opportunity to meet with a high quantity of wedding vendors in a short amount of time. So it's pretty likely that you'll meet a handful that you will want to remember to reach back out to. Before heading to the show, take a look at your calendar 🗓 to get a feel for which days or weeks you're available to schedule appointments. 📖 Many vendors (us included!) will offer a discount on their services, if you book and keep an appointment, so coming prepared to schedule appointments could end up saving you hundreds of dollars if not more!

5. Good Bag & Bad Bag

The bridal show will likely give you a bag at the start the show to keep all the fliers you’ll get. Bring a second bag, so you can make one bag your “good bag” 👍 for vendors you liked talking with and want to reach back out to. Then, you can use the other bag to create a “bad bag” 👎 to toss fliers you aren’t as interested in. This will help you keep your sanity when you’re back home after the show trying to remember which person you talked to worked where.

This is going to sound a lot like the advice you'd get from your mother the day before taking a big test, but don't tune us out, if you want to be on top of your game! (Not that you would ever tune your mom out. 😉) 1. Get some good sleep the night before. 2. Eat breakfast & drink plenty of water (plus bring snacks). 3. Wear comfortable shoes! It's amazing how being tired and hangry with sore feet affects your mood. 4. Arrive earlier than you think necessary, since parking can be time consuming.

Aside from that, plan to have the best day, meet some incredible wedding pros, taste all the samples and make a huge dent in your wedding planning checklist! We can’t wait to meet you!!

Our Brilliant Bride Kelsey | Boho Chic Meets Modern Romantic Backyard Wedding

Our Brilliant Bride Kelsey tied the knot with her groom Marcelo during a backyard ceremony at her childhood home in El Paso. Their Texas wedding was full of friends & family, string lights, pops of rust & yellow, and lots of love! The perfect blend of boho chic and modern romantic.

Kelsey said yes to the dress at our Brilliant Bridal Denver location during our $95 Dress Sale. She looked radiant in her strapless, taffeta gown by Dessy Bridal, accessorized with a dainty necklace, flowers in her hair, and a deep red lip. And we are obsessed with her bridesmaids dresses!!
