Boosting My Color Palette Confidence via Pinterest

Since Fashion Week ended recently, I started seeing some pins pop up in my Pinterest feed about the color trends for 2016. Since we are getting married in 2016 I was curious–will our wedding be on trend? I guess if it wasn’t it wouldn’t really matter as long as it felt “us” –but when I found out the fashion and color forecasters love the same colors (and patterns) I do I felt even more at ease.

Now, not all of the colors of our wedding are “on trend”, (at least according to the all-powerful Pantone). The “radiant orchid” that was the 2014 color of the year which is about the same color as what I keep calling fuchsia, was not included in the Pantone color forecast for Spring/Summer of 2016 but is included in others (like the Marchesa Ready-to-Wear line below). I was also pleased to see that gold glitter and black and white stripes are going to be a big thing next spring! How French!

Is the wedding you’ve planned “on trend”? Who do you look to follow trends from?
