A new colour that's trending and our ears perk up. Really, as the year draws to an end, we needed a softer note to start off 2016 with. By now, you already know that 2016 is jampacked with goodness for weddings - for the first time, Pantone - the decider of the wedding palette has taken on the blending of two shades – Rose Quartz and Serenity and yes, both are the current trend - the colour of 2016. Okay okay, we love baby pink and we love that light blue - this is beginning to look like it's for babies. Blue for boys and pink for girls..just kidding! But really, baby pink and blue are not exactly that - they have a bit more grown up punch - an almost salmon-blush-pink and a blue-windy-lilac-ish vibe. Like i said, grown-up! And we're already excited for this palette - especially at weddings. But first, our only advise is: use them in a mature way, with specks of it, a few drapes of it and let it not give out a kiddy-vibe.

But yes, see how soothing they are - and there is a certain kind of reassurance and security that comes with them. The pantone website also says that the prevalent combination of Rose Quartz and Serenity challenges traditional perceptions of colour association.

If we are lucky, we'll see how these pretty colours make way into spectacular weddings. #fingerscrossed!
