Incorporating Pantone's Colour of the Year within your micro wedding

by Ellen-Rose Brown

Much like the union between you and your partner on your micro wedding day, Pantone’s colour of the year for 2021 highlights how two separate elements can join to create something beautiful. We love the symbolism of strength, positivity and hope that the Ultimate Gray and Illuminating combination represents. After a year of postponed weddings and disappointment, the message behind the union of these two hues certainly rings true with many couples. In fact, we expect to see many couples combining Ultimate Gray and Illuminating for their wedding colour scheme and theme this year.

As soon as we heard the Pantone colour of 2021, we immediately thought of bright bold yellow bridal shoes, spring bouquets and charming grey coastal wedding touches. If you’re thinking of including the Pantone colour of the year at your micro wedding or intimate wedding in 2021 take a look at our hot tips below.

Incorporating Ultimate Gray and Illuminating into your micro wedding day

We love seeing the bright bridal shoes that many of our Wedition brides choose as their something new. Adding a splash of colour with yellow shoes, can help showcase your personality and incorporate your wedding colour scheme into your outfit. You could wear bright sunshine yellow heels during the day and swap to dance the night away in comfy illuminating yellow Converse wedding trainers. For grooms we love the idea of bright yellow bow ties paired with a sophisticated grey suit, or pairing yellow checked trousers with grey tails.

Of course, when planning your micro wedding colour scheme, it’s important to consider how you will incorporate this into your floral displays and bridal bouquet. Illuminating yellow instantly conjures up thoughts of sunshine and warmth - perfect for summer and spring themed weddings. To create a bouquet for your spring wedding add daffodils and tulips, or pick a bouquet of sunflowers for your summer wedding. Ultimate Gray however is the ideal way to add sophistication to your floral displays which can easily be achieved through little touches such as grey ribbons or grey feathers (we love this colour at winter weddings especially.)

Both hues of Ultimate Gray and Illuminating yellow have been popular choices for bridesmaids’ dresses for many years. For an elegant look choose grey dresses paired with yellow accessories. Or if you’re dreaming of a traditional spring themed wedding, pastel yellow dresses are ideal.

Unique Ultimate Gray and Illuminating micro wedding ideas

What better way to make an entrance on your micro wedding day than to hire an Illuminating yellow or Ultimate Grey wedding car. If you’re looking for a unique wedding car for your spring or summer themed wedding, there’s nothing better than hiring a VW bus. They make for great backdrops for photos too and some can even be converted into a space to display your unique micro wedding cake.

Embrace Ultimate Gray and Illuminating and turn your wedding cake into a statement on your special day. You could opt for a bright sunshine iced cake adorned with white daisies or incorporate special elements from your love story and micro wedding theme into your cake just like Wedition couple Paula and Scott did for their summer themed wedding.

Wedition Hot Tip:  A unique way to incorporate Ultimate Gray and Illuminating into your wedding day is with a sand ceremony. You can source sand in both colours and then take it in turns to pour the two sands into one memorable keepsake to represent your two lives joining together.

Real Wedition weddings: H&A yellow and grey equestrian themed wedding was a real hit with their wedding guests, especially as they chose to have a yellow and grey personalised wedding magazine showcasing their story! They used Wedition to share the hen party details and photos, included the history of their wedding venue, introduced the wedding party, had a fun Mr and Mrs style quiz, shared their story in numbers and even included an article 'written' by their horses and dog! Such a great keepsake for their guests to take home with them.
