Feathers Feathers and natural elements are taking a new form in weddings this year.  Instead of the over the top Gatsby look we’ve seen over the last few years, feathers are taking more unique and understated role in design showing up in gorgeous feather chandelier lighting, placemats and bridal accessories.

Pantone Colors – While I don’t think we will see a lot of Marsala, Pantone’s Color of the Year, in wedding design this year, we will see the colors of the season Aqua and Indigo as anchor colors with mint green as a complementary foundation color and bright accents of Strawberry, Tangerine and Custard as a cheery palette.
