How to use coral in your floral décor
Here’s how you can incorporate Pantone’s colour of the year, Living Coral, in almost every aspect of your wedding
With Living Coral declared as the Pantone colour of the year, get set to see this hue across all forms of décor, especially flowers. Jasneet Chowdhary of Eventfully Yours Designs, shares, “Undoubtedly, Living Coral will be dominant in floral [décor]. Dark hues set against pale tones of this shade will amplify and uplift the space giving it a niche and distinctive look. Pastels will continue to rule big at weddings as seen at Priyanka-Nick’s wedding.”
With coral being a soft, subtle and pleasant hue, here are some ways in which it can be incorporated in your wedding.
As coral flowers are available throughout the year, one would not have to think twice before choosing this colour as the theme of the wedding. If you have a summer wedding, then coral-hued gerbera daisies can be used in the décor. And if you’re tying the knot in the winters, then coral roses and peonies placed against other pastel colours can make for a pleasant décor.
Defining the overall décor of the wedding, centrepieces make a bold statement in terms of their grandeur. One can make this majestic piece a talking point among guests by opting for a combination of coral gerbera daisies, pink roses and white chrysanthemums either lined up or placed in a bunch at the centre of the table.
If the theme of the wedding is Living Coral, then using the colour in bridal bouquets and jaimalas would be an obvious choice. Exotic flowers such as coral orchids and daisies, when used with white or red roses can bring out the beauty of the hue and add an element of freshness in weddings. Also, brides can add the gracefulness of this hue in their floral jewellery that would beautifully complement their outfits in pre-wedding ceremonies.
Dangling from Above
Gone are the days when marigolds were the only flowers used as suspended installations. Although they are still used, flowering vines such as coral-hued trumpet vines and bougainvillea hanging from floral baskets are also in trend, and make for interesting attractions in weddings.
