If you’re planning a wedding, now is a great time to think about the color scheme. The Pantone Wedding Colours 2021 are perfect.

Pantone’s colours of the year can easily be your Pantone wedding colours of 2021. The Ultimate Grey and Illuminating (yellow) are described as “A marriage of color conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting.” Isn’t this symbolic of what is to come?

There are so many ways you can incorporate the Pantone wedding colours of 2021 into your special day. The combination of Ultimate Grey and Illuminating are meant to be “practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic.” In keeping with the reason why the two colours were chosen, it’s easy to see how they can be integrated into your wedding.

Groom and bridal wear

This colour combo was almost meant to be for weddings. Imagine the groomsmen wearing Ultimate Grey suits, with Illuminating tie and handkerchief peeping out from their pockets. The bridesmaids wearing beautiful off-shoulder dresses in Illuminating, with Ultimate Grey trims and shoes, plus one piece of jewelry in one or both colours. Or perhaps Ultimate Grey dresses with vibrant yellow bouquets. The two colours work brilliantly, and before this year were not seen together as often in weddings.


The colour combination was meant to give a feeling of resilience and hope. What better way to reflect that than in your flower arrangements? Bouquets for the bride and bridesmaids, perhaps flowers worn in the hair too. And at the reception as centrepieces for each table and throughout the venue for further decoration.


Tying in with the flowers, the two colours can be a theme right through the ceremony and reception. Tablecloths and chair covers are a must. Then there are backdrops, placemats, and napkin rings, alternating in either one of the colours, or in a design combining both. Even the menus can feature these colours.


Your wedding marks the beginning of journey, a new chapter in your lives. Get on board with this beautiful colour palette and embrace these symbols of stability and hope. It couldn’t be more apropos to married life.
