2016 may be half over, but it's not too late to start planning the 2017 wedding of your dreams. Adapted from Pantone's choice colors for next year, these pretty palettes are designed to inspire you to break free of the traditional (and boring) wedding color restraints.
Winter 2017: Monochromatic Mood
A winter marriage doesn't have to be a gloomy occasion. A silver and white palette will transform an ordinary wedding aisle into a glamorous catwalk.
Colors: #666666, #878787, #d9d9d9, #ffffff
This color palette is not for the timid. Shades of silver and white couple elegance and opulence effortlessly, and immerse the wedding party in a wintery fairytale. If you're a bride that doesn't look her best in white, break tradition with a touch of shimmer on your gown. (Bonus: If you accidentally spill wine on your gown, it'll be hardly noticeable!) Add crystal accents for glamorous twist on your bouquet, goblet, or even veil. (See our blog A Touch of Nature Wedding Accessories for more crystal veil designs)

Wooden Watch: Stainless Steel River
Men need a silver accessory piece to complement the theme...and, let's face it, their choices are limited.
Spring 2017: Let It Grow
Reminiscent of Pantone's Florabundant palette, these Spring 2017 wedding colors mimic the beauty of spring and its pastel floral hues.
Colors: #ffd4d7, #6acf7d, #d9ca9c, #ffffff
Ahh, the sweet smell of spring. Babies are born, flowers bloom, and love flourishes. This color palette is a bold tribute to nature's magic. Creative ideas include flower embellishments on the wedding cake, wildflower bouquets, and decorative hanging planters. A lacy blush pink wedding dress is both feminine and traditional, but will turn heads as you walk down the aisle. Seal the deal with a soft pink morganite ring. All in all, an innate softness makes this neutral palette of soft pink, sage, and a hint of champagne look dreamlike and just so cozy.
For the grooms and groomsmen:
Someone's gotta incorporate eccentric colors in this natural inspired and neutral palette.
Summer 2017: A Sunshiny Day
Colors: #7ba0ff, #2bb2e6, #fffd53, #f8ffbe
Yellow and blue may resemble college mascot colors more than wedding colors, but the combo can still be an excellent choice (if not a little crazy). On the bright side, yellow is a cheerful color that will bring happiness and joy to all your wedding guests. Who wouldn't want to dig into a plate of dazzling yellow cake? It's also easy to incorporate yellow as an accent color, considering all of nature's gorgeous golden flowers out there just waiting to be tied around a napkin or displayed in a blue vase. If you're eyeing a beach wedding, consider this the perfect color palette, reminiscent of the sky and the sun.
For the groom and groomsmen:
Let the men in the party match the wedding colors with their ties...and watches.
Fall 2017: Rustic Dream
Colors: #ba5f3d, #658760, #ef612a
Hands down, rustic weddings are dreamy, heartwarming, creative, and different. 2017 rustic fall wedding trends are inspired by nature's organics (especially wood) and simultaneously dull, yet vibrant, colors. This palette intertwines very earthen and autumn colors, including amber and sage green, with a hint of bright orange for the wedding gown. With details like a naked cake, a gold leaf headband, and a arch crafted of twisted branches, these wedding colors blend rural and urban sensibilities (see 9 Essential Tips for a Nature Inspired Wedding).
