Hues to Use: 2017 Pantone Color of the Year - Greenery | Arizona Weddings Magazine

Pantone unveiled its 2017 Pantone Color of the Year, and we are happy to introduce you to the lush shade of Greenery! Representing life, fluidity, and infinite rebirth, Greenery comes to us as a reminder of springtime when all things – including love – bloom. The yellow undertone lessens the cool effect of the shade, and instead gives it a vivacious appearance that is refreshing and wholesome. This vibrant tone is the opposite of modern day living, with its stone-cold buildings and metallic phones and devices. Instead, Greenery embraces us with a breath of fresh air. It is a color to connect us with ourselves and to our world in the midst of stressful situations and constant change.

A vibrant green color that exudes a zest for life, Greenery is the epitome of all things new. That makes it a perfect shade to incorporate into your Arizona wedding, as you and your spouse celebrate your new life together. Green is considered to be Nature’s neutral shade, and the paler tone can be found in many of Arizona’s native brush such as the palo verde and mesquite trees. And do not forget the cacti and succulents! These picturesque plants are uniquely “Arizona,” and look stunning against a backdrop of majestic red mountains or in pots of contrasting navy and orange. We love the idea of tiny cacti party favors, succulent bouquets, leafy garlands, saguaros wrapped in twinkling lights, and prickly pear margaritas. Bridesmaids can strut down the aisle wearing airy dresses in shades of Greenery as you say your “I dos” with the sun setting over the amazing mountains in the distance. With the use of Greenery, the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year, your Arizona wedding is sure to be a lively event to remember.
