Pantone Color of 2011-Honeysuckle Pink

Yesterday, Pantone announced the color of 2011, which is Honeysuckle Pink! I LOVE PINK! Love it. What a fun and happy color. While this is officially the fashion color for spring we will see it quickly start appearing in wedding designing and bridesmaids dresses. As Audrey Hepburn once said, "I believe in Pink,  I believe in kissing, kissing a lot"!

It is a good idea to mix your pinks up too to include all shades of pink or even mix with other complementing colors like oranges and reds. To read the full pantone color report with all the other colors that are going to be hot go to the Spring Color Report for 2011 here. The other colors announced for Spring 2011 are peapod, coral rose, beeswax, silver peony, russet, regatta, blue curacao, lavender and silver cloud.  Check back every week for the next couple months as we highlight these new 2011 design colors on the blog every Friday!

A great tool to play around with Pantone colors for bridesmaids dresses and wedding colors is Dessy's Pantone Wedding. 

We will see this in bridesmaids dress and mother of the bride and mother of the groom dresses.
