Ways to Incorporate Pantone’s Spring 2016 Colors Into Your Wedding Color Scheme

new year's engagementEvery dating couple hopes that each year’s New Year’s Eve will be a memorable one and one that causes sparks to fly everywhere, especially in the romance department. With the possible exception of Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Eve is the most popular night or day for marriage proposals. Once you and your fiance have decided to get married, you may be wondering about what happens next. At Bice’s Florist, we know that our Fort Worth area customers will want to do their weddings on the same grand scale that Texans choose for every special occasion.


We thought we’d use this blog to help you get a head start on those all important wedding planning preparations.


Come Up With a Theme for Your Wedding


The launching point for any wedding plan is the theme. Most couples choose a theme that relates to a pivotal moment in their relationship. The theme can also revolve around a couple’s shared interest. Think of the things you like to do together, or things that are important to you.


Think About a Color Scheme


The color scheme is another important element in any wedding plan. An excellent resource for seasonal color information is Pantone. For Spring of 2016, Pantone is showcasing a palette of gender neutral colors. The palette is also vividly bright. The bright color scheme that Pantone is showing is a reflection of the predominate colors that the fashion industry will use during the Spring 2016 season. Think of Pantone Spring palette as possible colors for your bridal party’s dresses, ties, bouquets, ceremony flowers, boutonnieres, corsages and other flowers.


One of the colors that Pantone shows for Spring 2016 is a color called Peach Echo. It is more of a coral color than an orange as the color of peaches. “Lily Sensation” is an excellent example of a flower arrangement that would be a beautiful bouquet or centerpiece. It has orange or coral colored lilies, roses, Birds of Paradise, and purple dendrobium orchids.


Bright yellow is another spring color for 2016. No flower captures the essence of the brilliance of sunshine than Stunning Sunflowers. The addition of yellow roses dresses up the simplicity of sunflowers, and red hypericum berries contribute more color and brightness. This combination of flowers and flower colors captures the feeling of optimism that Pantone expressed in the release about the new spring colors.


If you got engaged on New Year’s Eve, don’t wait to start planning your wedding. You can count on our floral design experts to help you create the wedding of your dreams.


5 Reasons to Consider a Winter Wedding

winter weddingWinter weddings offer a break from the expected and can bring unparalleled elegance to your celebration. While everyone seems to want a spring or summertime wedding, winter brings with it a number of design and décor options that you might not have thought of otherwise. The following are five of the top design and decor reasons you should consider planning a winter wedding:

1. Winter Whites

White is a primary wedding color, and the winter season is characterized by brilliant shades of winter white. The bride’s dress is traditionally white, and just about any flower type can look amazing in this pristine hue. But while the all-white look can work amazingly well as a main décor motif, white is also extremely chic as an accent color.

2. Subtle Ivories and Greys

A winter wedding setting can also be exquisitely accented with subtle tones that are not too far removed from white, like ivory and light grey. Just about any flower type will accent this color palette, from deep colored roses to pastel or white flowers with subtle, detailed petal structures. Orchids, tulips, carnations and spray roses can also work well for winter weddings.

3. Exquisite Accent Flowers

It’s easy to accent winter bouquets and centerpieces with flowers that are complementary to the season. Consider using white hydrangea, dusty miller, ranunculuses, anemones, silver brunia and pastel touches to create the perfect accents and additions to take their breath away.

4. Holiday Touches

A winter wedding offers the opportunity for a Christmas or other holiday season tie-in. Subtle touches of red and evergreen can serve as an ideal accent for a grey or ivory theme. Consider working in other holiday elements like holly leaves, mistletoe, pinecones and hints of evergreen into the décor. These flourishes can bring a delightful spirit to your winter wedding nuptials.

5. Anything Goes

While white and shades of red and green traditionally usher in the holiday season, the truth is that any color can beautifully accent grey and ivory. From deep regal violet hues to warm tones, it’s up to you. Get the perfect look for your taste and style with flower and décor choices that create the ideal backdrop for your special day.

A wedding during the winter season holds numerous opportunities for uniquely elegant décor. Consider these top reasons to design a winter wedding, and contact Bice’s Florist to place your winter wedding flower order.
