Pantone Color of the Year for 2013 ~ EMERALD

Yesterday was always an exciting day for the event industry!  Pantone released the Color of the Year for 2013.  We will now see so many clients that want to use the EMERALD color as part of their wedding design.  I thought that I would show you some ways to incorporate the color EMERALD into your dream wedding.  Emerald Green was actually the color of my bridesmaids dresses 15 years ago. "Most often associated with brilliant, precious gemstones, the perception of Emerald is sophisticated and luxurious. Since antiquity, this luminous, magnificent hue has been the color of beauty and new life in many cultures and religions. It’s also the color of growth, renewal and prosperity – no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity. “Green is the most abundant hue in nature – the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world." ~ www.pantone.com
