Introducing the color everybody’s talking about: Marsala! We’ve been swooning over this deep burgundy-red ever since Pantone revealed it as the new “it” color last week. This sophisticated shade would make the perfect addition to a rich, romantic palette, a lovely complement to a jewel tone scheme, or even a nice accent to an organic, woodsy aesthetic. Check out our Marsala gallery for some great ways to infuse your wedding decor with what Pantone calls a “hearty yet stylish tone.”

There are so many elements that go into making your big day look cohesive and coordinated. From the decor and the linens, to the attire and flowers, it’s important that everything goes hand-in-hand. On top of that- there’s a color scheme to abide by! We’re here to give you a few things to think about before picking your palette. Seasonality and venue, among other things, are especially important to think about. Read on for our list of 6 things to keep in mind when narrowing down your options.

Here at WeddingWire, we’re always looking for the top wedding trends from around the country. So every week, we’ll ask a group of vendors from all over the U.S. the same question and share their (often very different!) answers.

This week, we asked wedding planners from around the country: What is the hot color scheme in your neck of the woods at the moment? Why do you think this color scheme is so popular right now? What season and/or type of venue do you think this type of color palette would work best in?

Katie Hess of Seize the Day Events in Green Bay, Wisconsin: “Neutral and natural palettes featuring colors like burlap, golds, and champagnes. Brides are moving toward more eco-friendly, natural, and personal weddings – nothing fake or plastic. This color scheme would fit in well in a garden, on a beach, or at a home on the lake.”
