Pantone's Color of the Year for 2015: Marsala

pantone marsala

The color experts at Pantone have narrowed down their top 16 colors for 2015 and named Marsala — a "naturally robust and earthy wine red" — the color of the year for 2015. This subdued hue is in sharp contrast to the shades selected in recent years: 2014's radiant orchid, 2013's emerald, and 2012's tangerine tango. It works wonderfully as a base color for your wedding, and it can be complemented either by warm tones, like orange, yellow, or coral, or cool tones, like blue or purple. Here, check out some gorgeous wedding inspiration for this color.
