Marsala Magic – how to make the colour of the year work for your wedding

Each year, the colour experts Pantone choose their colour of the year, along with a palette of other trend predictions. This year, marsala has been given the honours. A rich, berry tone, it is a gorgeous choice, and works really well with a wide variety of other shades. It is however a traditionally wintery tone, and on first look you may wonder how this could possibly work for a spring/summer wedding.

The trick is in how you use it – choose quality over quantity! Remember, your colour choice should not overpower your wedding style, but rather enhance it. It could be as simple as a floral accent, cocktail or piece of jewellery. Combine with other colours to create the perfect palette. For a whimsical spring wedding, combine with aquamarine and a soft cream. For a glamorous summer look, pair it with a pale sparkling gold. If you were a fan of primrose yellow and grey last year, pair marsala with glacier grey this year for a grown-up take on the colour combination.
