The Pantone colour of the year is always a good indicator of wedding trends for the year ahead. This year, the colour is ‘very peri’, which is a bold and confident shade of blue, with a subtle hint of purple lilac.

The shade symbolises creativity and confidence, so we’re fairly certain it will feature heavily in weddings throughout the year. Very Peri is a luxurious and opulent shade that will pair perfectly with luxe styling but is also versatile enough to become the perfect accent colour in a rustic DIY wedding. Read on to learn our top tips for introducing this stunning shade to your wedding day.


Perhaps the easiest way to add a pop of colour to your wedding day is with your choice of flowers. For a luxurious bouquet and centrepieces, choose flowers like lilac and periwinkle paired with soft cream and bold greens. For a rustic wedding, pair lavender with dried flowers and grasses for a boho vibe. Head to Flora & Daisy for more inspiration.

Bridesmaids dresses

Very Peri would be the perfect colour for bridesmaid dresses to offer a stark contrast to a white gown. You could also choose a pop of colour with hair florals or bold blue shoes. Many brides are also turning their backs on white or ivory for their wedding dresses and instead choosing watercolour shades or embroidered dresses. Introducing a pop of colour to your own dress would be a unique take on traditional wedding attire. Amara Bridal should be your first stop for stunning wedding attire.

Wedding decor

Another incredible way to include colour in your big day is with your venue decor. This could include table settings, chair covers, drapes and even a stunning blue flower wall as a backdrop for photos. Working with a company like KD Events or Love Lilly can help you to achieve the perfect balance of colour throughout your venue.


To continue the theme throughout your wedding, don’t forget about your groomsmen. If you are choosing a rustic theme, then your groomsmen will look great with sprigs of matching lavender for boutonnières. For a luxury wedding, choose periwinkle or lilacs. Groomsmen could also wear Very Peri-inspired pocket squares, ties or bowtie

Blue might not be the first colour you think of when it comes to decorating your wedding cake, but it can make a bold statement, particularly when paired with pristine white icing. You could opt for an ombre or watercolour design for a dramatic impact. You could also opt for cupcakes decorated with Very Peri icing, surrounding a pristine white cake decorated with periwinkle. Head to Buttercups or Claire’s Sweet Temptations, for plenty of wedding cake inspiration.


Give your guests a clue of what is to come by including this beautiful shade in your wedding invites. Very Peri matches perfectly with gold for a luxurious feel, or pair it with light grey or white for a rustic and relaxed feel.
