Very Peri: The Wedding Colour of the Year


Across the world of fashion, the Pantone Colour of the Year is a very big deal!

The colour chosen trickles down into fashion trends, nail varnish hues and even interior choices. So, it is no surprise that this colour is often a major influence in the world of weddings!

For 2022, Pantone has selected a brand new shade, Very Peri!

Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director at the Pantone Color Institute highlights this new colour is ‘Encompassing the qualities of the blues, yet at the same time possessing a violet-red undertone, PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri displays a spritely, joyous attitude and dynamic presence that encourages courageous creativity and imaginative expression.’

Let’s take a look at how you can incorporate Very Peri into your wedding:
