Pantone's 2011 Color of the Year.
"Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you,
lift you and carry you through the year. It’s a color for every day – with nothing “everyday” about it."
That's right, Pantone announced this week their always anticipated color of the year. This year we can look forward to the energizing but oh-so girly Honeysuckle. As usual, the wedding industry is on that like white on rice. Dessy group has already added it to their line of Pantone coordinated dresses and accessories.
One of the reasons we just love Dessy is the fact that there is none of that, "well-I-guess-its-close-enough" fun that usually comes with wedding planning. The groom's tie will match the bridesmaid dress that will match their shoes that will match their accessories. There's no guess work, or telling the bridesmaids not to stand directly next to the groom because they don't quite match. And as stationary designers, we just love it because you can tell us what your Pantone is and then that's one more thing that will coordinate perfectly. And there is nothing more satisfying then knowing that your "interior decorator" aunt or that nit-picky coworker won't be able to exclaim loudly that, "those colors doesn't match!" in front of everyone. Mission accomplished.
