Pantone's 2014 Color of the Year: Predictions

So what did you think of Pantone's 2013 Color of the Year, Emerald???


Did you see it in weddings this year?

As 2013 comes to a close in a little over a month, what color do you think Pantone will reveal next to be part of the 2014 year wedding trends? For those that do not know, Pantone Inc., a world renowned company is THE authoritative leader and provider on color systems. Industries including interior design, designers, architects, and wedding professionals look to Pantone for color palates and definitions. If you check out your local home improvement store, you will see a Pantone color swatch area in or around the paint section of the store.

How does this relate to wedding design?
Year 2014 Brides who are trendy along with their stylish wedding designers, look to design gurus such as Pantone, to utilize color as a tool to assist in their wedding design details. Color is a great way to help interpret a glamorous event, such as a wedding.

Pantone will reveal the highly anticipated
 2014 Color of the Year on December 5, 2013. 

I want to know your predictions!

Although I love colors "Tiffany Blue", turquoise, and mint (Two out of these 3 colors are Wed Becomes Her Wedding Planning & Coordination Co. colors, can you guess which two?), I personally do not think a color from that family will be the color for 2014, since we saw the color "Aqua Sky" and "Blue Turquoise" as the 2003 and 2009 (respectively) Pantone color of the year.


Based on this year's Bridal Fashion Week, the week of October 14 held in New York city, we saw lots of dresses that had various shades of soft hues. I am going to predict the 2014 color of the year as a blush pink or a color in the pink family. If I were to guess another color, I would say a color from the gray or brown family like Paloma. Now let's watch on December 5, I will probably be wrong, ha!

My predictions go against what others such as major style magazines have predicted what the 2014 Pantone Color of the year will be, which many have predicted the deep "Dazzling Blue". I wonder if they have inside information???

Until Dec 5, we can still construct our Pinterest boards, and embrace Emerald for the little time we have left with it. However, it's time for a fresh color palate for a jump on year 2014 inspirations.

What are your 2014 Pantone Color of the Year projections, or popular color palates that may appear in year 2014?

Did you or anyone you know incorporate the 2013 Pantone Color of the Year Emerald in their wedding design? If so, please share in our comments section!

Our First Q&A Session: Wedding Planning Office Hour

On Saturday, November 16, at 10:00am EST we hosted our first Wedding Planner(Planning) Office Hour!

You are probably wondering,

"What is Wedding Planner Office Hour?"

I am so glad you asked! 

Think back to when you were in school, and your teacher set aside his or her office hours for you(student) outside of their normal teaching hours to teach, tutor, or spend additional time on material you didn't understand during normal teaching hours.

Wedding Planner Office Hour is loosely based on the concept of a teacher's office hours. More clearly, Wedding Planner Office Hour is a Question and Answer format geared to engaged brides and grooms who can have their questions about their wedding plans answered by a wedding planner live on a broadcast.

Although Wed Becomes Her Wedding Planning & Coordination Co. is an Atlanta based wedding company, our Wedding Planner Office Hour is streamed online for anyone to watch via the Wed Becomes Her Google+ channel, on the last Friday of each month at 8pm EST. If you are not able to make it to the session, don't worry! Our session on our Google+ channel is recorded to our YouTube channel, WedBecomesHer . If you miss the session, you will miss out on asking us questions, but you can watch our session if you are unable to make it to the session. To ensure notifications of new uploads of our sessions to our YouTube channel, make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel.

Anyone can watch the session, but if you would like to ask questions you may need to have a Google account, i.e. a Gmail email.  You can also send your questions to us ahead of Wedding Planner Office Hour to our Facebook page, 

Last Saturday, at 10am EST we conducted our first session. Although, we didn't receive any questions, we provided book reviews on popular wedding planning books brides and grooms may come into contact during their planning process. Wedding Planner Office Hour is also an opportunity for Wed Becomes Her to discuss, talk about topics that may be of interest to those involved in the wedding planning process.

You may have noticed in the beginning of this post that "Wedding Planner Office Hour" had "(Planning)" around the title. We are playing around with the title, so that it can be more clear to those who have not heard of it. So moving forward for right now, we will call it Wedding Planning Office Hour.

We hope as a bride, groom, bridesmaid, members or parents of the bridal party can join us on our next Wedding Planning Office Hour, the last Friday of each month on our Google+ page. You can ask your questions during the session, or send them ahead of time on our Facebook page/inbox. Hope to see you!

The next Wedding Planning Office Hour is on Friday, December 27 at 8pm EST.

Did you happen to catch our first session? Would love to know what you thought.

Do you know of any brides and grooms who may benefit from our Wedding Planning Office Hour? Bridesmaids, Groomsmen, parents, guests of bridal party are welcomed too!
Please be sure to share this resource to them!
