Just fresh from New York Fashion Week 2013, the talented people at PANTONE have already come up with this amazing Spring 2014 colour trend report (click here for full report) that predicts the hottest shades in the coming season. Looking at the selected swatches, Spring 2014 sure looks exciting and full of surprises — apart from the usual pastel shades that can be said to be the mainstay for spring, vivid shades such as amber, tangerine and orchid also displayed a strong showing in the trend report. Looks like we can look forward to dynamic pieces this spring that play on the contrast between strong and weak colours to interest and effect!

As a fashion forward bride, PANTONE’s Spring 2014 palette can definitely be a great source for inspiration when planning your wedding. We’ve rounded up some inspiration (and pretty things) around the world wide web just to help get you started.

1. Mint x Violet
These gorgeous gowns from Romona Keveza look perfect in shades of mint and violet for Spring 2014! We’re loving the rosette detailing on the skirt as well.

2. Sky Blue x Tangerine
Put two and two together, and it seems that the shades of sky blue and tangerine would look perfect at a sunny outdoor wedding in Singapore! We know the heat can get overbearing — having your wedding reception begin when the sun is setting in the evening can be a romantic and practical solution!

3. Camel x Grey
While camel and grey may seem like unlikely choices for a colour palette for a wedding just because they seem so plain, you’ll be surprised to know that this palette can actually deliver rather impressive results for the classic, understated bride who is all about sublime elegance.

These pictures from Beautiful Blue Brides show how other couples have tastefully used camel shades to bring out a vintage and old-world charm to their weddings.

These ‘Save the Date’ cards from Zazzle are a nice twist from the predictable monotone combinations these geometrical cards usually come in.
