Floral Coral

Including a free complete wedding floral guide.


By now you must have heard about the very positive and joyful Pantone color of 2019, Living Coral (Pantone 16-1546). This color of the year was inspired by the underwater ecosystem and symbolizes our instinctive need for optimism, joy and playful expression. It is described as a vibrant but mellow hue that provides comfort and courage in times of change.

There are a variety of different ways to include this joyful shade into your floral arrangements. We’ve rounded up some effortless, winning options!

This warm, saturated orange with undertones of pink is extremely versatile. You can use it no matter what the season. It can be paired with bright Jaffa orange, burned ochre orange, or baby pastel pinks, as well as dark plum and even raspberry pink.

This year brides are going for a more edgy and individual approach. Be bold and on trend by stepping away from using blush. Instead, pair Living Coral with dark browns, dark navy and taupe, since coral exudes warmth without being too garish. If you’re daring, you could even pair coral with bright red and heaps of dark green foliage to soften the combination.

Floral installations are becoming more popular than flowers in vases, so be sure to have some hanging from the roof, create a floral wall, or even try bringing the outside in. Yes, we said it: bring big trees and bold plants into your venue! On a more practical note, consider using flowers like coral peonies, garden roses, hypericum berries or orchids.

Also be aware that floral accessories have taken the place of jewelry. Long, long gone are the days of tiaras. Instead, embellish your hair with a crown of flowers and foliage and exchange pearls for something fresh and floral. Be sure to have a look at the Top Bridal Trends for 2019.

To assist you in planning the floral décor and embellishments for your wedding, we have put together a FREE downloadable and complete wedding floral guide including a checklist, list of flowers in season and a planning worksheet for your convenience.

Enjoy and happy planning!
