Pantone has announced its spring 2018 colors for men and women, which you will find reflected in bridesmaid dresses, men’s formalwear and other items.
As you look at these colors, keep in mind that your monitor, tablet or phone does not give accurate representations of these colors. Color printed on paper reflects differently from fabric, so it is not reliable either. For the best representations of your wedding colors, use fabric swatches. Buy one yard of fabric—enough for you to cut out pieces to share with your florist, bridal apparel store, men’s formalwear store and other vendors.
