Get ready for some wedding colour inspiration. Rose Quartz is the warmer, more feminine of the colour Duo. It is a gorgeous light, almost dusty pink shade, and works particularly well for weddings. This year, we have been seeing a lot of brides moving towards calmer colour pallets, keeping bright accent colours to a minimum. Pantone Rose Quartz can be combined with darker shades of Pink, particularly Pantone Orchid Haze, Nostalgia Haze or Fig. These colours will definitely bring rich, warm tones to your colour scheme. Particularly if you are getting married in the winter. Combine with off-whites, creams, ivories, coppers, rose golds and deep, rich pinks.
Rose Quartz Wedding Colour Inspiration
Brides and Bridesmaids Dresses
Rose Quartz is a lovely colour for a bride and can be very easily incorporated. Your wedding dress will be the talking point of the year if you want to be a little daring. Move away from the traditional white gown! This colour is soft, romantic and feminine. A wedding dress in this colour is sure to look spectacular. To ensure you keep the softness of the colour, opt for soft and flowing fabrics, rather than structured and stiff fabrics. If you have always dreamed of a white gown, you can certainly accessorise with Rose Quartz. From shoes to jewellery, this colour can be added almost anywhere. Even your bridesmaids are sure to love the colour if you choose to make their dresses in Rose Quartz. The best advice is to have flattering, longer and flowing dresses made – you don’t want them looking like meringues!
Grooms and Groomsmen Outfits
Pretty in Pink is not exclusively for us girls anymore – we have seen more and more men incorporate this beautiful shade into their wardrobes too! Rose Quartz works well with blues and grays, so it will certainly be a lovely accent for the men on the wedding day whatever the suit looks like! You can use different fabrics to have ties or bowties made with the correct colour scheme but with a little variation. You could also make them all the same colour and add a pocket square to make them look oh so dapper.
Rose Colour Decor
A combination of Rose Quartz, pale greens, purples, champagne, copper or rose gold will bring a certain level of whimsical romance to your Wedding Decor. This colour lends itself well to pale shades. Just remember to add plenty of candles or fairy lights to keep the ambience throughout the evening. For your flowers, we especially love Peonies and English Roses in this colour – you want a big, soft flower. Anchor with light green succulents to create some dimension.
According to Pantone
: “In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted colour trends throughout all other areas of design. This more unilateral approach to colour is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity. The consumer’s increased comfort with using colour as a form of expression. A generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to colour usage.”
About Pantone Rose Quartz: “Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Whether in soft or hard surface material, the pairing of Rose Quartz and Serenity brings calm and relaxation. Appealing in all finishes, matte, metallic and glossy, the engaging combo joins easily with other mid-tones. Including greens and purples, rich browns, and all shades of yellow and pink.”
