2012 Color Trends Will Likely Be…

Since 2001, I have been reporting color trends for brides on my website “My Personal Artist.” After much research, from several sources (human and text) I have compiled the colors most likely to trend in 2012. Every single year I truly enjoy predicting what colors will trend a year in advance!

I am happy to report the colors vary dramatically. More subtle hues will rule with a tiny splash of electric color. My favorite is TEAL and PURPLE combo! So modern, fresh, and inviting! {See the recent Peacock Feather Invitations design I have created below, for a REAL CLIENT.}

Above, the first image, you will find color combos I have created for your viewing pleasure. You certainly can mix and match as you see fit. Use this blog post (do not print as image is low res and colors will vary) to share with your wedding vendors. They will assist you in finding the best options for you. Regarding names for these colors, I am not revealing names or color codes. As time goes on when 2012 arrives you will know the names that are being used for said colors. Also, remember to be creative and a bit laid back with your color choices as all vendors may not be able to meet your color needs (ribbon, tablecloths, napkins, dresses, etc.). Again, always ask your vendors in advance and have fun!

I want to know your favorite combination of these colors and what you LOVE about them. Comment away! …
