How Pantone's 2017 Colour of The Year Was Used in Wedding Flowers

This year has flown by so quickly, we can't believe that 2017 is nearly over! This year, there were lots of lush greenery in wedding arrangements and florals! It's no wonder that 'Greenery', is Pantone's 2017 Color of the Year. Greenery (the colour, as well as the actual greens!) and florals go together like wine and cheese.

We are so excited to share with you Lime Tree Bower's couples who incorporated 'Greenery' in their wedding colour palette, each with their own bespoke styles, adding in touches of 2017 Pantone colour pairings.
