The news is out! Pantone has released their 2022 color of the year – Very Peri, the first Color of the Year invented by Pantone. This color was developed to help us embrace the altered landscape of possibilities in front of us as we emerge from an intense period of isolation. Very Peri places the future ahead, opening us to a new vision as we rewrite our lives. As Pantone sets the tone in design for the year ahead, what can this mean for the following year's weddings?

The History of The Pantone's Color of the Year

Since 2000, Pantone has selected a color that reflects color trends that are influential for the upcoming year.

Months leading to the announcement, experts at the Pantone Color Institute scour the world for new color influences. These influences can come from almost anything. They've taken inspiration from entertainment, art, global culture, and even socio-economic conditions. Twice a year, Pantone hosts secret meetings with various nation's color standard groups. After two days of presentations and debates, a color that will shape the expression of the upcoming year is chosen.
