The bold color Illuminating brightens any day and reflects the joy of your wedding weekend. Play up this color for a carefree summer wedding or for a sunny outdoor reception.
Pair these Illuminating sandals with this Anne Barge polka dot dress for an outfit that’s simultaneously classic and fun. V-necks and delicate strappy heels are timeless details that allow textured ruching and bright colors to take center stage as you greet your guests for the first round of wedding weekend festivities.
Intricate beading, dimensional lace, and a subtly sexy sheer sheath add visual interest to this ivory gown and enough flexibility to play up Illuminating accents. If you’re feeling classic, opt for gold or pearl jewelry and some muted gold ankle-strap sandals, but if you’re feeling fun, try these Gianvito Rossi leather strappy pumps. From the trendy gold chain ankle tie to the pointed toe, these yellow treasures are sure to be a showstopper when they peek out from under your gown.
The delicate lace detailing on this Eva Lendel jumpsuit has us speechless. Embellishments on golden silk-satin mules bring cohesion to a statement-shoe outfit. Add one or two more touches of yellow with a beaded headband or a delicate clutch for a finishing touch.
Dress your bridesmaids in a silky sunshine yellow to accentuate the radiance of your wedding weekend. Pair neutral strappy heels and classic diamond jewelry with your bridesmaids’ gowns to soften the look and to play up elegant shades of gold.
With a few pops of Illuminating accents, your groom will look on-trend while sporting a classic blue or gray suit. The yellow polka dots on these Tie Bar navy dress socks will peek out from a pair of classic Italian leather derby wingtip oxfords and coordinate with a golden yellow tie. Add a yellow rose boutonniere to your groom’s or groomsmen’s outfits for a subtle wink to this Pantone trend.
Have fun and let loose as newlyweds in bright Illuminating fashion. Keep the fabrics light and breezy, but with lots of color. Timeless sandals or espadrilles and simple jewelry are sure to complete your daytime look. When it’s time to hit the beach, grab a yellow swimsuit and a big floppy hat to soak in all the sun. And what outfit would be complete without a fun pair of sunglasses to match the mood?

Pantone’s other 2021 color Ultimate Gray is a neutral and dependable shade that will create a timeless wedding aesthetic for many years to come. Brighten the neutral tones of gray with accents of sparkle to make your wedding palette feel both classic and on-trend.
The soft blue and silver detailing in these two gowns shimmer with elegance, matching the glow of a soon-to-be bride. Opt for diamond studs and subtle sparkle pumps for a showstopper look that feels effortless.
Modern brides are looking beyond traditional ivory in favor of statement-making shades, as seen in this Monique Lluillier gown sporting elegant metallic accents. Pair it with this editorial-inspired beaded veil and sparkly pumps for a more glam look or with these stunning pointed-toe Jimmy Choos to create a ceremony look reminiscent of movie stars of old.
Turn heads at your reception as you take on 2021’s biggest trends, from the two-piece gown to a crystal-embellished headband. Ultimate Gray’s soft neutral hue allows plenty of room to add sparkle to your silhouette and accessories and flaunt a playful look for the celebratory festivities ahead.
One of 2021’s biggest bridal trends is the mismatched bridal party. Hues of gray, silver, and metallics complement each other and create elegant cohesion—even if your bridesmaids are wearing different dresses. Accessorize your besties with delicate diamonds or subtle silver necklaces to tie your trendy bridal party looks together.
Choosing Ultimate Gray for your groom will create a sleek and polished ceremony look. Both this Tom Ford timepiece and these Gucci loafers shine with smart silver accents, elevating his sophisticated look and complementing your timeless aesthetic.
Whether it’s asymmetrical necklines, ruching, or ruffles, add some fun flair to this neutral shade as you soak up some sun on your honeymoon. Pair some sparkly flats and earrings with slate gray shades and a mask for stunning looks you’ll want to wear long after the wedding is over.
If you’re still deciding on a color palette for your 2021 wedding, the combination of gray and yellow presents a stunning color scheme for your ceremony, reception, and honeymoon—no matter the season. Warm yellow hues are perfect for spring and summer celebrations and softer shades complement the changing leaves as the season transitions to fall. Cooler tones of gray are fit for wintry celebrations but is a dependable shade for any color scheme at any time of the year.
Flaunting both Illuminating and Ultimate Gray allows you the flexibility to mix and match your favorite pieces. Lean into your fairytale fantasies by pairing yellow strappy pumps with this stunning Monique Lluillier gown that Emma Watson’s Belle could have easily donned. Add Jennifer Behr’s delicate Vinessa multi-Swarovski crystal earrings for a refined and regal finishing touch.
Who says Ultimate Gray can’t be bold? Take center stage in this fashion-forward Eva Lendel jumpsuit accessorized with a gold headband and matching clutch that are as bright as your newlywed smile.
If you want to add a little more contrast to your mismatched bridesmaid looks, have your bridesmaids stun in silvery gray gowns and your maid of honor shine in Illuminating yellow. Pair silver and gold accessories accordingly for a metallic-inspired tribute to Pantone’s 2021 colors.
