Rose Quartz and Serenity - how should we think of this new color duo? Pantone insists it's not baby pink and baby blue! Far from it. It's actually meant to convey rosy warmth and tranquility. With the craziness of planning a wedding, these two colors might be the perfect colors to focus on!

Choosing a color duo is a first for the company but, hey, why not? It actually opens up more possibilities when choosing to use the 2016 Color of the Year in your wedding. A pastel does not appear often in the Color of the Year lineup and is only the third time a pastel been chosen since 2000. Most are fairly bold. Think of Chili Pepper in 2007 (love Chili Pepper!) Blue Iris in 2008, Tangerine Tango in 2012, and Radiant Orchid in 2014.
