Gorgeous South Asian Bridal Styles Inspired by Pantone's Spring 2016 Trend Report

Oh, we're really in the thick of wedding season aren't we? Well, maybe here in the Pacific Northwest it's just getting started. Seattle weather was been either perfect or perfectly gloomy these past few weeks but we're pretty much used to that. And inconsistent weather can wreak havoc on wedding plans, most couples end up booking their outdoor events for later in the summer or even into fall.

Considering that, I don't feel too out of sorts writing a bit more about the colors Pantone picked for their Spring/Summer trend report for 2016. Overall, I think these colors are pretty, airy, feminine, and perfectly in line with popular wedding trends this year. To show just how these colors can be used in a Happy Shaadi wedding, I've pulled together some of my favorite South Asian bridal styles for your browsing pleasure. Hopefully one of these looks inspires your own wedding plans :)

Rose Quartz was selected as the color of the year for 2016, along with the more subdued blue, Serenity. I much prefer the pink to the blue in terms of bridal style particularly when it looks so lovely when paired with cream and gold. It makes a perfectly pretty color for a feminine bridal style. 

Fiesta is a feisty, pinkish red that is in line with the more traditional bridal colors for a South Asian wedding. I love the simplicity of this lehenga (not too heavy for summer) and the gold offsets the red just enough to add visual interest.

Green Flash is not necessarily something I'd recommend for ceremony attire, but how gorgeous would this saree be for a mehendi or sangeet? Again, the pattern is simple and light enough to be comfortable even on the hottest summer evenings. And the green is a vibrant and exciting choice of color.

The soft teal of Limpet Shell is again not necessarily on point for a wedding ceremony, but I love the thought of matching bridesmaids in this color. The look of antique gold paired with the soft teal is sophisticated and feminine without being overly girly. 

I love Peach Echo as another shade that would be perfect for a more trendy bridal look. Pastels are big this year, and this gorgeous shade of salmon is vibrant enough to make a bride stand out in even the most colorfully dressed crowd. Also a great choice for your reception attire.  

Buttercup is a quintessential spring color, calling back to its floral namesake. This saree pairs the floral design trend with the soft yellow perfectly. It's easy to go overboard with patterns like this, but I think this particular design balances the simplicity with the embroidery work just enough.
