Why Marsala for the upcoming year? According to Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director at the Pantone Color Institute, “Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability. Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth.” Marsala is a rich color that holds red-brown tones to provide it an earthy sense.
Marsala is a wonderful choice for weddings. It’s an earthy color that provides a sense of sophistication to any look. Marsala would be a perfect choice for a bride who has a diverse bridal party because it complements many diverse skin tones and would wash out the bridal party in pictures. Because let’s be honest, the cut of the dress isn’t the only thing that’s important when trying on a bridesmaids’ dress.
Pantone chose Radiant Orchid as the 2014 Color of the Year.
