If you’re planning your 2022 wedding, and looking for the perfect shade to bring your big day together – we’ve got you covered! Whether you’re looking for the perfect color for accents that are soft and sweet, or a signature color that’s bold and daring – this stunning hue can do it all. 

Pantone’s 2022 Color of the Year is very daring, very courageous, very dynamic…and Very Peri! 

This beautiful periwinkle shade, invented for the Color of the Year for the first time ever, is spritely and joyous, perfect for a wedding in any season. Why do we love Veri Peri? This one-of-a-kind tone was meant to embody confidence and creativity – and your wedding day is the perfect time to showcase your creativity, while feeling strong and confident as you step into your new future with your spouse.  

Pantone says that this unique color is “rekindling gratitude for some of the qualities that blue represents, complemented by a new perspective that resonates today.” Could Very Peri be a modern-day bride’s “something blue”? We think so! To help you incorporate this gorgeous hue into your big day, check out our suggestions below – just think of these tips as your “something borrowed”!


A touch of Very Peri in your floral arrangements is a wonderful addition to any bouquet. You can include a large amount of greenery to help the flowers stand out, or you can go all out and have a bright, bold floral bouquet. Spring or summer brides can opt for flowers like periwinkle or larkspur, while fall and winter brides should look for blooms of pincushions or sweet pea.


Weddings are all about celebrating love, so naturally, you want your wedding décor to mirror all that – but how do you add a pop of Very Peri into your décor to make sure it looks lively and stylish at the same time? 

  • Ceremony Arch: A lush ceremony arch of greenery and pops of periwinkle florals is just right for a wedding anytime of year! 
  • Table linens: If your wedding reception will include tables for a sit-down meal, consider using colorful table linens. If periwinkle table linens are a bit too much for your overall look accent your decor with colorful linen napkins instead.
  • Your signature drink: Cocktails are a work of art on their own, but adding color centered around your color palette not only makes them stand out, but can be a fun and unexpected way to add color to your wedding reception and cocktail hour. Try liquors such as Creme de Violette or lavender simple syrup for a beautiful periwinkle drink sure to please.

The Cake

A white wedding cake never goes out of style. But what if you want your cake to be a bit more colorful and playful? Well, thankfully, there are a lot of ways to achieve that – for example, you could opt for an ombre or solid color cake in Very Peri and top it off with fresh blooms in a color that compliments your cake color. A periwinkle ribbon, or fondant wrapping are more creative ways to add a splash of Very Peri to your dessert centerpiece.

Wedding Party Attire

Let your wedding party help you bring some Very Peri to your special day! Purple ties or boutineers with periwinkle flowers make for the perfect accessories on your groomsmen, and your bridesmaids will be lovely in periwinkle dresses. If you prefer accents to all-over color, consider earrings, headpieces, or shoes in Very Peri for your bridesmaids instead.  And don’t forget about the littlest wedding party members! Give your ring bearer a periwinkle pillow, and purple flowers for your flower girls to sprinkle down the aisle.
