Trending Wedding Motifs Of The Year And How To Use Them
Lovebug, colors and motifs are very important in a wedding. It can represent a personality and direct a mood. Industry giant, Pantone, announced that the two colors for the year are “Ultimate Grey” and “Illuminating Yellow”. Grey symbolizes a “stable foundation” while yellow symbolizes that much-needed “positivity”.
