Yes, I maybe a few months late. But I just learned today that Pantone’s color of the year (2010) is the PANTONE® 15-5519 Turquoise, which according to http://www.pantone.com, “transports us to an exciting, tropical paradise while offering a sense of protection and healing in stressful times”
One place that reminds me to the “exciting, tropical paradise” is BALI, Indonesia. Yes, I may be biased because I was born in that country, but a lot has changed since the last time (and only time) I came to the island. Bali is now a world-class venue which hosts events, such as destination weddings, that attract people from all over the world. No wonder it is one of the most romantic places in Southeast Asia. Marcia Selva, the president of Global Spectrum and a specialist in travel to Southeast Asia said this about Bali, “Romance is something that is unexplained and these romantic places leave you wanting more. Southeast Asian culture is dreamy. It is seductive and sexy. (Bali) has that. They have the spiritually and the allure.”
So, if you’re considering the color turquoise for your wedding, I hope it does transport you to an exciting, tropical paradise that you’ve been dreaming of. The color itself is so refreshing, airy and uplifting. Wikipedia defines it as a “rare and valuable in finer grades and has been prized as a gem and ornamental stone for thousands of years owing to its unique hue”. And with that, I wish you: Happy Planning!
