Incorporate the Colors of the Year into Your Wedding

Featuring Ultimate Gray and Illuminating!


Pantone announced the colors (yes, plural!) of the year for 2021: Ultimate Gray and Illuminating! These colors were chosen based on their warmth and dependability - making either of them a great color to incorporate into your 2021 wedding.


At Cambria Nursery and Florist, our expert team is ready to design showstopping florals for your wedding. Here are our favorite flowers in the shades Ultimate Gray and Illuminating that you can incorporate into your big day: 


  1. Sunflowers: Brighten up your special day with gorgeous sunflowers! Sunflowers have that perfect illuminating color to bring joy and happiness to your wedding. Not only do they make bold statements, but sunflowers also look fantastic any time from summer to fall! Incorporate sunflowers in a cheerful bouquet or as a flower crown.


  1. Yellow Freesias: Freesias are elegant cut flowers with long, graceful stems and a wonderful fragrance. Yellow freesias bring sunshine wherever they go, making them a classy and beautiful addition to your wedding! Pair them with white flowers, like roses, to really make that yellow color shine.


  1. Craspedia: This beautiful flower adds a touch of uniqueness to an arrangement! The cool-shaped ball-like blooms work great as a filler in a bouquet. Craspedia is both chic and bold. Wow your guests by incorporating this flower into your bouquet, boutineers or in the centerpiece! 


  1. Dusty Miller: The lacey leaves of Dusty Millers are well known for their silvery-gray foliage. Make the focal point of your bouquet stand out with these as fillers. The gray is sure to make any color (like yellow!) stand out even more. Dusty Miller is a timeless garden staple that is always in style and so easy to add to any wedding florals - whether it be as a centerpiece, bouquet or decor for the back of chairs. 


  1. Solidagos: This vibrant flower also works great as a filler in an arrangement! Solidagos enhance the color and beauty of the focal flower. We suggest pairing them with sunflowers to really make the gorgeous yellow shine!
