The Pantone Institute describes Veri Peri as “Displaying a carefree confidence and a daring curiosity that animates our creative spirit, inquisitive and intriguing. Very Peri helps us to embrace this altered landscape of possibilities, opening us up to a new vision as we rewrite our lives. Rekindling gratitude for some of the qualities that blue represents complemented by a new perspective that resonates today.”

On the other hand, if you want to make a statement with your wedding colors, mixing it with jewel and gold tones will provide a sophisticated look perfect for a black-tie affair.
