Well, stay tuned because I'm putting together my current list for Spring. Oh, and because I'm sure the suspense is killing you... today I'd like to announce my top overall pick for weddings in 2012!

Details We Love
Clutches + Bridesmaid Dress

Fig is such a fabulous color, so it's no wonder why it made it's way to the #1 spot on my list for 2012 weddings! I simply love how vibrant it is and furthermore I think it's a color you can use year round for weddings. It pairs effortlessly with shades of gray, but I can also see this color pairing nicely with shades like navy blue or even a neutral like camel. Fig is a fun color that also has a sort of unmatched elegance and personally I think it has the ''it'' factor. So tell me what you think? Are you liking The Perfect Palette's Color of the Year?

Love your color pick!!!! And, it looks so great with grey. I'm also always a bit partial to any shade of purple myself so I love this inspiration board. Especially that bouquet :)

Dreamy colors. I really like those clutches. Chevron is so hot right now.

Fig is a great description for this color. I'll keep it in mind since I just bought some fabric for my shop in this color, but I was going to wait until Fall, maybe you're right, it's a year rounder.

Who does not tamper with the stems, but would want to keep the heart shape, which can also bake the pie pops peduncle and then pack them in a small gift bag.
