Acai, one of Pantone’s autumn 2013 colours, is a deep, dark purple. It’s the colour that I chose for my own beautiful bridesmaids, because it’s a shade that suits almost everyone, works well for both daytime through to evening and because it’s vibrant without being too bright.
This rich jewel tone works well for autumn and winter weddings and holds its own with bright statement colours such as yellow and orange, as well as being complemented by softer neutrals.
