Be bold and host a beautiful wedding reception with ultraviolet accents that will separate your special day from the status quo. Don’t think Pantone is suggesting you use just any purple to beautify your wedding – they are putting forth the ultimate purple, Ultra Violet, as 2018’s Colour of the Year.
Pantone’s description of this unique colour is certainly a mouthful, but this blue-based purple that has “cosmic undertones” is heralded as evoking imagination and ingenuity that is well-suited to a forward-looking bride.
Ultra Violet Floral Arrangements
It doesn’t take a floral expert to see that Mother Nature is a talented artist, and there are a wide variety of gorgeous flowers a bride looking to incorporate Ultra Violet can pull from. Larkspur, carnations, alstroemeria, dendrobiums and mokaras naturally present in this daring hue, and they can be incorporated into the bridal party’s bouquets with ease. However, if you have favourite flowers that may not be naturally a shade of Ultra Violet, a professional florist can help you dye your choice flowers to best fit the theme.
Ultra Violet petals will make any bouquet, boutonniere or centrepiece an absolute standout at your wedding. Purple’s stark contrast with greenery makes the incorporation of Pantone’s 2018 Colour a truly spectacular option for flowers that earn the spot as the talking point of your special day.
Ultra Violet Details
If you want to incorporate this lively colour in more subtle ways, consider using ribbon accents to wrap your bouquets or elevate your centrepieces. Or, string Ultra Violet details throughout a floral crown that will photograph beautifully and really make you stand out as a fashion-forward bride.
Before the big day even arrives, you can give a nod to Ultra Violet with your invitations. Go bold with purple invites that feature gold lettering. Otherwise, use dashes of the hue inside your envelopes or to detail your save-the-dates.
Ultra Violet Wedding Fashions
Can you imagine how much your white, cream or pastel bridal gown would stand out amidst deep purple-hued bridesmaid dresses? Short or long gowns of this shade surrounding you in the aisle and in your treasured photographs will make you the elegant centrepiece in a sea of dark, rich satin, silk or organza.
If you’re looking for another, but subtle way to bring Ultra Violet to the party, a perfect pair of shoes your guests can glimpse as you walk down the aisle or dance the night away will be the pop of colour that keeps all eyes on you.
