The time has come—Pantone has announced the Color of the Year for 2018! And while broadly this is seen as a trend dictator or predictor for fashion and interiors for the upcoming year, we of course are always thinking about how the color of the year is applicable to wedding trends and decor. And for 2018 the color isssss (drumroll please) Ultra Violet purple!
Vibrant and bold, Pantone says this about the color: "Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets." So if you want to get in on the Ultra Violet trend for your wedding, we think including this color in your palette is ideal for the bride who is a little quirky and out-of-the-box. She who wants to try something new, or has a particularly creative side to her. But fear not! You don't have to be a boundary-pushing bride to incorporate this happy hue into your wedding! Here's a round up of some of our favorite ways we've already seen it done, to inspire you for the upcoming year.
No need to have an all-Ultra Violet cake! Tone it down by adding a couple of of purple flowers to an otherwise simple and innocuous cake—a little pop without going too over-the-top. Remember, purple in general is a pretty stand-out color, so when in doubt, having a light touch is the right move.
