If you're the kind of bride who wants to incorporate the most of-the-moment trends into her wedding, then say hello to the 2018 Pantone Color of the Year—Ultra Violet! Especially perfect for couples who want to venture outside the box, this bright hue ain't your typical wedding color, which makes it all the more cool and original. In fact, Pantone describes this "blue-based purple" tint as a symbol of "experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets." Seems like quite the innovative wedding color palette if we ever saw one.
You don't have to go all purple everything to successfully pull off this year's top color trend. In fact, with a hue this bold, the simpler the better, meaning you can mainly rely on specific minimal accents that still pack a statement-worthy punch. Finding Ultra Violet pieces that scream classy, not tacky, may feel like hunting for an amethyst in a haystack, but we come bearing plenty of purple inspo. From a cake stand to place settings to florals, we rounded up nine pieces of wedding decor in the Pantone Color of the Year destined to lighten and brighten your wedding venue. Each piece demands attention without being too overbearing, so you'll effortlessly nail the Ultra Violet trend just in time for your nuptials.
