Get ready lovelies, purple is going to “reign” this coming wedding season. Recently announced, Ultra Violet Pantone Color of the Year for 2018, is a bright rich hue that blends effortlessly with a multitude of colors working as the main shade or as an accent. Case in point? Madison Sanders Events and Melissa & Beth’s gorgeous water color mashup utilizing Ultra Violet as an accent color. They illustrate just how seamlessly this hue pairs with soft blues and pinks for an uber romantic modern vibe. From Blue Bouquet’s fresh floral to the blank canvas The Gallery Event Space offers, this gem is a wonderful roadmap to the whimsical charm this color is going offer brides this coming wedding season. Course, for us, add in an ethereal Hayley Paige gown with frothy layers of multicolored tulle and a shimmering sequined floral bodice and we immediately swoon.
Ultra Violet Pantone Color of the Year
The Ultra Violet Pantone Color of the Year has a bit of buzz about it already as the internet is trending with news that the rich purple hue pays homage to Prince. We can get behind that theory. While Pantone noted that Ultra Violet evokes “the mysteries of the cosmos,” spirituality and creativity in connection with the deep purple shade, they did name-check the Purple One, along with David Bowie and Jimi Hendrix. Pantone exclaims that the shade communicates originality, ingenuity and visionary thinking that points to the future. Okay, honestly. How perfect is that when you translate those expressions to your wedding day!? On that note, we couldn’t wait to see how industry professionals would interrupt this into their own vision. Thank goodness, we didn’t wait because once you see the “garden in the sky” installation this team pulled off – your head will spin. Move over Greenery, the wedding world has new super star that has us color crushing.
