Wedding Pantone Colour of the Year 2018

Pinterest boards at the ready! The Pantone colour of the year has been announced and it works wonderfully for wedding decor. The colour is UltraViolet, well to be precise it’s 18-3838.




“The Pantone Color of the Year has come to mean so much more than ‘what’s trending’ in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today.” – Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute\


So, what does this mean for brides? Well, it means you can have a whole lot of fun, that’s what! Whether you are a bold, bright and beautiful bride or a more introvert, simple bride, you can really work with this shade of purple and bring it into your wedding style in a whole new and unique way. Since it’s a perfect wedding colour, expect to see pops of the cosmic-inspired shade at weddings this year, whether it’s a striking floral addition to bouquets or standout bridesmaid dresses. Pair it with a metallic or neutral for spring and summer weddings, or make a deep colour combo with another rich shade, like navy, for autumn and winter weddings. We also love pairing Ultra Violet with a lighter purple, like lavender, for weddings year-round. While neutral palettes and fresh, earthy hues may always be in style (the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year was Greenery), we’re looking forward to seeing the eye-catching Ultra Violet colour take centre stage in 2018.

We have picked just a few inspirational ideas for you for an ‘UltraViolet’ wedding styling. Check out our Pinterest board for more!
