    How to Use Pantone's Colour of the Year 2018 in Your Wedding

    Pantone has just announced its Colour of the Year 2018, and it’s a beautiful vibrant hue of purple, specifically, Ultra Violet. The company described its colour choice as one that communicates ‘originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking’.  The richness and vibrancy of this tone is a departure from 2017’s fresh and organic Greenery.
    While the deep purple as a standalone wedding colour might be a little too bold for some, in combination of softer hues it truly looks stunning. Allow us to suggest a few ways to incorporate it into your wedding day…

    Mauve And Lilac Flowers

    The softness of the mauve and lilacs look gorgeous against the vibrancy of the deeper purple, resulting in a romantic look with a little pop. Hydrangeas come in the most beautiful shades of purples, mauves and lilac and their fluffiness makes them the ideal romantic flower. 

    Combined With Marble

    Both purple and marble are associated with richness and royalty, so this pairing is pretty perfect. The elegance and timelessness of marble is complemented by the vibrancy of a deep purple.

    Soft Purples With A Touch Of Greenery 

    While green is organic and fresh, purple is rich and energising, the contrast between these two make them the perfect match. Soft purples in lavender shades look gorgeous with foliage, especially for spring and summer weddings. 

    Accented With Gold 

    Regal purple and gilded gold is another perfect match. Brighter golds look particularly gorgeous with deeper shades of purple, while softer, pinker shades of purple look lovely with vintage golds.
