Pantone just announced Ultra Violet as its colour of the year for 2018–and we’re totally on board with this choice. According to the Pantone Color Institute, this shade of purple that’s on the bluer side of the spectrum “suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now.”
This eclectic shade is bolder than the light, soft lavenders brides have been favouring in recent years, which makes it a fresh choice for wedding colour palettes. The shade also symbolizes “expression and non-conformity” and has been associated with musicians who perfectly embody that statement such as Prince, Jimi Hendrix and David Bowie.
We have a few suggestions on how you can incorporate this trendy hue into your wedding. From cakes to stationery and centrepieces, you’ll want to inject the shade into every aspect of your big day.
