Pantone Color of the Year: Ultraviolet

Pantone's 2018 color of the year is perfect for any season. Ultraviolet, which is a rich shade of purple, will give your wedding a gorgeous pop of color. Pair it with a metallic or neutral color for spring and summer weddings, or make a deep color combo with another rich shade, like navy, for fall and winter weddings. If this deep purple is too much, you can take inspiration from some sister shades. 

Incorporating blooms into your wedding cake is a simple way to tie in the colors in the rest of your wedding decor. This rustic layered cake is a great example for a spring or summer wedding.


Let your bridesmaids shine in beautiful purple hues. Choose the same color for everyone, have your maid of honor stand out in a darker shade, or allow all of your girls to select a dress in the same color family.

Add a touch of this standout color to your bouquet with different blooms. To give it a bit more glamour in your wedding pictures, pair it with a gold necklace like our Sophia Pendant Necklace.

A watercolor stationary is also a great way to incorporate purple hues to your big day. Whether the touch of purple is in the calligraphy or on the envelopes, it will give your guest a feel of what's to come on your wedding day. 

Show off your love for this color with a gorgeous tablescape at your wedding reception. Flowers, china, candles, or napkins, are all great ways to add a touch of ultraviolet.

If you're feeling adventurous, pick a soft lilac colored wedding dress. You can wear it for the ceremony and the reception, or wear it as your "party dress" at the reception.

To complete your bridal look, add a beautiful back pendant like our Dakota Y Lariat Backdrop Necklace to your low back bridal gown.
