Colour themes are a very important part of wedding planning and deciding on a theme early on will help you make countless other decisions later down the line.
But what colour to choose? It’s a minefield out there and you don’t want to get it wrong – and you also want to make sure your wedding is on trend and not likely to be outshone by other ceremonies going on.
Which is why you might want to consider using Ultra Violet in your preparations somewhere, as Pantone has just announced this as the colour of the year for 2018.
As executive director of the Pantone Color Institute Leatrice Eiseman says: “We are living in a time that requires inventiveness and imagination. It is this kind of creative inspiration that is indigenous to Pantone 18-3838 Ultra Violet, a blue-based purple that takes our awareness and potential to a higher level. From exploring new technologies and the greater galaxy, to artistic expression and spiritual reflection, intuitive Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come.”
So how can you bring this wonderful colour into your wedding this year? A very quick and easy way of doing so is looking out for UK wedding chair sashes for your reception room. Or you could consider working the shade into your flowers with ease. Imagine buttonholes in this bright and vibrant shade – what a way to make an impact!
Other ideas include using it on your invitations with beautiful gold cursive script, your bridesmaids’ dresses, or even just using purple lighting to bring a real wow factor to proceedings.
