The Pantone Colour of the Year 2018 has been announced and it is without doubt that the rich, vivid and mystical qualities of Ultra Violet will begin to infiltrate the colour schemes of impending weddings across the world. 

The experts at Pantone comment on the Colour of the Year: "A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future. Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own."

Purple has always been a popular wedding colour choice, but Pantone's influential stamp marks a new wave of movement and sets a trend for a more modern take on the colour. Demure and dazzling, Ultra Violet presents a bold choice that bridges the gap between masculinity and femininity. From the buttonholes to the bridal bouquet, all elements can confidently make use of the colour. Atmospheric lighting achieved with purple up-lighters can also add a touch of magic to proceedings; discuss this with your venue to secure the perfect mood. 

What's more, within the complementing palette of Ultra Violet we see enticing tones of plum, aubergine, magenta and amethyst - showcasing how you don't have to be restricted to one shade. Even lighter tones of lilac and lavender, venturing further into pastel pinks, can offset an otherwise deep and dark scheme that lacks vibrancy and dimension. Select two or three variations of purple to work in harmony with Ultra Violet for optimum impact. 

If you are yet to settle on a wedding colour scheme and are open to options, take a look at these ideas with which to realise the potential of Ultra Violet. Remember, you don't have to go all out to pay homage to the colour, pops of purple can be just as effective.
