Every the closing of every year, the Pantone Color Institute releases a new color for Pantone that is to represent the new year ahead. We are proud to present to you the Pantone Color of the Year 2018 – Ultra Violet! Named for a wavelength that’s actually invisible to the naked eye, this shade sparks imagination and creativity. Though purple is traditionally a color used to designate royalty, the experts at Pantone noted that their inspiration for this purple comes from the uniqueness and individuality of people. The foreseen trend for 2018 is a combination of emotional expression and complex nuance through the veil of future opportunity and optimism. We love this nod to a more inventive, sci-fi element that dares our society to reach higher, farther, and faster.
With its bold look, Ultra Violet is a great statement to build your wedding palette around. Florals can include orchids in this great shade accompanied by pink roses. We adore the look of a brushed artichoke in purple or place settings marked with this vibrant color. Chair sashes and table runners in Ultra Violet against a white tablecloth will make for a bold look while still being very in-style. The great news about purple is that is compliments a variety of colors and metallics. So whether your palette includes warmer shades such as gold or cooler tones like silver, this futuristic purple is sure to blend perfectly. As an extra detail, backlighting in purple gives your wedding an upscale and infinite feel. For your Arizona wedding, try out Pantone Color of the Year 2018, Ultra Violet, for a look that boldly goes where no other has gone before!
