Wedding Inspiration from Pantone’s Color of the Year: Ultra Violet

By Alyssa DiCicco of Nashville Bride Guide

Every year, Pantone announces their color of the year… and this year, it’s Ultra Violet! The color choice dictates what we’ll be seeing trend-wise for the coming year and has a huge influence on wedding design! This year at The Big Fake Wedding Nashville, the gorgeous deep color scheme includes Amethyst and Iris – two hues of Ultra Violet. I’m so excited to see how each designer utilizes the colors in their decor designs! You can grab your tickets to the Nashville event here and keep reading to see some ways you can incorporate Ultra Violet into your wedding!

Wedding Tablescape

Your tablescapes are always a great way to add in your accent color at your wedding. And the Ultra Violet trend is no different this year! Splash some deep purple colored napkins against ivory linen or even add purple to your wedding favors on your tables. The trick is to do it sparingly!

Adding color to your wedding attire is becoming one of the hottest trends in 2018. Opting for a lavender dress (like the satin one below by Elle Nelle Bridal) is a-okay in my book! Plus, it’s so elegant, it will take your wedding to new heights. And if you’re still all about wearing white (or more than likely, ivory), then dressing your ‘maids in a pretty plum color or lavender is definitely a great choice! Ultra Violet pocket square for the men? Sure, why not!



Okay, so maybe dark purple icing isn’t the best option for your cake (your guests might leave with purple lips!), but adding in Ultra Violet details onto your cake is a GREAT idea! Florals are a great way to do this since so many beautiful flowers come in the color purple.

Ceremony Decor

Adding pops of Ultra Violet to your ceremony arch or even welcome wreaths is a great idea! Mix in some greenery and voila, your ceremony is sure to wow your guests!

Wedding Favors and Details

Photographers love playing around with objects to shoot wedding details like your rings and accessories. Decorating with some Ultra Violet geodes for a boho/modern look is so refreshing! Wedding favors are also a great way to bring in color like these cute koozies from a wedding at The Loveless Barn!


Florals, Florals, Florals!

My favorite way to bring in Ultra Violet to your wedding is through florals! Make your bouquets pop and your centerpieces get noticed with this color trend! Mix it with white and pops of purple or go all out with the purple trend and give it dimension with some different shades of flowers.
