Pantone Color 2018 // Ultra violet

It's official, the Pantone Color of the Year for 2018 is ultra violet!  It's almost like they dedicated this year's color to Prince {lucky for us Minnesotans}!  Look for this color to pop everywhere from fashion, to home decor to weddings.  You might not realize it yet, but there tons of gorgeous color combinations you can do with this bold and vibrant color!  From little details to a full violet palette, you'll soon be obsessed with this color.

Wedding palettes have slowly been transitioning to deeper hues and we are ready to embrace color full on!  One of our favorite 2018 Pantone inspired palettes is a combination of blue gray, fuchsia, and yes, you guessed it, ULTRA VIOLET!  If you're looking for a monochromatic color scheme, match the Pantone color with deep, rich berry hues.  For the bolder bride who wants to flaunt their creative side, add some yellow and orange to the look.  Even a neutral color palette can use some love from this pretty hue!  Place cards, drinks, invitation suites and cakes are all perfect ways to include an ultra violet accent into your special day.

To inspire you, we have four of our favorite Pantone color combinations below {8 colors in each} featuring ultra violet as well as some of our favorite ways violet has been incorporated into weddings!
