2018 Pantone Colour of the Year: Ultra Violet - 18-3838
By: Niagara Wedding Helper | January 2018
Each year, leading colour forcaster, Pantone Colour Institute, predicts the trending colour of the year. This year they announced this colour to be Ultra Violet - 18-3838. Many people within the wedding industry, especially Decorators, Wedding Planners, and Florists look forward to this announcement, as this tends to be the trending colour choice in weddings for that year.
Although I loved last year's Pantone colour "greenery", I am really excited for this year's colour. This bold, Ultra Violet purple is going to bring a vibrant contrast to the soft pastels we seen in 2017. I am especially excited as purple is my favourite colour and I cannot wait to see how people choose to incorporate this amazing colour into their weddings.
For those of you that would like to incorporate Ultra Violet into your 2018 wedding, but are not sure how you would like to do this, I have provided some inspirational ideas below:
One of my favourite ways to incorporate the Pantone colour of the year into a wedding is with the Bouquet. When it comes to your bouquet, you have so many different options, from one solid colour to pops of Ultra Violet mixed in with other colours. Also, you have a large selection of flowers that come in purple to choose from. (Make sure you check out the Florists category in the Niagara Wedding Helper Directory!)
Table Linens and napkins are one of the most effective ways to add the 2018 Pantone Colour of the Year to your wedding reception. There are also many types of fabrics you can choose from.

The wedding decor is a great way to add pops of Ultra Violet throughout your wedding. From little hanging baskets at your wedding ceremony to floral/lantern centerpieces at your wedding reception...the options are pretty much endless. (Need help with the decor for your wedding?

Filling your reception area with Ultra Violet up-lighting can really set the mood. Up-lighting is often forgotten about, however, it can make a dramatic difference in the overall appearance of your wedding venue. Certain DJ/Entertainment services provide the option of up-lighting, so make sure you ask them if this is something you are interested in. (If you would like up-lighting for your wedding, talk to the DJ/Entertainment Services listed in the DJ Services category in the Niagara Wedding Helper Directory!)
Adding Ultra Violet accessories to you and your wedding party's outfits is a fun way to add the 2018 Pantone Colour of the year to your wedding. Accessories can range from jewelry, ties, sunglasses, hair pieces or even your shoes!
Choosing a dessert in the 2018 Pantone Colour of the year is a unique and yummy way to add Ultra Violet to your wedding. Adding purple elements to your wedding cake is the easiest way to add this colour. If you want to get creative, you can add items such as blueberry tart, macaroons, or even creme brulee or custards. Talk to the Bakery/Pastry Chefs or the Catering Services listed in the Niagara Wedding Helper Directory about how you can incorporate Ultra Violet into your dessert!)
The Signature Drink…
Creating a Signature Drink for your wedding is a fun way to represent you and your partner. Creating an Ultra Violet Signature Drink can add an extra element of uniqueness to your wedding. Signature Drinks can be both alcoholic or non-alcoholic, and can range from cocktails to smoothies and anywhere in between.
