So, they’ve only gone and done it – Pantone have announced their fave shade for 2018 and it’s Pantone Ultra Violet. But hold it right there, this isn’t an 80s throwback shade. It doesn’t glow in the dark and it’s not too bright for weddings. Oh now, Pantone Ultra Violet is a pretty delicious hue and it’s downright perfect for weddings. We’ve rounded up all the inspo you need and it’s right here, right now. Let’s get ready for 2018…

Pantone Ultra Violet Colour

PANTONE ULTRA VIOLET FOR 2018

We think it’s time to get on board with this colour. It’s going to be everywhere this year and you can be sure that already, plenty of people are planning how to use it. You’ll see it on the high street and you’ll see it featuring on a whole load of products. But we’re not here to talk about that. Oh now, we’re all about weddings so here goes…

Pantone Ultra Violet Wedding

OK, how gorgeous are those tablescapes? Romantic, rich and luxurious in the extreme AND Pantone Ultra Violet works with so many of our favourite things. Golden accents – tick. Fab fabrics – tick. Succulents and lush florals – tick tick tick. Your guests will beat a path to their seats when your tables look this good. And that, dear reader, is all you need.

Pantone Ultra Violet Wedding Flowers

Err, hello, check out these florals. We’re always going to fall for trailing, Dutch Master style arrangements and how gorgeous do they look with purple blooms? We are positively swooning. Loose, unstructured, rambling bouquets are still going to be BIG news this year and those with purple tinges will be totally on trend. If you’re all about the colour coordination, look for a venue that’s working the wisteria. How amazing would this be as a backdrop for your photos? Yep, you’re totally coming around to the idea of Pantone Ultra Violet as a wedding theme now aren’t you?

THE PANTONE ULTRA VIOLET BRIDE

Pantone Ultra Violet Bride

Now let’s get down to business. It’s time to talk about your bridal look. Does Pantone Ultra Violet work for brides? Hell yes it does. Coloured gowns definitely feature in this year’s collections and we’re crushing on each and every one of them. Perfect for a non-traditional bride, a coloured wedding dress is pure heaven but you don’t have to go bold. A soft hint of purple would do it if you prefer. Then, include the deeper tone with your accessories – think jewels, shoes, florals and more…

Pantone Ultra Violet Makeup

And ‘more’ should certainly include your makeup. If you take a look around the beauty counters, you’ll see that Pantone Ultra Violet has already made an appearance. Whether you opt for a mani or pedi, the shade you select is all important. If you’re not keen on going bright on your wedding day, this would be a fab shade for honeymoon shenanigans. Just saying…

On the flip side, should you wish to really embrace this hot tone, we say go bold. Statement eyes or, for real wow factor, a purple/gold lip could be the thing to try. Go on, you know you want to…

Pantone Ultra Violet – it’s a tale of the unexpectedly beautiful. And you just know that you’re going to love this tone all year long.
