Even if we all love a wedding with the classic neutral tones, never underestimate the power of colours. If used in the right way the touch of colour can add a note of freshness and joy and can help us to define the fil rouge of the event.

If you are tired of the usual colours combinations and want to get out of the box then the Pantone colour 2018 is the one for you. This is the PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet, “a dramatically provocative and reflective purple tone that communicates originality, ingenuity and visionary thinking, showing us the way to the future,” as the company describes it on its website.

And organizing your wedding is a bit like starting to plan your future, so it seems decidedly appropriate to include the Pantone 2018 colour, Ultra Violet in your wedding plans.

This does not mean that everything in your marriage should suddenly become violet. Being in fact a strong colour, my advice is to use it in small doses; the details are the ones that do the difference. You can also think of blending it with nuances in degrade ‘or combining it with the mud colour, which in my opinion gives life to a very refined combination.

However, let’s see in detail how you can place the Ultra Violet in your wedding for an original touch.

THE INVITATIONS

Let’s start with the participations, to give to the guests a preview of your ceremony. Do not deliver completely purple invitations, here as well only a few details are enough. In fact, a splash of lavender and a bow of the same colour to wrap the invitation can make the difference. Another alternative is to handwrite the invitation with purple ink to give it an air to say the least regal.

THE FLOWERS

The violet allows you to play a lot with floral decorations. In fact, nature has not been stingy in giving flowers of this colour; there is a purple flower for every season. Among these, I recommend:

Hydrangeas

• Violets

•Lavender

• Tulips

The hydrangeas in particular could be perfect for your wedding, as they can be found in different colours making your bouquet varied and not completely purple.

The ULTRA VIOLET FOR THE BRIDESMAIDS

If you have decided to follow the American fashion to make your best friends an integral part of the ceremony by setting them up as bridesmaids, you must give them different dresses that cover all shades of purple, from delicate lilac to ultra violet. Overall it will be a real feast for the eyes.

DRINK TRENDY IN VIOLET

You can also give a trendy touch to the drinks. There’s nothing easier than asking for cocktails that recall the pantone colour of the year. Moreover, if you sprinkle the rim of the glass with some brown sugar and serve them on a gold-coloured tray, your friends cannot help wondering if by mistake they have ended up at the wedding ceremony of Prince Harry with his Meghan

PANTONE FOR DESSERTS AND NUNZIALE CAKE

Nothing look more gorgeous than desserts in in various shades of purple, then green light to macarons, sugared almonds and cakes with shiny glazes.

For the wedding cake, I recommend a refined naked cake with a berry topper or one decorated with edible purple flowers.
