Move over greenery! The 2018 Pantone color of the year is here and it's Ultra Violet!!


Pantone describes the hue as a "provocative and thoughtful purple shade", that "communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking".

All we can think is how happy wedding vendors must be about this year's color!! Purple looks good on almost everyone, and there are tons of flowers that naturally fall in the Ultra Violet family!

Is purple one of your wedding colors? Will you be slipping some Ultra Violet into your decor??

    Yeah I just found them!!! I went to Ferr茅 Sposa on Bloor and Ossington (if you live in Toronto). They has so many different styles and different shades that you can almost do anything you want. Also the dresses are pretty reasonable prices.
    Hope that helps Smiley smile

    I won鈥檛 be using purple, I am part First Nations and I am planning to incorporate our colours into my wedding. I have chosen red as my bridesmaids colour to honour the missing and murdered indigenous women. I will also be having one of my family鈥檚 designs put on my dress. In our culture red represents life and black represents the spirit. I鈥檒l also be rocking my mocks or well mukluks my mom made for me for the ceremony and photos.

    I'm doing a Harry Potter wedding so My fianc茅 and I are the only ones wearing purple. I still love the vest and tie combo. I wasn't sure if he should wear both in purple.
