Pantone 2018 Colour of The Year: Five ways to rock an ultra violet wedding

Ultra Violet Wedding Colour Scheme

Since Pantone’s 2018 Colour of the Year has been announced, an ultra violet wedding colour scheme has become the hottest trend this year. There’s no better colour to incorporate into your wedding. Hues of purple, lilac and violet add a modern touch to any colour scheme.

Said to symbolise experimentation, boldness and non-conformity, Ultra Violet is perfect for those quirky and unique couples looking to create a wedding that thinks outside the box. It’s deep and mystical hue will certainly catch eyes! We’ve put together a few of our favourite ideas to incorporate this colour into your wedding to help inspire you:



The dark tones of violet flowers perfectly complement winter greens and rich pinks for a bold bouquet. Mostly neutral hues paired with a few ultra violet stems can give a bright touch of colour to a lighter floral arrangement.

Groomsmen Details


Let your groom and groomsmen rock the ultra violet trend with their outfit details. Small touches such as a bold tie or purple flowers pinned on a lapel can add a colourful accent to a basic suit.

Bridesmaids Dresses

An all ultra violet squad might be a little too much for some brides. Those not dead-set on their ‘maids all wearing the same dress, can dress them in different hues of purple for a subtler way to incorporate the trend.

Wedding Invitations

Pairing violet paper with gold lettering can give a luxurious feel to your wedding invitations. For something a little simpler, we love the vintage effect purple ink has on white or cream paper.



An ultra violet wedding cake might not be your first instinct, but it can be a great way to factor your food into your colour scheme. Instead of all-out purple icing, try a naked tiered cake with simple violet flower details – a beautifully rustic effect.
