5 Ways to Use Ultra Violet

We all know that Pantone sets the tone for the upcoming color schemes, and sometimes I love them and other times I don’t. I am so excited that the Pantone 2018 Color of the Year is a hue of purple. Ultra Violet to be exact. I was hoping that lavender, plum and amethyst would come back in a big way. Yay! We’ve featured these hues on the blog before, so be sure to take a peek at 5 ways to use Ultra Violet – even if it isn’t your favorite color.

5 Ways to Use Ultra Violet in your Wedding as seen on Hill City Bride Virginia Blog

Here are creative ways to use Ultra Violet in 2018! Ideas flow clockwise from top right.

  • Not a fan of Pantone’s choice for 2018 Color of the Year? Well, why not choose to incorporate it in a subtle way? The rim of a single plate is in a purple hue, which adds in the trend without creating an overpowering situation. See more of this Virginia styled wedding here.  Photo: Shelby Dickinson Photography
  • Why not commemorate 2018 in a unique way by having a purple gemstone engagement ring? I love this ring, and the fact that it’s in rose gold is even better. Such a great choice! See this full engagement session herePhoto: Ryann Winn Photography
  • Love the color but maybe not in a bright way? Take mismatched bridesmaids dresses to a new level by incorporating varying shades of purple. So pretty! Take a peek at more of the hues in this wedding by Demi Mabry Photography here.
  • Your cake is a lovely way to add in plum or any shade you adore! These ribbons add a bit of panache to a white cake to allow it to have its own scheme. See this full wedding here. Photo: Melissa Batman Photography
  • Of course, your wedding flowers are a fabulous way to incorporate Ultra Violet and other purples such as plum and lavender. How beautiful! This wedding appears here on our blog. Photo: Clara Ann Photography

Aren’t those fun ideas? I can’t wait to see what other things 2018 brings besides a fun color.
