2018 Color of the Year – How to Tie in this Daring/Exciting/Adventurous Color into Your Special Day!
Colors are such an impactful part of your wedding day – they help create the mood and ambiance of your day. Now, some of you may have been dreaming of the ‘biggest day of your life’ since you were little and know the exact colors you’re planning to use. Others of you may be a little curious about new trends and want to explore what’s considered to be ‘THE color’ of the year. There's no right or wrong way to planning your wedding but today we're talking all about the color trend of the year!
Pantone announced late last year that the color of the year is Ultra Violet Purple! It’s vibrant and dramatic, and we are loving it. Whether you’ve envisioned this bold color or not, we’re here to guide you through a few ways you can rock this exciting trend on your special day.
We like to think that A Southern Soiree is psychic and knew this announcement was coming when they designed this stunning styled shoot with Blueberry Creative a few years ago!
As the first item your wedding guests receive regarding your wedding day, why not let your personality shine? Bring together each aspect of your invitation, from save-the-dates to RSVP cards, with hints of color. Whether it’s the color of the text, the adventurous choice of paper or the velvet ribbon wrapping them all together, this can be a true reflection of what guests can expect on your big day.
We’ve got a few tricks up our sleeve on how you can bring in a little, or a lot, of pop of this new color trend into your wedding day florals. Classic routes include adding hints into your bridal bouquets, bridesmaid’s bouquets, centerpieces, arbors, boutonnieres, cakes, table settings, flower crowns - the list really goes on and on. The amazing thing about floral design is that you can scale your arrangements to have as much of a color as you’d like. So, take it up a notch by incorporating handfuls of Dahlia Lilac Time’s into your arrangements or hang on the subtle side by blending in just a few here and there.
If you’re not so sure you’re into this fad just yet, adding a few touches into your dessert design could win the hearts of many. No need to go crazy with the color to make it have an impact. By having your baker add a few blueberries or raspberries into the mix, your dessert options are transformed!
We love the idea of adding a pop of color to your favors or escort cards. A pure white paper with Ultra Violet text adds just the right amount of pop to a classic look. We encourage you to take that risk of going with a more pronounced version of an Ultra Violet.
