Back in Roman times purple shades were so prized that that only the Roman Emperor was permitted to wear a purple hue. And this year a shade of purple - Ultra Violet 18-3838 - has been chosen as Pantone's color of the year. As Pantone say: “Ultra Violet is a blue based purple that is enigmatic and complex, and suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead and the discoveries beyond where we are now. ”


Pantone’s Ultra Violet is the perfect choice for brides and here’s why:

  • Purple is considered by some to have a significant mental effect when we wear it and when we see it.
  • It is thought to calm the mind and destress which is very useful for brides then!
  • It has an uplifting effect, so everybody is going to be really happy at a purple-themed wedding of course!
  • It is considered spiritual

So how exactly do you incorporate this striking, regal shade of violet into your wedding day? You could think big, bold and monochromatic—or, if you can't quite commit, sprinkle hints of Ultra Violet throughout your day to add depth and energy to anything from cake embellishments to flower girl dresses.

Here, some of our favorite ways to dress up Ultra Violet for your wedding:

  • Mixed assortment of flowers
  • Ultra violet ribbon around bouquets
  • Romantic flower crowns
  • Bridesmaids and flowergirl dresses
  • Statement ties for groomsmen
  • Wedding keepsake boxes with Ultra Violet ribbon
