Ultra Violet: how to be on trend for 2018

We absolutely love the new Pantone Colour of the Year, and to see wedding industry professionals embracing the palette and showcasing them at The National Wedding Show in their 2018 designs is quite inspiring. Take a look at some of our favourite ultra violet wedding inspiration.


Why not start from the very beginning (a very good place to start). Some ultra violet invitations are the perfect way to incorporate your colour scheme from start to to finish – give your guests a little hint of what to expect from your wedding day with some simple coloured calligraphy. Purple also looks beautiful when teamed with golden touches.


Donning your bridesmaids in a selection of ultra-violet gowns can be quite stunning. The National Wedding Show catwalk shows have been brimming with a range of beautiful on trend bridesmaid dresses with something to suit everyone. Many brides are opting for colour matching gowns of different styles to please their bride tribe, a much easier way of making sure everyone is comfortable on your wedding day.


Bouquets and floral decorations can really add the finishing touches to a beautiful venue. Ask your florist for some tips on the best flowers for your season and take along colour ideas and pictures of the types of bouquets you love. Succulents are becoming increasingly popular, and are a great option if you’re looking something durable and diverse. Use them in shades of purple for bouquets, flower crowns, centrepieces or even favours.


The confetti shot is one of THE moments to capture at your wedding. There are plenty of colours and varieties to choose from – bio-degradable is our favourite and one requested by many wedding venues and churches, shown here by Shropshire Petals. Why not choose a mixture of shades for a really pretty shot – let’s just hope your guests have good aim!
