Fabulous flower centerpieces in an extraordinary purple shade

When it comes to your flower centerpieces, you should definitely opt for Ultra Violet ones – especially if you don’t want to go overboard with this color and paint the whole venue purple. Needless to say, this shade is quite bold and leaves a powerful impression, so be sure to tone everything down a bit and go for luxurious purple flower centerpieces that are likely to steal the show. Once you make that happen, just add a few white flowers and some greenery, and you’ll accomplish a beautiful balance between softer and bolder shades.

Bridal accessories featuring the lovely Ultra Violet

On the other hand, if you’re one of those brides who want to incorporate Ultra Violet into their wedding looks, but don’t really want to go for a purple wedding gown, you should opt for some stunning accessories that feature this shade. Of course, not all brides are lovers of sky-high heels, so if you want to opt for something far more comfortable, you should buy sandals or wedges that’ll allow you to move with ease all day long. As for their color, purple should be your number one choice! You can also add a romantic purple headband or a sophisticated satin belt with some shiny crystals in the same color. However, if you’re a bride who really wants to stand out from the crowd – you can always dye your hair purple. A lot of ladies think that this move is a bit too extreme, and the truth is that only the bold brides will manage to pull it off properly!

You won’t go wrong with Ultra Violet bridesmaids’ dresses

Purple bridesmaids’ dresses are never a bad choice, especially if you aren’t willing to put on a wedding gown which features that color. Of course, the choice is totally up to you, as brides are always in charge of their bridesmaids’ dresses, but you can always ask your best friends for their opinion as they’re the ones who will actually wear those dresses. Remember that different girls have bodies of different shapes and sizes, and don’t make them wear the same dresses because there’s no chance that these will look equally flattering on each girl. Besides that, you can also match their dresses with your bridal accessories – just remember to find the exact purple shade and you’ll be more than fine!

As you can see, there are so many amazing ways to incorporate Ultra Violet, Pantone’s Color of the Year 2018 into your wedding day like a true pro. Just use it sparingly and don’t go overboard with it, and you certainly won’t make a mistake!
