The bridal color of the year is here, and we love it!
Have you heard? The color of the year is here. Pantone has announced that the color of the year, and the winner is … “Ultra Violet”!
Ultra Violet is a deep purple with blue and grey tones. This shade works great with darker and lighter purples, and we are here for it.
Purple is a great color for a wedding for several reasons: First, there are so many shades. You can easily use violet as your main color and compliment it with lighter shades of lilac or lavender.
Purple also compliments other color schemes like: silver and green, white and grey, or pink and yellow. Here is a fun color scheme our partner Barbie of Bashes By Barbie, LLC (more info) used in a recent wedding: violet, tangerine, and lime!
“Violet is a great and upcoming color.” Says Barb of Barbs Designs LLC (more info), one of LBA’s partners who specializes in floral design and linens. “The colors of the last few years were starting to wear out.” (If you weren’t keeping up with the bridal trends last year, the colors of the year were blush and navy)
While those are an interesting combo and well utilized by our wedding designers, we can all agree that are excited to jump right in to shades of purple for this bridal season.
As you can see, purple in the clothing of the bridal party looks sharp and clean against the white of the bride’s dress and black jacket worn by the groom. Purple is also versatile in that it can be tailored to flatter any skin tone by using warmer or cooler shades.
Purple also works well with any sort of greenery, which can be an asset when planning your floral selections.
As seen in these bouquets created by Barbie at Bashes By Barbie, LLC there are many flowers that fall into the category of purple.
Lilacs, tulips and lilies all come in various shades from lighter mauves to darker violets. Roses of many colors can be used as accents.
These centerpieces made of clear glass, water, and orchids made by Barbs Designs LLC compliment the deep lilac and white color scheme used on these tables. Orchids are another flower that comes in many shades and sizes.
Looking for a less traditional flower choice? Consider thistles, button mums, and lavender. Paired with roses and greenery, these choices make for a more non-traditional and unique arrangement.
Purple is such a playful and elegant color, who can resist adding it to their wedding color scheme? With so many options for accents and pairings, it’s guaranteed to set your wedding apart any way you utilize it. From small accents in the boutonnieres to bridesmaid dresses to linens and flower arrangements, purple and the colors it encompasses are there to help. Whether you pair purple with other colors, metals, clear glass, greenery, or even shades of itself, purple can be adapted for every bride’s needs.
