5 Ways to Make Your Wedding Pop With Ultra Violet

                          Have you heard? Purples are in! Pantone® announced that Ultra Violet is the 2018 Color of the Year. “The Color of the Year is one moment in time that provides strategic direction for the world of trend and design, reflecting the Pantone Color Institute’s year-round work doing the same for designers and brands.” (Pantone.com)

This dramatic, thoughtful purple is meant to spark curiosity about the world and what the future holds. It is reminiscent of the immense, mysterious night sky that deepens in lovely purples as twilight lingers. Ultra Violet can be a part of your special wedding day, too, by reminding you of the future and making moments even sweeter.
