Pretty In Pantone: Here’s How You Can Include The *Colour Of The Year* In Your Wedding!

We Indians love to experiment, and there is not one ounce of doubt about this. Be it with food, clothes or weddings, we just love mixing and matching things and coming up with cool new ideas. So for those of you who do not know, ultra violet has been chosen as the Pantone Colour of 2018. It is such a beautiful shade and we are in love with it. If you’re getting married this year, then we suggest you read through this article that’ll help you with some awesome ways of including the pantone colour of 2018 in your wedding.

1. First things first - the decor

The wedding decor is the first thing your guests will notice about your wedding. Ask your decorator to use as many violet and purple flowers to do up the venue. Mix it up with white or light pink flowers and you get a dreamy setup for your fairytale wedding.

2. Decor part 2!

If you do not want to spend a lot of money on flowers, then you might want to opt for ultra violet drapes for the chairs. You can ask your wedding decorator to deck up the chairs and tables with violet coloured fabric. Drapes at the entry or around the mandap can also be of the same colour.

3. The violet wondergirl

Red and pink wedding lehengas are so passé. Be a hatke bride and wear a purple lehenga at your wedding. Ultra violet will beautifully complement dull gold jewellery and give you a totally unique look.  

4. Pretty, pretty cake

This is just the perfect way to stay on trend without having to experiment with your outfit or the wedding decor. A violet wedding cake is perfect to add that dreamy touch to your engagement ceremony.

5. The one with the bridesmaids

Your bridesmaids are probably more excited for your shaadi than you are! Make them a part of your ultra violet club, and let them colour coordinate their outfits in either the same colour or shades of it. This will make for one cutesy wedding photoshoot with the besties.

6. Jazz up the jewellery

Yep, colour contrasting is in. If the colour of your wedding outfit is such that violet-toned jewellery can be matched with it, then go ahead and do it. You’ll totes not regret your decision.

7. Colour coordinate with hubby dearest

This is another way of going about the trend. Include hubby dearest in the planning and wear colour coordinated clothes on the big day, just like Plixo Super Blogger Shreya Kalra did on her wedding reception. They look adorbs, don’t they?

8. Floral jewellery in violet, why not!


If your wedding day outfit is not violet or violet-toned jewellery doesn’t go with any of your dresses, then you can just opt for cool floral jewellery in purple and look all pretty. It doesn’t have to be coordinated with your outfit and is a safe choice for the mehendi function.

9. Orchid jaimalas are your safest bet

This can be one quick last minute fix if you completely forgot about the pantone colour trend while planning for your wedding earlier. Just get orchid jaimalas and you’re sorted. They look gorgeous!

With so many great ideas to choose from… We think you should start colour coordinating already!
