Pantone Color of the Year – Ultra Violet

A big part of being a professional wedding and event planner is not so much keeping up with the upcoming year’s trends; but keeping ahead of the trends and setting our own.

Our entire Special Moments Event Planning team works with local Tampa Bay Caterers as well as Tampa Wedding Florists to look at what they can offer our clients that is on point with trends we are seeing from celebrity planners across the country, as well as in the fashion world.

Pantone Color Institute is a consulting service that forecasts global color trends.  Well before they announced Ultra Violet as Pantone Color of the year 2018 we were working with our awesome couple Stefany and Erik to include this rich shade of purple into their Tampa wedding.

Lighting is one of the most cost effective ways to change the color of a space and incorporating this beautiful shade of purple was a show stopper at downtown Tampa wedding venue, The Vault. Nature Coast Entertainment Services lit this open, airy space that has high ceilings and clean lines to create the perfect backdrop for a wedding.

Accents of Ultra Violet were seen in the bridesmaid’s dresses, iridescent linen and napkins with subtle touches in the wedding party flowers and centerpieces. The light was reflected in the sparkle of crystal accents, mercury glass votive candles and the couple’s wedding cake.

The use of a mirrored seating chart and white chivari ballroom chairs were great accents to pull in this color without overwhelming the space.

We see Pantone Ultra Violet as the perfect color to pair with other upcoming 2018 wedding trends. Greenery is going to be incorporated into every aspect of this coming year’s weddings and Boho weddings will continue in popularity and this hue of purple incorporates easily into both of these areas as well as rustic and beach weddings.

Be sure to talk to our Special Moments Event planning team about 2018 wedding trends and how some of the trends may work well with your personality and unique wedding vision.
