When Pantone announced the 2018 color of the year was Ultra Violet, many people in the fashion industry were disappointed. But here at St. Pucchi, we knew right away the gorgeous possibilities for an elegant, ultra violet wedding. After all, designer Rani St. Pucchi was the first one to introduce the violet/lilac color into the bridal world when she designed the corset wedding dress, style 6208, that ‘Phoebe’ wore on the hit TV sitcom, Friends.
The violet color oozes romance, and pairs well with glamorous gold, soft and pretty pinks, whites, greens and even navy. The possibilities are practically endless, so we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite ways to incorporate ultra violet into your wedding day.
Violet flowers and wedding gowns are such a merry pair, the result is a beautiful romantic feel. A solid-color bouquet of deep violet-colored orchids can be simple yet sophisticated. You can also integrate cream and blush flowers for a softer look. When used in floral arrangements, violet truly bursts with beauty.
Ultra Violet Accents
Your groom’s tie, your wedding shoes, flowers on your dress, and even your wedding cake are great places to incorporate a little lilac into your wedding day. Don’t forget to incorporate violets into other places like your wedding invitations, place cards or even your wedding favors.
Ultra Violet Beauty
When thinking about your wedding colors, don’t forget to consider how your beauty look complements your wedding dress and the day’s decor! A bold ultra violet nails or even a dramatic violet eye are gorgeous ways to use the color on yourself. Just remember, less is more! Go for a bold lip or eye, but never both.
