Inspiration for wedding and event design can be found everywhere. One popular category is color and we designers wait, with anticipation, annually to find out the Pantone Color of the Year! The color for this year is 18-3838 Ultra Violet.

Pantone annually sends their “color authorities” to blanket the globe in search of colors in food, cars, cosmetics, clothes, and housewares. They reconvene, pool their findings, and analyse before they declare the Color of the Year. This year, Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute said that this color, “communicates originality, ingenuity and visionary thinking.” From a design aspect I love that she also says, “It’s also the most complex of all colors because it takes two shades that are seemingly diametrically opposed – blue and red – bringing them together to create something new.”

We’ve found so much inspiration from the color for this year and think that it could make a bold accent color for any event! Below are some inspiration images that we have been drooling over! Cannot wait to incorporate this color into, at least one, event this year!
