Pantone’s Ultra Violet for your Bridesmaids

1 February 2018

Pantone have announced their colour of the year for 2018. This year, it's Ultra Violet, a bold colour, with an air of mystery, inspiring images of fairytales and galaxies far, far way.   

The Pantone Color of the Year has come to mean so much more than ‘what’s trending’ in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today.” – Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute.

Take a look at our violet moodboard for some inspiring ideas to suit an ultra-violet colour scheme: 


Macaroons, Violet drip cake, Richard Designs bridesmaid gown - RDM1013 in Purple Rain, Violet table display, Richard Designs bridesmaid gown - RDM1064 in Amethyst , Richard Designs bridesmaids - RDM1063 in Wisteria, Richard Designs bridesmaid gown - RDM1058 in Violet,  Violet bouquet, Violet geode place names, Pretty violet donuts.

Stay on trend with your colour scheme by choosing shades of violet for your bridesmaids or within your table or floral accessories. You can choose to pop shades of violet into your flower arrangement or bridal bouquet. Pair violet with ivory roses for a contrasting look. Add hints of colour to your table arrangement with purple glasswear. Green foliage and hints of gold look luxurious combined with rich shades of violet. We think this violet drip cake looks striking, or for a lighter touch, add edible flowers to your cake or smaller desserts. 

Choose this colourful hue for your bridesmaids. If you are having three or four bridesmaids you could mix two shades of purple for their dresses like wisteria and violet. All of our bridesmaid gowns are available in any of our chiffon colours including purples that range from lilac and lavender to Violet and Amethyst.
