Color Palette: Ultra Violet
Warm weather calls for vibrant pops of color, so we think the PANTONE color of the year, Ultra Violet is perfect for a late summer wedding, whether you’re in the bridal party or a guest! We love the drama and unconventional even mystical effect this shade of purple holds. And side note, if you’re looking for something different from the “something blue”, violet is another take on the tradition; it’s a symbol of faithfulness.
If you’re feeling hesitant about going big and bold with this color, we suggest hints of the color in your florals with delicate flowers like lavender, lilac, and violet. You could also opt for a more subdued color palette by mixing outfits and accessories with soft shades of pink lavender, spring crocus, or rose quartz for a contemporary look. Or, surprise your guests with a potted Violet bloom as a wedding favor. We love a takeaway for your guests that they'll cherish long after the wedding!
