Bridesmaid gowns – One way to prominently feature the Pantone Color of the Year 2018 in your Pittsburgh wedding is to choose the color as inspiration for your bridesmaid gowns. The bridesmaids can either be in matching gowns or use complementing shades with one or two of the bridesmaids in the rich, ultra violet hue. This color also pops beautifully with a range of backdrops, whether you want to do your wedding photography indoors or outdoors!

If you’re not into a dramatic bouquet, opt for a neutral mix of flowers with subtle pops of ultra violet color.
Invitations – The use of ultra violet ink on neutral or classic white invitations is elegant and a subtle way to incorporate the color into your wedding stationery, including save-the-date and thank you cards.
Centerpieces – Easily use the Pantone Color of the Year 2018 in your Pittsburgh wedding centerpieces – vases that serve as table numbers look beautiful in shades of ultra violet. Candles, flowers and linen accents are also options depending on whether you want a bold touch or just want hints of the color throughout the wedding décor.
