Pantone Color of the Year - 2018
This theme from pantone blends well with the rental industry trends we have been observing in our customer base People are looking outside the norm and for custom accenting with personal touches. Classic items are still very prevalent, but personal touches and unique finishes are more common than ever. We think this classic purple is perfect for an elegant wedding with lots of chic touches for a unique and personable look on your big day.
“A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future,” - Pantone
How can you incorporate ultra-violet into your event with rental product? We have been seeing brides mixing different shades of purple in décor and tablescapes through runners, base cloths, or drapery. Uplighting is one of the best ways to get a splash of ultra-violet on focal points throughout your venue. We carry Eternal Lightings CubeEcho units which has true UV diodes. We also carry splash lighting with UV effects over larger areas.
Violet accent are great mixing with classic whites and ivory or metallics like silver and gold.
Flowers are a great way to add purple splashes; Irises, bell flowers, sweet williams, love in the mist, thistles, carnations and violets all have shades of purple that will stand out on a white, ivory, or neutralbackdrop or tablecloth.
