If you are planning a wedding for 2023 and aren’t quite sure what your color scheme should be, consider the Pantone color of the year- PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta. If you aren’t familiar with Pantone, they are the global authority on color. Just like love is universal so is color. And for the past 60 years, Pantone has been the universal language of color with its revolutionary color-matching system.
Viva Magenta is described as, “a new animated red that revels in pure joy, encouraging experimentation and self-expression without restraint, an electrifying, and a boundaryless shade that is manifesting as a stand-out statement.” Viva Magenta is a powerful color originating from the red family. “An unconventional shade for an unconventional time.”
As its moniker suggests it is a color with longevity, life, and vibrancy. The color has been described as brave and fearless and promotes joyous and optimistic celebration. We don’t know about you but that color screams passion and excitement especially when connected to true love! This hue has inspired us once again to showcase some of our favorite wedding-related products. As always, if you need more inspiration you can always search our Real Weddings section by color. And if you are still struggling to pick your perfect wedding colors, this post has some great tips and tricks.
