1 | Ultraviolet Wedding Cake
For an elegant and trendy Ultraviolet wedding, make a statement with a floral ombre cake or a marble cake artistically accented with metallic gold. Skip the full on Ultraviolet cake and opt for a pop of Ultraviolet instead with unique details. This deep blue-violet Pantone color is already so vibrant that you don’t need an all purple wedding cake to make a statement. Tone it down by choosing a simple wedding cake foundation and then adding a pop of color (without overdoing it). Alternatively, you can forego the wedding cake altogether and go with Ultraviolet cupcakes or ombre macarons, instead. With Ultraviolet, you can choose a deep palette such as deep blue floral details or pair it with berry colors.
2 | Bold Ultraviolet Bouquet & Centerpieces - Purples, Blues, and Reds
Mix Ultraviolet and purples with red and orange for a bright tropical island wedding. Or if you’ll be tying the knot in a less exotic but equally enchanting setting, such as a beautiful green garden, colors such as plum, deep red, blue, and purple look nice. For a dramatic wedding, create contrast with dark and light flowers such as vibrant Ultraviolet flowers with soft periwinkle, lilac, or lavender. Dusty rose and mauve pair well with Ultraviolet for a vintage wedding. Want a little bit of something extra for a truly memorable wedding? Add pops of yellow flowers such as yellow poppies or wildflowers for a stunning summer wedding.
3 | Ultraviolet Wedding Decor & Accent Color
Deep colors such as blue, magenta, and Ultraviolet will stand out in a rustic woodland wedding. Accent these colors with neutral and earthy hues. The contrast will make your summer wedding even brighter with vibrant tones. Blue dyed dendrobium orchids, hyacinths, blue anemone, and blue tinted statice are just a few of the gorgeous flowers from which to choose for your summer Ultraviolet wedding. Arrange them around the centerpieces for the dinner reception tables, place them all around the wedding guestbook, or sprinkle them on the aisles for a magical touch. Don’t forget to place a beautiful blue flower for the ring boy’s boutonniere or the flower girl’s hairpiece.
4 | Ultraviolet Centerpiece & Wedding Favors
It’s not a glamorous wedding without a gorgeous centerpiece to make a statement and a matching beautiful tablescape. Complete the experience with wedding favors that your guests will love. For a luxurious Ultraviolet wedding, find creative ways to incorporate the rich royal color for your wedding favors, such as tying a silk ribbon with fresh lavender around hand milled soap. For the centerpiece and tablescape, gold and Ultraviolet enhance a royal wedding decor. Opt for gold tableware for a French Baroque or glamorous vintage inspired wedding.
5 | Ultraviolet Floral Arch or Ceremony Backdrop
Just wow! There is nothing more beautiful than a gorgeous purple floral arch or wedding ceremony tent. Say “I do” with Ultraviolet blooms. Ultraviolet is a deep and rich color that is perfect for signifying and celebrating your special day. For a classy wedding decor, stick with traditional colors such as cream and white. Neutral colors are the perfect backdrop for an Ultraviolet wedding. Whether you have an outdoor or indoor wedding, green is another gorgeous backdrop color for Ultraviolet.
