Viva Magenta Wedding Ideas; Pantone Colour of The Year 2023

Bright, bold and unconventional… Pantone has released their 2023 colour of the year as ‘Viva Magenta’…


“This year’s colour of the Year is powerful and empowering. It is a new animated red that revels in pure joy, encouraging experimentation and self-expression without restraint, an electrifying, and boundaryless shade that is manifesting as a stand-out statement. PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta welcomes anyone and everyone with the same verve for life and rebellious spirit. It is a colour that is audacious, full of wit and inclusive of all.”


As always we now wait in anticipation to see all the complimentary wedding products that will launch into the wedding industry to allow us to create a beautifully styled wedding where this welcoming and inclusive colour will be the focus. With its tones of red and pink, this colour spectrum will work in any season but will truly shine for autumn/winter nuptials.

Your stationery is the first thing your guests will see so make it stand out!  Using your wedding colours as the focus will help carry your theme through to your big day. Go bold with a full colour magenta theme or for a softer feel use the colour to seep through with a dreamy watercolour tone. We love these designs, and they truly show the scope you can have when it comes to using these colours and moulding them to your theme of chic and classic to a bright and bold wedding day!

Using magenta flowers can definitely give the wow factor to your bouquet. Use bright tones for a spring/summer wedding and deeper tones for autumn/winter nuptials. If you want to create an impact then go for a bouquet of all the same flowers, or for a softer tone mix magenta flowers with other tones on the spectrum. Don’t forget about dried flowers too. Natural pampas grass would look great with these colours.
