This year’s Pantone Color of the Year is Vivid Magenta and we are living for it! The best part is this color is so fun to use in all your different pre-wedding and wedding festivities! Below we have all the tips and trends you need to know on this bright and bold color.
We didn’t want to just give you wedding day uses for this color considering planning events start way before the big day! For your engagements party, engagement photo session, and beyond you can easily add this color as a small detail or a big focal point.
Engagement Party Décor
Engagement parties are great because they give you a small taste of how a pop of color may carry over to your big day, but with way less pressure. Try incorporating the magenta color to your décor like in a fun balloon wall, floral focal point, or with your party signage. We particularly love the idea of a personalized ice cream cart like this couple did!

Invitations to the Big Day!
Invitations are not just simple pieces of paper, they are a real chance to show off your wedding day vibe and creativity. Use the pop of pink in the font color, as the bold envelope your guests open, or as a smaller detail in the stamp or wax melt.

Blue and pink have been a classic wedding-day color combination for a long time now, and we see no reason for that to stop! We love how exciting these colors can be when paired with the boldness of magenta and the dreaminess of cobalt – turning a classic color scheme on its head.
