Pantone Color of the year 2023

Each year, Pantone releases the "color of the year." For 2023, they've introduced us to "Viva Magenta," a fresh look in the red hue family. According to Pantone, "It is a shade rooted in nature descending from the red family and expressive of a new signal of strength. Viva Magenta is brave and fearless, and a pulsating color whose exuberance promotes a joyous and optimistic celebration, writing a new narrative." What could be more fitting for a wedding color?

So how do you work this color into your wedding? If you're early in the planning stages, incorporating it into your wardrobe (dresses, ties, vests, shoes, accessories) or floral design is most obvious. Already past that point of the planning process? Not a problem, that's where Elevated Events comes in!

Incorporating the color of the year into your wedding decor is easy with the help of our services.

Our uplighting service can transform your room into a viva magenta dream. This color is soft and warm in tone, so it won't overpower anything else you may have going on. It will help rooms feel joyful and electrifying. 

Consider adding an elegant fabric backdrop with lighting to your room. These are beautiful behind a head table or sweetheart table. Already have the perfect backdrop behind your table? These fabric backdrops are also excellent photo-op pieces, or great ways to cover an unsightly wall, as well. Choosing the option with lighting allows you to incorporate the color of the year that way. The other option is to add it as a fabric color choice (neutral lighting is optional at that point). 

Another option is to add Viva Magenta linens to your tables. We offer table cloths and runners, napkins, and chair sashes all in the color of the year. Contact us for options and pricing.
