Color has always been my favorite way to express my style. Weddings are all about telling the couple’s love through their style and personality. Viva Magenta, the Pantone color of the year for 2023, gives couples a brilliant choice to plan their wedding with an eclectic mix of all the fashion, food, and decor they like.
From the Pantone website, Viva Magenta – “a bold and vibrant hue that speaks to a sense of optimism. With its crimson shade (18-1750), it exudes a sense of confidence and joy while also bringing a bit of playfulness.” And isn’t that what we want at a wedding?
Here are six ways to style viva magenta on your wedding day. From bridal attire, accessories, cocktails, groom’s clothing, and the bridal bouquet, viva magenta represents vivacity, excitement, and luxury, especially with gold. Let’s get started!
Viva Magenta-Wedding Fashion
First up, wedding attire for the couple. “It’s all in the details” rings true here. Adding magenta-colored shoes, a wedding sash, or a sheer cape are all chic ways to express your style and have fun.

Here’s another fabulous idea From BridesandBlossoms
“To capture the full scale of Viva Magenta, we suggest using a floral recipe comprised of various shades ranging from deep red, berry, and purple to fuchsia and hot pink. When viewed as a whole, the palette will appear to pulsate with rapturous beauty. Imagine saying “I Do” before magnificent floral arrangements featuring jewel-tone Phalaenopsis and dendrobium orchids, hydrangeas, roses, and calla lilies illuminated by glowing candles.”
Or choose two subtler inclusions of this vibrant color, like long magenta silk ribbons on your bouquet and magenta flowers on your cake. Whether you go full-on with a Viva Magenta color play or choose it as an accent color for your wedding day, look, or venue decor.
