Your Wedding Color in Viva Magenta: Pantone's Color for 2023!

Pantone, the global color authority has officially named Viva Magenta (Pantone 18-1750) as its Color of the Year for 2023!

"It is a shade rooted in nature descending from the red family and expressive of a new signal of strength," Pantone announced. "Viva Magenta is brave and fearless, and a pulsating color whose exuberance promotes a joyous and optimistic celebration, writing a new narrative."

Pantone also shared that Viva Magenta is, "an unconventional shade for an unconventional time: a new vision." And we couldn't agree more, Viva Magenta is certainly a vibrant and bold color.

Viva Magenta is "inspired by the red of cochineal, one of the most precious dyes belonging to the natural dye family, as well as, one of the strongest and brightest the world has known," said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, in a press release.
