Viva Magenta is a bright, cheerful colour perfect for adding a celebratory atmosphere to weddings. It has warm and cool tones so that it can be used in various ways. Whether you want to incorporate it into your centrepieces and décor or just use it as an accent colour, there are many ways to use Viva Magenta to make your wedding special.

Here's how you can incorporate Pantone's 2023 colour of the year into your table centrepieces, decor, etc. Let your big day radiate viva magenta!

1. A Bowl of Small Flower Arrangements

Weddings provide an opportunity to express your style through beautiful flower arrangements. Vibrant Magenta blooms can be used to make a bold statement, but smaller floral arrangements in compote bowls can still be just as stunning. Not only are smaller arrangements more budget-friendly, they make it easier for guests to talk across the table.

For any season, you can choose the perfect flower to match the time of year; Amaryllis for winter, tulips for spring, dahlias for summer, and sunflowers for fall. Place one bowl in the middle of round tables or several down the length of rectangular tables. 

2. Table Settings Adorned with Fruit

Fruit can be a beautiful addition to any table setting that features Viva Magenta. To create a luxurious and timeless look, you can add cut figs, dried slices of blood orange, and pomegranates with guests' names written on them as name cards. Together, the colours and textures of these fruits provide an elegant and sophisticated touch.

3. Shimmery Crystals and Agates

Stones are becoming increasingly popular for weddings. From shimmery Viva Magenta to deep burgundy, these gemstones can add a touch of natural beauty to your big day. Ring boxes can be used to showcase jewellery in photos, and agates can be used to create place cards or as inspiration for wedding day decorations and accessories.

4. Tall Candles and Holders to Match

Candles are a great way to add a romantic feel to any wedding. To really make a statement with a vibrant colour like Viva Magenta, use tall taper candles in a deep magenta colour. To take it one step further, find magenta candle holders to match. For a more eclectic wedding, use deep red hobnail glass as candle holders. For a vintage wedding, use patterned glass to hold the candles.

5. Tablecloths

Don't be afraid to get creative when it comes to tablecloths! Try making a unique look by combining different fabric types, such as chiffon, velvet, sequins, and cheesecloth. You can also mix up patterns by using a bold pattern for the head table and more subtle patterns for the other tables. Have fun and experiment with different textures and colours to make the perfect look for your event.

6. Velvet Chairs

Investing in magenta chairs can add a touch of luxury to your wedding. Opt for tufted velvet chairs for a chic and elegant look, or incorporate cane chairs for a contemporary feel. To save money, use folding chairs throughout most of the venue and focus on the more intricate chairs at the head table.


Incorporating Viva Magenta into your wedding is a great way to make a bold statement and create a beautiful atmosphere. Not only is it Pantone's Colour of the Year for 2023, but it also evokes feelings of joy and enthusiasm. Whether you opt for a full-on magenta wedding or just add a few small touches here and there, you can be sure that everyone will be in awe of your beautiful and unique colour palette.
