2014 Pantone Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid, 25 Wedding Ideas

Every year the Pantone “Color of the Year” influences fashion, beauty, interior design, and weddings (of course).  I wasn’t surprised to see Radiant Orchid (a shade of purple) as the 2014 Pantone Color of the Year; purple is a classic color that has been a very popular in wedding palettes.  I love the vibrant shade of Radiant Orchid, which includes fuchsia and pink undertones.

Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm…Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.” – Pantone Color of the Year Report, 2014
