Radiant Orchid: The 2014 PANTONE Color and Your Wedding

Before working at the Wedding Shoppe, I was unaware of the buzz PANTONE created when they announced the Color of the Year. Who knew one PANTONE color could inspire an entire industry? 2014 is the year of Radiant Orchid—I can already smell the purple wedding flowers! PANTONE describes this stunning shade as follows:
“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. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple, and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love, and health.” –PANTONE
As you can see, this purple packs a punch. It’s already left its mark on the industry, and Pinterest has been flooded with purple. This PANTONE color has inspired me too, so read on to discover what I want to paint purple.

This PANTONE color and your wedding party.

PANTONE picked a gorgeous color for wedding party attire. This shade of purple is bright and beautiful, without being overpowering. The Dessy Group embraces the popularity of PANTONE colors in all of their collections. You can see that Radiant Orchid brings out the beauty of their elegant silhouettes. This is a color your entire wedding party will love wearing on the big day.

Purple Wedding Flowers: Orchids, Lilacs, and Lavender.

Using orchids or other purple wedding flowers is a great way to include the 2014 PANTONE color in your décor. If you choose bridesmaid dresses in a neutral color, like champagne or gold, have your ladies carry purple bouquets. Long stems of lavender would look amazing along the aisle, and vases of lilacs would make the entire room smell like heaven. Seems like PANTONE picked your flowers for you this year—there’s one item checked off your list!

What else can I paint purple?

Wedding color schemes can shine in so many elements of your big day, from the lighting, to your shoes, to your manicure. Desserts also look gorgeous in purple; add blackberries or flower petals for an organic, orchid touch. Feeling inspired? It’s your turn to take this color and paint whatever you desire.
