It’s official! Pantone’s new color of the year for 2014 is Radiant Orchid. I’ve got to admit that I’m thrilled that we’re going to be seeing this gorgeous pinkish purple everywhere now. It’s such an easy color for most skin tones to wear and its femininity makes it absolutely perfect for a wedding palette.
Radiant Orchid is a pretty, warm, energetic hue and a really sharp contrast to last year’s emerald. The vibrancy of Radiant Orchid is going to make its way into weddings everywhere from the color of a bride’s nail polish and lipstick to the floral design and everything in-between.
Because Radiant Orchid is a nuanced color it will change slightly depending on what it is paired with. For this wedding inspiration board I wanted to pull some of the pinks out of it and balance its warmth with a cool powder blue. Plus, a touch of gold is never amiss at a wedding and yes – those are glitter unicorn escort cards!
