Every year, the Pantone Color Institute selects a color of the year and that color ultimately resonates around the world. Everything from nail polishes and shoes to lipsticks and wedding dresses takes hold of the trend. In 2014 that color is Radiant Orchid, and what a fabulous color it is! It’s an enchanting mix of fuschia, purple and pink. It is joyful, charming, playful…and a wonderful color to incorporate into weddings! Here are some of our favorite ideas:
What’s more whimsical and playful than balloons? Everyone’s inner child will be ignited with these bright and cheerful spheres cascading up to the sky.
Food: Cocktails, cake pops, macarons (a great wedding favor) and a candy “bar”, all in the color of the year.
Beauty Details – It’s easy for any bride or bridesmaid to be right on trend with this color. Radiant Orchid is lovely as a color for shoes, makeup or jewelry.
