A combination of fuschia, purple and pink, radiant orchid is Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2014.
While emerald was a symbol of growth and renewal, radiant orchid is a nod to creativity and innovation. “Radiant orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health,” says Pantone. “It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”
In honor of Pantone’s announcement, we rounded up 15 radiant orchid wedding details that will enhance any color palette.
