“While the 2013 color of the year, Emerald, served as a symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity, Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society. An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”

Radiant Orchid works perfectly with flowers, as most purple or lavender flowers feature undertones of pink. And, Purple, in all of its different shades, is always a popular color in the wedding world, so it will be exciting to see the use of this color in the upcoming year.

Try using Radiant Orchid as a pop of color in a Modern Black and White Wedding, or use it amongst a mix of peaches, pinks, and greens for a Spring Garden Wedding.
