Last week Pantone announced 'Radiant Orchid' as colour of the year for 2014. Pantone describes the colour as 'a captivating, magical, enigmatic purple' and we would also like to add - perfect for weddings!! This gorgeous hue will start dotting our runways and creeping into all things beauty, home and style, so if you decide on a Radiant Orchid wedding theme there'll be no shortage of inspiration. We thought we'd get you started with a little collection of Radiant Orchid inspiration from the pages of our magazines.
We totally agree with Pantone that 'this multifaceted hue is seductive when combined with red'. We are loving these vibrant tones together and we can't wait to see some brides using the bold scheme on their wedding day.
Radiant Orchid is also perfectly paired with sister shades lavender and pink!
