With the close of 2013, it’s time for the 2014 color forecast and Pantone’s new color of the year! While last year was everything emerald, this year is Radiant Orchid. A harmony of fuchsia, purple, and pink, brides can’t go wrong with this expressive and exotic color. It’s bold. It’s warm. It exudes confidence.

“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.”

What does this mean for brides who want to make a statement? It’s your year and Pantone’s Radiant Orchid is your color.

For your entrance, make it bold and inviting.

For the wedding cake, adorn it with its own shades of Radiant Orchid. A waterfall of flowers never looked so good!

If you are looking for something simpler, how about an ombre wedding cake with Radiant Orchid as the main attraction?

If you want to make your bouquet bold, why not consider a full bouquet of Phalaenopsis.

No matter how you choose to sport your color of the year, Radiant Orchid will exude the warmth and excitement of your wedding day.
