The world always waits in anticipation for Pantone to declare the colour of the year. This year’s superstar is Radiant Orchid.
When asked why Pantone chose Radiant Orchid as the colour of the year, Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute® explained, “Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination. 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 is a romantic colour that lends itself perfectly to weddings. It can be incorporated into all aspects of a wedding, in all seasons and all styles of weddings. Use Radiant Orchid as main colour in:
- Specialty Linens
- Maid of Honour and Bridesmaids’ Dresses
- Groom and Groomsmen’s Ties and/or Boutonnieres
- Wedding Cake Decoration
If you find Radiant Orchid a little too overpowering, try it as an accent for a pop of colour. Use it as a border on invitations. A splash of Radiant Orchid in your décor will add a lovely aura of romance. For some visual interest add a table runner or serviettes in Radiant Orchid. A single orchid bouquet or boutonniere is an elegant touch. Add a single flower in Radiant Orchid to a centrepiece. A sash in Radiant Orchid on the Maid of Honour and Bridesmaids’ dresses is a perfect embellishment. Radiant Orchid will definitely add a wow factor to your wedding cake.
