Every year Pantone declares a color of the year based on current atmosphere and trends amongst the fashion and design communities. This year’s radiant orchid is a fantasy combination of purple, pink, and fuchsia undertones. Here are our thoughts on why this color is destined to be an all-around favorite for 2014!

1. It Aims to Please :: One of the hardest things about planning a wedding, is the pressure of pleasing others while keeping to your personal vision. Luckily, Radiant Orchid is an extremely flattering hue that can stand on it’s own while working beautifully with other shades. And it’s a perfect choice for bridesmaids as it complements cool and warm skin tones.
2. It Plays Nice With Others :: As evidenced by the 2014 Pantone Spring Color Report, Radiant Orchid can be paired with myriad colors to create color stories that range from the subdued (think Paloma, Hemlock & Sand) to the sensational (imagine Freesia, Dazzling Blue & Celosia Orange). Whether it’s floral, linens or light, it’s hard to go wrong with this versatile hue.
3. It’s Fit For Royalty & Oozes Romance :: Purple is equal parts regal and romantic and it certainly adds a hint of magical mystery and a romantic flair to any occasion. Don’t believe us? Check out these fairytale worthy images.
