Radiant Orchid, the Colour of 2014

Radiant Orchid is tipped by Pantone to be the 2014 colour of the season. Whilst this vibrant tone of purple may seem a bit daunting to some, this really is a very versatile colour that you can throw into your wedding scheme on a large scale or use as an accent. It is a very versatile colour that sits easily with neutrals like grey/ivory & it will come to life when paired with softer tones of lilacs, peaches and zesty limes or waxy succulents.

Orchid wedding cake

Mmmm… delicious orchid ombre frill cake adorned with delicate sugar paste flowers. If you decide on a simpler design you could decorate with VV Rolleoux ribbons which you can also use for your stationary, & additional wedding decor.

Your bridesmaids will look gorgeous in either this vibrant orchid bandeau Breita dress by Coast, on sale for £95, or this sweetheart lilac chiffon Nadia prom dress by J CREW, £250

Cara’s orchid lips paired with the white orchids in her hair is a good example, which with your white wedding dress you can pull off these stunning earrings & Jimmy Choos if your dress covers them but if you have a cocktail dress length you could loose the earrings in favour of your Choos

Last but not least lets enjoy a berry infused cocktail that will taste delicious & take on the right shade of colour to bring your colour scheme together in full wing, your guests will be so impressed!orchid wedding bride
