Wedding Color Trend 2014

Ravishing Radiant Orchid

We’re ringing in the New Year here at We Design Weddings! As the snow begins to melt and the sun lingers in the sky a bit longer each day, we’re preparing ourselves for one of the most loving, liveliest times of the year – Wedding Season! We’ve just learned that Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year has been named Radiant Orchid, and we couldn’t keep from putting together a visual palette using this magical color. Enjoy!
Pantone Inc. is known for its Pantone Matching System (PMS), which is a standardized color reproduction key. The system uses 13 base pigments mixed in specific amounts to create 1,114 spot colors which are used by printers across the nation, allowing them to match colors without mailing physical swatches back and forth. Since the year 2000, Pantone has released a Color of the Year each year. The reason behind the decision is usually driven by trending world moods. This year, Pantone announced that Radiant Orchid was chosen to feed a growing desire for creativity and innovation. Wearing or seeing the color stirs a sense of charming uniqueness and the desire to communicate individuality. What an awesome wedding color!

We Design Weddings is thrilled with the selection! Radiant Orchid is a beautiful representative of the purple family, with enough pink undertones to lighten the mood. We predict brides will enjoy working with this magical color paired with other purples and white or contrasted alongside teal tones! Additionally, 2014 will see a rise in wonderful patterns, both geometric and organic. That includes everything from delicate lace to floral prints to chevron or polka dots.

A special treat for you! A perfectly radiant wedding invitation to match this year’s captivating color. As an added bonus, enjoy 25% off this design through the month of February! Click here to purchase yours today!
