Pantone 2014 Color of the Year is Radiant Orchid. Brides will love its intrigue from captivating flowers to radiant make-up as theyintegrate the magical hue into their wedding planning.

Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, Leatrice Eiseman, describes the color as “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.”

A little of this color can go a long way in Bridesmaid dresses or Bridal bouquet’s as it is quite the eye catcher. I love the versatility of the hue for both men and women’s fashion.

The rosy undertones of the color enlivens the skin and the multifaceted purple hue is absolutely HOT with reds and goes great with lavenders, purples and pinks which give multiple options for lipsticks, blushes and nails!
