Colour Trend: Radiant Orchid

If you're looking for floral colour inspiration for an eye-catching bridal bouquet, we've explored the design world trends and we really love the saturated hue of the 2014 Pantone Colour of the year "Radiant Orchid". This rich jewel tone, a cross between pink and purple, has a magnificant array of chromaticity within its colour vein and opens up a realm of possibility for inclusion into your wedding florals. 

Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute explains...

“ ... 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.” 

For a summer or spring wedding, we suggest using floral elements in brighter hues such as bougainvillaea, hanging amaranths, hydrangeas, peonies and roses. To add a tropical vibe, we love the idea of fresh flower crowns incorporating an array of warmer hues in rich reds, fuschia pinks and vibrant purples. Take a look at our Hibiscus styled shoot for more inspiration. 

For a softer, more subdued palette of florals that evoke an enchanting and whimsical mood for a rustic country wedding, we suggest using chive flowers, lavender, deep purple nigella pod, sweet pea and rich purple moonstone carnations, incorporating them with fresh white blooms or a palette of neutrals, greys and taupes. It's best to check with your florist for the seasonal availability of all blooms to make sure you're not disappointed. 

If you're not sure where to start looking for florists, we can highly recommend the work of our favourite florists Stem Design, B Sweet Flowers and Ginger Lily & Rose.
