There are numerous variations of the color purple. Purple shades are popular every fall. Try a bright purple shade this fall - Orchid. Orchid is a bright rich purple color that resembles the color of some orchids. Radiant orchid is a cross between purple and pink. It makes it perfect if you love both colors and just can't decide. Various tones of orchid may range from grayish purple to purplish-pink to strong reddish purple. The name comes from the flowers of some species of the vast orchid family.
“Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.” – Pantone
Radiant Orchid is perfect color choice for bridesmaid dresses. Needless to say, we easily could see why fashion-forward brides-to-be are choosing this incredible hue for their girls. Radiant orchid dresses look good on everyone, it's an airy and fresh color that isn't overwhelmingly bright, and it pairs splendidly with a multitude of other pretty wedding colors.
Another way to add Radiant Orchid to your wedding is choosing Orchid flowers on your wedding. A fun way to add color to your wedding is in the shoes. If your bridesmaids are wearing a rather conservative colored dress, spice things up a bit with radiant orchid shoes in a complimentary shade.
Radiant Orchid works exceptionally well with many colors – my favorites are lighter pinks, light or deep purples, and deep midnight blue tones. It also works wonderfully with all the usual metallic colors: silver, gold, platinum, pewter, and bronze would all look great when paired with this hue. You can also mix it with softer tones like pale pink, pale blue
, and pale yellow.
