According to Pantone's executive director, Leatrice Eiseman, "radiant orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health." Just in time for spring weddings, get inspired by this captivating purple theme for your big day!
From the bridesmaids' dresses to the groom's tie, radiant orchid will add an extra charm to the fashion in your wedding. Keep up with this year's bridal season trend. Try changing your wedding dress by adding a hint of soft purple. If you don't like the idea of a colored dress, that's not a problem! You can wear a traditional dress and ask your bridesmaids to wear purple gowns and the groomsmen to wear purple bowties.
Radiant Orchid is so bold and fun; it will surely draw attention at your wedding. There are endless ways that you can incorporate this theme into your décor. Think of your tabletop decorations. You have linens, dishware, napkins, candle holders, and centerpieces. All of these components can be wrapped with a touch of purple. You can even get decorative with the food and drinks that you serve. Imagine how pretty it would be to serve purple macaroons or cupcakes with purple cups and pink icing. How about a fun cocktail drink with purple food coloring? The opportunities are endless. Get as creative as your heart desires!

Either way, this sophisticated color will make for a stunning cake design. If you're going for the grand appearance, there are so many ornate purple-theme cake designs you can choose from for your wedding cake.
