Radiant Orchid Inspiration Board

Radiant Orchid Inspiration

We’ve become absolutely smitten with the Pantone colour of the year here at The Wedding Scoop. In today’s featured inspiration board, we take a look at the naturally decadent Radiant Orchid at its best - paired with neutral hues and generous helpings of gold for the most opulent of weddings.

Styling Tips

- Be sure to balance out the richness of radiant orchid with a neutral palette. Gold, white, and cream work best.

- Garden venues allow orchids to shine in their natural environment.

- Don’t be afraid to add other colours to the mix - silver, pinks, greens and other shades of purple work well with radiant orchid!

- For a more conservative approach, use radiant orchid as an accent to an all-white wedding. In the case of this opulent shade, a little indeed goes a long way.

- Purple lights can help to accentuate the effect.

- Be bold and experiment with an orchid-coloured wedding dress! For a less daring but equally beautiful look, have your bridesmaids don varying shades of purple to complement your white/off-white frock.

{What is a wedding moodboard and why use one?}

A wedding mood board is a way to visually communicate how you envision your wedding to look or feel. It should give a sense of your wedding's overall style and mood. It may not show you the the exact items you will have on your special day (this can be worked on later in your planning) but is used to share your vision with wedding vendors who can help bring your ideas to life.
