Pantone announced it's color of 2014 this week and it's so beautiful! We can think of so many different dazzling wedding compliments for the new "in color"; Radiant Orchid.
While a Beautiful Beginnings wedding was definitely one of the first things to come to mind for us, we immediately dove into our online wedding planner inventory to find gorgeous compliments.
So far, we're really loving pairing Radiant Orchid flowers with a deep red, satin bow to make a stunning and smooth, full-bodied, twilight wedding bouquet. To keep your wedding bright and sunny, pair your Radiant Orchid wedding items with a soft lavender and a touch of sea glass for a playful, beach wedding. Seriously, our minds are running a million miles an hour here!
Excited about the new color? Why don't you indulge in our "Purple" board on Pinteret for tons of orchid-hues inspiration and then head over to the WeddingMoons online wedding planner and put together your gorgeous wedding board. Play with as many colors as you want and plan a beautiful wedding in your style all from the comfort of your home!
Can you imagine using a Radiant Orchid-inspired palette on your wedding day?

Q: Hi Sunny! My fiancé Ryan and I are planning to elope. We're both really private people with relatively small families and since we started getting serious, we've always joked about running away together. After 3 years together, he [my fiancé] asked me to marry him two weeks ago and I happily accepted. We haven't told anyone yet because we want a private island ceremony and we're scared how our friends and family are going to accept this news. We know this is what we want to do for sure, we've just been dancing around the announcement. I'm dying to tell everyone but I dread making the elopement announcement too. Have do other couples usually do this? We just want to start planning the fun parts. Thanks! - Carla and Ryan.
Sunny Says after the jump.
