Weddings bring out the LOVE in all of us. It’s intoxicating really, with a picturesque setting, delightful flowers, warmhearted smiling friends and family, delicious cake and all that dancing …I’m getting all fuzzy in my heart just thinking about it!
On this lovely spring day, I explore the remaining top 5 wedding colors for Spring 2014 along with the complimentary Swarovski color palette.
First up, the gorgeous and romantic color of Orchid!
This exquisitely rich purple hue is captivating and since being named the Pantone Color of the Year, all shades of purple and fuchsia have exploded in popularity. The complimentary Swarovski colors include all shades of Amethyst as well as Amethyst AB, Amethyst AB-2X, Amethyst Satin and Amethyst Blend. Lilac, Lilac AB and Lilac Champagne are fantastic saturated purple tones similar to Amethyst but a hint lighter. Crystal Lilac Shadow and Violet Satin are elegant sparkling purple effects that compliments the Radiant Orchid palette beautifully.
The vibrant berry-like tones found in Fuchsia, Fuchsia AB, Fuchsia AB-2X and Fuchsia Satin flatters these deeper purple hues wonderfully and blends perfectly with this color palette.
