Pantone Amethyst Orchid

Amethyst Orchid

 

Pantone 17-3628 (“Amethyst Orchid”) is this week’s Fall 2015 Pantone color choice. This vibrant color is reminiscent of jewels and rich fabrics. Amethyst Orchid is an intriguing shade of purple with bold hues of pink, magenta and violet. Florals in this shade pair beautifully with neutral shades of cream, sage colored succulents and deep purple blossoms. Amethyst Orchid has been a creative and unique yet still popular color choice for wedding palettes this season. We have loved incorporating the color into wedding paper design as well – pairing it with shimmery gold ink onto purple paper and also in more traditional paper suites, using the color as a simple accent color behind the invitation. The color is versatile and works in both statement designs as well as more classic looks. For more ideas, check out Cardinal & Straw’s website, social media platforms and Etsy Shop to order your wedding invitation suite:

October Orchard Wedding

Evans Orchard Postcard

 

Happy Thursday brides! Today is the first day of October and we all know the season of fall is known for its pumpkin patches, colorful leaves, farmlands and perfect weather. Why not tie all the wonderful aspects of fall into your wedding day? An outdoor orchard wedding gives a cozy autumn feeling as the leaves begin to crisp while being surrounded by apple trees. This bride used the big beautiful barn on the plantation as the centerpiece of the wedding aisle with pews set up on each side for guests seating. The pictures above feature the bride and groom themselves as well as their wedding invitation and RSVP that were designed to look like a postcard.
