2012 Colour of the Year: Tangerine

Every year Pantone name a colour that they think will be a hot trend. Their pick always gets us excited and inspired for new wedding colour themes. Last year it was a feminine Honeysuckle shade. This year brights continue to reign supreme, but with Tangerine Tango (a reddish orange) taking the Colour of the Year crown we’re happy to announce that this colour is both masculine and feminine. The perfect choice for your wedding theme.

If visions of bright orange bridesmaid dresses are coming to mind (and have you discarding this new colour for your wedding already), hold up! Tangerine is the sophisticated version of orange, and it really will make a delightful splash at your wedding.

From a few accents to an all-tangerine floral arrangement, you can make this colour work for you (and for any season and style). Here’s how:
