Wedding Inspiration: Tangerine Tango is Summer’s Hottest Hue

We love colour. Don’t you? If the answer is yes, then you’ll fall head over heels for summer’s biggest hit (and Pantone’s 2012 colour of the year): Tangerine Tango. This punchy orange jazzes up your wedding style with its bright spirit, whether it takes the main stage or simply accents a lovely neutral.

Pantone Tangerine Tango

The colour is, according to Pantone, “Sophisticated, dramatic and seductive” and “marries the vivaciousness and adrenalin rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.” Well said!

Here are some inspiring ways you could use it in your wedding:

Cocktail Concoctions

If you’re using Tangerine Tango as your signature-wedding colour, consider creating a signature cocktail in the same hue. Ask your wedding bartender or wedding planner to come up with a couple of options – perhaps using fizzy orange or juice, in advance for you to taste test. We’d like to get cocktail hour started with a Tequila Sunrise…

Rockin’ Reception Tables

The versatile orange colour works well as an accent to pretty neutrals like whites, creams, golds and browns. You can virtually incorporate it anywhere you like on the reception tables, including funky candles and your guests’ favours.

Fiery Flower Petals

From your bouquet to centrepieces to your walk down the aisle, go wild for Tangerine. We love this idea (and colour combo of white and orange, by the way) of sprinkling colourful petals down the aisle instead of having a runner:
