Tangerine Tango

One of the best parts of planning a wedding is choosing the colors that will be incorporated into the special day. After you have your significant other, the ring, and a proposed date, color becomes a very important element in the remainder of the planning process. Think about all of the things that revolve around your wedding colors (listed in no particular order):
-Your venue
-Bridal party attire
-Ceremony and reception decor
-Invitations, Programs, Menu Cards, etc.
-Possibly the cake and favors
-A menu can even be created to work with your color scheme

The world around us is filled with so many different colors, and we create our wardrobes around the colors that we are most drawn to. A wedding should be no different! Admit it, color is one of the most important aspects of planning a wedding! While some brides have known the color(s) of their wedding since they were 5 years old, others may need to seek guidance in choosing the right color for their big day. Enter PANTONE. refers to this little gem as "A system for matching colors, used in specifying printing inks" while the fashion and wedding world would refer to it as THE world-renowned authority on colour and provider of colour systems. A color think tank if you will.

Pantone has recognized Tangerine Tango as our 2012 Color of the year, recognized as 17-1463 in their index. An excerpt from the Pantone website: “Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.” We don't know about you, but we would love for this to be the forward to the book of our dream wedding! What a beautiful description!
