[wedding wednesday] Tangerine Tango- Pantone Color of the Year

Every year Pantone announces their Color of the Year. The Color of the Year applies to all things- makeup, fashion, home decorating, and of course weddings. This year Pantone has chosen tangerine tango, a bright reddish orange hue. The Executive Director of Pantone, Leatrice Eiseman, said of tangerine tango:

“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.”

Tangerine tango sounds like just the color we all need right now…. But how can you apply this to your wedding? Voila:


1. tulips 2. red sunflowers 3. poppies 4. gerbera daisies

Bridesmaid Dresses:

If you go the matchy matchy route, Dessy has a partnership with Pantone and makes a ton of their dresses in the exact Tangerine Tango Color. You can also get everything else that matches- ties, handbags, flower girl dresses, etc. Here are four I like:
