The Color of the Year 2012 is...Tangerine Tango!

For all fashion forward brides:

It's official, Pantone has name Tangerine Tango as the color of 2012.  This color will be the IT color in fashion, home design, and yes, weddings.  According to Pantone, the choice of Tangerine Tango "provide(s) the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward."

For those unfamiliar with Pantone, a little background: Pantone LLC is the world-renowned authority on color and provider of color systems and leading technology for the selection and accurate communication of color across a variety of industries. The wedding industry relies heavily on the Pantone color system for bridesmaid dresses, linens, and all other color items related to weddings.

Now to the good stuff!  What will Tangerine Tango look like in weddings?  Trendy brides may use Tangerine Tango as their main color, or could pair it with another color to add pizazz and pop.

One option would be to use Tangerine Tango as an accent color, while keeping all other decor white.  Additional colors can be used in this scheme, but should be kept to lighter hues to avoid competing with the red-orange color.

Bridesmaid dresses can really make a statement in Tangerine Tango, and you can find it in a variety of style to suit each of your girls.

Lounge furniture looks hot with a pop of Tangerine Tango!

Don't think that using Tangerine Tango means you can't have a traditional look for your wedding.  Roses in this color look romantic and traditional, while adding interest to classic white tables.

If you and your groom are fun, bright personalities, consider pairing Tangerine Tango with another color that creates drama and a stunning look to your wedding.  Tangerine Tango (or perhaps a lighter shade of orange) and Purple could create a fun, tropical sunset look.
