Pantone, the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, announced on December 8th that PANTONE® 17-1463 Tangerine Tango, a vivacious, enticing hue, is the color of the year for 2012.

“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.”

Want to use Tangerine Tango in your wedding? It can be the splash of color your already neutral palate may need. Incorporate it in your flowers, stationary, and pillows for your lounge seating. If you're a little more daring this would be the perfect vibrant color for your bridesmaids and tangerine linens are sure to brighten up your reception!

Many past brides have already jumped on the orange bandwagon so there's lots of inspiration out there. When it comes to infusing color, the options are endless. We're looking forward to seeing how all you newly engaged couples use it in your upcoming weddings.
