Pantone, the world-renowned authority on color has named “Tangerine Tango” the color of the year. This fun, vibrant color is more versatile than you may think, and can be used tastefully throughout the year for your wedding.
In the spring, use this color with light yellows and other pale accents such as pink, peach, and ivory.
This mango colored chiffon gown from Jim Hjelm is softened by the pale flowers surrounding it, and this cake display arranged by Christiane from Flora Nova illustrates the softer side of this color scheme, as well.
This bouquet designed by Aria Style adds some extra texture with kumquats in the mix.
This table arrangement by Bella Signature Design uses several bold colors that play together well.
As a dress color, Tangerine Tango is rich enough that it is flattering on a variety of skin-tones. In addition, its bold nature lends itself to being well-represented in many fabrics such as chiffon, satin, taffeta, and dupioni, thus furthering the richness of the color through a variety of textures. Every designer will have a different name and slightly different version of the color, so here are the colors to look for:
- The Dessy Group has aligned their swatches with the Pantone colors, so you will find it as “Tangerine Tango.”
- The B2 and Belsoie lines call it “Mango Tango.”
- Wtoo has the color in the dupioni fabric as “Pumpkin.”
- Mori Lee refers to it as “Jalapeno.”
- Bill Levkoff has their satin and chiffon available in “Persimmon.”
- Jim Hjelm has their silky taffeta available in “Pumpkin” and their dupioni available in “Sunset.”
