From bedroom walls to duvets and even the runway at Fashion Week, Tangerine Tango  is everywhere. And… it has been named the 2012 Color of the Year by color creating experts at Pantone! As your fellow Lake Tahoe South Shore bride, I have found this color in the inspiration for my own wedding day, and you may just be in the same boat. From a preppy pair of patent peep toe sling backs to punchy poppies in your bouquet, this vibrantly fun color can work in a variety of settings with a multitude of color combinations. Here are just a few to get you started on the inspiration path for your big day…

Be Bold

Combine this vibrant coral tone with cool blues for a jewel-toned wedding and you’ll balance the hottest color of the year with the calm, cool collectedness of a deep turquoise or sapphire blue.

This color combo is H-O-T for Lake Tahoe South Shore weddings this year… Call out the deep blues from our iconic lake and pair them with the color of the year for a bright jewel-toned summer or Fall wedding. Unexpected pops of color will show your love for all things fashion.

Be Vibrant

Get trendy by pairing this year’s hottest color with another hot color – a bright limey citrine and sweet pink honeysuckle (last year’s color of the year… btw) for a summertime garden party.

Great for beach weddings, these colors will capture the bright summer sun of the High Sierra and offer modern couples the opportunity to infuse a bit of city style with the rustic Tahoe setting.

Be Romantic

Tone down the brightness of Tangerine Tango by sliding to the lighter end of the color spectrum. Choose a somewhat muted version of the color that trends towards the apricot side of things and pair it with a cool platinum and soothing lilac for a vintage-inspired gatsby-style affair.

These lighter, sweeter colors lend naturally to some of Tahoe’s historic estates, golf courses and mountaintop venues.
