It’s hard to believe Spring is a couple months away – although in the world of wedding planning Spring literally is right around the corner.
1) COLORS: In Fall of 2011 it was about dark browns and pastels – but this coming Spring, hold on to your hats – Pantone Tangerine Tango is not only gracing weddings, but is Color of the Year. Bold and bright, this color would mix nicely or go-it-alone. Although not alone in the wheel for Spring weddings, it certainly seems to be the trend setter in fashion colors.
2) Dresses: From deep V-necklines to high slit skirts, dresses seem to – pardon the reference Justin T. – bring sexy back. Sparkle, drapes, ruffles, and more seem to show a partnership between glamour and bold that makes a real statement for the dress wearer.
3) Hair: Not to be outdone by clothing, hairstyles seem to mirror the need for statement making for 2012. Braids for up-dos are making a comeback, however not quite like we’ve seen in the past. Asymmetrical patterns, letting the hair flow on its own and not being afraid of imperfection, or maybe even a touch of “messy” helps accentuate the suave dress and thought out design.
4) Cake: For some, it really is all about the cake. From separate cakes for the bride, groom, and guests to works of art, these will take your breath away.
So, brides, get yourself together because we’re about to jump into Spring, and this year, it’s going to be a bright, sexy, and slightly messy affair…or in this case, season. Whether you choose to keep things low-key on your big day with neutrals and naturals, or make it a jaw dropping bright, colorful, ‘oh my gosh I can’t believe she did that’ all out party, have fun and celebrate your commitment of love, and the season.
Ever since the Pantone Color Institute announced that the reddish-orange shade called ' Tangerine Tango' has been chosen as the 2012 color of the year, I've received a few emails asking about subtle, modest ways to incorporate it into a wedding theme. With a color such as tangerine, it's important to compliment your intended color palette with "pops of color" instead of overpowering and taking away from the other design elements. One simple and effective way to do this is by accenting your floral decor.
Below are the top 10 picks that can help any bride gracefully apply some Tangerine Tango to their big day.
