"Tangerine Tango" has been named Pantone's Color of the Year for 2012. Don't get scared by one of fashion's chicest shades, rather use it as a starting point to play with complementary tones of amber, peach, and watermelon. San Francisco-based planner Laurie Arons immediately knew a peachy scheme would be best after visiting the venue and noting its gold-and-coral carpet. "It was serendipity!" laughs Arons. But choosing these colors wasn't just based on the venue: "Amber is very flattering to the skin" and helps create romantic photographs.
The bridesmaids carried bouquets packed with tulips, while the flower girls carried sweet baskets accented with green. A mini lounge inside featured several comfy couches in a lustrous deep peach gabric. French tulips in glass cylinders towered over rows of escort cards. The three-tiered wedding cake was accented with pale green ribbons and topped with flowers for a fresh look. In the reception room, pale peach dupioni table cloths were illuminated from above by amber spotlights. And each guest received a box of gourmet chocolates as the favor.
