2012 Fall/Winter Wedding Colors

Are you having a Fall or Winter wedding and are can’t decide which colors to use?  You are in luck! Pantone has come out with their Fall/Winter 2012 Fashion Report with the hottest colors in fashion.

 This years Fall/Winter Fashion Report has a color for everyone!  There is a mixture of bright colors and muted tones to fit any brides personality.    If you want to be on the edge of fashion trends with your wedding colors, try combining some of these colors to make your perfect color palette!

Here are some of my favorite color combinations:

French Roast and Tangerine Tango have to be the the most bold and beautiful color pairing for Fall.  I love how the Tangerine Tango is so bold against the French Roast.  You can also pair this with Honey Gold to richen the color palette.

My favorite new color combination for fall is Titanium and Ultramarine Green!  I am in love with this color green and Titanium is the perfect grey tone to compliment this deep yet vibrant green.

Blush tones are a new way to capture the essence of winter!  Pairing Rhapsody, Titanium and Rose Smoke are beautiful together showing off a soft, romantic feeling.

Honey Gold and Olympian Blue are also a perfect Fall/Winter color combination.  The Honey Gold is the perfect neutral to the brightness of the Olympian Blue.

Which color combination is your favorite?  We want to know!

Happy Planning!

Tangerine Tango: 2012 Color of the Year

Pantone announced that Tangerine Tango is the 2012 Color of the Year and it is showing up everywhere in weddings!

I have to admit when I heard the color of the year I was a little disappointed (I have never been a huge fan of orange; red hair and all :)) but when I saw Tangerine Tango I instantly knew it would be a great color for weddings.  Tangerine Tango is much deeper than a traditional orange and can be paired with so many different colors and give a different feeling depending on the shade it is paired with.  You can also use Tangerine Tango in any season if it is paired with the right color.  Here are some of my favorite pairings with Tangerine Tango as well as some tips to using this 2012 Color of the Year.

Tangerine and Navy

Tangerine and Turquoise

Tangerine and Gold

Tangerine and Purple

No need to worry about bridesmaid dresses to match. The Dessy Group has bridesmaid dresses in Pantone’s actual colors.  You can even order chiplettes of the actual color to give to vendors for planning so they can match everything perfectly! So cool!
