orange wedding inspiration board

Tangerine Tango, while a bit more red than the orange hues in this wedding inspiration board, was last year’s Pantone color of the year and it spurned a whole slew of orange weddings. In all honesty though – I still can’t get enough of tangerine, nectarine, and orange-colored weddings. It’s such a vibrant, fun, and young color! Orange weddings work best outside in a setting surrounded by either rich greens or natural and neutral tones like in this inspiration board. Mix in blushes and corals to help amp up the warmth of your wedding palette. Natural sunlight is going to really help these colors come to life so don’t be afraid to have an outdoor wedding!
