Since my post before last detailed a navy blue wedding, I decided to use that to jump off Wedding Color Week here at Tri-State Belles.
I’ve also been in a huge tangerine mood ever since I bought the most perfect shade of nail polish in tangerine (Essie’s Tart Deco if you’re wondering.) So, we’ll mix the two together and see what we come up with:
From left to right:
This cake brings in the tangerine beautifully. The next cake is equally as goregous. Replace the snokeflakes with flowers or another design would be easy and amazing. The navy blue clutch with a tangerine ribbon (purchased from Etsy) would be great bridesmaid gifts. The right shows some simple navy blue bridesmaid dresses that could actually be worn again! The blue table on the bottom right hand corner is perfect for a more formal wedding, while the tangerine reception next to it would be perfect for a less-formal affair. Love those laterns! The last two photos detail orange/tangerine bouquets.
What’s the difference between tangerine and orange? Basically it’s hue and saturation. The best way to describe hue and saturation is that hue is the color family a paticular color belongs to, and the saturation is the vividness of that color. Tangerine falls into the orange family, and is more vivid than your typical pumpkin orange. Another way of describing the two is that it takes both yellow and red to make orange. The pumpkin orange we think of is the perfect 50/50 mixture of yellow and red. Tangerine would fall towards the more yellow side of the equasion, such as 30% red, 70% yellow.
Not crazy about tangerine? Orange would work as well, and yellow or gold would give similar effects.
