And lastly, I finish attire off with these AWESOME! shoes by Steve Madden. The bow embellishment was a MUST, but what tipped me over the edge… the even more gorg tangerine tango color – vibrant and perfect for any wow to any bride or bridesmaid outfit!
I think these invites really scream what tangerine tango is really all about, vibrant, alive, vivacious and Spring. It’s hard to choose which one I love more
Tangerine certainly doesn’t have to be the main color on your wedding invitation or paper products. What is great about this color is that it can stand alone or be an accent.
A great accent to the cocktail hour are these perfectly tangerine colored cocktail napkins.
These tangerine tango straws will make your signature cocktail much more exciting because of the WOW color.
Paper cranes are a really creative and a modern napkin embellishment (sitting on your napkin at your dinner table for decor). It is a great pop of tangerine tango color to livin’ up your wedding reception tables.
Looking to hang something fun at your ceremony site in the trees above where you will marry? Or how about above your escort card table or even your cake table? These tangerine tango tissue pom pom balls are really fun and playful.
These escort cards are really fun sitting in pink gumballs. Tangerine is a really versatile color, not only doesn’t it look great on most skin tones, but also looks great paired with many different color tones, if not all.
