By now, many people know that Tangerine Tango was named the 2012 color of the year. Trend watchers everywhere giddily await the annual announcement of Pantone's Color of the Year. After all, Pantone's decision will influence trends in weddings, home decor, fashion and many other industries.
Earlier this year, they released their top color for 2013 – and it’s Emerald – described as "a lively, radiant and lush green… a color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony."
Here are a few ideas to incorporate into your wedding using the 2013 Color of the Year:
Rings - For the nontraditional bride, an emerald (color, not cut!) engagement ring may be the perfect choice! A great look is an engagement ring with emerald accent stones. This style is great for the couple who still wants a conventional diamond center stone, but wants to add a splash of green to the colorless look of the diamond with smaller emeralds in the setting. The most common shapes for emerald side stones are emerald, round, pear and trillion, usually with one emerald on each side of the diamond. But you are only limited by your imagination and your budget.
Shoes - Emerald heels are the perfect pop of color under a bride's white dress. These prim, twinned bow tops the almond toe of a classically feminine pump perched atop a slim heel - by Steve Madden.
Cake - Many fashion ideas just reflect the styles from the past. It seems that the royal baroque style also returns into modern fashion. Baroque with its eccentric redundancy and lots of details and with the use of emerald to accent it makes this cake the ultimate wedding trend of 2013!
