Pantone calls Flame orange “a gregarious and fun loving” colour, so we came up with some playful ideas to help you celebrate your quirky side using this great colour. Something about this vibrant hue gave us a retro European vibe, so we pulled together an inspiration board that develops this wedding theme. Picture fashion icons like Twiggy in the 60s, with wool A-line trench coats and matching hats and heavy doe-eyed mascara.

With a colour as vibrant as Flame orange, a little will go a long way, so consider small pops of this colour as accents against a more neutral background. For example, the groomsmen could wear retro style skinny ties in orange, while the bridesmaids are in creamy white with an orange sash or bouquet. Italian designers Giuseppe Zanotti and Gucci have some amazing retro-style flame orange suede cut-out sandals that would be a super playful way to add a surprise of colour beneath your gown and stick to a vintage European theme.
Channel the streets of France and its ice cream stands by including orange sherbet in your desserts at the reception. Or go Italian with Sanpellegrino Aranciata-based cocktails. Spanish blood oranges serve the perfect red-orange colour with a flavor that is sweeter and milder than regular naval oranges, so consider using them not just for eating but also utilizing them in your décor, in vases and glass bowls around the reception.
And speaking of décor, there are tons of amazing flowers that can add firey bursts of orange around your event, like Parrot Tulips, Ranunculus, and Dahlias, to name a few.
We hope your imagination runs wild with this fun Pantone flame colour option!
