wedding inspiration board:solar power

Remember our inspiration board from last week that showcased Tangerine Tango, the 2012 Pantone Color of the Year? This week, and in the weeks to come, we'll be showcasing the nine other gorgeous colors from Pantone's Spring 2012 Color Report.

Our color today is Solar Power, a strong, bright yellow. Like Tangerine Tango, this color has a bit of depth that keeps it grounded. It's bright, but rich. I've paired Solar Power with a couple of other new Pantone colors, Cabaret and Rhapsody:

Together, these colors shout "summer", and create a fun palette that's a celebration of the best of what summer has to offer:

Such a fun party! Who wouldn't love to be a guest at this bright, happy wedding?

See some details you love? As always, we've linked to all of our sources at the bottom of this post, and you can also see everything in more detail on our solar power wedding board on Pinterest.

So which do you like better so far? The strong orange of Tangerine Tango, or the cheerful yellow of Solar Power? I don't think I can decide... Good thing I don't have to!
