Pantone’s 2020 color of the year is “Classic Blue,” a pleasing, soothing, and easy-to-incorporate color for nearly any occasion. Choosing colors for your wedding is an exciting part of the planning process, and once you know which colors you’ll use, you can begin selecting which other details, from linens and flowers to dresses and bowties, can be in a different color. While it’s certainly important to choose colors that are meaningful to you and your partner, you can also use your color palette as a sign of the times, to reflect the on-trend hues of the year you get married. This year, the 2020 color of the year, according to the Pantone Color Institute, is Classic Blue. The design experts at Marco Island Weddings are excited to share this color trend with you, as well as ways you can include it in your 2020 wedding.
Pantone’s Color of the Year: Classic Blue
Chosen for its timeless and enduring qualities, Classic Blue will represent the year 2020 in fashion, film, art, and of course, weddings. This color inspires a sense of calm and restfulness but also delivers a sense of peace and tranquility. What a beautiful ambiance to surround you and your partner as you begin your life together! Reflecting the natural hue of the night sky at dusk, Classic Blue highlights our desire for stability and dependability. It’s also associated with the return of another day, giving hopeful reassurance of a lasting future.
Reasons to Choose Classic Blue for Weddings
We all know there’s something important about including a touch of blue in weddings, along with new, old and borrowed items, but where did this tradition begin? Dating back to Old English times, the “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” rhyme refers to the importance of a connection to the past, optimism for the future, the happiness of friendship, and the purity and fidelity of your love. This year, instead of opting for a touch of blue discreetly tucked away, go all out and let this gorgeous color define your wedding day in deep, bold ways.
Ways to Use Classic Blue in Your Wedding
There are so many great ways to accent your wedding with Classic Blue, or even to give this shade center stage. Blue flowers like hydrangea, thistle, iris, and delphinium make beautiful bouquets on their own or great accents to other flowers in your arrangements. Give a swatch of Classic Blue to your bridesmaids and let them choose any dress they like in this color.
Fill your reception tables with blue linens, candles, or even stemware. You can even dress your groom and his men in blue suits for a fresh update to the classic tuxedo. The possibilities are endless when you choose to feature Classic Blue in your special day’s color palette.
No matter how you choose to design your wedding, your color choices will drive many of your other decisions. So be sure you’re comfortable with your color palette before moving forward.
