Colour of the Year: Pantone 19-4052 Classic Blue
An elegant hue to bring class to your wedding.
The colour of the year for 2020 is none other than Classic Blue, a colour filled with zeitgeist and dependability, sure to make your wedding stand out from the crowd. Pantone describes Classic Blue as, “A timeless and enduring blue hue… Classic Blue is elegant in its simplicity.” Whether you are a person who values simplicity, or likes to make a statement, Classic Blue is the wedding trend to embrace in 2020.
A Blue Hue
As a bride, one of the most important aspects of the day is the wedding dress. If you fancy sticking to a more traditional, classic wedding dress, but incorporating Classic Blue in a modern way, you could give a dip dye dress a try. Ombre or dip dye dresses are becoming much more fashionable for brides who want to be seen, but still retain an air of elegance and luxury, with brands such as Oscar de la Renta and Lucy Can’t Dance leading the way in this arena.
Something Old, New, Borrowed and… BLUE!
Classic Blue is made to be a part of weddings after all, the tradition says something blue is a must have, right?
One of my favourite ways to include a splash of colour in a wedding; the bride’s shoes. If a statement dress isn’t for you, but you’ve fallen for the Classic Blue colour as much as I have, then why not buy some stunning Classic Blue wedding shoes. This is the perfect way to incorporate a luxury feel into your big day.
Beautiful Blue Bouquets
There are so many choices out there for Classic Blue flowers to add into your bouquet. Whether you are going for a traditional bouquet, or something more modern, Classic Blue is a great enhancement for any bouquet. Believe it or not, a current popular choice for both bridal bouquets and buttonholes are corn flowers. With wildflower bouquets growing in popularity, corn flowers are a great way to add a touch of Classic Blue to your day. If corn flowers aren’t your thing, you could always give hyacinths, roses or even blueberries a try.
Dusky Blue Decor
Classic Blue is simple to incorporate as part of your table decor. One option could be to add a Classic Blue table cloth or napkins to your aesthetic. If you want something a little different, try some Classic Blue uplighting or fairy lights. A fantastic trend at the moment is coloured vases as centrepieces. A little note here, Classic Blue vases look amazing filled with some simple white flowers like baby’s breath (gypsophila). Your elegant Classic Blue theme can easily be extended to all aspects of wedding decor, including wedding invitations. Classic Blue can be used as either a background, or as an accent colour to make your invites luxurious yet traditional.
Make the Blue Work for You
Classic Blue has so much potential for weddings in 2020. This on-trend colour can be used in any way you wish within your special day. Ask your wedding planner for other ways to incorporate this incredible, timeless colour into your big day. You will not be disappointed.
