Pantone Colour of the Year 2020

We have dived into the first month of 2020 and the most talked about colour of the year is officially a Classic Blue which is a darker shade that is beautifully timeless and enduring hue in its simplicity, which actually resembles the colour of the sky at dusk. This beautiful shade of blue is in between darker than sky blue, however it is also lighter than midnight blue. Pantone states that they believe that "We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by PANTONE-19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on." This particular shade of blue is very classic, elegant, and beautiful as a colour scheme or theme to incorporate at your wedding from invitations to bridesmaid dresses to bouquet arrangements to table linen, etc.

Here are some ways you could incorporate the Classic Blue into your wedding day!

1. WEDDING INVITATIONS & SAVE THE DATE CARDS!

Your wedding invitations and/or save the date cards are primarily one of the most important aspects of planning your wedding because it gives your guests an idea and/or first impressions of what your big day is going to be like. The colour scheme and theme that you choose to go with also gives your guests a feel of you and your significant others' personalities and aura.Whether if you are planning a small simple gathering or a big extravagant party for your wedding, if you're aiming for a classic and elegant feel, this Classic Blue shade would be the perfect colour scheme for your special day!

2. SIGNAGES LEADING THE WAY!

Having signages at your wedding from the ceremony to reception are very useful and can easily help your guests find their way at your wedding, especially when there are multiple functions happening at the same venue. If choosing to go with this colour scheme, incorporating this shade of blue on your signages can help guests identify where your wedding is taking place in the venue. You could design your signs with a blue background and different coloured text that would go well with the background, or you could go the opposite way and do a neutral coloured background with the text and designs in blue. The best colours that would accent well with this shade of blue are gold, silver/grey, white, yellow, and wine red.

3. SPICE UP YOUR TABLE LINEN

Having this shade of blue for your table linen makes your tables look very elegant and classy, and also makes your tables pop out a little more rather than having the typically boring white linen seen at most weddings. Not every single thing at your wedding has to be covered in blue because you really do not want to over do it, however having the classic blue as your primary background and then adding different accent colours to go with the theme such as gold, silver/grey or white will give your theme a very elegant vibe.

4. THE BOUQUET & BOUTONNIERE

When incorporating this shade of blue into your bouquet, this would definitely pop out especially when wearing a white or ivory wedding gown. Adding white flowers and green in the mix gives your bouquet a classy and elegant feel. If dressing your bridesmaids in blue dresses, white bouquets with a tiny bit of blue in the mix would make their dresses pop out a little more. As for the groomsmen, if wearing a boutonniere a simple white flower with a touch of blue would go very well with their tux or suits.

5. DRESSING UP THE BRIDE'S TRIBE & GROOM'S CREW

Having your bridesmaids wear this shade of blue will make them look classy and elegant in longer dresses and your gals will definitely make you stand out as the bride as they are basically your backdrop of your wedding day.

With today's generation, mix and match dresses or doing different shades of a colour is very trending and totally modern! A lot of brides love having their entourage stand out and want their girls to feel comfortable rock'n their own style in different dresses. Another trend happening is that some bridal parties ditch the dresses and are rock'n the jumpsuits instead. A lot of weddings today are all about comfort and being different which makes them very unique.

As for the guys, your groom can have them dress in a navy blue tux or suit which makes them look classy and elegant and will make them stand out as the groom's backdrop instead of having them dressed in the typical black tux that has been seen before multiple times in weddings.

6. DECORATING THE CAKE

When it comes to cakes, a lot of marble cakes are trending and are magnificent to look at to the point where you don't even want to cut the cake because it's too beautiful to eat! Once again, when it comes to blue colour schemes, gold and white accents to the blue give it a beautiful and elegant touch.

7. ESCORT CARDS

Having your escort cards with your guests' names on geodes are very trendy and unique! These beautiful blue geodes not only would be cool to have as escort cards but can also be wedding favours for your guests to take home with them which is a 2-in-1 deal right there! Your guests will definitely love to have these as a keepsake from your special day.

8. LAST, BUT OBVIOUSLY NOT LEAST ... YOUR SOMETHING BLUE!

"Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something BLUE!" is a popular wedding tradition that is often being said. The meaning behind "Something Blue" is basically the colour blue stands for love, purity, and fidelity which are the three key qualities for a solid marriage. Old traditions for Something Blue is normally a blue garter worn underneath the bride's white dress.
