7 Ways to Include Pantone’s Colour of the Year, Classic Blue For Your Wedding in 2020
In 2020, bless your wedding with something old, something new, something borrowed and something (Classic) blue.
Pantone recently revealed the colour of the year for 2020 is the shade PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a timeless and enduring blue that is reminiscent of the sky at dusk but not quite as dark and deep as midnight blue. Described as a dependable blue hue that we can always rely on to instill calm, confidence and connection, we can’t think of a shade more fitting than this for a wedding that is timeless and elegant!
We also think Classic Blue is the perfect shade for weddings because it complements most colours and can be used either as the main focal colour or as a base to highlight other colours in your wedding theme. To help you visualise how Pantone’s colour of the year for 2020 will look in your wedding, we show you seven ways you can incorporate Classic Blue for your wedding.

Another great option for brides who want to incorporate the shade without being too flashy is to include the colour in the wedding décor. You can choose to include them into your bridal bouquet by asking your florist to include blue blooms into your wedding flowers, sprucing your bouquet up with a ribbon in a gorgeous blue shade or incorporate the colour into your wedding styling.
