Pantone Classic Blue Color of the Year 2020

Pantone Classic Blue 2020 | Every year Pantone chooses a Color of the Year.  The color for 2020 is Classic Blue.

Blue is not a totally new color for me in terms of weddings.  Blue is a favorite color for many people in general, and it has always made an appearance every year at some events. This year, however, it will be BIG.  So here are some ways for you to incorporate Pantone Classic Blue into your big day.

Engagement Rings–start the whole process in the blue from the very beginning with a blue gem like a sapphire or aquamarine.

Wedding Dresses:  Your Wedding dress need not be white!  You can use Classic Blue as the color of your entire dress, as a print, or just an accent.

Reception Decor is often a great place to incorporate color:

Menswear:  Let’s not forget about the Men.  Nothing looks sharper than a beautifully tailored navy suit or jacket.

A lighter blue looks and photographs great too!

Floral accents:  Your florist can suggest flowers that will enhance the blue theme.
