Pantone Colour of the Year 2020: Classic Blue

Christmas has been and gone, the New Year has been rung in, many retailers are now eargerly upping their marketing game with talks of valentines and Easter!

Weddings are much the same as this…. following trends and festivals and one which will heavily influence the wedding trends of 2020 and beyond is Pantone’s Colour of the Year.

Once released it always causes a frenzy between wedding stylists and planners as they take in the new tone(s) and start to include them in future designs and styling.

So here’s the definitive guide to Pantone Colour of the Year 2020: Classic Blue.

Classic Blue colour is described by Pantone as “a reassuring presence instilling calm, confidence and connection”.

Now I’ll be the first to admit that Blue is not of my favourite colours; unless it’s well cut and tailored denim, but how do you incorporate this colour into your design?

Personally I would use this years shade to complement your theme via a pop of colour like this shot of bright blue glassware on the table that has been styled by Florence and Vera Events. Florals courtesy of Camomile & Cornflower.

Or how about a gorgeous display featuring these bright blue grape hyacinths? (Super scrummy cocktail created by Giddy Up mobile bar)

One colour combo I am particularly looking forward to seeing is Classic Blue alongside last years shade Living Coral, now wouldn’t that be a wedding look! What do you think?

For now I’ll be keeping an eye on how wedding stylists will be utilising Classic Blue in their mood boards and styling and eagerly await the first styled shoots of the year to showcase its wedding potential.

Happy Planning
