Pantone’s Color of the Year: Classic Blue
In an effort to reflect the current desire for connection and stability, Pantone has chosen Classic Blue as our 2020 on-trend color of the year. Inspired by the color seen in the early evening sky, this color exemplifies tranquility and peace to the human spirit. What a beautiful way to begin a life together! As we search for dependable and stable foundations to build a future on, Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation that encourages trust and faith.
Reasons to Choose Classic Blue for Weddings
As the saying goes, you’ll want to choose “something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue” to bring good luck for your wedding day. But how did these ideas begin? This Old English rhyme listed these items because something old connects you to the past while something new speaks to the optimism of the future. Something borrowed brings happiness, and something blue represents purity, love, and fidelity. This season, instead of finding a small bit of blue to tuck away somewhere, put it on display with Classic Blue in your wedding and give a deep, meaningful nod to tradition in a new way.
Ways to Use Classic Blue in Your Wedding
There are so many great ways to accent your wedding with Classic Blue, or even to give this shade center stage. Blue flowers like hydrangea, thistle, iris, and delphinium make beautiful bouquets on their own or great accents to other flowers in your arrangements. Give a swatch of Classic Blue to your bridesmaids and let them choose any dress they like in this color. Fill your reception tables with blue linens, candles, or even stemware. You can even dress your groom and his men in blue suits for a fresh update to the classic tuxedo. The possibilities are endless when you choose to feature Classic Blue in your special day’s color palette.
The colors you choose for your wedding will leave a lasting imprint of the day you began your life together.
