How to incorporate 2020 Pantone’s Color of classic blue for your wedding
When Pantone announced classic blue for 2020 wedding color，it describes the hue—which is darker than sky blue but lighter than midnight blue. Classic blue works well with many different shades, including coral, burgundy, gold and grey. It’s subtle yet elegant and it can be incorporated into every detail, from groom’s attire to wedding table décor or bridesmaid dresses, classic blue can be everywhere as long as you really put our heart into it. So, get your ‘something blue’ sorted with help from our suggestions on how to utilise Classic Blue at your 2020 wedding…
1. Engagement ring or a Pretty Ring Box
Not engaged yet? Or looking for wedding day statement jewelry? A blue gemstone ring, whether it’s a sapphire, diamond, or aquamarine, does not disappoint.
2. Have a Statement Cake
Whether you want a pop of colour or to go all out, Classic Blue works beautifully with wedding cakes! Adorned coloured flowers, ombré icing, watercolour artwork or even a crystal geode, get creative with how this colour influences your wedding cake!
3. Escort Card Table
For a more romantic interpretation on Classic Blue, consider using it in a watercolor wash as this couple did for their escort card display.
Delphiniums, muscari, corn flowers, forget-me-nots and darker-hued hydrangeas are a few glorious blooms perfect for a Classic Blue wedding. Or if you don’t want to go all in on blue flowers, you could simply add a few touches, like blue ribbon or even a sprig of thistles to your bouquet or buttonholes as a nod to your colour theme.
5. Accessorize the Little Ones
If you’re having flower girls, consider adding pops of blue with their accessories.
6. Bridesmaid Dresses
You can always ask your wedding party to wear the same dress in Classic Blue. But if you’re looking for a cohesive yet mismatched look, we suggest sharing the Classic Blue swatch (that’s what it’s here for, right!?) with your bridesmaids and letting them choose any style they please.

10. Set the Table
When setting a table with such a bold color, it’s important to consider balance and place the color accordingly. The blue works because it’s placed strategically at different heights—the plate, the goblets, and, finally, the candelabra—so it doesn’t overwhelm the eye at once.
This is a color about relaxation, meaning it fits especially well in lounge areas that are all about comfort.
12.Decorate the Altar
When designing the focal point of your ceremony, it’s important to make an impression but not take away from what’s most important: the two of you! We love the look of a greenery altar with an asymmetrical floral touch for this reason.
13.Create a Mood—Late-Night!
As we all know a vibrant hue can change any room from romantic to disco-ready, it can mention for the blue light—as long as it’s after the cake cutting and, possibly, includes some heart-shaped neon lights in the background.
