Last week Pantone, released the new colour for 2020 and it is Classic Blue! Traditionally when getting married having something blue has been the norm as part of the items to be included in your wedding.
Personally I love Blue and was very happy to see that Pantone have also noticed how the colour is coming back into trend from homeware, weddings and fashion. As a wedding planner, I have the privilege of working with various colours to create the perfect wedding and Classic Blue is one of those colours that will have a lot of variations and will transcend to all wedding styles. Over the years, I have worked on weddings and events that have included Blue and I am looking forward to see what 2020 will bring for this colour.
To get you started, I have created 5 ways to include the Pantone Colour of the 2020 into your wedding:
Traditionally your wedding shoes, have been the classic white or ivory depending on your wedding dress colour. However recently, brides have become more adventurous and I am one of those brides that decided to change the norm and get coloured wedding shoes.
Blue Brides Bag
If your dress does not have any pockets, then the bride’s bag will help you keep all your toiletries in one place. The trend of the bride’s bag is on the rise and I do not foresee this trend going anytime soon. This beautiful blue bag is a perfect fit for your lipstick, perfume and blotting pads.
Blue Wedding table decor
Why not incorporate the different hues of blue into your wedding theme? This colour can be used as an accent colour or the main colour theme for any wedding. This can be in the form of table cloths, glassware or cutlery.
Blue Wedding Cake
Gone are the days of white or cream cakes, now you can be as adventurous as possible by using different colours and textures to personalise and create your wedding cake. Blue coloured cakes are slowly becoming a trend as your Something Blue and these been conversation starters with your guests. Take a look at this lovely cake by La Belle Cake Company, created on our recent collaboration.
Blue Wedding Flowers
Blue wedding flowers will definitely add some colour and texture to your wedding bouquet or by adding a flower chandelier. Depending on your wedding season some of the flowers that grow into different hues of blue are:
Hydrangeas grow in beautiful blue shades.
Blue grape hyacinth
Blue is such a statement colour that you can personalise to suit your wedding theme in any way and I cannot wait to work with this colour in our 2020 weddings.
