Drumroll, Please: Pantone's 2020 Color of the Year Is...
Jan 11, 2020 | By: Brian Anthony Photography
It's official: last month, Pantone announced its Color of the Year for 2020, and I couldn't be more excited. This year's top pick? PANTONE 19-4052, also known as Classic Blue! After selecting these honors for more vibrant and striking shades like Living Coral & Ultra Violet in previous years, this year's selection shows a step back into the familiar - and it's mostly because of its classic elegance.
“We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
Looking for a few ways to incorporate this timeless, tranquil hue into your wedding day? Here are a few ideas:
Consider your Wedding Stationary
Using color for your invitations is a great way to give your guests a sneak peek into your wedding day decor.
Statement Shoes or Attire Accents
This year, incorporating your "something blue" just got easier! Select an amazing pair of shoes, a perfectly folded pocket square, or include it as a sash for your wedding party in this classic color.
Embrace a Blue Suit
Totally on trend and gorgeous for photographs, a well fitted blue suit is a great way to incorporate this classy color (plus, it goes great with other colors, too!)
Don't Shy Away from Blue Flowers!
Blue flowers can be tough, because it isn't exactly a common color - but there are plenty of great options available! Hydrangeas, cornflowers, delphinium, and hyacinths are a few, but definitely ask your floral designer for more ideas and to figure our what is seasonally appropriate.
Set Up a Lounge Space for Your Reception
With tons of great rental providers, setting up a special lounge space for your wedding day has never been easier, and it can add a great opportunity to incorporate a touch of color and textures that you may not have previously thought to incorporate!
Create an Amazing Tablescape!
Don't shy away from dark linens if that suits your wedding day look, or instead opt to incorporate classic blue accents in your tabletop decor!
How About a Statement Cake?
Delicious, beautiful, and adds to the decor - what more could you ask for?
