At the end of each year, Pantone LLC announces its official “color of the year: ” a signature shade that sets the trends in fashion, interior design, and countless other industries for the year to come. In 2019, they announced that this decade would begin with “Classic Blue,” a tranquil and rich shade that the company proclaimed “a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.”
Frankly, this was music to wedding vendors’ ears. Everyone knows that every bride needs her “something blue,” and now, it’s literally the latest fashion! So, how can you bring classic blue into your wedding color palette? Here are a few of my favorite ideas.
Brides have been rocking the flower crown for centuries (literally), but 2020 might see a new kind of flora in the foreground: blueberries! Adding a few cuttings from a blueberry bush and weaving them into your flower crown (or making a crown out of the berry cuttings) is a great way to hang onto that Earth goddess vibe and accessorize with the color of the year.
A Blue Bouquet
Flowers are another great opportunity to add a little blue hue to your wedding day look. While blue flowers aren’t that common (most couples stick to pink and white blossoms), there are so many beautiful options you can choose! Hydrangeas, cornflowers, irises, anemones — these stunning flowers will give your arrangements a beautiful (and trendy) pop of color. Just stay away from dyed blooms like orchids and roses. Not only do they look fake, but they could also stain your wedding gown!
Classic Blue and White China
We’ve all seen it: that vintage blue-and-white patterned china sitting in many a grandmother’s house. It’s quaint, it’s cute… and best of all, it’s classic blue! If you’re having a small wedding (or if you and your caterer have access to enough plates for your whole party), adding this classic china to your tablescape can be a fun way to give your reception an elegant, yet homey touch.
