Here’s why Pantone’s colour of the year is the perfect 2020 wedding shade

A popular saying dictates that every bride should have among her attire 5 items: “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence in your shoe.” We’d personally avoid the coin-in-the-shoe part as high heels are enough of a stressor on their own, but with Pantone’s colour of the year matching this tradition, you are now free to incorporate the colour beyond the garter hidden under layers of fabric. Here are 7 different ways you can incorporate the shade classic blue into your 2020 wedding for the ultimate fashionable do:

1. The Wedding Cake

You can still stick with a reliable almond or chocolate filling, but a classic blue fondant will give your cake the modern edge.

2. Invitations

Among the easiest to incorporate, a blue-hued design makes for a very cool approach.

Blue flowers, especially real classic blue flowers may prove difficult to find, but there are other ways to mimic the effect.

7. Wedding dress detail

We’re all for sticking with tradition when it comes to the bridal dress, but it certainly won’t add to add a touch of blue in there – embroidery, ribbons or fine details all work!
