For the last 20 years, the color technology experts at PANTONE® have crowned a color as their flagship "Color of the Year". To ring in the new decade, they have selected Classic Blue as the face of 2020.

PANTONE® tells us that “(Classic Blue)... highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.”

Unlike last year’s Living Coral, Classic Blue is less of an accent color; it demands to be the center of attention. This makes it a little more difficult to pair with other colors than previous Pantone selections, but it’s a solid choice nonetheless! It is “classic”, after all.

To make finding your “something blue” easy, we’ve hand-picked our favorite Classic Blue wedding images and ideas. Keep reading for inspiration on wedding bouquets, bridesmaids dresses, stationary, wedding cakes and of course, rings. Pin your favorites on your Wedding Board on Pinterest!
