How to Use Classic Blue in Your Wedding Colour Scheme: Pantone Colour of The Year 2020

I will not lie to you dear reader... I was a little underwhelmed when the Pantone Colour for 2020 was revealed.

Pantone: "And we are proud to announce that the 2020 Colour of the Year is..."

* drumroll*


Everyone: *blinks*

The anticlimax was real my friend. I was so extremely uninspired by it. AND YET, this is the first year that I have actually felt compelled to write a blog about how to use the Pantone colour of the year in your colour scheme.


Well for one, I'm clearly running out of ideas lol. Hit me up on Instagram @nulyweds with all your questions and I'll make some blogs about it.

But really I wanted to challenge myself on how to use such a thoroughly unremarkable colour and make it somewhat remarkable.

So without further ado, here is what I managed to come up with.

Main colour - Cranberry red

Complementary colour - Violet

Top note - Gold

Undertone - Classic Blue

This colour scheme is super elegant and juicy with rich jewel tones for a gothic look. Perfect for Autumnal weddings or just those who are fans of a slightly gothic look without going all black.

Main colour - Baby blue

Complementary colour - Turquoise

Top note - Gold

Undertone - Classic Blue

This wedding colour scheme is very fresh with cleansing sea greens and gold lettering. You could do this colour scheme with silvers instead of golds but I like the warmth of the yellow gold here. For a beach or seaview wedding, this could be rather spectacular,

Main colour - Ivory, lilac or blush

Complementary colour - Coral

Top note - Gold

Undertone - Classic Blue

This colour scheme is more modern and funky which is probably why I enjoy it so much!

Take that blue and clash it with orange to have some popping floral pieces that will wow your guests. If you're a bubbly couple but want a bit of modern refinement to your day, this could be a fun scheme for you!

That's it for this week. Let me know on Instagram @nulyweds which is your favourite
