From decor to fashion and even the bridal makeup, we've listed out all the features aka Pantone shade in wedding that can be utilised in your wedding in this shade of colour.

So, say goodbye to last year's favourite Living Coral and say hello ladies to our favorite color of the year, Classic Blue!  

How To Use The Pantone Colour of The Year 2020 (Classic Blue) in Your Wedding! 

#1 Decor

We've already told you how Classic Blue is going to be one of the trending colours in wedding decor in 2020. And there's no doubt that this regal colour is perfect for both day and night-time functions. You can easily incorporate this colour in either backgrounds and tents or use them to embellish your seating areas (as cushions, table runners, fabrics & curtains). In fact, the versatility of this colour allows you to use it either in a formal setting or a more casual and fun quirky setup. Our favourite way of using Classic Blue in wedding decor would be in the form of large tassels and hanging floral ceiling decor that is sure to add a flare of this colour to any occasion. 

#2 Invites

Whether you like them regal and OTT or simple yet quirky, wedding invites are a quintessential part of any wedding. But we assure you that a classic blue invite is the perfect and not so basic 'shaadi ka card'. For all the couples planning to have a sumptuous wedding, a classic blue coloured invite (or invitation box) will not only seem more welcoming but is also a great way to symbolise your upcoming union. We suggest you get water-coloured invites with a white background so that the shade of blue truly shines in its full glory. Or if you're looking for something heavier, then go in for a Classic Blue invitation box embellished with either golden or silver work. Trust us, a Classic Blue invite will never disappoint!

#3 Bridal Outfits

Wondering how to use Pantone shade in wedding? Classic Blue is this year's colour and even the most famous wedding designers have embraced it. This colour has poppoed up here and there in weddings before, with even gorgeous brides donning on blue lehengas for their wedding festivites. We predict that this year, elements of Classic Blue will not only showcase themselves in sangeet and mehendi outfits, but also in wedding lehengas.


When it comes to bridal lehengas, the ways in which you can style in some Classic Blue are endless. You can either choose to drape a beautiful sheer dupatta in Classic Blue with your dull gold wedding lehenga, or go full extravagant and wear an entirely Classic Blue lehenga with silver or golden embroidery. And if you're not in the mood for heavily embellished works, then a funky, off beat short lehenga is always a go to option!

Classic Blue sarees are as regal as it gets. If you're looking for a more subtle option, then choose a simpler silk saree with motifs embroidered or painted on it. But if you're looking to glam it up then go in for a shimmery Classic Blue saree that will ensure that all eyes are on you!


Whether it's an anarkali or a salwar kameez, bridal suits will never out of fashion. They make excellent outfit options for functions like sangeet, reception and mehendi parties. In fact, Classic Blue suits look so breezy and are always so easy to manage, that you'll want to add classic blue suits to your ensemble for sure!

#4 Bridal Jewellery

We know what you're thinking, brides! A Classic Blue in Kundan and Polki jewellery? Impossible! However, that's totally the opposite. Most bridal jewellery made from kundan or polki come stone work at the ends. You can choose to wear a set that has elements of Classic Blue in them or jewellery like meenakari, gemstones, kundan and polki can be found with a touch of this shade of blue. And, if you cannot find a ready-made set, then there is always the option to customise it as it will make you stand out as a bride and win hearts everywhere with this offbeat choice! Also, whether you're looking for a mathapatti, bridal choker, raani haar or earrings we got you covered girl!

Use of Pantone shade in wedding footwear is neither hard to find, nor that difficult to pull off. This shade of blue is probably one of the first colours of heels a girl purchases.

You can either choose to style yourself in some amazingly bedazzled pumps or go in for some comfortable yet designer juttis.
