WEDDING COLOR TRENDS TO INSPIRE IN 2020
This gender-neutral mint colour is a great pastel shade of green predicted to dominate fashion and interiors. It’s also on our very own list of top 2020 wedding colour schemes. It’s a fresh, oxygenating tone that is aligned with nature and yet goes in harmony with just about everything!
Purist Slate Blue is the sunny and softer side of the familiar blue hue we’ve come to associate with calm and relaxed traits. Blue and all its shades represent meditation, peace, and escapism, which grounds us and yet uplifts us because of its association with spirituality.
Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year, Classic Blue, is the perfect hue to set the mood for a laid-back summer wedding. Punchy Pink, peach, light ivory, and organic green all come together with this beautiful rich sky blue to create a palette that’s reminiscent of the summer sky at dusk. It’s calm, restful, and elegantly simple. If you’re a free-spirited couple looking for a nostalgic or bohemian wedding theme that intertwines colour with a nostalgic feel, then this could be the palette for you.
If you tend to shy away from pink and purple hues, you might want to take another look at Mulberry Purple – a colour that offers a more profound blend of purple and Pink. This is a grown-up glam, coming of age, yet surprisingly soothing colour.
Cantaloupe is a rejuvenating colour that compliments every gender, even if it is associated with being soft and sweet. This colour is known to create a perfect balance between the physical and mental aspects of a person.
Champagne yellow is touted to be the next “millennial pink”. It’s been linked to well-loved brands and psychologically proves it is the most energetic colour due to its light hue – catching the human eye.
Shades of aqua are having a major moment. We saw this trend start to emerge in 2019 as a jewel-toned turquoise, and we’re excited to see subtle and sweet hues paired with other trending colours (hint: sherbet pink) of the year!
The 80s called, they said we could steal the colour pink in 2020! Expect to see a soft version of this colour used in subtle, even unexpected, places this year. Think shoes, small decor accessories, bowties, pattern-play, etc. We can’t wait for more of this one!
Go bold or go home — colour blocking is in, and saffron will surely be used in lots of blocked colour combos in 2020! We can’t wait to see how our brides get creative with this orangey mustard hue.
Oh, you thought we were leaving rust in 2019? Nope! It’s here to stay — and in an even bigger way. Expect the rust trend to take on an element of punch this year. The colour will come to the forefront of design in bold ways.
