6 Ways to Include Classic Blue in Your Destination Wedding & Honeymoon

Pantone’s color of 2020 is…drumroll, please…classic blue! A hue elegant and simple – fashion companies everywhere have introduced products dawning the color. Naturally, what the fashion industry does almost always affects popular styles, themes and colors of weddings. So, if you are considering incorporating classic blue into your destination wedding, today is your day! From the small details to the main components we’ll tell you how best to include classic blue in your event away according to your preferences.

Invitations are a great way to introduce the theme to your guests. Consider colorizing the font to classic blue or add a little touch on the inside of the envelope. The possibilities of incorporating the color in stationery are truly endless.

2. Groom’s Suit

Want to be crazy about your sharp dressed man? Replace the normal grey or black suit for a classic blue color. Perfect for outdoor weddings, your guy and his best mates will pop out amongst the outstanding colors of the natural backdrop.

3. Bridesmaid’s Outfits

A phrase you rarely hear, if ever, is “oh, I don’t look good in blue.” Hopefully, this is true for your girls. From our experience, they’ll likely love you for choosing this classic blue color for their gowns! In fact, Azazie offers the perfect stunning blue option made of light-weight Chiffon. Azazie describes their design saying, “The gown’s surplice bodice features sheer long sleeves and covered button detail at the cuffs. An elasticized waist gives emphasis to the flowing maxi skirt, which includes a front side slit.” We think it’s safe to say your bridesmaids will be looking like goddesses in this color.

4. Welcome Gifts

Kahina Giving Beauty Essaouira Perfume Oil ($78)

This blue bottled perfume makes the perfect welcome gift for bridesmaids and/or mothers. With notes of rose, sandalwood, herbaceous geranium and lavender – all accented by a bright note of petitgrain, this scent is a great gift for your girls to wear on the big day. This grounding scent will bring you closer to the connectivity your guests are craving this year!

Skandinavisk Hav Collection ($13 to $88)

Scandinavian for sea, HAV offers an impression of the nordic coastline where cold seas meet scents of rugosa rose and hawthorne from the shore. Guests can enjoy this collection as a hotel room fragrance, or add to their body care routine for soft, delicately scented skin. Imagine walking down the aisle past all the lovely smelling folks… heavenly! This collection is available at CieLuxe.com.

5. Tablescapes

The simplicity and elegance of this year’s color looks stunning against white linens and gold details like pictured above. Like stationery, the opportunity for color and creative design in tablescapes is endless. So whether you decide to go for some classic blue florals or antique British breakfast plates with intricate blue patterns – you’re sure to feel like royalty surrounded in this color.

6. Honeymoon In Blue

Now that the wedding festivities have ended, your feet are crying to be free of heels. Girl, throw on some cute blue flats and strut to the airport gate with your new spouse! Perhaps these Farra Pointed Toe Flats will suit your fancy.

Surrounded by nature’s most beautiful display of classic blue, open ocean, it only seems natural to carry the color from the wedding to your tropical honeymoon. We suggest giving Heidi Klein’s 2020 swim collection a try (which launches March 2020). Specifically, the MALTA style which features our beloved 2020 color of the year! The fabric of the bikinis is oh-so-soft and strong, and the lightweight cover-ups are adorable enough to wear to brunch on the beach with your boo.

Make sure to pack a sexy outfit for a night on the town or for a fine dining experience as newlyweds. Not much is sexier than silk. Consider dawning a Lori Cut Out Midi Dress in Stretch Silk Satin with Adjustable Slittasteful from Ladaire.

From sending out invitations to relaxing on your honeymoon and everything in between, you can bring this year’s classic blue with you!
