Something Borrowed, Something Blue


As 2019 draws to a close, we’re so excited to see what trends are going flourish in 2020. Pantone announced their Colour of the Year, and we’re obsessed! It’s Pantone 19-4052, a fabulous blue!

How perfect is this for brides, it’s a great way to explore colour, get creative as well as nodding to the traditional wedding saying ‘something borrowed, something blue.’

Pantone pretty much decides what the next colour trends will be for each year. Trained personnel take into account colours that have been getting more attention in the fashion field and from there, they observe films, effects, upcoming technology and the like. You may not know it, but they practically decide your colour scheme for your wedding a year before the event!

The classic blue combination will last all the way into 2020, so not matter what month your have planned your wedding for, there will be something you can draw inspiration from!

We have put together a complete mood-board for to cover everything from accessories, décor, stationery and suiting!

It All Starts Off With A Ring

Blue Sapphire Ring from Marrow Fine | Mrs Ring Box

If your partner has done their research, they might have already selected a sparkly sapphire engagement ring. But if not, don’t worry! We all love a vintage ring box, especially in a pre-ceremony flat-lay.

Statement Shoes

Bow Detail Courts from Ted Baker | Primrose Navy Heels from Boden

Take your feet to new heights with a glamorous pair of heels!

50 Shade Of Blue

Glencloy Navy Wedding Suit from Red Groomswear | Harris Navy Suit from Freddie Hatchet

Invest in a great fitting blue suit for your wedding and not only will it never go out of style, but you’ll feel confident every time you wear it!

Bespoke Backdrops


When designing the focal point of your ceremony, it’s important to remember what’s most important: the two of you! Incorporate fresh green foliage with blossoming buds of blue.


Style Me Pretty

Forget a classic white tablecloth and go for classic blue instead! When setting a table with such a bold colour, it’s important to consider balance and place the colour accordingly. To keep everything fresh, add romantic candles, neutral plates, woven touches and metallic notes.

Taste The Rainbow

Classic-Blue-Wedding-Cake-trend |

Who doesn’t love a wedding cake, especially with so many incredible flavours around these days. You can go bold with a dramatic navy cake, or keep things subtle with fleckles of blue shades.

Navy Notes

Set the scene for your big day with an impactful invitation! Classic Blue is a deep enough hue that you can use it for either the text or background on your paper suite.

Blue Bridesmaids

Lace Detail Maxi Bridesmaid Dress from ASOS | Cecilia from TH & TH

Arguably the easiest way to incorporate colour into your day, this looks great with a handful or bunch of bridesmaids. We particularly love the idea of sharing the Pantone shade and letting bridesmaids pick their own individual dress, this can help break pictures up a bit, and adds a personal touch to everyones look.
