For this wedding inspiration roundup, we’ve paired Classic Blue (Pantone's Color of The Year for 2020) with shades of burgundy, and light gold.

{inspiration board} Classic Blue & Burgundy

Classic Blue is a comforting color reflective of lakes at dusk, pen ink, and shadows on rolling mountains. Known for its dependable and secure feel, it’s a strong symbolic color choice for weddings and has also been chosen by Pantone as the Color of the Year for 2020.

For this wedding inspiration roundup, we’ve paired the rich tone of Classic Blue with shades of burgundy and light gold for a luxurious palette. The word burgundy comes from the French-made Burgundy wine, which is fitting because burgundy looks elegant when posed with glasses of red. Burgundy is a more serious shade of red that pairs well with large ballrooms and lavish elopements. This color combination will give any wedding a touch of sophistication.
