After looking over the spring-summer 2020 fashion shows and studying the latest reports from the Pantone Color Institute, we have highlighted the main colours of this year. You will see them in boutiques, on the streets, in decor, and, of course, at the most fashionable of weddings. We are showcasing all these colourful and expressive shades and will suggest how they can be used in your celebration.
This deep shade of blue has its own original name — PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue. It’s been named the main colour of 2020 by the Color Institute. “We live in a time when everyone needs trust and faith. This confidence, firmness and support are expressed by Classic Blue — a reliable and solid shade that you can always count on,” — this is how Pantone CEO Leatrice Eisman described this shade.
This colour is easy to incorporate into a summer wedding especially if it’s a seaside or beach wedding. Classic Blue reflects the rich shades of sea waves, deep pools or cloudless July skies. The halls are often decorated in this colour: it contrasts beautifully with the snow-white dress of the bride and highlights it favourably.

Fury Scarlet is what the Pantone Color Institute named this shade. In the spring-summer season, designers weren’t afraid to use a bold shade that instantly attracts attention. We saw complete scarlet looks at several shows at once — Chanel, Boss, Balenciaga, Erdem, Louis Vuitton. This was a sign that this red colour will be one of the trendiest colours of the season and of the year.
In the wedding design, this colour is rarely used: it stands out sharply from the classic pastel, delicate range that we see at traditional celebrations. But this is its main strength: one drop of red, even in the form of a cherry in the glasses of guests, will already give your day a modern twist. And the most daring couples aren’t afraid to make this fashionable shade the main one in their design and use it for spectacular lighting.

A slightly duller shade than mandarin peel and more orange than noble mustard. The Pantone Institute named this shade Saffron in honour of a popular spice that gives a beautiful colour to dishes and included it in the top 3 colours of this spring-summer season. The designers support it: we saw similar shades at spring-summer shows by Stella McCartney, Rochas, Bottega Veneta, Valentino.
Traditionally an autumn shade, Saffron will look great in weddings planned for September, October and November. It adds coziness to the room and gives a special semblance to the decor of the tables. In addition, it’s the colour of natural wood, autumn leaves, candles and evening lights, creating a magical atmosphere.
