Welcome to the third part of our 'A to Z' blog guide to Wedding Traditions…
How will you be featuring blue in your Wedding in 2020-2021?
There are plenty of Wedding traditions such the phrase “tying the knot”, rings, a wedding cake, throwing the bouquet and the bride wearing “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue, a sixpence in your shoe”.
Apparently the English custom of brides wearing “something blue” on their wedding day dates back to the 1890s when the blue bridal token was said to symbolise purity, love, and fidelity.
The tradition is enduring and never more “on trend” than in 2020 with the announcement that Pantone’s ‘Colour of the Year 2020’ is… Classic Blue!
Pantone describe 19-4052 Classic Blue as a lighter version of Navy Blue and more muted than Cobalt… presenting it as “a timeless and enduring blue, suggestive of the sky at dusk”.
So if you are planning a wedding this year why not let the new Pantone ‘Colour for the Year 2020’ inspire you to feature Classic Blue in your wedding theme, not only reflecting an ages old Wedding tradition but also ensuring you are “on trend” with the colour that designers and artists will be favouring in 2020-2021?
It can be paired with almost every colour and suit all seasons, from bright mediterranean colours of summer to the deep berry colours of autumn!
Sweetie Graffiti can help ensure you and your Wedding guests are up to date too with a broad range of delicious sweets and chocolates in a range of blue wrappers and with blue print available for personalising other wrapper colours with your messaging.
Treating your guests with Wedding favours at the end of the celebratory meal, later during the celebrations and/or as a departing gift… not forgetting as a unique way to announce an engagement and/or to encourage guests to ‘Save The Date’… is a memorable, fun and special way to ‘surprise and delight’ and thank guests for all their love and support at a special time.
Personalised designs give you the freedom to include names, a date and/or fun messaging on each of your individually wrapper chocolates and sweets, a great way to thrill guests with messages of love and thanks.
Messaging can be serious or humorous, or perhaps a bit of both!
