Once you set your wedding date, the next big step in the planning process is choosing the colors for your big day. After all, the hues you select will impact everything from the invites and flowers to the decor and bridal party attire. From bold and bright to natural and neutral, each year always brings in a fresh crop of color combos that can help your wedding stand out. Here are seven that will be big in 2020.

Blue Tux

1. Classic Blue & Ivory

The 2020 Pantone Color of the Year is Classic Blue, which can stand on its own as a rich contrast to a simple white and greenery-inspired spring wedding, says Maryam Shariat, Founder at


2. Blush & Grey
"It’s one of the most romantic color combinations for a wedding, which looks outstanding no matter what season you are getting married," says Lesly White of The Best Wedding Dresses Blog. She adds that brides might also want to opt for pastel pink instead of blush.

Color Swatches

3. Emerald Green, Fuchsia & Gold

Risa Weaver-Enion of Risa James Events expects to see 1990s color elements become popular because many of this year’s couples grew up in that decade. She especially likes emerald green and fuchsia paired with gold, as well as coral with bronze, and violet with silver.

Bold Floral

4. Orange & Pink

As couples choose to go bolder, Sarah Carroll of Small Shindigs says that orange is becoming more popular, paired with pinks and yellows.


5. Deep Burgundy & Blush

"Table settings in soft neutrals with accent colors derived from food and nature are always a popular combination," explains Amber Dunford, lead designer at Overstock. "For example, if you want to embrace the blush pinks for your wedding day, you should see a wide range of pinks from deeply saturated pink/ burgundy to a watery pale pink."



6. Ocean Blue & Coral

Ocean blues and light hues such as coral will take the spotlight at weddings in 2020, reveals Shelley Grieshop at Totally Promotional

7. Blue & Metallics

Another way to incorporate Classic Blue into your wedding is by pairing it with metallics such as gold and silver. Want to go bolder? Mix the blue in with some purple, says Jumi Aluko of Dunni Weddings
