No surprises peach weddings can be seen at every church, chapel and civil service this year. Why? Because Pantone declared peach fuzz it’s designated colour of the year for 2024. And their annual announcement always makes waves in the wedding world.

In fact, it’s almost as if Pantone had peach weddings in mind when they plumped for this year’s pretty pastel.

This is the description Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute Leatrice Eiseman gave when asked What is PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz?:

“In seeking a hue that echoes our innate yearning for closeness and connection, we chose a colour radiant with warmth and modern elegance. A shade that resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless.”

But there’s just one small catch…

Peach weddings are more than vaguely reminiscent of overblown ‘80s weddings, where substance exceeded style. Think full-on meringues, minus the Princess Di allure!

The good news is brides and grooms to be are doing things differently in the 21st century. And this soft, velvety shade offers endless scope to create unique and memorable wedding environments, whether you’re aiming for shabby chic or timeless elegance.

Let’s explore how you can infuse your big day with this deliciously delicate shade.

Peach fuzz is equally gorgeously for formal and traditional affairs. It’s simply a case of using the same breathtaking shade in different ways, without compromising on spellbinding impact. For example:

  • The crisp, clean look of silver tone Signature cutlery pairs perfectly with this setting.
  • Incorporate the radiant tones of peach, butterscotch and cream in minimalist centerpieces of roses, carnations, freesias, lilies, chrysanthemums, fresh herbs and foliage, for an understated yet stunning look.
