Incorporating the Pantone Colour of the Year into Your Wedding

Each year, the Pantone Color Institute selects a Colour of the Year that influences trends across various industries, including fashion and design and often reflects current cultural and design trends. The chosen colour serves as a source of inspiration for many, especially brides planning their weddings.

In this blog post, we'll explore creative ways brides can seamlessly incorporate ‘Peach Fuzz’, the Pantone Colour of the Year for 2024, into their wedding, adding a touch of contemporary elegance to their special day. Selected because of its cozy and comforting hue that nurtures compassion and heartfelt kindness, the sentiment is ideal for a wedding colour palette that strives to evoke a warm, loving feel. 

"In seeking a hue that echoes our innate yearning for closeness and connection, we chose a color radiant with warmth and modern elegance. A shade that resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless," Pantone Color Institute executive director Leatrice Eiseman shares of the new colour selection for this year.

Especially fitting for elegant spring and summer weddings, there are a number of ways to utilize this soft, romantic tone throughout your ceremony and reception.

Wedding Attire

Bridal gowns are no longer only available in white. There is now a huge choice of different shades, including some peach shades from some designers, or opt for a dress that incorporates the hue in subtle details like embroidery, sashes, or accessories.

Historically peach carried a bad reputation as a bridesmaid faux pas. But having been chosen as the Colour of the Year signifies a huge U-turn for the shade. Choosing Peach Fuzz as the main bridal party colour may be a bold choice for some, so opting for a bridesmaid colour that complements so it can be incorporated elsewhere, will tie the entire wedding look together.


Floral Arrangements

Infuse your wedding flowers with the chosen Pantone colour. Roses, dahlias, and peonies all come in the peach shade, and would look so pretty against your ivory wedding dress backdrop. If none of these florals are in season, or are coming up out of your budget, alternatively, select blooms that naturally complement the hue so you can use it elsewhere, such as adding Peach Fuzz coloured ribbons or wraps to your bouquets and boutonnieres.

Table Decor

This is the easiest way to add the Pantone favourite into your wedding. Elevate your reception with on-theme table décor, from tablecloths and napkins to centrepieces and place settings. Table favours can again be an simple way to combine Peach Fuzz, think about coloured macarons, sweet treats, dyed candles or small trinket bags.  Incorporate the Pantone colour in subtle and elegant ways to give a nod to the trend, or you can mix with metallic accents like gold or silver give for a touch of sophistication.


Invitations and Stationery

If you plan to use Peach Fuzz as one of your colour tones within your wedding, set the tone from the beginning by incorporating the Pantone Colour of the Year into your invitations and stationery. From save-the-dates to place cards, this creates a cohesive visual theme that guests will notice and appreciate. Plus, it’ll make you look completely on trend!

Wedding cakes are an easy way to include a colour to your wedding day, as most bakers are able to add any chosen colour to a design. Design a wedding cake that showcases the tone, whether it’s through fondant, frosting or edible flowers, your cake can be a stunning focal point that ties your colour scheme together.


Incorporating the Pantone Colour of the Year into your wedding is an exciting opportunity to infuse your celebration with contemporary style and elegance. By carefully selecting key elements like attire, florals, decor, and stationery, you can create a cohesive and visually stunning wedding that reflects the current trends and makes your special day even more memorable. Embrace the Peach Fuzz, get creative, and let your wedding shine in the hue of the year!
