According to Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of Pantone Color Institute, “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.” That color is Peach Fuzz. (https://www.pantone.com/color-of-the-year/2024)
Peach Fuzz is a color that recalls nostalgic festivities, a 1980s vibe, very Peaches and Cream Barbie meets champagne towers and over-the-top flowers. The perfect color for the trends we will be seeing this year. It’s a color that immediately gives off a sense of warmth and coziness, and due to its hue, it allows you to mix and match some amazing combinations.
Be ready to see Peach Fuzz incorporated into bridesmaid dresses in fun patterns, mix-and-match vintage styles, and ombre effects. Another fashionable moment is incorporating color into the dress. Flora and Lane (https://www.floraandlane.com/) offer BEAUTIFUL wedding dresses, and their Rosa or Meadow wedding gowns would be perfect for incorporating the peach fuzz hues. The Rosa dress is this beautiful soft peach/pink gown with beautiful embroidery while the Meadow dress gives you “something blue” with embroidery that has peach flowers on it. We get this question asked many times when the color of the year is announced, if the bridesmaids are in peach, what color should the men wear? With this soft color, be prepared to see navy blue, chocolate, and gray suits.
Architectural flowers are back and having Peach Fuzz play a huge role in them will certainly make a statement. Ranunculus, shimmer roses, apricot carnations, Juliet Garden roses, and snapdragons are a sure way to bring that gorgeous peach color into your wedding day.
Peach Fuzz is a gorgeous color to incorporate into your wedding and it’s a fun color to play with. When in doubt, remember to ask your favorite wedding planners, we are excited to help!
