With the autumn and winter wedding season quickly approaching, it’s no surprise that one of the hottest trends continues to be the use of Pantone’s Color of the Year, which just happens to be “Peach Fuzz” for 2024.

While the initial reaction is to save this shade for spring and summer, there are plenty of ways to surprise and delight with this cheerful color in the cooler months as well.

A velvety, gentle peach whose all-embracing spirit enriches the mind, body and soul, Peach Fuzz is sensitive yet sweet and airy, evoking a new modernity.

We polled some wedding experts on top ways to give Pantone’s Color of the Year Peach Fuzz a special role in your Big Day.

“Wedding party attire is a very easy way to incorporate Peach Fuzz into your wedding color palette. Whether you have bridal party dresses in this color or have groomsmen who utilize Peach Fuzz for ties or pocket squares, you can easily incorporate this.”

“As florists, we LOVE to incorporate peach tones in our fall floral design color palettes. As I say, dahlias are the fall peony—there are so many beautiful peach-tone dahlias and other fall flowers to stay within a seasonal palette. If you’re looking to add a peach color to your winter wedding, I again say yes! Peach is a great transition color—it goes well with blush tones and helps to bridge to the plum and burgundy blooms. Color is in, even for winter weddings!”

“Save the dates and invitations will set the tone for the wedding, so the stationery is the perfect place to infuse the color palette selected for the wedding. Introducing Peach Fuzz by way of the stationery can be very subtle, with a peachy pop of color on the envelope and a beautiful ribbon embellishment, or it can be the dominant color for the design. The Pantone Color of the Year 2024, Peach Fuzz, is a soft yet warm shade that reads as a more sophisticated neutral, which is a perfect pick to be part of the wedding color palette. The peach tone lends itself beautifully to be incorporated through textured materials, such as suede cardstocks, velvet and chinois silk ribbon applications, and even glossy wax seals.”
—Kelley Nudo, Momental Designs

“I would suggest thinking creatively and going beyond just adding Peach Fuzz to your flowers and decorations. Add ‘style’ to your wedding by thinking about every detail, from your lipstick to the cocktails you’re going to serve guests. Imagine how gorgeous the photos will look with a coordinated color palette. Serve pretty ‘Guavaritas’ in clear glasses made with pinky-peach guava puree that will look lovely on tables or in guests’ hands.”

“Fall is the perfect time to embrace Peach Fuzz-colored florals! Peach-colored envelopes or stamps could also be used for your invitation suite. Peach-colored napkins, candle tapers or table linens are also a nice way to include pops of the Pantone Color of the Year.”
—Stacie Marshall, Marshall Arts Photography

“Think about warm color palettes. For autumn and winter, you’ll want to evoke a sense of warmth in your event design. Mix Peach Fuzz with autumnal orange tones and crimson reds to create a palette that keeps things fresh but still fits the season.”
—Megan Breukelman, Megan & Kenneth

Adding some warmth and brightness to your fall or winter wedding is a wonderful way to stray from the traditional cool tones we often see as synonymous with late-year celebrations. We highly recommend aiming for the unexpected and pull some punches with Peach Fuzz!
