Before wedding planning can begin, couples have to figure out what colors to choose. That can be a surprisingly difficult decision!

Pick a Mood Before You Pick Your Palette
Many brides and grooms pick their favorite colors when choosing a wedding day color palette, but that doesn’t mean it’s the best strategy. Instead, we want you to take some time to think about the mood you want to set on your wedding day first.
That’s especially true when it comes to a color like Peach Fuzz. Its peachy-pink hue is undoubtedly feminine, but you aren’t considering the full realm of possibility if you think it’s a girly color and you leave it at that.
Peach Fuzz can be incorporated into nuptials that are upbeat and energetic, moody and romantic, or even masculine, depending on the colors it is paired with.
Once you have a clearer idea of the type of mood you want to create, choosing a 2024 Pantone color palette suddenly becomes much easier.
⦁ If you want to keep things classic, opt for a combination of Peach Fuzz and pearl or black, white, and Peach Fuzz
⦁ If you want to create a retro feel, consider a combination of mustard yellow, Peach Fuzz, and boho neutrals
⦁ If you want a light, airy, and feminine wedding, try peach, apricot, and lavender or Peach Fuzz and blushing blue
⦁ If you love a gothic color palette, pair Pantone's 2024 color with the color of the year in 2023: Viva Magenta
⦁ If you want a balance of masculine and feminine energy, create a color palette with shades of stone, leather, and Peach Fuzz

Incorporate Unique Textures
Peach Fuzz is a unique Pantone color because it evokes a tactile reaction when you hear the name. This shade encourages us to find peace from within and care for ourselves and others. It literally gives us warm-fuzzy feelings, just like the soft skin of a ripe peach.
Making the 2024 Pantone color of the year come alive means tapping into its tactile nature and incorporating unique textures into your big day.
The most obvious way to do this is to incorporate actual peaches into your décor. Arrange peach slices on charcuterie boards, scatter whole peaches on tables among candle holders and flower arrangements, or create delectable desserts using this fruit. Keep things soft with velvet fabrics draped over tables and find ways to include suede, like having the groomsmen wear suede shoes and ties.
Other textural colors can be incorporated into your wedding day. Keep things neutral with fluffy pampas grass, evoke a sense of old-world charm by incorporating antique leather-bound books into centerpieces, or keep things smooth and shiny with mother of pearl and copper details.
By combining color with unique textures, you honor the nature of Pantone’s color of the year, but you can also make any color palette come alive.

Include Pops of Peach Fuzz Where Guests Least Expect It
When incorporating certain colors into your wedding day, most brides and grooms think about the basics like tablecloths, flowers, and bridal party attire. We think a color like Peach Fuzz has even more impact when you incorporate it in ways that guests don’t expect.
You might place Peace Fuzz-colored candles in tapered candle holders instead of choosing white candles. Create delectable treats that feature Peach Fuzz hues during cocktail hour or set tables with peace-colored glasses.

Create Opportunities for Closeness at Your Wedding
Pantone chose Peach Fuzz in 2024 in part because it is a hue that reminds us to cherish what is special. It reminds us of the comfort and warmth of spending time with those we hold dear while highlighting the importance of community.
Recreate the welcoming embrace this color is meant to remind us of by creating opportunities for closeness at your wedding.
Having a circle wedding ceremony feels much more intimate than traditional rows, making it a great choice for Peach Fuzz weddings. Vignettes are also a great way to invite guests to interact more intimately. Try setting up small conversation areas in your reception space so your friends and family are encouraged to scooch in close and get vulnerable with each other.
A color like Peach Fuzz also gives you the opportunity to have a smaller wedding, as small weddings always feel more intimate than larger gatherings. If you still want to celebrate with your extended family and friends, consider having a small ceremony followed by a big reception later.
With its peachy-pink hue, Peach Fuzz is the perfect inspiration for 2024 weddings. Envelop your wedding in the Pantone color of the year with these tips and you’re sure to feel the love on your big day.
