There's only one way to describe how the peach wedding dress trend makes me feel as a bridal fashion editor: just peachy! In case you haven't heard, Pantone's Color Institute announced Peach Fuzz as the 2024 Color of the Year and it's made for weddings. "Peach Fuzz (both in hue and name) feels like the perfect balm for these tumultuous times," says Naomi Rougeau, The Knot's Senior Fashion and Beauty Editor. "Bonus: It's incredibly flattering (something decorators and designers have long known) and you needn't save it for spring as it's a perfect way to combat winter pallor and enhance your wedding day glow." Even if you only want subtle touches of peach, you can't go wrong with incorporating it into your bridesmaid dresses, accessories or makeup.

If this wedding trend also has you feeling peachy keen but you aren't sure how to include it in your wedding fashion, don't fret. From flirty peach wedding dresses and accessories to bridesmaid dresses and shoes, I've rounded up the cutest, freshly-picked peach pieces for you to indulge in below.

Peach, a hue nestled perfectly between pink and orange, has long been a beloved color in the wedding and fashion scene for decades, especially in the spring and summer months, because it's both fresh and light while remaining warm and inviting. "The wonderful thing about the 2024 Pantone Color of the Year is that peach is already a pretty popular wedding color—and one that you can use year-round," says Samantha Iacia, an editor at The Knot. "Depending on your desired look, you can adapt Peach Fuzz in a few different ways: by pairing it with yellow, pink and red tones for a punchy wedding color palette, or with neutrals, like ivory and brass, for an understated approach."

Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute, said in the official announcement, "Poetic and romantic, a clean peach tone with a vintage vibe, Pantone 13-1023 Peach Fuzz reflects the past yet has been refashioned with a contemporary ambiance." And it seems that they aren't the only ones who think peach is making a comeback; Pinterest's 2024 Trend Report notes that '70s weddings, which often carry warm hues and peach tones, are also making a groovy resurgence.

More recently, fashion houses like Viktor & Rolf Haute Couture and Ulla Johnson had peach tones donning their runways, specifically in gowns and formalwear. Celebrities like Florence Pugh and Sydney Sweeney have embraced peach in red carpet style, and it's also a widely popular pop of color for gender-neutral attire and menswear suits. Just check out the peach-hued silk blazer that Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, for instance, wore to the 95th Annual Academy Awards. Needless to say, peach has been and will continue to be a timeless hue for all sorts of occasions.

Peach Wedding Dresses

Does anyone remember Peaches and Cream Barbie from the 1980's? If you haven't seen her dress before, look her up; it's iconic. The dress she wears is absolutely dreamy and it's also the inspiration for my peach wedding dress picks I curated just for you below.

Lean into the fun with a pair of statement flats or heels that you can easily show off with the skirt's high-low hemline.
