The highly anticipated Pantone color of the year has been revealed, and it’s clear – Peach Fuzz triumphs over all other hues. The 2024 feature is a gentle peach tone that radiates warmth and elegance, which makes it an ideal wedding shade for your tropical nuptials. This year, we’re taking things up a notch by showing not only how you can incorporate Pantone’s color of the year into your own destination wedding plans, but how Brides and Minted’s standout and complementary Marseille Blue adds a little something extra to your special day.
Setting the Tone
Your invitations are the first glimpse guests will get of your upcoming wedding, so go all in on this year’s winning shades with Marseille Blue invitations sprinkled with pops of Pantone’s Color of the Year, Peach Fuzz on the trim. These colors will give your friends and family a hint at what they can expect in your chosen tropical paradise and how these tones will be brought to life on the big day.
Opposing shades on the color wheel are beautifully complementary, and orange and blue happily sit across from each other – chef’s kiss! To create a unique arrangement for your bouquet, select from a variety of blooms in Peach Fuzz tones with white accents and tie it all together with Marseille Blue ribbons that softly cascade as you walk down the aisle.
To add a dash of “something blue” to your wedding look, incorporate a sash or delicate embroidery on your dress or bouquet ribbonry in Brides and Minted’s top hue. Contrast the bold blue with subtle peach jewelry or accessories so you don’t overpower your bridal beauty with too many shades and colors.
Elevate your bridesmaids’ style with statement gowns in this deep oceanic shade in a simple silhouette and introduce pops of peach on their shoes, purses, or even a bouquet to ensure their looks are cohesive with yours.
With color, there’s no limit to your creativity and no reason why you should stop at attire and décor. Create two signature cocktails – one infused with a liqueur, pigment, or flavor paying tribute to Pantone’s Color of the year Peach Fuzz, and another using the refreshing notes and boldness of Marseille Blue through inspired garnishes, offering a delightful surprise with every sip.
Collaborate with your baker to design a cake that beautifully reflects your wedding palette – and palate. Consider a white cake base as your canvas and decorate it with fondant flowers, icing, or a trim in 2024 award-winning tones and your chosen shades.
For a truly enchanting tablescape, play around with varying textures, layers, and items, combine Peach Fuzz and Marseille Blue with your overarching color palette, and contrast your linens with centerpieces created from gorgeous flowers and blooms. Not only will this add more ambience and character to your venue, but the space will offer more depth and visual interest.
Set the mood in your reception space with warm lighting to create a welcoming environment for your guests. This will also accentuate the elegant touches of Marseille Blue and warm Peach Fuzz tones that have been infused into your tablescapes, centrepieces, and wedding cake.
To show your gratitude, send your guests on their way with something that matches the aura of your nuptials in paradise. What you gift is up to you but consider a memento, whether custom-made or picked up from your favorite boutique, that encapsulates both the essence of your wedding and reflects your color story. You can’t go wrong.
As you start planning your 2024 wedding, remember that beauty lies even in the smallest details – from florals to favors. Embrace 2024’s Pantone Color of the Year while contrasting it with the bold, yet timeless allure of Marseille Blue. Here’s to a celebration that’s as unique as your love story!
