One of the trendiest colors included in wedding palettes every year is peach. Peach is flirty, feminine and seasonally appropriate for spring and summer. One of our very favorite trends to emerge from the peach and blush craze are peach wedding dresses!
We’ve seen them on the catwalks of London Bridal Week (2018), which means we’ve also seen those dresses in bridal store windows.
These charming bridal gowns are perfect for brides who want to buck tradition without pushing the envelope too far. After all, many brides consider peach and blush-toned wedding dress safe alternatives to traditional white gowns. To help inspire you, we’ve created a guide to peach wedding dresses.
Included in this article are styling and venue ideas. Furthermore, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite peach gowns for your consideration!
What Makes Peach Wedding Dresses So Popular?
Lightly shaded gowns in lavenders, champagnes, blushes, and peaches are outrageously trendy. Steadily, we’ve seen a departure from the traditional big ballroom wedding for more intimate venues. Large displays of florals, cakes, and linens are becoming more personalized, DIY and reflective of the bride and grooms personalities. One of the wedding trends that has changed over the years is the need for a white dress. Instead, gowns bearing a little touch of color reflect some bride’s tastes and personal style better.
In addition, peach wedding dresses are incredibly flattering against certain skin tones. Where traditional white gowns wash out brides with paler skin, peach shades can bring out rosy or golden undertones. The result is a vibrant, healthy looking bride, flush with romance on her big day!
Finally, a beach wedding dress is an excellent option for a bride who is remarrying! While second wedding dresses can certainly be white, some brides don’t want to commit a faux pas. Instead, they search out an off-white dress to keep with tradition.
Where is a Peach Wedding Dress Most Appropriate?
A non-traditional wedding gown is a perfect statement for nontraditional weddings. A blushing peach dress would look perfect at a boho wedding or more rustic affairs in the outdoors. In particular, a peach wedding dress would be stunning during a spring or summer wedding. Just picture portraits in a blooming garden!
A gown of this shade would also look gorgeous at a more casual beach wedding. Not only is the shade more warm and inviting, it would show up much better in traditional wedding portraits on the beach! Photographers often combat a glare and a loss of dress detail in the direct sunlight and reflection from the sand. A peach or blush gown would contrast beautifully against the blue ocean water, and wouldn’t throw off a blinding glare!
Here are our favorite venue types to wear a warm-toned wedding gown:
- Garden wedding
- Open air event venue
- Backyard wedding
- Villa or naturally-lit venue
- Beach or waterfront location
Peach Wedding Gown Styling Tips
Something about this warm-toned shade evokes charm and feminity. When styling your hair and makeup for a peach wedding dress, we recommend you keep your look soft and romantic. Try soft, flowing curls or a loose chignon to achieve this look!
Your makeup should complement the dress and not clash with it. Bold red lips or too-dark eye makeup looks can look strange against the delicate blush shade of the gown. Ask your stylist to try warm, golden-honey or pink tones in your eye makeup. A mauve, nude or rose lip would look lovely, and keep your entire look warm, inviting and sweet!

The groom’s color palette should complement the bride’s as much as possible. Rather than choosing a black suit or jacket, we recommend he lighten things up with navy, light grey, or royal blue suits or pants. Whether he wears a tie or a bow-tie, he can match the shade of your gown easily. Here are some of our favorite peach neckwear options:
