If you were to imagine a painterly sunset vista, a picture awash with graduating pink and orange may come to mind. Sauntering throughout the composition, harmonizing its alluring scheme is Peach Fuzz, Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2024. Where as last year’s color, Viva Magenta, announced itself in dramatic fashion, Peach Fuzz greets with soft caress. Pantone Color Institute Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman elaborates:

“In seeking a hue that echoes our innate yearning for closeness and connection, we chose a color radiant with warmth and elegance. A shade that resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless.”

The arch is the focal point of the ceremony and for many, the most important decor element in a wedding. All eyes will be concentrated on this structure standing at the end of the aisleway where it frames the couple as they exchange vows. In both indoor and outdoor settings, it anchors a space while establishing the aesthetic tone for florals and decor. Symbolically, the archway represents a couple’s future home as they start their new life together.

Scrolling through Instagram and Pinterest for inspiration, you’ll quickly notice that ceremony arches come in various shapes and sizes. Going back through the Real BB Weddings archives, we narrowed it down to the three most popular shapes: round, square, and curved. Because each design is uniquely beautiful from the next and requires different structural materials to make, deciding which type of archway is right for your wedding ceremony can be difficult. To help make the selection process easier, we are breaking down everything you need to know about round, square, and curved archways.
