These six wedding trends will be on the rise in 2024! As wedding planners, we can’t wait to see more of these trends, especially since we’ve already seen some in 2023. It’s exciting to know our clients are ahead of the curve! Whether you love to embrace every trend or want to add some subtle modern touches to your classic wedding, you won’t want to miss these top wedding trends for 2024.
2024 Wedding Trends
Seated Bridal Parties
If you’ve ever stood up for a wedding, you know how tiring it can be! Especially if you’re a bridesmaid wearing sky-high heels. What’s the solution? A seated bridal party!
We love this trend because it prioritizes the comfort of your VIPs. They’ll thank you for the opportunity to sit back, relax, and enjoy your ceremony instead of standing still for 30 minutes straight. Moreover, seating your bridal party makes for clean ceremony photos that put the focus on the two of you. It’s a win-win!
Bold and Bright Color Schemes
While we love a classic neutral color palette, we’re excited by the rise of bold and bright palettes for 2024. Think vibrant turquoise, juicy tangerine, and Barbie pink! We especially love this trend for a summer wedding. You could go all out and incorporate bright colors throughout your wedding design, or you could introduce subtle pops of color in the little details like your jewelry, shoes, and table décor.
Patterns and Texture
It isn’t just wedding color palettes that are becoming more bold. Brides are also incorporating more patterns and textural details into their wedding designs! One of our favorite ways to embrace this trend is with floral-patterned details like bridesmaid dresses and tablecloths. We also love adding texture to wedding tablescapes by mixing fresh flowers with dried elements.
Veils Are Back
For a while, bridal veils fell out of favor, replaced by other accessories such as boho hats and flower crowns. But in 2024, the veil is back! And it’s not your mother’s veil, either. Nowadays, you can purchase a veil in almost any style and length to suit your unique style. There are also veils with fun details like pearls, Swarovski crystals, and lace that take this classic accessory from an afterthought to the star of your bridal ensemble.
Textured and Colorful Cakes
Are you noticing a pattern yet? If you love bold colors, there’s no need to settle for a ho-hum white wedding cake! Feel free to embrace your unique style with colorful buttercream, watercolor textures, and edible accents like dainty pastel macarons. Inedible textural details like ruffles, lace, and pearls are also a lot of fun if you prefer a classic white cake with a twist.
Exchanging Private Vows
If you prefer not to spill your heart out to your partner in front of all your guests, you aren’t alone. In 2024, more couples will exchange their vows one-on-one or in front of a small group of loved ones. This arrangement takes the pressure off your ceremony and allows you to share your heartfelt promises to your partner without fear of embarrassment or tripping over your words. It also makes quality time with each other on your wedding day a priority—as it should be!
If you’re a 2024 bride, we hope you’re as excited about these wedding trends as we are! As your wedding planner, we’ll help you incorporate your favorite trends into your special day in a way that reflects your style and one-of-a-kind love story.
