We’ve scoured the internet, read through all the wedding blogs, have gone through Instagram and Tik Tok and we’ve gathered for you the top 9 latest and greatest expected trends for 2024!
1. VIBRANT COLOUR PALETTES
2024 is all about embracing bold and vibrant colour palettes.
We’re talking vibrant corals, electric blues, vivid yellows and so much more! Adding pops of colour to your wedding will create an atmosphere that radiates energy and joy!
2. CREATIVE PATTERNS
We saw patterns on the rise in 2023, and we know we’re going to see them big in 2024! Classic floral prints, chic geometrics, bold retro patterns.
We’re expecting to see them in linens – like tablecloths, runners, and napkins! And of course, stationery, like invitations, seating boards, printed bars/dancefloors, you name it!
As environmental consciousness continues to grow, sustainable weddings are on the rise. A lot of couples these days are looking for ways to make their wedding more sustainable. They are ditching the printed invitation for a digital one, they are focusing on locally sourced materials and getting rid of anything that may be deemed ‘excess’.
4. ORGANIC STYLES
An organic style is all about embracing the natural beauty of your surroundings. This trend is about creating a connection with nature and incorporating natural, organic materials and shapes into your wedding decor.
This includes wooden tables, greenery in centrepieces, embracing the venue and adding do its natural beauty, rather than transforming. It is all about simplicity and authenticity, creating a setting that feels warm, inviting, and in harmony with nature.
5. RETRO VIBES
Do you sense the feeling of nostalgia all around us? For some reason there’s a longing for the 60s, 70’s and 80’s vibes! People just can’t get enough of that cool, retro chic style and it is becoming a growing trend. This year we saw disco balls, next year we’re expecting vintage/retro.
6. ON-DAY CONTENT CREATION
Social Media has become a huge part of our day to day. This year we’ve seen a lot of businesses popping up focusing solely on wedding-day content creation.
There’s a small team, they join you on your wedding day from start to finish and they capture all the moments a photographer does, and so much more like behind the scenes, getting ready, all your friends doing silly things. The more ‘real’ aspect of the day rather than the gorgeous picture-perfect result of the photographer. And they give you instagrammable photos, reels, and videos ready for Tik Tok to do with as you please!
7. AUDIO GUESTBOOK
Guestbooks have always been a thing, in a small wedding you can easily have your guests sign a book and leave a wish, or set up a polaroid/photo booth station for them to leave their photos in.
An emerging trend we’ve seen around the world is audio guestbooks. This allows guests to leave heartfelt messages and wishes through voice recordings. We’ve seen retro/old school telephones set up as voice recorders and we love it! It’s interactive, it’s personal, it’s fun.
8. IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCES
Creating an unforgettable experience for wedding guests has become an art form. In 2024, couples are focusing on immersive experiences that transport their guests.
From aerial acrobats and firework displays to live orchestras and theatrical performances, the possibilities are endless to entertain your guests and captivate all the senses.
9. VISUAL EFFECTS
We’ve seen floor sparklers in the past years, and this year we saw CO2 guns! Smoke mines are the latest Tik Tok trend that’s been adding a wow factor to weddings and we’re expecting to see them in 2024.
