With the new year, comes new trends and we can’t wait to see what wedding trends emerge this year. Picture this: content creators turning “I Do” into Insta-gold, private ceremonies for a more intimate affair, and a groovy trip back to the 70s. Join us as we spill the tea on what we think more couples will do for their weddings in 2024. Ready for the deets on these wedding trend predictions? Let’s dive in!
Wedding Content Creators
The first wedding trend, one that was taking everyone by storm in 2023, is wedding content creators. We saw social media content creators niche down and offer their services to brides on their wedding day. With all the excitement and eagerness of getting married, you might not remember to film that video clip for a TikTok trend that you wanted to do. Having a personal content creator on your wedding day solves that pain point. They capture all the fun and candid moments throughout your big day so you can stay off your phone and stay present in the moment. You don’t have to be an influencer to want to share your wedding moments on IG or TikTok. Hiring a wedding content creator is a different way to capture candid, unforgettable moments on your big day.
(If you’re on a tight budget and can’t afford another vendor, you could ask that tech-savvy friend of yours to be in charge. Perhaps you have a junior bridesmaid who knows all the TikTok trends and dances.)
Get ready to throw it back to the days of disco balls and flower power! According to Pinterest Predicts, the 70s are making a comeback in bridal aesthetics. Bringing back bohemian florals, flowy sleeves, and a whole lot of groovy vibes. Brides in 2024 are saying yes to the free-spirited, laid-back feels of the 70s, turning their weddings into a nostalgic dance of love. Wedding color palettes will incorporate more mustard yellows, burnt oranges, and earthy browns. Dance floors will be transformed into a funky disco where the couple and guests can boogie the night away. 2024 is all about timeless love and a whole lot of retro charm.
Digital Guest Books
Out with the pen and paper, in with digital memories! Digital guest books are the new wedding trend, letting guests leave messages, photos, and even videos for the couple to look back on. It allows guests to better capture their energy while celebrating the newlywed. A popular alternative are Polaroid guestbooks where guests snap a photo with a Polaroid camera. Now the concept has been entirely digitalized with QR codes that allow guests to upload photos straight from their phone. Sites like Guestpix or Kulu, make it easy for your guests to share their images, no app required. We think more couples will place these QR codes throughout their reception so guests can share their photos with ease.
Another wedding trend that we predict for 2024, is more couples opting for a private ceremony before their grand celebration. Private ceremonies allow couples to exchange vows in a setting that truly resonates with their love story. It allows the couple to have a heartfelt moment without the pressure of adhering to traditional norms. Whether it’s a secluded garden, a beach at sunset, or the comfort of home, private ceremonies offer the flexibility to choose a location that holds sentimental value. After the intimate “I Dos” they can celebrate with the rest of their friends and family at the reception.
Pearls & Bows
Lastly, we think classic elegance will get a modern twist with pearls and bows stealing the spotlight. Pearls, the OG symbol of sophistication, are continuing to make a comeback in bridal accessories and decor. Paired with whimsical bows, it’s a combo that adds a touch of romance and charm to the wedding scene. Nothing says romance quite like a beautifully tied bow. From delicate bows accentuating the back of a wedding dress to oversized bows adorning chairs or floral arrangements. It’s traditional but with a modern twist.
Alright, wedding trendsetters, get ready to say “I Do” in style in 2024! From digital guest books to pearls & bows bringing classic charm, it’s a year of bridal trends that’ll make your heart race. Stay tuned as we share how to turn your wedding dreams into reality!
