2024 Wedding Trends
While so many aspects of planning weddings are classic, there are always wedding trends unique to that year. 2024 wedding trends are taking on some fun trends from custom decor to retro fashion. As you plan your 2024 wedding, consider embracing these unique 2024 wedding trends.
Custom Acrylic Wedding Signs
For many years, rustic wood signs were the most popular option for wedding signage. In 2024 however, clear acrylic wedding signs are the up-and-coming option. We love how they are see-through and airy, but can also be bold and eye-catching by incorporating your wedding colors. These signs can be used for anything from table numbers to seating arrangements. Keep your wedding day organized with these beautiful, trending signs!
A Second Outfit for the Bride
We’ve known many brides to change into a second wedding dress for their reception, but it’s becoming a popular wedding trend to change into a much more casual outfit– even custom pajamas for part of the, or the entire, wedding reception. There are many ways to embrace this trend. Some brides are adding a monogrammed jacket to their ensemble. Other brides are completely changing into a casual, white outfit. If you choose to embrace this 2024 wedding trend, you can customize it to fit your taste!
Couples are opting for simple wedding colors, as opposed to having a wedding theme.
Gone are the days of a themed wedding, for example, Disney or a specific sports team. Couples are opting to have the design of their wedding day be looser, with less specific themes. Couples’ wedding colors are even becoming softer, unlike the past few years of bold colors. While couples are not necessarily simplifying the expense put into their wedding day, they are being more strategic with where that money is placed– and it’s not on themed wedding decor. Couples are choosing simpler custom, colorful decor and florals.
More than ever, pets are included on the wedding day.
While many couples have had their beloved pets be ring bearers or flower girls, more couples than ever are having their pets included in more of their wedding day. For these couples, a rise in dog-sitting wedding services is welcome news. Dog-sitting wedding services should be a must on couples’ to-book lists when it comes to including their pets on their wedding day. Someone needs to take Fido out, especially if it’s in the middle of the wedding ceremony.
Old is new!
Many 2024 couples are embracing our childhoods and including disposable cameras or Polaroid cameras for guests to take photos with. We love the idea of a photo wedding guestbook. A photo wedding guest book is when guests take an instant photo booth or Polaroid photo and sign it in a photo album for the newlyweds. Other “old” trends being embraced are 1990’s inspired fashions, such as bridal gloves, dropped waist dresses, and spaghetti straps with straight necklines. But, hey, let’s not call the 1990s old yet, okay?
