As we approach the year 2024, wedding trends are evolving and taking inspiration from the hottest ideas in the wedding world. Couples are looking for unique and creative ways to make their big day even more special.
If you’re planning your wedding for 2024 and need some inspiration, you’ve come to the right place. Here we are about to explore the top wedding trends for 2024 that can help you on your way to creating a truly magical celebration. Whether you’re dreaming of a classic, modern, or eco-friendly wedding vibes, these trends have something for everyone.
Starting off with a real gem! Pearls, and they are making a comeback in a big way. From wedding dresses and adorned veils to tulle gloves and even speckled in your bridal hairstyle. Traditional pearls are adding an elegant and timeless touch to bridal fashion.
Ring for Champagne
Picture this: a floral or foliage wall with a bell that guests can ring at your wedding cocktail hour. A hand pops out of the wall, offering your guests a glass of bubbly. It’s a unique and interactive way to kick off the celebrations and will have your guests talking about it for years to come.
Sip and Solve
Keep your guests engaged with interactive ‘Sip and Solve’ games at your wedding drinks reception. Consider a ‘Couple’s Crossword’ in the gardens or a ‘Snap Shot Scavenger Hunt’ to encourage guests to capture candid and hilarious moments that the photographer might miss.
A wedding website is your ultimate ticket to organisation. So, if you’re a couple who dread the admin that comes with your wedding, this trend is the one for you. Create a website that is central hub for all things related to your big day. Include information about the venue, dress code, RSVP, menu selection, gift list, and more, making it easier for your guests to stay informed.
A wedding trend we are loving that is sure to make a big hit in 2024 is the Wedding Newspaper. Think of it as your own ‘Newlyweds Post’. A personalised newspaper for you and your guests that includes things like the order of the day, the tale of your love story, photographs, and even mini games. It’s a fun and memorable keepsake for everyone.
If you are a couple who doesn’t have a sweet tooth and could do away with your wedding cake then here is your opportunity to use one of the most recent wedding trends, a Champagne Tower! It really adds a touch of luxury and elegance, also providing you with a perfect opportunity for a toast with your guests. Get ready to pop the champs!
Transform your wedding into a weekend-long celebration, where you and your guests can relax, unwind, and make cherished memories. Whether it’s a welcome cocktail party on Friday, the wedding ceremony on Saturday, and a farewell brunch on Sunday, a weekend or two-day wedding offers the perfect opportunity to savour every moment with your loved ones in a more relaxed and extended setting.
Modern Musical Choices
Elevate the atmosphere with a string quartet or saxophonist but have them playing renditions of chart toppers or your favourite modern songs in conventional genres. Think Beyonce or Fall Out Boy but in the sweet sound of a saxophone. It’s a fresh take on traditional wedding music that you and your guests will adore.
Wedding trends happen as the result of couples always looking for new and innovative ways to personalise their wedding celebrations and this trend is the ultimate answer. Incorporating a celebrant into your wedding allows for a deeply personal and customised ceremony. Your celebrant will work closely with you to craft a ceremony that reflects your values, beliefs, and the unique story of your love.
Embrace monochrome aesthetics with black bridesmaid dresses, monochrome wedding decor and styling, maybe even a dress code for your guests to be all-black, black tie. This bold choice can make a striking impact and will never go out of fashion.
Replace the traditional guestbook with a modern twist. Have a phone available for guests to leave heartfelt audio messages for the couple, creating a treasured keepsake. Take advantage of our very own Audio Guestbook which is available for you wedding here at the Manor.
In the age of social media and influencers, consider hiring wedding content creators who can capture TikToks, reels, videos, and content of your entire wedding, in addition to your traditional photographer and videographer.
Embrace eco-friendly practices and consider a DIY approach to wedding decorations and favours to reduce your ecological footprint. Sustainable weddings are huge right now and will sure be here to stay in 2024, let’s do our bit for the planet.
