Despite the many traditions couples love to incorporate on their wedding day, the world of weddings is full of new trends and ideas. Our couples are turning their attention towards elevating guest experiences, prioritizing comfort and style, and placing emphasis on beautiful yet functional design. Here are a few 2024 wedding trends that we love, and are gaining popularity this upcoming season.

The “Non-Bridal” Party

There’s a shift in how brides spend the wedding day with their favorite ladies, and it’s all about the guest experience. We’re seeing more hair, makeup, and morning mimosas; less attire prerequisites and wedding party processionals. More and more, ladies are relaxing in the bridal suite, selecting their own dresses, and sitting during the ceremony.

A Double Outfit Change

Brides love to escape their wedding gown in favor of an eye-catching second look. But how about a third! We’re seeing brides take on a second outfit change, often during key transition times – such after cocktail hour and before the after party.

Skip the Post-Wedding Brunch

We’re seeing couples opt-out of a post-wedding brunch, in favor of hosting another activity on the front end of the weekend – think golf tournaments, pickleball, wine tasting, or a casual gathering for guests who come into town early. For those who do desire a Sunday Funday, we’re seeing much later start times so that guests can relax and sleep in.

Guest Color Palette

There are increased requests for couples asking their guests to dress in a specific color palette for the wedding. An assigned color palette looks fantastic in photos, and is a really fun way to tie guest attire into the overall wedding design and aesthetic.

Highly Interactive Action Stations

While the action station is tried and true, there’s an experience-focused shift taking place. Couples are opting for more chef-assisted interaction on the food station front – from beautiful raw bars to freshly grilled tropical fruit, live-toasted s’mores, and fired local cherry flambé.
