As the calendar flips to the next year, so do wedding style trends. Engaged couples eagerly search for the latest and greatest ideas to make their special day truly unforgettable. Whether you’re planning a lavish affair or an intimate gathering, staying on top of what’s in and what’s out can help you curate a celebration that reflects your unique personality. Let’s dive into 2024’s Wedding Style Report to discover the essential elements making waves this year.

What’s IN:

Signature Cocktails

Move over, generic drink menus—signature cocktails are taking center stage at weddings in 2024. Couples are embracing the opportunity to craft custom libations that reflect their tastes and love story. From creative concoctions named after the couple’s favorite vacation spot to cocktails inspired by their first date, the options are limitless. Not only do signature cocktails add a personal touch to the bar menu, but they also serve as conversation starters for guests. They may learn a little about you and your love story and make them feel apart of it all on your special day.

Mismatched Wedding Attire for the Wedding Party

Gone are the days of perfectly coordinated bridal parties dressed in identical dresses and suits. In 2024, couples are embracing individuality and celebrating the unique personalities of their wedding party members with mismatched attire. Bridesmaids are adorned in dresses in varying shades of the same color or within a color palette, and mix and match styles that suit their body types and preferences. Grooms and groomsmen sport suits or tuxedos in complementary hues, allowing each member to shine in their own distinctive way. This trend not only adds visual interest to wedding photos but also ensures that everyone feels comfortable and confident on the big day.

Late-Night Snacks

After hours of dancing and celebration, guests work up quite the appetite. That’s why late-night snacks have become a must-have at weddings in 2024. From gourmet sliders and tacos to decadent dessert stations, couples are treating their guests to an array of delicious bites to refuel and keep the party going. Late-night snacks also provide an opportunity to showcase the couple’s favorite foods or incorporate cultural influences, adding another personal touch to the festivities.

Phone-Free Weddings

In a world where smartphones are constantly vying for our attention, couples are opting for phone-free weddings in 2024. By asking guests to unplug and be fully present in the moment, couples create an intimate and distraction-free atmosphere where guests can truly connect with each other and savor the magic of the day. From unplugged ceremonies to designated phone-check stations, couples are finding creative ways to encourage guests to disconnect and fully engage in the celebration.

What’s OUT:

Long Ceremonies

Say goodbye to lengthy ceremonies that leave guests squirming in their seats. In 2024, couples are opting for more concise and meaningful ceremonies that focus on what’s most important – their love and commitment to each other. By trimming down the length of ceremonies, couples create a more intimate and memorable experience.

Bouquet Toss

The bouquet toss is fun for some but not for everyone. You may have guests that don’t want to be singled out to come on the dance floor for the bouquet toss. Once a staple of wedding receptions, many couples are choosing to forgo this tradition in favor of more inclusive and modern alternatives. Couples are finding new ways to celebrate with their guests.

Wedding Hashtags

While wedding hashtags were once a fun way to aggregate photos and posts from the big day, they’ve become somewhat passé in 2024. With social media platforms constantly evolving and privacy concerns on the rise, couples are opting to keep their wedding day more private and intimate. Instead of encouraging guests to share photos online, couples are providing disposable cameras or hiring professional photographers to capture the special moments without the need for hashtags.

Donut Walls

Say goodbye to the donut wall trend that has been popping up at weddings in recent years. While undeniably Instagram-worthy, couples are moving away from this novelty in favor of more sophisticated dessert options. Whether it’s a decadent dessert bar, a gourmet cake display, or an assortment of artisanal sweets, couples are opting for dessert options that reflect their tastes and elevate the dessert experience for their guests.

There you have it! Our Wedding Style Report offers a glimpse into the latest trends in 2024. From signature cocktails and mismatched attire to late-night snacks and phone-free celebrations, couples are embracing different ways to make their weddings more personal and meaningful and valuing quality overall.
