Our Top 4 Wedding Trends of 2024

The predictions have been cast for emerging wedding trends on the rise for 2024. If you’re searching for the fresh fads of the wedding season, our talented team of wedding planners and professionals have collected a few of our favorites.

Whether it’s colors to inspire, chic décor ideas or a whole vibe, these wedding trends are sure to inspire any engaged couple.

Trend #1: Quiet Luxury

Beautiful wedding at Meadow Brook Hall in Rochester, Michigan.For a look that is always timeless, keep things refined and elegant by making a statement – without making a noise. This is a trend that is all about sidestepping current trends.

Focus on soft, delicate florals and romantic décor that gives the feeling of effortless elegance. Long tables with unique candle light and lightly patterned place settings help set the mood.

Hiring a wedding day painter or setting the scene with a vintage car can add to this aura of modern meets vintage. It’s more than an aesthetic, quiet luxury sets the mood of “old money” sophistication and romance.

Trend #2: Bright, Bold Colors

Your big day is no time to go small! Take on a vibrant array of fresh colors to liven up your ceremony and reception. From a colorful selection of bridesmaids’ dresses, to bright floral arrangements and table linens, couples are looking to add a splash of fun to liven up the occasion.

While some weddings stick to one statement color – aquamarine, lavender or emerald green will be very popular in the coming wedding season – and other celebrations adopt a full pallet of earth tones or pastels. Create your own signature style by embracing color at your celebration.

Trend #3: A Taste of Europe
