Three Wedding Trends for 2024

Celebrant Led Weddings

Wedding ceremonies led by celebrants are becoming more and more popular. They provide an intimate more personalised experience and can help you create your wedding vows which adds a real personal touch. Getting married with a celebrant allows you to embrace nature and marry indoors or outdoors and separates your legal paperwork from your wedding day, where you get married at the registry office for the legal side and then have a ceremony with a celebrant that allows you to hold your wedding where, when and how you want. Consider the celebrant's personality, appearance, and speaking style to see if they reflect your personality. Be sure to check in with your specific wedding location for any rules and regulations and think about asking the following questions.

  • How many weddings do you officiate in one day?

  • Have you worked at our chosen venue before?

  • Are you legally allowed to officiate weddings at this location?

  • Do you perform religious or civil ceremonies?

  • Can we write our own vows?

Retro Style Wedding Dresses

This year we see a shift to embracing more the ethos with sustainability in weddings and that means retro, vintage wedding dresses. Maybe found in a preloved bridal shop, thrift store, your mum, gran, or aunt's wedding dress, or maybe you see a vintage design you love that you have made from preloved fabrics either way this trend is on the rise. There are many styles to choose from and the price won't set you back too much. Here are some potential retro wedding dress trends for 2024

  • Victorian-Inspired Silhouettes: Embrace the romance of the Victorian era with wedding dresses featuring high necklines, long sleeves, and intricate lace detailing. Think delicate embroidery, sheer overlays, and dramatic trains that evoke a sense of timeless elegance with a modern twist.

  • Disco Glamour: Channel the spirit of the '70s disco era with shimmering fabrics, bold metallic accents, and statement-making silhouettes. Look for wedding dresses adorned with sequins, metallic threads, and glittering embellishments that capture the essence of Studio 54 glamour and decadence.

  • '90s Minimalism: Embrace the simplicity and understated elegance of '90s-inspired wedding dresses, characterized by clean lines, minimalist silhouettes, and sleek, figure-flattering designs. Consider satin slip dresses, minimalist column gowns, and sleek sheath dresses for a chic and contemporary take on retro bridal style.

  • Vintage-Inspired Lace: Lace has always been a timeless bridal staple, but in 2024, expect to see a resurgence of vintage-inspired lace wedding dresses with a nod to the past. Look for intricate Chantilly lace, scalloped edges, and delicate floral motifs that harken back to the romance of bygone eras.

  • Bohemian Crochet: Tap into the bohemian spirit with wedding dresses featuring crochet lace, macramé detailing, and artisanal handiwork. Opt for relaxed silhouettes, ethereal fabrics, and whimsical embellishments that capture the free-spirited vibe of boho-chic weddings with a retro twist.

Live Music Bands

Selecting your music and entertainment for your wedding is based on your tastes, your style of wedding, your budget, and the atmosphere you desire. When it comes to booking a live band, you may also consider different types of music for the ceremony and reception. So you may have acoustic folk duos for the ceremony and a live band playing a mix of musical vibes to suit all tastes for the reception.

Typically you would book your band about 10+ months before your wedding day. A live wedding band suits the rustic boho wedding style better than a DJ, but that's not set in stone and also depends on your budget.

Some questions to think about asking the bands you enquire with.

How long has the group played together?

How many weddings have you played at?

What are your wedding packages and pricing including overtime rates?

What type of sound equipment do you use?

What type of dinner, drinks, and green room requirements do you have?

The Pantone Colour of 2024 is Peach Fuzz, so how to incorporate this colour into a boho wedding theme: consider this gorgeous colour for your wedding day flowers, venue décor, bridesmaids' dresses, table styling, and wedding cake and stationery. By incorporating Pantone's Color of the Year 2024, Peach Fuzz, into your boho wedding theme, you can create a romantic and on-trend celebration that's brimming with warmth, charm, and natural beauty.
