As we step into the wedding season of 2024, there's a refreshing wave of trends that are reshaping the way couples celebrate their special day. While not every trend may resonate with everyone, I've handpicked five trends that have caught my eye, adding a unique touch to weddings this year. Hope you all enjoy and get some inspiration!

Intimate Gatherings:

One trend that stands out is the shift towards intimate gatherings. Couples are opting for a smaller circle of close friends, creating an atmosphere of warmth and genuine connection. Beyond the cost-saving benefits, these smaller weddings allow couples to spend quality time with each guest, fostering meaningful interactions that can be missed in larger events. I have personally attended these small gatherings, and it is definitely a game-changer! You are also able as a photographer to get some great genuine moments.

Unplugged Celebrations:

In a digital age where everyone is armed with a smartphone, it's heartening to see couples encouraging an "unplugged" celebration. Requesting guests to put away their phones during the ceremony not only ensures a distraction-free environment but also promotes genuine human connections. The focus shifts from capturing the perfect shot to being present in the moment. I cannot express to you how much I love this trend! I hope it is here to stay. It is so sad to me when I see people at a party or event and instead of being present, they are on their phones either live streaming, texting or scrolling on social media.

Wedding Day Content Creators:

A rising trend that caught my attention is the hiring of wedding day content creators. These professionals curate and share moments from the celebration on social media, allowing the couple and their guests to relive the magic without the constant need to document everything themselves. It's a seamless integration of social media into the day, leaving everyone to fully enjoy the festivities. If you told me 10 years ago, that an upcoming trend would be for couples to hire a social media creator to capture your wedding day, I probably would have laughed out loud. However, if you can swing it financially, I think this a such a cool way for your special day to be captured.

Audio Guestbooks:

While traditional written guestbooks have their charm, the audio guestbook trend adds a personal and auditory dimension. Guests can now leave heartfelt messages for the couple, recorded in their own voices. This unique twist allows the couple to revisit not just words but the emotions and tones that accompanied them, creating a timeless keepsake.

Timeless Black-and-White Palettes:

Breaking away from the vibrant and bold color schemes, couples are leaning towards the simplicity of black-and-white weddings. With subtle hints of silver or gold, this classic palette exudes sophistication and timelessness. It's a nod to the past while remaining eternally stylish. Something about the black and white palette that is just so appealing! It is simple yet so sexy! Love that this is a trend in 2024!


As we navigate through the wedding trends of 2024, these five unique elements stand out for their ability to infuse modern celebrations with a touch of elegance and authenticity. Whether it's the intimacy of smaller gatherings, the unplugged experience, curated social media content, audio messages, or classic color palettes, these trends promise to create lasting memories that extend far beyond the wedding day. Here's to hoping that these trends continue to shape the wedding landscape in the years to come.
