As 2023 winds down, we’re excited to head into a beautiful season of winter weddings and 2024 wedding trends!

Get ready to be dazzled and inspired: Without further ado, here are the top 2024 wedding trends, revealed!

  1. Bold and Vibrant Color Palettes

Say goodbye to muted tones! One of the first 2024 wedding trends we’re seeing is embracing bold and vibrant color palettes. Couples are opting for rich hues like hot pink, emerald green, marigold, and royal blue to add a touch of drama and personality to their celebrations. These vivacious colors can be incorporated in the bridesmaids’ dresses, wedding florals, table linens, and the wedding cake. By infusing these bright colors into their wedding, 2024 couples want to make a statement with their design, ensuring that their big day is uniquely their own and truly unforgettable.

At our outdoor wedding venue, Celebration Gardens, our botanical gardens are the perfect backdrop for your bold wedding! The naturally colorful flora and landscaping offer built-in wedding décor that will enhance any celebration.

Our neutral and elegant event spaces also allow your chosen wedding colors to shine and really pop! Our classic white Wedding Gazebo can be draped in multi-colored fabric swags or dressed with bold floral sprays. You can even draw inspiration from our botanical gardens by lining the aisle with colorful wildflowers! The possibilities to add your personal touch to your wedding design are endless with our versatile event spaces.

  1. Vintage Touches

With a wave of nostalgia prevalent in our culture today, it’s no wonder that vintage details are making a comeback at weddings as one of the next 2024 wedding trends! For the new year, this takes the shape of vintage-inspired sweetheart cakes. We’ve been seeing many couples cut this heart-shaped, vintage cake for their cake cutting photos and then take it home with them afterwards. They then choose to serve their guests pre-sliced sheet cake or have a full dessert bar!

Another vintage touch we’ve loved seeing our couples incorporate is wearing their mom’s wedding dress for the reception! Many brides have been modifying their mom’s original wedding dress to be a more modern, and usually shorter, version. They’ll get to wear their dream dress for the ceremony and then change into their mom’s dress after cocktail hour. Oftentimes, they’ll keep this a surprise from their mom until the day-of when they unveil it, similar to a wedding first look. This sweet gesture creates an emotional and sentimental moment that your mom will cherish forever, not to mention it makes for great photos!

  1. Tech-Savvy Celebrations

Embracing technology is a trend that’s here to stay and in fact, it keeps evolving and advancing just as the technology in our society does. As one of the top 2024 wedding trends, couples are finding innovative ways to use technology to make their guests’ experience smoother and entertain them. Wonderful examples of this include a high-tech photo booth or a drone show. Drone shows are the new fireworks, as hundreds of drones light up the night sky, forming different shapes, like a wedding ring, the couple’s names, or a heart. Hopping on this trend early will ensure that this is a total “surprise-and-delight” moment for all your guests!

We’re also seeing audio guest books on the rise! Couples will have a vintage rotary phone that has been specially programmed to record messages on. Throughout the cocktail hour and reception, guests will have the chance to leave the newlyweds a customized audio message that the couple can then treasure forever.

Here at Celebration Gardens, we have the perfect spot within our botanical gardens for this audio guest book setup! Did you know that on property, we have a vintage British phone booth that was brought over from England? With its iconic red hue and glass windows, our couples love to capture photos with it and it now makes the ideal location for your audio guest book!

  1. Unique, Experiential Entertainment

One of the next 2024 wedding trends is unique, experiential entertainment. In addition to having a DJ or live band, couples are now choosing to bring in additional entertainment options for their guests, like live painters or sketch artists. These creative vendors can produce a hand-drawn or hand-painted portrait of guests right there on the spot, providing a fun souvenir for them to take home.

Live painters will even create a full painting during your wedding! Your loved ones will enjoy watching the painting come to life over the course of your wedding festivities and afterwards, you’ll have a one-of-a-kind custom creation to hang in your home.

Just imagine a painting of you and your new spouse dancing among our beautiful botanical gardens as the sun sets. There couldn’t be a more picturesque backdrop for your wedding painting. It’s like our Orlando wedding venue was made for these 2024 wedding trends!

  1. New Traditions

While 2024 weddings are loving vintage touches, some new traditions are also in the making! For instance, in the new year, you’ll start to see more and more seated wedding parties at the ceremony. Instead of the bridesmaids and groomsmen standing next to the couple at the altar, they’re beginning to sit in the first row of chairs. This allows the focus to be solely on the couple and their nuptials, making the ceremony that much more sacred.

2024 couples are also bringing new meaning to the wedding dress code! Gone are the days of the traditional options like “Semi-Formal” or “Black Tie.” Alternatively, couples are asking for more specific attire, like requesting that their loved ones all wear pink to the wedding. This is one of the most fun 2024 wedding trends that helps reinforce the wedding color palette and theme, and makes for stunning pictures.

  1. Sustainable Weddings

Something that never goes out of style is being sustainable! Sustainable weddings continue to gain popularity, as the younger generations focus their attention on being eco-friendly. For 2024 couples, this can look like using fewer paper products and booking wedding vendors who are also committed to sustainable practices.

Our team at Celebration Gardens has been dedicated to being environmentally friendly for years. In fact, this is one of our core values, as we strive to recycle, use compostable disposables, and conserve energy. Our sister catering company, John Michael Events, even partners with O-Town Compost for every event they do, transforming any food waste into fresh soil that can be used in the community.

Our venue and services are ideal options for couples who want to celebrate their love while minimizing their environmental footprint.
