The start of a new year however means a whole host of new wedding trends for couples to get their teeth into. The question is – which will inspire you?

Celebrant-led weddings are in

When planning your wedding ceremony, there are two very traditional ways of making things official. Your wedding ceremony however can go beyond a religious service or registrar-led union…

We explored the role of the celebrant in our guide to humanist weddings, but, did you know that there are different types of celebrant to choose from too? We’ll let Hitched explain more:

“There are two types of celebrant you may have heard about, humanist celebrants and independent celebrants (also known as civil celebrants), and they cater to different couples. In the most basic terms, Humanists conduct weddings within the Humanist belief system. Independent celebrants conduct ceremonies independently from any belief system but will happily incorporate religious and spiritual elements into the ceremony.”

With personalisation still the key to enjoying the wedding day of your dreams, choosing a celebrant to lead the way in your wedding ceremony will ensure a unique twist to proceedings.

It’s all about the reception

It’s not just the wedding ceremony that’s in the spotlight during 2024. The average couple’s hopes and dreams for their wedding reception are getting bigger and more ambitious. That’s right, reception success will depend on so much more than a decent wedding playlist!

Couples marrying during 2024 are planning epic parties to mark their newlywed status, with receptions offering unique and memorable experiences for guests.

Multi-day celebrations are back…

Wedding weekenders are no new thing, but after the budget cuts many couples marrying in 2023 faced due to the cost of living crisis, they’re back for 2024. In fact, an increasing number of engaged couples are planning celebrations that span days to enjoy more time with their nearest and dearest, and mark this momentous occasion in style.

…but guest lists are getting smaller

Weddings may be getting longer but guest lists are getting smaller, with more and more couples embracing the micro wedding trend for 2024. Our intimate wedding package has been particularly popular in recent years, with couples wanting more personalised wedding days loving its all-inclusive value.

The devil is in the detail, especially when it comes to your bridal ensemble. Brides of 2024 are adding drama to their wedding outfits in so many ways, from their use of unconventional colours (pinks, yellows and blacks are set to be popular among brides marrying in summer 2024), quirkier drop waist designs, bridal separates, short veils and oversized bows making for truly captivating looks.

Bridesmaids are also getting in on the action, with black dresses, mismatched designs and even jumpsuits as top picks for summer 2024.
