One of the most popular weddings trends of 2024 is sustainability. From wedding invitations going digital or printing invites and wedding stationary on beautiful recycled paper with vegetable based inks, to choosing eco friendly wedding favours like seed bombs or local products such as honey or mini bottles of homemade tipples.
Many couples have been researching caterers who source their ingredients from local suppliers, to keep their dining food miles as low as possible. there are a whole host of caterers who we frequently work with, who put a huge emphasis on foraging seasonal ingredients and supporting their local food producers.
As for our structures, our beautiful wedding tipis and sailcloth marques are very eco friendly. The wooden tipi poles are slow grown in sustainable forests in Northern Sweden and the canvasses for our wedding tipis and sailcloth marquees are manufactured for long term use and our suppliers also offer a repair service for all their canvases to ensure longevity to help the environment.
Film and Wedding Photography
Wedding content creators are growing in popularity, to help keep those treasured memories of your special day alive forever!
Wedding photography is super important for your big day and choosing the right photographer for you is so important. I would definitely recommend having a look at our Real Weddings page and flicking through the albums, to find a photography style that suits you. We list all our wedding photographers information on these wedding albums, so they are a great tool when you’re doing your wedding planning!
Videographers are another beautiful way to remember your big day. They create such beautiful and emotive wedding videos showing a candid, real time take of your wedding day. You cant always be in every place all at once… but somehow, they can! So it gives you a great way to look back on your big day and see how much fun all your guests were having at your wedding.
Drone footage is a highly sought after addition to your wedding content team, especially when your tipi or sailcloth marquee is situated in such a beautiful wedding venue! From sweeping over the lake towards your stunning tipis, or flying through the forest and finding your magical sailcloth marquee, this breath-taking footage will be sure to impress your guests and will be a great addition to your wedding videos. You can even fly them around your structures, have them ‘walk up the aisle’ with you and capture some aerial wedding photos of you and your guests! Very versatile!
Wedding weekends are definitely on the rise. People are keen to make their wedding the gift that keeps on giving!
Our sailcloth marquees and tipis are perfect for a wedding weekend! If you have a venue with accommodation, why not have your wedding on the Saturday, then have a post wedding BBQ on the Sunday with all your guests who are staying over? Or if you’re hiring a caterer for your breakfast, why not have your first breakfast as a married couple in your tipis or sailcloth marquee and make the most of your booking.
Alternative Wedding venues and Decorations
Outdoor weddings were a necessity a few years ago, but they continue their popularity as they are so versatile and a great way to have your wedding your way!
So treat our sailcloth marquees and tipis as your blank canvas and create your own wedding masterpiece.
Colours for 2024
Classic whites and nudes will ALWAYS be popular, and look stunning against the canvas of our sailcloth marquees and tipis, but 2024 will be bringing a pop to join the party! Think vibrant corals, electric blues, and vivid yellows.
Ceiling displays will be increasingly popular and we can help you with this by supplying our floral hoops and Edison chandeliers, which you can be decorate with floral or foliage garlands (don’t forget your pop of colour) or you can hang beautiful colour ribbons to create a bit of drama and a beautiful focal point inside the structures!
Also keep on the look out for the retro style wedding style, which is also being highly searched online.
Food and Drink Trends
‘Sharing is caring’ at your wedding, is looking very on trend for 2024. Now we are used to mingling with our friends and family again, trends are looking like couples are making the most of this by selecting sharing platters and buffet styles, which are looking very popular for 2024 wedding catering.
Dessert tables, so your wedding guests can pick and choose what they like the look of (or try a little bit of everything) are going to be very popular, as well as sharing starters like charcuterie boards or mezes. Just make sure everything is well labelled so any allergies are catered for!
Personalised couple’s cocktails are also very, very popular for 2024 wedding trends, which I absolutely love! With each member of the couple picking their favourite cocktails and celebrating with a cocktail hour for their guests.
Traditional toasts are being spiced up by incorporating bespoke cocktails and shots for your guests to enjoy!
Champagne towers are also on the up! Definitely best to try this early on in the running order of your wedding celebrations!
Following wedding trends is a great way to help make decisions about your own wedding. Sometimes your options can seem endless, but sticking to the current trends can help to point you in the right direction and help narrow down those options and bring everything together for you in a nice, neat and unique wedding package.
We hope that this has helped with your 2024 wedding planning!
