With 2024 just around the corner, we are talking about up and coming wedding trends for the next year! The wedding industry is constantly changing and couples are embracing alternative and unconventional wedding trends that reflect their unique personalities and values. From wedding attire to photography, the upcoming year is sure to be full of creativity and individuality in the world of weddings. Let’s explore the top alternative wedding trends that are set to make waves in the coming year.
Artistic Photography and Videography
In 2024, the world of wedding photography and videography is becoming even more important. Couples are drawn to wedding photographers and videographers that specialize in capturing the raw, and unscripted moments of their special day. Rather than focusing on perfectly posed and composed shots, the emphasis is on the emotional and candid moments throughout the day. This artistic approach to wedding photos and videos allows couples to relive the genuine emotions from their big day.
One trend that is becoming ever so popular is blurry wedding photos, once deemed as unconventional, blurry photos are now an intentional choice by couples. The trend of blurred photos produces a dreamlike quality that showcases the energy and emotion of the day.
Customized Wedding Attire
2024 is all about couples embracing their individuality and this will definitely be shown through their attire on their wedding day. Don’t be surprised if couples step away from the traditional wedding attire and explore the world of customized wedding fashion. Expect to see brides choosing colored wedding dresses that match their personality or opting for an alternative to a dress, grooms in custom and unique suits, and a wedding party in mix-matched outfits showing their individuality while still sticking to the vision of the bride and groom.
Unique Food and Drink Options
Food and drink options are becoming more interactive than ever. Couples are offering creative options such as build-your-own taco bars, craft cocktail stations, dessert tables, food trucks, and charcuterie boards. With so many options for your wedding day, it’s a great way to add your personalized touch and make your day truly unforgettable.
DIY and Handcrafted Details
Couples are increasingly drawn to adding personalization to their wedding day through DIY and handmade details. From handcrafted wedding decor to personalized signage and unique wedding favors, these DIY and handcrafted details add a sense of authenticity to the celebration. With help from platforms like Stickermule, couples can easily bring their creative visions to life. Stickermule offers customized stickers as a fun wedding favor or labels and decals for creating seating charts or invitations.

This trend goes beyond traditional bouquets, embracing a maximalist approach to floral design that leaves no corner untouched.
