Eco-Friendly Wedding

Sustainability is where it’s at, and it’s actually a lot easier to have an eco-friendly wedding and elopement than one would think. Vendors are more than happy to share how they help the environment. Most of the time they will even advertise it on their website or social media page.  And if you are not sure, just ask. If they really are on the sustainable side they will chat your ear off about all the ways they help the environment. You can also look for locally sourced and organic food, reusable wedding décor, or try to incorporate as many nature-inspired elements to your wedding. Typically elopements are smaller and more intimate, therefore, it’s easy to use the natural landscape and scenery as your décor.


After COVID, this trend kind of stuck around, and I’m not mad about it. What is better than an intimate gathering of only your closest friends and family?  Not only is it budget friendly, but you also get to experience your wedding more than you would with a traditional wedding. There is no wondering if you forgot to talk to a guest, or get a photo with everyone. It’s less stressful and more enjoyable for you and your partner.

Personalized experiences

It’s easy to show your personality in every part of your life, from the car you drive to the type of chap stick you use (Burt’s Bees for the win!), so why not your wedding? More and more we are seeing people imbue their wedding with small personal details or décor to show off who they are. From stationary, to food and décor, even to little interactive elements that will have your guests feeling like they have just walked into your own little love bubble. So why not throw tradition away and make this day about you, your partner, and your union! Go get those berries for your center pieces.

Bold Colors and Statement décor

Subtle blues and green are out, and in comes the bold and vibrant color pallets. Think Vegas lights mixed with Nashville charm. This is another great way to infuse your personality into your elopement. And I am here for this trend. Adding a bold pop to your bouquet or applique flowers to your dress is a perfect way to bring this trend to your elopement. Beyond that, we are seeing couples using more color in their invitations and save the dates in addition to their color scheme.

Tech Tips

More and more we are seeing live streaming at weddings, after COVID this became really popular with all the travel restrictions in place. But like smaller weddings, this is not going away anytime soon, in fact, live streaming is only the tip of the tech trend iceberg you should expect to see in 2024. This is the perfect way to include all your friends and family into your elopement without worrying about finding the perfect venue for everyone to fit while still having your dream day.

Customizable wedding dresses.

Probably one of the hottest trends for 2024 is customizable wedding dresses. One dress with multiple different looks, yes please. Designers are creating dresses that can easily convert into a completely different look, perfect for the bride looking to wear something a little more comfortable post ceremony. As predicted wedding dress separates are becoming more and more popular, brides are combining different styles to make a dress that is perfectly customized to fit your personality and style.

Unique Venues

More and more people are searching for the next hot spot. We are seeing couples tying the knot in unconventional places. Whether you are seeking an adventure or just looking for something a little different for your wedding photos, look outside the box for your venue/location. This pairs perfectly with an elopement or a micro wedding!!

The short of it, make sure you create a day that both you and your partner will enjoy.
