by Stephanie Yankova

You and your loved one have finally decided to tie the knot – congratulations! Have you chosen a theme yet? I hope not, because we’ve got some exciting ideas that will get your groove on!  If last year’s celebrations were all about opulence, glitter galore, and being bigger, brighter, and bolder, the 2024 wedding trends are drawing inspiration from a time when none of that mattered – the 70s. Wildflowers, feathered hairstyles, vintage dresses, film cameras, home-cooked food, and a busy disco dance floor all come together to give you the most heart-warming, non-traditional nuptial of your dreams!

The Biggest 2024 Wedding Trends

There’s one day in your life when you get to express yourself in a boastful manner and get away with it, and that’s your wedding! This is the time when you can unleash your full creative potential and build your own micro-universe where, for a split moment, everything revolves around you! Of course, you’d want it to be fun, exciting, and memorable, maybe even a little extravagant. And what better way to do that than to emerge yourselves in the magic of a 70s-inspired disco party? Just like Earth, Wind, and Fire sing “Let’s groove tonight, share the spice of life”!

Extravagant Cakes

Out with the traditional white frosting cakes, in with the quirky, colorful, and odd-shaped sculpture-esque gâteau! This is your time to express your vibrant personality and breathe some character into the most awaited dessert during one of the most special celebrations of your life! This multi-textured extravagant sweet delight was inspired by the recent “Daisy Jones & The Six” series, which pays homage to Fleetwood Mac – arguably one of the most influential bands of the 70s.

Boho Meets Disco

The two most monumental aspects of the 70s are without a doubt the hippie movement and the disco. When you marry these two together, you are met with a unique celebration of the grounding and earthy feel that comes from the nature-derived and inspired elements, and the liveliness and excitement that’s emulated through the disco balls and flashing lights! To put an emphasis on the vintage aspect of the atmosphere, use tonal palettes in shades of brown, red, or even blue. Since there is a lot going on decor-wise, this approach to the colors will help create a tangible unison.

Vintage Tablescape

Curating the table setting is probably one of the most stressful elements of the whole process of putting together a wedding, especially if you’re doing it by yourself. In 2024, we’re ditching all the fine china, silk napkins, crystal glassware, and grand floral arrangements. Instead, we’re opting for vintage – thrifted mismatched glasses, handpicked wildflowers, simple non-pretentious plates that you won’t feel guilty about using on a day-to-day basis, and your grandma’s knitted lace tablecloth.

Candid Photos on Film

Your wedding is a day you will want to remember, which is why it’s so important to capture every moment in the most authentic way possible. Just a few years ago, couples used to have whole photoshoots done by not one, but a whole team of photographers and videographers to make sure that they would be able to relive every moment of this magical event forever.

Nowadays, people are choosing a much more simple, but far more special and unique approach to commemorating their celebration of love. It’s no secret that in recent years we’ve been gravitating toward “vintage technology”- vinyl records, film cameras, we even revived the flip phone. This love for the past has definitely influenced our aesthetic views, which actually leaves so much room for creativity and experimentation. Allow your guests to take part in capturing your special moment by giving each of them a disposable film camera – trust me, you’ll value these little candid snapshots more than the most professional photoshoot you could possibly get!

Let Your Bridesmaids Pick Their Dresses

The 70s are wild, free-spirited, and colorful! It wouldn’t feel quite right to have a hippie wedding with bridesmaids who are dressed the same, would it? Instead, give them free rein to express themselves with a flamboyant outfit that truly reflects their personality! Of course, we don’t want to divert from the theme of the wedding, so make sure you give them some guidelines. And most importantly – choose something comfortable! After all, it is a PARTY and the lights go out with the last man standing on the dance floor.

Private Ceremony

Who needs a big venue when you have all your favorite people gathered together? Take an unorthodox approach and rent out your favorite restaurant, or host the ceremony at home! Turn your living room into a dance hall, the kitchen into a bar, put a DIY photo booth in the hallway, and dance the night away! Or maybe you want to be closer to nature? In that case, find a sweet little spot in a forest, or by a river, and decorate it to fit your creative vision. The most important thing is for you to feel comfortable and be able to enjoy your day to the fullest. As long as there are flowers, a disco ball, confetti, groovy music, and lots of dancing, any place can feel like a 70s time capsule!
