2023 is coming to and end and that means my mind is fully on the new year! 2024 is going to be the biggest and best year for CLP yet! As I reflect on this past year, I can’t help but think about what I hope to see in the future. This is by no means an exhaustive list and is 100% based on my opinion alone…but I thought it would be fun to share! These are a few of the wedding trends I would really love to see (and hopefully capture) in 2024!!
1. Wedding Party First Looks
This has been one of my favorite first looks of all time and I sincerely hope more of my couples choose to do this! Having a first look with your wedding party is so incredibly special! These are some of the closest people to you and, to be honest, they tend to have the sweetest reactions! Even for couples deciding against their own first look, this one is a must have!
2. Food/Drink Trailers
Also not a “new concept” but one that has certainly been picking up steam lately! Food trucks and trailers are getting incredible diverse and a lot of them look classy (and aren’t rainbow colored like the old school ones). Everything from Coffees to Cocktails and all types of cuisine are available. I love how personalized this make things AND it tends to help address a lot more dietary restrictions than typical caterers can!!
3. Unique Wedding Dresses/Reception Dress Changes
This is by no means a “new” trends but it is one that I adore and would love to see more of next year! White/Ivory dresses are gorgeous. I mean, I had one myself! There is just something so fun about a colored wedding dress moment that I can’t get enough of! Thinking you want something unique but are afraid to stray from tradition? This is where the idea of a dress change for the reception comes into play!! There is no right or wrong way to do it as long and you love it!!
