​The Top 7 Wedding Décor Trends You’re Going to See Everywhere in 2024

The right wedding décor can animate a setting, add personality to a blank canvas, and provide insight into your relationship. And while that latter point—creating a day that feels authentic to you—is a top priority, understanding popular styles and decorations will prevent your celebration from looking and feeling stale or overdone. In the wedding space, decorative elements are continuously evolving, and each year gives way to a new set of trends. For 2024, experts are predicting that innovative and bold decorations, colors, and designs will take center stage.

If you’re planning a wedding in 2024 but aren’t sure how to make your affair feel new and fresh, we asked the experts to give us the rundown on upcoming wedding décor trends. Based on their experience and insider knowledge, the pros are foreseeing groundbreaking aesthetics, unique color palettes, and statement-making decorations in the year ahead.

Palazzo-Inspired Aesthetics

Since jetting off to Italy for your vow exchange isn’t always practical or feasible, many couples are bringing the European country to their wedding design instead. In 2024, planner Allison Jackson of Pineapple Productions forecasts palazzo-inspired wedding décor, like manicured garden spaces, statement floors, rich fabrics, and frescoes. “While rooted in history, it’s also timeless,” Jackson explains. “It also celebrates at-home entertaining that is gracious and sophisticated but not fussy and overly formal.”

To bring this aesthetic to life, you can transform a tented reception space into a palazzo structure using a vinyl-printed dance floor; walnut wood tables set with Ginori china, embroidered linen napkins, blown glass goblets, and velvet menus painted with the scene; and antique chandeliers, according to Jackson.

Artistic Bohemian Styles

Planner Shannon Leahy predicts that another aesthetic will be a hit in 2024: bohemian elegance with an artistic flair. Instead of clean, congruous elements, this style is defined by merging unconventional details. The result? An unexpected and raw look. “There is a messiness to this style, where things aren’t so perfect and feel more authentic and real,” Leahy shares. If you appreciate art and fashion, Leahy recommends incorporating this design into your wedding. Some ideas are layering colorful geometric rugs that lead to a stark metal arch or lining your tables with rattan chargers and black glassware.

Celestial Motifs

While celestial themes aren’t a new concept in the wedding space, references to the sun, moon, planets, and stars will really pick up this coming year, according to Leahy. “The depth and meaning infused into every aspect, from the décor to the invitations, offers a unique and spiritual experience,” the planner says. Since this trend draws on the universe and astrology, spiritual couples or anyone who wants to celebrate their wedding in a meaningful way will gravitate toward this style.

Unexpected Color Schemes

Vibrant hues were a huge focus of 2023 nuptials, but in 2024, couples will mix unexpected shades together as a way to express themselves and create unparalleled settings. “It infuses a wedding with sentimental meaning and creates a deeper connection to the celebration for the couple and the guests alike,” Jackson reveals. The planner envisions soft, muted palettes featuring a bold pop of color or warm tones fused with cool ones for an interesting look.

Sustainable Decorations

The world is becoming more environmentally conscious, and wedding décor in 2024 will reflect this growing concern. Planner Eva Clark of Eva Clark Events anticipates that many couples will try to minimize waste and reduce their carbon footprint by throwing an eco-friendly celebration this year. This might look like thrifting pieces, renting décor items instead of buying them, using recyclable materials, arranging compostable place settings, distributing reusable favors, and opting for biodegradable confetti. Overall, couples will nix plastic, paper, and any other substance that guests tend to throw away.

Fruit-Focused Designs

This year, couples will use fruity accents on their big days. From oranges and limes to peaches and pineapples, these embellishments will bring a touch of color, texture, and fragrance to any wedding. “Fresh fruit really evokes the senses,” Clark says. Flanking your aisle with baskets of citrus fruits, scattering your tablescape with berries, or looking to lemons as place cards are all fair game.

Colorful Glassware

Translucent crystal glassware will always be timeless, but in 2024, colorful cups will make an appearance at wedding receptions. Planner Elana Walker of Elana Events notes that adding this item to your tablescape will bring an element of creativity and vibrancy to your post-ceremony party.
