      Top 20 Trending Wedding Decor Trends of 2024

      Staying ahead of the curve and truly relevant is crucial in the highly competitive wedding industry, where trends evolve every now and then. This also means that we need to brush up on our knowledge of current wedding decor trends. Let us take a look at some of the most popular trends this season and use them as inspiration for your wedding day decor to reflect your unique style.

      So below is a list of freshly picked wedding decor ideas curated by our wedding experts.

      Fruit-Centric Designs

      Fruity-filled accents have been picking up steam since the very beginning of the year. For example, small bowls filled with berries can serve as colourful and edible accents on each table. Opt for a fruit-infused water station by displaying large pitchers or beverage dispensers filled with water infused with slices of cucumber, strawberries, lemon, or mint for a refreshing and visually appealing drink option.

      You can also take inspiration from the natural colours of fruits for your wedding colour palette.

      Unexpected Colour Schemes

      While bold splashes of colour were all the rage in 2023, couples are now finding love with unexpected colour combinations. Modern couples are all about mixing and matching, finding ways to infuse the passion of the bride and groom into their big day. “They want the wedding designers to produce dramatic and stunning décor by finding the balance between pastels and lively tones,” Jack remarks, referring to the topic. A growing number of surprising colour schemes have been able to keep the heart open this year.

      While it may seem counter-intuitive at first, shopping at thrift stores, renting instead of buying decor supplies, and reusing materials can all be really eco-friendly.

      Zero-Waste Decor

      A new trend of zero-waste wedding decor has been gaining momentum, with couples asking their florist for waste-free alternatives. This includes endless options, such as using decor that your family already owns, looking for tables that might not actually require tablecloths,  and so much more.

      You could always choose to have a seating chart in lieu of place cards, edible cake decor, and sway-off smoke bombs. It’s an excellent choice to have your signage made of repurposed items.

      Vibrant Hued Glassware

      Look for glassware colours that reflect the season of your wedding. For instance, opt for warm, earthy tones like burnt orange and deep red for a fall wedding or fresh, bright hues like sky blue and lemon yellow for a spring celebration. And if you’re looking to create a soft and romantic ambiance, think of pastel glassware in the shades of blush pink, powder blue, mint green, and lavender.

      Create an eclectic and charming look by mixing and matching glassware in various colours, shapes, and sizes. Consider using different hues within a cohesive colour palette or sign up  for a rainbow assortment for a vibrant and playful vibe.


      Palazzo-Inspired Aesthetics

      The aesthetics of this decor style evoke the grandeur, elegance, and timeless beauty of Italian palaces and estates. Look for venues with ornate architecture, grand staircases, and lavish interiors to set the stage for a palatial wedding experience.

      Add a touch of glitz through tableware, candle holders, candelabras, picture frames, and decorative accents to add warmth and glamour to the reception space.


      Artistic Bohemian Styles

      The artistic bohemian style of the wedding decor is about creativity, free-spiritedness, and an eclectic mix of elements from various cultures and eras. Think jewel tones like deep purple, emerald green, and sapphire blue mixed with warm earthy tones like terracotta, mustard yellow, and burnt orange.

      Combine vintage rugs, macramé hangings, embroidered fabrics, and fringed throws for a tactile and visually interesting look.

      Curves and Waves

      This year, hosts and guests alike have loved the curved and wavy-themed elements of the wedding decor. Curvy and asymmetrical aisles, curvature-themed seating arrangement, and wiggly signage, are all great ideas to incorporate into the decor. You can also opt for wavy wedding cakes and decorations to add more character.

      Celestial Motifs

      This style has soared in popularity as a whimsical and ethereal theme for weddings and events. Celestial motifs evoke a sense of awe and wonder, symbolising the vastness of the universe and the mysteries beyond. Stars, moons, and galaxies are often associated with love, unity, and eternal bonds, making them perfect symbols for weddings.

      Ambient Lighting

      Paper lanterns are a budget-friendly and charming option for ambient lighting decor. Hang them in clusters from trees, pergolas, or tent ceilings to create a whimsical and festive atmosphere. Fill mason jars with string lights and place them along tables, shelves, or mantels for a cozy and enchanting glow.

      Greenery Accents

      Drape garlands of eucalyptus or ivy along the length of banquet tables or intertwine them with candles and floral arrangements for a cohesive and polished look. Mix various types of foliage, such as eucalyptus, ferns, ivy, and olive branches, for a beautifully natural and organic look. Greenery can also serve as a beautiful backdrop for vibrant blooms like roses, peonies, and dahlias.

      Metallic Disco Wedding Decor

      Are you buckled up for a dance floor with a disco ball for a disco-themed wedding? With retro trends making a major comeback this year, disco-themed weddings are one of them. 

      To furnish the space in style and adhere to the disco concept, go for modern chairs with metallic accents, velvet armchairs, or sleek leather couches. For an extra touch of glitz, try using metallic frames, candlesticks, or vases as centrepieces.

      Garden Art Florals

      We have always adored the flower décor at weddings. However, our wedding experts have noticed an uptick in sculptural flower arrangements this year. The goal of this decor is to draw attention by making a bold style statement.

      This season, instead of the traditional long flower vases, all the focus is on draping flowers from the ceiling, archways, and flowery walls. Whether they choose fresh, dried, or fake flowers, couples are free to use whatever they like.

      Embrace the beauty of simplicity on your special day with our minimalistic wedding decor concept.

      The minimalistic decor style from Symphony Events elevates every element, from sleek table settings with modern accents to ambient lighting that sets the mood with subtle sophistication. With this refined aesthetic, your wedding becomes a timeless celebration of love, where every detail speaks volumes in its simplicity.

      Exposed Wood

      The year 2024 has revealed exposed wood and wooden accents as one of the hottest trends. Couples this season are loving the rustic, woody vibes more than ever. Wooden accents used in the decor are giving off major organic vibes, hence adding the perfect touch of warmth to your ambience.

      People have even been opting for decor straight out of a barn, such as barrels, signage made out of imperfect barn doors, wood crates, and more of such rustic, vintage-styled decor.

      Residential- and Restaurant-Inspired Wedding Design

      Give in to the cosy and inviting ambience of a residential space by choosing a wedding venue that feels warm and welcoming. You can also emulate the lively atmosphere of a restaurant kitchen with an open kitchen concept for your wedding reception. Organise live cooking stations or chef’s tables to allow guests to engage with culinary experts and observe the fresh preparation of their meals.

      Highly Thematic Welcome Parties

      These are a fantastic way to kick off wedding festivities and set a different tone from the main event. For those looking to make a statement and add a dash of unexpected flair, highly thematic welcome parties are the perfect choice.

      For a more whimsical affair, you could think of hosting a vintage carnival complete with colourful tents, carnival games, and classic carnival fares like cotton candy and corn dogs.

      Flower-Packed Ceremony Decor

      This year, florals are sure to reign, and not in a subtle way. Bride-and-groom bouquets, flower crowns, floral arches, pathways, and flower-filled aisles are all the rage. Florals can also be used to create hanging installations or centrepieces.

      Ditching the Minimalist Wedding Decor – Maximalism

      Themes and features that couples are choosing for their wedding décor this year are healthy, rich, bold, and expressive. It has taken a long time for brides and grooms to recognise that weddings have traditionally been about extravagant decor and grandeur. 

      Maximalism at a wedding means going all out with bright and contrasting colours, patterns, and textures, as well as integrating different types of decor to make the space more visually interesting and layered. 


      With Extra Focus on the Bars

      Yes, this is an area that has received little attention in recent years, but that is going to change in 2018. Couples satisfy their guests’ hidden aspirations by erecting an imaginatively designed bar façade. Couples are satisfying the hidden aspirations of their guests. We will decorate this high-traffic reception room according to certain themes to make it visually appealing and lively.
