“It’s not just about selecting flowers; it’s about creating moments and memories.”

As wedding designers, we are constantly on the lookout for new wedding trends and ideas to incorporate into our clients’ special day. This year, we are thrilled to see that the spring/summer wedding trends in Europe are all about embracing colour and mixing textures. We are excited to share some of the key elements that will make your 2024 wedding truly stand out.

2024 Wedding Trend: Seasonal Florals

Embracing the vibrant tapestry of nature, this year’s trend breathes life into weddings with an enchanting palette of seasonal florals. Imagine walking down an aisle lined with the vibrancy of peonies, their petals softly rustling in the breeze, or dining under a canopy of roses and dahlias, their colours mingling to create a feast for the eyes. As wedding designers, we find immense joy in curating these natural elements to craft a setting that is both elegant and deeply personal.


Incorporating flowers that are in season not only ensures the freshest blooms but also pays homage to the beauty of the time of year. A spring wedding might celebrate the beauty of tulips and hyacinths, while a summer soirée could feature the full-bodied fragrances of gardenias and lilies. The key is in the colour – a carefully chosen spectrum that reflects the couple’s personality while enhancing the natural setting. Whether it’s the soft pastels of early spring or the bold hues of summer’s peak, each choice weaves a layer of intimacy and charm into the day.

But it’s not just about selecting flowers; it’s about creating moments and memories.

A beautifully arranged bouquet becomes a piece of art in the bride’s hands; table arrangements transform ordinary settings into lush landscapes of warmth and celebration. Each floral choice tells a story, from the first bloom chosen to the final petal placed.

Dare to be different by mixing in unexpected elements for each guest – a sprig of lavender for a touch of whimsy, or a branch of olive for a symbol of peace and abundance. These thoughtful details not only add depth to your floral arrangements but also invite conversation from your guests.

2024 Wedding Trend: Fusing Florals and Fruits

Embarking on the journey of wedding planning opens up a world of creativity and uniqueness, allowing us to weave together elements that traditionally might not be paired. This year, we’re pushing the boundaries further by creating a fusion of florals, fruits, and vintage charm, transporting your guests to a whimsical realm of romance and nostalgia.

Picture this: tables adorned with cascading arrangements of soft, fragrant blooms, punctuated with the bright, cheerful pops of citrus fruits, and the deep, romantic hues of berries. These aren’t just decorations. They are conversation starters, elements that tell a story of love, freshness, and the beauty of life coming full circle. The addition of fruits not only brings a unique twist to the floral arrangements but also adds surprise and delight for your guests. It’s a celebration of nature’s bounty, combining the aesthetic appeal of flowers with the vibrant, life-affirming presence of fruit.

2024 Wedding Trend: Tapestry of Textures

In the realm of wedding design, weaving together a tapestry of textures is key to painting a masterpiece.

Each fabric, colour, and element contributes to the rich and vibrant canvas of your special day. Drawing inspiration from nature, art, and personal style, let’s explore how to craft a space that reflects your love story.

From sumptuous silk ribbons to delicate lace, the choices are endless. Consider the mood you wish to evoke – is it an ethereal garden affair or a glamorous soirée under the stars? Incorporating different textures like velvet, chiffon, and linens add depth to your décor, transforming your venue into a sensory experience.

Colours are the palette with which you paint your wedding day dreams. Whether you opt for soft pastels, bold jewel tones, or timeless neutrals, harmonizing hues can elevate your design to new heights. Experiment with contrasting shades and unexpected pops of colour to infuse your space with personality and charm.

2024 Wedding Trend: Stationery That Starts Conversations

When it comes to setting the tone for your wedding, few elements are as powerful as your stationery. From save-the-dates to thank you cards, each piece serves as a preview of the magic to come. Let’s delve into the art of choosing fonts, colors, and themes to create stationery that sparks conversations.

2024 Stationary Wedding Trends

Fonts are the voice of your stationery, conveying the mood and personality of your celebration. Whether you’re drawn to elegant script, modern sans-serif, or whimsical hand-lettering, selecting the right font sets the stage for your entire design. Consider pairing complementary fonts for a polished look that captures the essence of your love story.

Wedding Stationary

A cohesive theme ties your stationery together, creating a seamless narrative that unfolds with each piece. Whether you’re embracing a rustic-chic aesthetic, a vintage-inspired vibe, or a modern minimalist approach, incorporating consistent motifs, patterns, and imagery reinforces your wedding’s unique style and personality.

But stationery is more than just paper – it’s an experience. Consider interactive elements like wax seals, ribbons, or embossed details to add tactile interest and delight your guests. And don’t forget about the importance of clear and concise wording. Ensure every invitation, RSVP card, and program is as informative as it is beautiful.

Ultimately, your stationery is a reflection of your love story. It’s a tangible expression of the journey you’re about to embark on together. So take the time to curate a collection that speaks to your hearts, ignites conversation, and sets the stage for a celebration that will be remembered for a lifetime.

As we dive into the 2024 wedding season, let’s embrace the opportunity to mix, match, and create with florals, fruits, and materials. It’s about more than just planning a wedding; it’s about crafting an atmosphere that reflects the depth, and richness of your unique love story.
