Rockin’ Ramaley’s Top 5 Wedding Trends for 2024

In the ever-changing kaleidoscope of wedding trends, couples are actively seeking out new opportunities to add a touch of creativity and whimsy to their special day. Whether it’s putting a new twist on an old tradition or adding a touch of modern tech, these wedding trends are sure to take center stage in 2024. Let’s dive in!

Natural Outdoor Venues

Long gone are the days where weddings are confined to a ballroom or banquet hall, especially in the Lehigh Valley! From secluded forest glades to breathtaking vineyards, the Lehigh Valley area is home to several stunning venues immersed in nature.

Take Catalpa Grove for example. Open year-round, Catalpa Grove rests next to a creek and 10-acre lake. Towering pine and catalpa tress surround the outdoor ceremony space, serving as this venue’s namesake. All of your floral and rustic décor will fit right in amongst the woodsy backdrop. Perfect for those in search of an intimate yet spacious venue surrounded by the beauty of nature!

Interactive Elements

Photobooths have long been a beloved wedding reception must-have, but with this modern-age push for technology, couples and guests alike desire an upgrade to the traditional photobooth. Enter the interactive selfie stand!

This sleek photobooth is growing in popularity at weddings. With customizable graphic overlays, touch-to-start screen, digital props, and LED stand, it’s no surprise that couples can’t get enough of this booth! The best part? Not only is there a print option; guests can also text or email their photo to their cellphone instantly. Talk about the best of both worlds!

Intimate Ceremony and Reception

In an age where quality often outweighs quantity, intimate micro-weddings have emerged as a cherished trend from COVID days. Couples are opting for smaller guest lists, focusing on creating meaningful connections with their nearest and dearest.

A scaled down guest count means a more personalized experience, which is what we love to see! Whether it’s a cozy backyard gathering or a chic celebration at an intimate venue, micro-weddings are guaranteed to emphasize authenticity and love in its purest form.

Comfort Foods

Gourmet cuisine certainly has its place at weddings. There’s a reason it’s been in place for so many years! However, we can’t deny that there’s something about familiar favorites that warms your heart and brings a smile to your face.

Take a look at that hot pretzel bar at Nicole and Bill’s wedding on 10-7-2023 at Olde Homestead. With this childhood classic, their guests felt right at home! That’s just what comfort food does: creates a relaxed atmosphere to compliment the spirit of celebration.


A growing awareness of environmental issue means that couples are embracing sustainability as a guiding principle in their planning process. We have seen this manifested in several different ways. From paperless invites to biodegradable confetti, there are countless ways that you can reduce the ecological footprint of your wedding!

A HUGE way couples can accomplish this is by choosing a venue that puts sustainability first. Folino Estate, for example, is not only a gorgeous wedding venue, but also eco-friendly. Tons of fresh fruits and vegetables are grown on property, and these homegrown ingredients regularly make their way into Folino’s menu items.

These five wedding trends reflect the evolving preferences and values of modern couples. Today’s weddings are as diverse and unique as the couples who celebrate them, and we can’t wait to see these trends pop up in the 2024 wedding season!
