It's been an incredible year for celebrity weddings. We watched Sofia Richie marry Elliot Grainge in a stunning French destination wedding that took the internet by storm and put "quiet luxury" on the map. Beanie Feldstein and Bonnie Chance swapped vows at a camp-themed wedding in upstate New York. Simone Biles and Jonathan Owens shocked fans by hosting a surprise courthouse ceremony before a sequel ceremony in Mexico. Chrishell Stause and G Flip and Lukas Gage and Chris Appleton ran off to Sin City for surprise vow swaps, while Taylor Hill wed Daniel Fryer amid the Colorado mountains. Off the heels of so many beautiful nuptials, we're about to see an exciting new era of celebrity wedding trends in 2024.

From buzzy new aesthetics to themed weekend getaways, the latest celebrity wedding trends are fresh, fun and oh-so-romantic. Since we've always got our finger on the pulse of what's trending in the industry, we've compiled eight celebrity wedding trends that are going to be huge next year. Whether you're actively planning your big day or you're a pop culture aficionado who loves love, these rising concepts will leave you feeling inspired and #influenced...and actively refreshing your IG feed for the next big wedding.

Quiet Luxury

We can't kick off a list of the biggest celebrity wedding trends without mentioning the quiet luxury craze. Sofia Richie's South of France nuptials catapulted this viral phrase into the zeitgeist, and we've only just seen the beginning. At its core, quiet luxury weddings are all about minimal elegance. While Richie's wedding wasn't "quiet" by any means, fans were captivated by her timeless aesthetic, defined by lush florals, bright and airy colors, minimal makeup, and a sleek wedding wardrobe.

From April on, countless brides were inspired by Richie's style. In August, TikTok influencer Emily Mariko had her own quiet luxury wedding in California. Ahead of her September wedding in Colorado, Bachelor in Paradise star Caelynn Miller-Keyes told The Knot she was "really gravitating towards the 'quiet luxury' trend," saying, "It's the Sofia Richie, Meredith Blake aesthetic." Given its near-immediate impact on the industry, we predict that we'll see even more celebs put their own spin on the quiet luxury aesthetic in 2024.

Camp Weddings

Quiet luxury aside, one of the more creative celebrity wedding trends is the camp wedding. Consider actress Beanie Feldman and her wife, Bonnie Chance. In May, the couple hosted a camp-themed wedding at Cedar Lakes Estate in New York, inspired by their own cherished summer camp memories. Toward the end of the year, Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert hosted a similar wedding with rustic camp vibes in Meredith, Colorado.

Destination wedding planner Kelsey Connely of Downey Street Events says that camp weddings have become increasingly attractive to couples who want to prioritize the guest experience. "Couples no longer want a single-day event where guests immediately go their separate ways following the wedding," she explains. "People want to give their guests an 'experience,' and oftentimes, summer camp style weddings at a luxury lodge or campground can provide that."

With the opportunity to host meals, organize games, and connect over fireside chats, Connely says camp weddings allow the newlyweds to connect with their loved ones on a deeper level during what is typically a busy weekend without much free time. "While nostalgia and escapism may play a role in the upswing of summer camp-themed weddings, I think it's more likely that couples want to provide a true bonding experience amongst their guests in a more relaxed setting."

Neck Scarves

We first saw this bridal accessory trend take off in 2022. Celebs like AnnaSophia Robb and Georgia Fowler stunned in wedding dresses accented with a chic neck scarf—and the trend has only grown from there. This year, even more famous brides like Emily Mariko and Hannah Godwin donned a slinky neck accessory for their wedding weekends, indicating that this style will only continue to rise in popularity next year.

According to Hope LaVine, Godwin's bridal stylist, a scarf served as the perfect finishing touch to her Parisian rehearsal dinner ensemble. "Hannah's whole vision for her wedding fashion was 90s supermodel," LaVine says. When it came time to pick an outfit for the whimsical garden party, they landed on a strapless lace dress from Undone by Kate. "The original design actually didn't include a neck scarf. When Hannah tried the dress on for the first time, we loved it but both agreed a scarf would be the perfect touch. Kate worked overtime to make one just before we left for Paris, and it truly completed the look."

Looking ahead to next year, she predicts that more designers will experiment with this modern silhouette. "Neck scarves are going to be so popular because of their versatility," she explains. "We've seen the rise of separates (like snap-on sleeves and jackets) and convertible dresses, so scarves are essentially an extension of the separates craze."

Western Themes

Complementary to the camp wedding is the Western wedding. Plenty of famous couples have jetted out to the great American West to swap vows in recent years, signifying a trend that Connely says is on track to replace the rustic wedding aesthetic that once took Pinterest by storm. "We'll continue to see the modern ranch-style look that has been so popular over the last couple of years," she says. "This is very different from the farmhouse rustic style we saw in the mid-2010's. There's more of an emphasis on Western design, with lodges and ranches becoming popular wedding venues."

Luxe markets like Jackson Hole, Park City and Aspen have become highly sought-after destinations thanks to celebs who choose to get married there, like Taylor Hill and Daniel Fryer, and Caelynn-Miller Keyes and Dean Unglert.

The Delayed Hard Launch

One of the most exciting aspects of getting married is sharing the happy news online—but this year, we saw more celebs opt for the "delayed hard launch." In other words, more couples are opting to enjoy a few days, weeks or even months of newlywed bliss in private before sharing the news with the world. Chrishell Stause and G Flip, Chris Evans and Alba Baptista, and Milo Ventimiglia and Jarah Mariano all participated in this new celebrity wedding trend. As much as we love to see A-list wedding photos as soon as they hit the 'gram, we can't help but love the fact that more celebs are prioritizing their privacy too.

Storytelling Through Fashion

A wedding dress is no longer just a dress. One of the biggest celebrity wedding trends we've seen recently is storytelling through fashion. From Hailey Bieber's veil emblazoned with the phrase "'Till Death Do Us Part" to Sophia Bush's custom floral print gown inspired by her home state, A-list brides are pushing the boundaries and infusing their attire with heartfelt meaning—a trend that Pnina Tornai says is here to stay. "What's amazing in bridal is that the sky's the limit," she tells us. "A dress is a dress, but I think it's important to insert a message in everything you do."

The prolific designer's latest collection of wedding dresses, which is available exclusively at Kleinfeld, features thoughtful touches like veils embroidered with phrases, detailed lace, dimensional flowers and ornate embellishments, all of which allow brides to tell their own story. In 2023, we've seen similar styles from actress Joey King, who wore a botanical 3-D Oscar de la Renta gown, and influencer Andrea Camila, whose dress was inspired by the flowers of her venue—and there's no doubt we'll see more of this in the coming year. Emphasizing the importance of selecting an outfit with significance, Tornai says, "Your dress is not just a dress. It's the dress you'll remember forever."

Coordinated Dress Codes

In an effort to make wedding photos pop, we predict that more celebrities will request color-coordinated guest dress codes. Hannah Godwin and Dylan Barbour's wedding is a prime example of why this rising celebrity wedding trend works so well. The majority of the couple's guests wore black or neutral attire, allowing the bride's white gown and corresponding white florals pop against the historic chateau venue. The final result creates photographs that are visually stunning.

Tech in Weddings

Shortly after Dylan Sprouse and Barbara Palvin wed in Hungary, it was revealed that the actor wore an earpiece to have the bilingual ceremony translated in real-time. This unique use of technology allowed the groom to actively connect with and understand his wife's native language and wedding traditions. While we don't necessarily predict we'll see more couples using earpieces during their nuptials, we do think more stars will get creative with how they incorporate technology into the big day—and celebrity wedding planner Lisa Lafferty agrees.

"Design-driven technology, such as LED walls and drone shows, is currently all the rage," she tells us, noting that, when done well, this sort of boundary-pushing creativity can leave a lasting impact. "There's a fine line between cool aesthetic technology and the ones that make it feel impersonal."
