  3. 2024 – Destination Wedding Trends

Written by Wendy Wharton

I don’t have a crystal ball, nor do I claim to know all things destination wedding.  However, I can provide you with popular color trends that are being observed in the wedding industry. Please note that trends change over time, and it is always a good idea to consult with a professional  destination wedding planner or conduct further research closer to your wedding date.


  1. Earthy and Natural Tones: Nature-inspired color palettes have been popular for weddings, and this trend is likely to continue. Shades of green, such as sage or forest green, combined with earthy neutrals like taupe, beige, or warm browns, can create a natural and organic atmosphere. Classic white to off-white tones makes this trend warm and inviting in every destination setting.


  1. Soft and Pastel Hues: Soft and romantic pastel shades have been a staple in wedding color palettes and are experiencing a real rise in popularity in tropical climes, dessert oasis and mountain rustic weddings alike. The real tug of blush pink, dusty blue, lavender, and light peach are timeless choices that can lend an elegant and ethereal feel to your wedding no matter where it takes place.


  1. Vibrant Jewel Tones: Bold and rich jewel tones can add a touch of opulence and drama to your wedding. Deep emerald green, royal blue, rich burgundy, or regal purple can create a luxurious and memorable ambiance. Drama and elegance play and dance the night away in your chic other-world destination wedding.


  1. Modern Metallics: Metallic accents have been increasingly popular in wedding color schemes. Gold, rose gold, and copper elements can bring a touch of glamour and sophistication to your wedding decor. With white-gold, silver, and the traditional look of modern gold adornments, a typical destination wedding becomes a stylish, glamorous, and posh event that will be remembered for years to come.


  1. Monochromatic Color Schemes: Opting for a monochromatic color scheme can create a visually striking and cohesive look. Shades of a single color, such as various tones of blue or shades of pink, can be incorporated into different aspects of your wedding, including the flowers, linens, and bridesmaid dresses. Don’t stop yourself at two or three shades, but go bold with this look and bring in six or more shades. This look lends itself to most destination wedding locations, and can be especially stunning when the colors chosen are reflected in the destination. Imagine tones of reds moving to browns and even darker set in the dessert.  Add a few stars, fairy lights, and soft music and you have a dinner reception that boasts of something out of the movies.


Remember that these are general trends and personal preferences should always take precedence. Feel free to explore different combinations and consult with a professional wedding planner or designer for more specific and up-to-date insights closer to your wedding date.
