Not so long ago, I felt caged by customs as a wedding editor. With guest lists as long as Rapunzel’s hair, the brides I interviewed were often carrying too many weights at the same time. While the pandemic locked all of us behind closed doors, who would have thought that our Rapunzels' would eventually break free with their Charmings? 2023 was a year of personalized weddings. In 2024, couples are taking it up a notch, and “having fun” is at the core of everything.

Here's a Sneak Peek at the Top Wedding Trends for 2024


Best Wedding Dates for 2024 

Technology for Wedding Planning and Decoration

The 'Wedding Takeover by Technology' is a much-anticipated trend that we can’t wait to evaluate in 2024. It’s a year of experimenting with how to strike a balance between the human elements while wedding planners & designers ensure the use of technology to make wedding experiences more immersive and eco-friendly.

Growing demand for technology will be seen through the following trends: 

  • Projection/3D mapping 
  • Wedding planning online using apps like WWI and social media channels
  • Experimenting with technology within budget 
  • Drone shows instead of fireworks

Carnival Themed Weddings

Searches for Carnival Themed Weddings have grown by 53% (Search data sourced from Semrush comparing search volume in India from Aug 2022 to Aug 2023)

Ekta Saigal Lulla shares different types of unique ideas to explore, “To plan a carnival theme, you need to understand the pulse of your client - what kind of carnivals will they connect with? We have planned weddings with carnival themes like the retro circus carnival, Cirque du Soleil, black and white carnival, enchanted carnival, run-of-the-mill carnival, and more. When you're doing something thematic, the costumes and the color themes are very important. Ambitainment and emotional catering also play a key role in building this theme.”

First Dance Ritual

Our NewlyWed survey done in 2023 shows that 20% of Indian couples surveyed had followed the global trend of a First Dance during their wedding. 

Pro Tip: Let Bollywood, Sufi, or other traditional themes rule the pre-wedding sangeet night and save a ballroom dance for the couple’s first dance for their post-wedding reception or cocktail night. Add a couple's voiceover, or get a song custom-made to make this performance truly personal.

Mermaid Lehenga 

Bridal Fashion - Tarun Tahiliani

Searches for Mermaid Lehenga have grown by 105% (Search data sourced from Semrush comparing search volume in India from Aug 2022 to Aug 2023)

Look what’s back in fashion’s recurring cycle - the mermaid lehenga. Quintessential and voluminous lehengas will continue to reign for the main wedding day bridal look, but I forecast mermaid lehenga skirts with high slits taking over the endless pre-wedding events and parties. The new-age bride will be seen wearing eclectic fish-cut lehenga styles for their pre-wedding events and dazzling engagement nights. Gowns can become passé for pre-wedding parties and might only be seen for thematic engagement nights or reception parties.
