The Hottest Vermont Wedding Trends for 2024 (and 2025!)

With each passing year, the realm of weddings takes a gentle shift, embracing new aesthetics, themes, and ideas that capture the imaginations of brides and grooms around the world. As we look at wedding planning in 2024 and beyond, it’s clear that the horizon holds a delightful array of trends waiting to be explored. Thanks to the stellar wedding professionals that make up the Green Mountain State, we have the inside scoop on Vermont wedding trends for 2024 (and beyond!) Keep reading for trends and ideas that may inspire your own celebration!

Love in Full Bloom: Colorful Florals Are Back!

When reaching out to Vermont wedding professionals, one of the most popular Vermont wedding trends for 2024 was more color, especially when it came to florals.

“I’m most excited about the return of colorful flowers in any way, shape, or form! In the past, we’ve seen a lot of neutrals, whites & ivories and I feel like a lot of couples in 2024 are leaning towards either a sunset vibe or at the very least, earthy tones such as cactus, spice & nutmeg! The growing trend of wildflower or garden party weddings is also a joy to see.” says Hallie of The Linen Shop.

Expect more pops of color in 2024 and beyond- whether through full-blown floral installations or in simple, bud vases.

Mixing It Up: Mismatched Bridal Parties

The trend toward mismatched bridal parties has been gaining momentum and continues to do so in 2024 for several reasons. Mismatched bridal parties offer a way to play with a broader color palette and integrate more complex or nuanced wedding themes. This can create a visually striking and dynamic aesthetic that is both modern and stylish, allowing for creativity and flexibility!

“One of the weddings I’m working this year will have bridesmaids wearing different colors, so I am making each bouquet for them different to go with their dress. We are doing pops of orange, pink, and coral, citrus. It’s going to be so fun!, says Adriane of Anaphora.

To keep things somewhat uniform, you can have your bridal party wear the same color, but mix things up with different shades, textures patterns or silhouettes. Allowing your bridal party to choose mismatched attire is a way to honor the budget, individual personalities, and preferences of each member, making the wedding more inclusive and personal. (And  because of that point alone, we think this is one trend that will be sticking around!)

I Saw The Sign: Unique Wedding Signage

When it comes to weaving in special details of your love story into your special day, your wedding signage, stationary or seating chart are all great places to start! Wedding guests and professionals love seeing the personal touches couples choose to showcase on their special day.

“There are endless possibilities when it comes to adding personal touches to your seating chart or place cards! I love hearing the story of how a couple met, where their favorite spot is, what careers they have, their passions and hobbies, etc., and creating something magical with those details. Signage and stationery pieces are the perfect details to showcase what makes you uniquely YOU on YOUR special day!, says Sierra , the wedding stationer extraordinaire behind Lettering With Love Co.

Something For Everyone: Things To-Do Beyond Dancing

While it’s easy to get caught up in the idea of a packed dance floor, the truth is that not every guest will necessarily be itching to show off their moves.  Many couples have been adding additional things to do during their wedding to accommodate this! Some examples are: cozy seating areas, fun photobooths, interactive food stations and lawn games or axe throwing.

“The Vermont wedding trend I’m seeing increasingly more of is couples wanting to extend their celebrations. Think: welcome parties the day before the wedding, after parties, or even farewell events before guests travel back home.” Talena of Premier Entertainment recently shared with us. “We’ve been incorporating more activities for events too, like lawn games, music bingo (a huge hit that can be tailored to your guests), photo booths, and La Hora Locas.”

Color Revelations: The Three Must-Have Color Schemes & Themes of 2024 (and 2025!)

Couples planning their 2024 and 2025 Vermont weddings can’t get enough of the following color schemes and theme trends:

Flower Power

Continuing the trend of bright and colorful blooms is wildflower or garden party-inspired celebrations! Beatrix of Blue House Bakeshop shared with us “I have a wedding cake trend that it’s still going strong in 2024 – the pressed flower cakes! They are perfect for wildflower and garden party themes.”

This theme is prevalent in the spring and summer months, allowing couples and their vendors to pull from Vermont’s natural beauty, and provide a romantic atmosphere. From whimsical escort cards and signage to beautiful tablescapes, and even through fashion- this trend continues to grow!

Earth Tones

Another trend that works almost every season, is the earth tone trend. (Think shades of green, terracotta, or nutmeg, mixed with cream and deep wood tones!) This earthy color palette provides lots of flexibility when it comes to decorating. Couples can keep things simple with lush greenery that pops against sunset-hued florals, or get even more rustic and detailed through linens, chargers, fruit or veggies in their decor, and more! Our state is home to so many historic and beautiful barns, making this trend the perfect match to compliment the charm of these quintessential Vermont venues.

Playing with Patterns

Last but not least, couples wedding planning are getting more creative with the patterns and textures used during their big day! “Embrace your style and incorporate that into the day, if you like bold, jewel tones bring those in.  If you LOVE velvet, add that to the look.  Looking for sunset colors? Bring those to the table.  Ask your vendors what they’ve seen work well and then use that as a jumping-off point with your style.  It is YOUR day, after all.” says Hallie of The Linen Shop.

Simple additions of texture or pattern through linens can create a big impact, offering a cost-effective way to add elegance and style. For example, using patterned table runners or textured centerpieces can significantly enhance the visual appeal without the need for other extensive decorations.  Additionally, the incorporation of patterns or textures can play a crucial role in emphasizing the wedding theme. A vintage-themed wedding might feature antique lace and soft, floral patterns, while a modern wedding might lean towards bold geometric shapes and sleek textures.

Keeping It Real: Crafting Your Dream Wedding by Following Your Heart

And there you have it, a little glimpse into the kaleidoscope of 2024 Vermont wedding trends out there! Before you dive headfirst into the Pinterest rabbit hole or start second-guessing your choices because they don’t fit the mold, remember this: your wedding day is all about you and your partner. At the end of the day, what truly matters is that your celebration feels right in your heart and mirrors the uniqueness of your love story. So, whether you decide to plan a large luxe wedding, say your I-dos in a candlelit backyard, or stick to something timelessly classic, make sure it’s a reflection of you. Your wedding day is your canvas; paint it in a way that makes your heart happy. Here’s to a wedding day that’s as wonderfully unique as you are!

A Rustic and Romantic Wedding Weekend in the Heart of Manchester, Vermont

Manchester, Vermont is an idyllic location for weddings, with its stunning natural beauty and quaint village streets providing the perfect backdrop for wedding celebrations. Its small-town feel only adds to the charm of this New England gem, making it a sought-after destination for couples seeking a romantic wedding in Vermont. We’re delighted to showcase the wedding of Megan and Christian, which was beautifully captured by Colette Kulig Photography and perfectly embodies the timeless elegance and warmth of this enchanting town!

Beginning Where the Story Started: A Rehearsal Dinner at Equinox Resort

Megan and Christian’s Manchester Vermont wedding weekend commenced at the very location where their journey towards marital bliss began. The site of Christian’s romantic proposal to Megan, the tranquil pond at Equinox Resort, was chosen for their rehearsal dinner as an ode to their past and a celebration of their future. Surrounded by their dearest friends and family, the couple (who have been sweat hearts since elementary school!) basked in the natural beauty of Vermont, setting the stage for the rest of the weekend. 

The Big Day: Laidback and Love-Filled

Just down the street from the Equinox Resort is the Inn at Manchester, which served as the perfect backdrop for Megan and Christian’s getting-ready moments, cocktail hour, and reception. Megan and her bridesmaids spent the morning being pampered by the team of Make Me Fab while enjoying champagne and mimosas in the Inn’s bridal suite, while Christian and his crew hung out in the main Inn and Carriage House. 

Before heading out to St. Paul’s Church for the ceremony, Megan and Paul spent a few quiet moments together for their first look.

Over at St. Paul’s Church, Monsignor Bob (affectionately called “Father Bob”) was the priest who performed Christian and Megan’s wedding ceremony and is from their hometown of Newtown, CT. 

He is also the priest who performed every funeral for those who were killed in the Sandy Hook school shooting in 2012.  Father Bob had reached the mandatory retirement age in the Catholic church and was supposed to retire from the priesthood a couple of years ago, but was granted an extension to allow him to delay his retirement so that he could perform the 10th anniversary of mass of Sandy Hook.  Because of this, his retirement was scheduled for early 2024, and Megan and Christian’s wedding was one of the last that he performed before his retirement. 

After the ceremony, school buses shuttled both the wedding party and guests back to the Inn at Manchester for an unforgettable evening of celebration!

A Wedding Reception Filled To The Brim With Sweet Details

Megan and Christian hosted their cocktail hour outside the charming Inn at Manchester’s Event Barn, complete with live music from the talented East Coast Soul and bespoke signature cocktails that were savored by guests. 

While guests said both were delicious, the Cucumber Margarita was a huge hit.  So much in fact, that Megan and Christian’s wedding planners, The Event Sisters,  ended up having to send someone to the grocery store to buy out all of the cucumbers, and one of the Inn’s managers just about killed their juicer trying to keep up with the demand for cucumber juice to make the drink’s simple syrup – ensuring there was never a lapse in guests getting their margaritas!  

The Event Barn’s interior underwent a remarkable transformation courtesy of The Event Sisters, The Linen Shop, Rain or Shine Tent and Event Co, and Megan’s Pinterest-worthy vision. Meghan had sourced mixed water glasses (clear and amber) to coordinate with the other glassware and votive candle holders, pulling in clear crystal and burnt amber glass colors across the tables.  These with the rich brown chargers gave the tables a warm and elegant feel to the table top decor.  Megan really thought through all of the details and made sure everything was elegant and beautiful in her planning! All of this, along with tasteful bistro lighting and sheer drapes, lent a magical ambiance to the occasion.

After Megan and Christian kicked things off with their first dance, the couple did a special grandparents’ dance – Christian with his grandmother and Megan with her grandfather – before their parent dances and officially opening the dance floor. (There was not a dry eye in sight!)

B&W Catering dished up delicious dishes to fuel guests for an evening of dancing, while Christian’s mom provided some desserts and Jenica of Fancy Pants Cakes created a beautiful 3-tiered cake that mimicked a birchwood tree, complete with carved initials.

For anyone looking for something extra to do, a photobooth by Equinox Photobooth was perfectly placed so that guests could get their picture taken while waiting in line for the bar. After the reception, remaining guests walked across the street to Mulligans to continue the celebration late into the night for the couple’s after-party. Congratulations, Megan and Christian, on your special wedding weekend!

Budding Creativity

An interactive element for guests during your wedding reception is always a win in our book! For their garden party wedding, the couple wanted to keep the day full with fun activities for guests of all ages.

Overflowing Florals

We are officially adding florals in water fountains to our Pinterest boards! This floral installation by  M’s Wedding Flowers is so romantic and unique. It was perfect as a colorful, dramatic backdrop for photos, or just a serene place to sip a cocktail and enjoy the view.
 

In our Lover Era

“Alexa, play ‘Love Story’ by Taylor Swift.” For a playful twist on a seating chart (that also doubled as favors!) the bride and groom handmade friendship bracelets for their guests. Complete with each guest’s name and charms, who wouldn’t love this?
 

Enchanted Tent

This beautiful tent reception executed by Jaclyn Watson Events is a dream come true! Twinkling string lights, rattan chandeliers and lavender draping created an enhancing ambience. Rock cairns scattered among florals added an earthy touch to the beautiful tables. 
 

Growing Love

We’re hoping ground floral arches continue to grow in popularity in 2024! This timeless ground floral arch by Anaphora Flowers is not only beautiful but also symbolic. The couple began their ceremony with an open semi-circle, and later in the ceremony, the couple’s mothers closed the circle around them to symbolize the unity in a marriage. Beautiful in style and meaning!
 

Colorful Romance

This wedding nailed the summer-meets-fall vibe, with a color palette that pops everywhere, from the cozy candles to the colorful ribbons on the bride and groom’s chairs.

This DIY Vermont Wedding Combined Cultural Traditions in a Beautiful Way

Love was in the air in when Savannah and Dr. James Liu tied the knot at Riverside Farm in Pittsfield, Vermont. Growing up, Savannah had always imagined a wedding in the picturesque state of Vermont where she was born and had spent countless summers. And with James by her side, her dreams finally came true in an unforgettable celebration surrounded by family and friends.

Creating Personal Touches with DIY Projects

When the Savannah and James began the wedding planning process, the most important thing to them was that the wedding weekend felt intentional and incorporated aspects from both American and Taiwanese culture. What better way to do this than to craft many of the elements themselves?

Let’s start with their handmade invitation suite. Savannah had the idea to incorporate postage stamps that nodded to different elements of their journey. These included stamps from Washington DC, where James proposed, to an ambulance, to reflect James’s career as a doctor. 

One of the biggest projects Savannah worked on was a Senbazuru display. Senbazuru, also known as one thousand cranes, is an origami display considered as a symbol of good health, happiness and long life. This display was a stunningly beautiful tribute to Taiwanese culture and added quite the wow-factor to their reception decor!

The color red was used throughout the day in floral arrangements and in Savannah’s reception dress. Red is considered a festive color in Taiwan, symbolizing good fortune and happiness, which makes it a popular choice for celebratory occasions. Classic ivory linens provided by The Linen Shop helped this bold hue truly shine in every design element. Savannah’s bridal makeup, done by Jennifer Perellie, not only complimented her traditional bridal gown, but also her red reception dress. (Love!)

The wedding celebration was a perfect blend of heartwarming speeches, lively dancing with 802 Events spinning the right records all night long and playful moments captured in the photo booth provided by Pixel Pod. As the night drew to a close, guests gathered to witness a dazzling fireworks display before bidding farewell to Savannah and James in a magical sparkler exit!

A Modern, Elegant Farm Wedding

High school sweethearts, Nicole and Kyle, recently tied the knot with a modern, elegant farm wedding at Isham Family Farm in Williston, Vermont. Surrounded by their closest family and friends, the couple declared their love for one another in an intimate ceremony that was filled with joy, laughter and super sweet details. From the beautiful mountain backdrop for their ceremony to the stunning first look photos, Nicole and Kyle’s special day was truly a magical celebration of their commitment to each other.

Special Details Made this Elegant Farm Wedding Even Sweeter

Nicole and Kyle are high school sweethearts who graduated from Mount Mansfield Union High School. It was important to the couple to tie in elements throughout the day that shared their story with their guests.

In their vows, both highlighted that they “grew up together” during their 8.5 years of dating and also incorporated their favorite date night activity (margaritas and tacos – yum!) by having a margarita seating chart and family-style Mexican feast.

We also want to highlight one of the sweetest and most sentimental details of the big day. Sadly, Nicole’s grandfather passed away two weeks prior to the wedding. He was a wedding photographer/videographer, and Nicole reserved his seat at the wedding with one of his beloved cameras. The couple’s wedding photographer, Bridget, thoughtfully proposed she take some wedding photos with it, too. The snap shots will undoubtedly be cherished photos for the entire family for generations to come.

First Look at Shelburne Farms

The couple decided to head to Shelburne Farms for their first look. Not only is this a gorgeous spot on Lake Champlain, but it was a nod to the numerous weekends the couple have spent at the Lake’s shores. It was another special detail the couple wound into their day to make it feel even more personal and unique to their love story!

Outdoor Summer Wedding at Isham Family Farm

Isham Family Farm is a historic 108 acre farm in Williston, Vermont. The beautifully restored barn and charming mountain views were the perfect quintessential Vermont backdrop to the couple’s big day.

(Worth noting: The Farm is a working farm that can easily become a part of your lifetime of celebrations beyond your wedding! Many couples come back with their growing families to pick berries in the summer, select pumpkins in the fall, or to cut their own family Christmas Tree around the holidays.)

Congrats Nicole and Kyle!

Colorful Summer Wedding at the Wilburton Inn

Sarah and Noah knew immediately they wanted to get married in Vermont. It’s where their love story began, after all. They visited several venues in the area, but as soon as they arrived at The Wilburton Inn, they know they found the perfect spot for them. Sarah describes it as beautiful and a little quirky with lots of space to gather with their friends and family for days of festivities. After delaying their wedding in 2020, it was more important than ever to bring everyone in their lives together to celebrate their love and have Hannah Photography capture their beautiful day!

Outdoor Wedding at The Wilburton Inn

The Wilburton Inn in Manchester, VT offers gorgeous panoramic mountain views, plenty of outdoor space, and specializes in destination weddings. Sarah and Noah wanted to ensure their wedding felt joyous and fun from start to finish. They did just that by incorporating beautiful, bright colorful flowers wherever they could! The floral arch for their ceremony and the bride’s bouquet from Birds of a Flower was especially stunning! The bridesmaids also all wore different colored dresses. 

If you are planning a Vermont wedding, the bride passed along some advice for couples. Sarah says, “plan a moment of quiet for just you and your partner after the wedding ceremony.” It was the perfect little stillness that was just their own and so special to them. 

Lively, Dance Centered Tented Reception

This couple LOVES the dance floor so it was a top priority to have the best time dancing with everyone at their reception. The Grift provided a great soundtrack as well as the most infectious energy! The version of the hora they played was particularly enthusiastic, definitely one of the best the team at the Wilburton had ever seen! 

As for the shirtless dance that is featured in so many photos, it is actually a Middlebury tradition with their college friends: you take your shirt off whenever “Like a Prayer” by Madonna comes on! And as for the lift… “We like practice what we call our ‘party tricks’ around the house when we’re bored,” says Sarah (who used to be a dancer). “That lift was from a show I was in college. We obviously had to pull out our best party trick for the dance floor!” This party looks like an absolute blast!

Congratulations, Sarah and Noah on you Vermont wedding!
