Summer Weddings 2024: Vibrant Florals Set the Tone for Unforgettable Events


As summer settles in and wedding season begins to reach its peak, there’s an undeniable feeling in the air—a harmonious blend of great times, good music and the sweet scent of blooming flowers. In 2024, one of the standout trends defining these joyous events is the explosion of color in floral arrangements. From sunlit yellows to fiery oranges, soothing lavenders to lush greens, this season’s weddings are embracing nature’s palette in bold and beautiful ways.

Embracing Color: A Sign of a Great Party

In the world of weddings, flowers are more than mere party accoutrements—they are storytellers, setting the mood and ambiance of the celebration. The colors chosen for floral arrangements often reflect the couple’s personalities, the theme of the wedding, and the emotions they wish to inspire. This summer, the trend towards vibrant hues speaks volumes about the spirit of these gatherings: they are lively, celebratory, and filled with warmth.

A sure sign of a memorable wedding is the presence of great flowers, which we love to create at KLW. When guests enter a venue adorned with exuberant floral displays, they immediately sense the festive atmosphere. Bright yellows bring a sense of sunshine and happiness, while blazing oranges ignite passion and energy. Soft lavenders evoke tranquility and romance, and verdant greens symbolize growth and new beginnings. Together, these colors create a visual symphony that captivates and enchants everyone present. Who doesn’t want to party? Your version of this could be chit-chatting and enjoying a spritz, or toasting champs with old friends or getting down the black and white checkered dance floor.

Trends in 2024: From Iconic Venues to Private Estates

This year, weddings are taking place in a variety of stunning locations, from iconic city venues with jaw-dropping views in Brooklyn, New York to sprawling private estates in the sleepy beach town of Watch Hill, Rhode Island. Each setting offers its own unique charm and provides a canvas upon which couples can paint their dream wedding and we at KLW happily oblige.

Iconic Venues: Urban chic meets timeless elegance as couples choose renowned venues that boast history and grandeur. From historic ballrooms with ornate ceilings to modern spaces with panoramic city views, these venues provide a sophisticated backdrop against which vibrant floral arrangements pop with brilliance.

Private Estates: On the other end of the spectrum, many couples are opting for the intimacy and exclusivity of private estates. Surrounded by lush gardens or overlooking serene landscapes, these venues offer a sense of seclusion and personalization. Here, vibrant florals blend harmoniously with the natural beauty of the surroundings, creating a picturesque setting straight out of a fairytale.

The Rise of Colorful Palettes and Whimsical Patterns

In 2024, weddings are embracing bold and unexpected color palettes. Couples are moving away from traditional  pastels, opting instead for combinations that are daring and delightful. Imagine a bouquet of garlic scapes, cheerful yellows and orange tulips, or centerpieces bursting with coral peonies and baby blue delphiniums. These vibrant combinations not only catch the eye but also infuse weddings with a sense of fun and playfulness.

Alongside colorful palettes, whimsical patterns are making a splash in wedding décor. From table linens adorned with botanical prints to bridesmaids’ dresses in bold floral patterns, these elements add a touch of whimsy and personality to the wedding. Couples are embracing the idea of mixing and matching textures and designs, creating visual interest and depth that captivate guests and leave a lasting impression.

Capturing the Essence: Photography and Memories

In the midst of all the color and festivity, wedding photographers play a crucial role in capturing the essence of these celebrations. It’s important to mindfully book your photographer. They artfully document not only the intricate details of floral arrangements but also the candid moments of joy and connection shared among loved ones. Each photograph becomes a cherished memory, preserving the beauty and emotion of the day for years to come.

In the end, a sign of a truly great wedding party lies not only in the lavishness of its décor but in the warmth of its atmosphere and the sincerity of its hosts and guest. And in 2024, the abundance of colorful flowers serves as a radiant symbol of love, hope, and the promise of new beginnings.
