Trends in Beach Weddings for 2024-2025


As we stand in the newness of 2024, one can’t help but wonder – how will the gentle lull of ocean waves and the serene beauty of the beach continue to shape the dreams of future newlyweds?

In a look ahead, we explore the evolving trends in beach weddings as they ebb and flow into 2024 and 2025. From sustainability’s rising tide to the digital wave reshaping how we celebrate, consider the future of saying “I do” against the backdrop of the endless sea.

Back to Nature – Eco-Chic Weddings

Eco-conscious weddings are making a splash! Couples are embracing sustainability, from biodegradable confetti to locally-sourced seafood. Think recycled paper for invitations, solar-powered fairy lights, and decorations that whisper “Mother Nature approved”. And let’s not forget about the attire – organic fabrics for dresses and suits are not just stylish, they’re also kinder to our planet. Sustainability is a wave we’re all riding together.

Intimate and Personal – Micro Weddings

Gone are the days when bigger meant better. Intimate beach weddings are the new “it” thing. Imagine a sunset ceremony with your nearest and dearest, the ocean as your soundtrack. Micro weddings allow for more personalized experiences, from bespoke menus to handwritten vows that will make even the seagulls tear up. And let’s be real, an intimate setting means less stress and more time to soak in every moment. After all, love isn’t measured by the guest list!

Tech Touches – Virtual Reality and Drones

Now, let’s talk tech. Virtual reality and drones? Absolutely! Imagine live-streaming your wedding for those who can’t make it to the beach. Or how about drone photography that captures the majestic ocean backdrop in all its glory? These tech trends are not just cool, they’re about creating inclusive and breathtaking experiences. And for the record, if your drone can bring us a cocktail, you’re definitely doing 2024 right!

Foodie Paradise – Local and Seasonal Delights

Foodies, rejoice! The beach wedding menus of 2024-2025 are all about local and seasonal fare. Think fresh seafood, tropical fruits, and dishes that tell a story about Myrtle Beach’s rich culinary heritage. Interactive food stations, where guests can watch their meals being prepared, are also on the rise. We’re not just talking about any meal here. It’s an experience – a journey of flavors that complement the salt in the air and the sand between your toes.

As we sail towards the horizon of 2024-2025 wedding season, one thing is clear – beach weddings are evolving in beautiful, sustainable, and intimate ways. At Coastal Elegance, we believe every wedding, just like every couple, is unique. Whether you’re eco-conscious, tech-savvy, a food lover, or all about intimacy, your wedding will be a reflection of your personal love story.
