What REP Thinks of the 2024 Wedding Trends

Wedding trends are constantly changing and evolving, and can be frustrating to keep up on…especially if you are one of the many couples planning a wedding with a longer engagement.  Trends can switch up quickly. Which trends are worth sticking to, skipping over, or having a happy medium? Keep reading for our input!

  • Disposable Cameras – Disposable cameras are a fun idea, but why have to purchase multiple cameras that cost roughly $13 give or take per camera and then have to develop the film costing roughly $10-$20 per camera. When you add the total cost up that you are spending on disposable cameras, it would be worth looking into having a modern day photobooth at your wedding. REP Photobooths can take photos, videos, boomerangs, and GIFs. You have the ability to retake the capture as many times as you wish until you get the perfect one. Each capture gets sent straight to you by either text or email, where you can then choose to either keep it on your phone or get the photos printed for significantly cheaper. The clients get an album with all the captures from the night, so there is no worry of lost cameras laying around!  Something to consider when deciding between the disposable cameras or a photobooth is how much money are you willing to spend on the details of your wedding? 
  • Live Music – Depending on the vibe you are looking for, this can be an awesome way to interact with your guests. At REP, we have guitarists, vocalists, and a saxophonist that can turn your event into a unique experience. We can even wrap it up in your contract to have a DJ and live music together or just the live music. We have always seen great outcomes in people who choose to add live music to their event. Whatever your vision is, REP is here to help bring it to life!
  • Audio Guestbooks (phones) – You can take out this extra cost and utilize the video on the REP Photobooth for people to leave you messages. REP Photobooths is a service offered that provides people with interactive fun! The photobooth can take photos, videos, boomerangs, and GIFs. Placing the photobooth near the entrance where guests come in with an operator is a great way to capture each guest as a unique form of a guestbook!
  • Destination Weddings – Yes! Yes! Yes! Depending on your lifestyle, vision, and where you are at in the wedding planning process, it may make the most sense to have a destination wedding. Whether it be in a different town in Michigan that is new to you, Mackinac Island, or a resort in Mexico, REP can come with! Sometimes booking vendors in the location that your destination wedding is can be extremely stressful due to language barriers, time change, and lack of communication because of the distance. Don’t let that push you back from your dream day. Book with REP and we can make it work through phone calls, in-person meetings, Zoom calls, meetings with the venue to make sure we are all on the same page, and anything else it takes to bring your vision to life.
  • Private Vows – We love any aspect of weddings that really fits your personal style. If you and your significant other are private, reserved people then private vows can be the perfect match for you. Don’t overlook that maybe one day you will want to listen back on the special vows you had for each other. At REP, we can hook you up to mics that will record your vows for you to have as a keepsake forever.

Unique Reception Venues – Your wedding venue that you choose sets the tone and expectation of the wedding. Classy, casual, simplistic, or complex. Choosing a wedding venue that is unique can be a great way to stand apart from other weddings, but also be a fun way to show your personality through the venue. Don’t let a unique layout immediately turn you away. REP can help you figure out the best way to set up for the best sound quality with our expert DJ’s and Engineers. Your vision is our vision and we will help bring it to life!
