On the first episode of season 4 of our wedding podcast, Project Engaged, we chat to Melany McBride and Amy Parfett, the creators of award-winning online marketplace, Wedshed!
Wedshed connects engaged couples with unique venues and talented vendors.
Amy and Mel have just launched a book, Get Wed – a one-way pass to getting hitched with maximum vibes and minimum stress. The book is an incredibly practical guide offering so many useful tips for modern couples who want to do their day the right way.
Wedding trends for 2024 and beyond
On this episode we chat to Amy and Mel about a number of hot wedding trends they predict, from micro weddings to the anti-DIY movement, as well as other fun things we’re loving seeing at weddings, including:
- “B.C.E” (Big Couple Energy) for maximum good vibes.
- The rise of digital gift registries like Gravy. Guests can make contributions towards meaningful things like house deposits or IVF treatments. They can also make non-monetary pledges (eg. pet-sitting while the couple are on their honeymoon).
- Wedding formalities and traditions becoming more a reflection of real life. Some examples are uneven wedding, mixed-gender wedding parties, or both parents walking the bride/groom/couple down the aisle. Or no aisle walk at all, just the couple both greeting guests on arrival!
- The “done-for-you” trend – a backlash against the DIY movement!
