In the ever changing world of wedding trends, let’s take a look at some of the up and coming trends for 2024 and 2025 that are sure to add a unique flair to your wedding day.


Seated Bridal Parties

Gone are the days of bridesmaids and groomsmen standing by your side at the altar.  In the next 18 months, we will see more bridal parties seated on the first or second row.  It makes for a much more intimate ceremony, and allows them to be much more comfortable during the ceremony (especially for those who would have been standing in high heels), and able to sit with their spouse or significant other.  It’s a small change to the traditional bridal party placement, but it makes for unique photos and will for sure keep your guests talking.

At The Ostreum, one of the ways we’ve seen this incorporated is to have your ceremony in the round.  The seating can be adjusted to accommodate your bridal party and immediate family on the front row, and you and your fiance can be the center of attention under our gorgeous ceremony chandelier.  Line the aisle and altar with candles for a dreamy ceremony!

On-site Content Creator

Content creation is exactly what it sounds like.  Along with their photographer and videographer team, couples have also chosen to hire a social media content creator to capture those behind the scenes shots and content to post to the couple’s Instagram and TikTok.  A content creator is typically with you from the minute you step foot into the venue until the last sparkler goes out at your grand exit, capturing all the unique moments, unexpected surprises, and everything in between.  It’s a totally different approach than the photo and video team, and this wedding trend could potentially make your wedding go viral!


Champagne Towers

The champagne tower is a timeless symbol at wedding celebrations, originating in France in the 18th century.  We love that this wedding trend is making a comeback in 2024!  For most couples, a champagne tower is a great way to signify that the party is about to start, while other couples choose to do a champagne tower at some point during the cocktail hour.  Either way, the elegance and indulgence of a champagne tower is sure to wow your guests.

We’ve had several couples with champagne towers at The Ostreum, and have learned a thing or two about how to make them successful.  Be sure to use coupe glasses instead of traditional champagne glasses.  Don’t build the tower too high, or you might not be able to reach it to pour the champagne.  And plan to put something under the table the champagne tower is on – champagne will get all over the floor and be quite sticky for your guests.

Ostreum is Latin for oyster, and what’s inside an oyster?  A pearl.  Something so beautiful and timeless that of course it’s making its way back into wedding decor.  From adding pearls to the bouquets, to wearing an heirloom pearl necklace or earrings, to putting pearls on the wedding cake – pearls bring a sense of sophistication and stylish elegance to any part of the wedding day.

We like to think that the inside of The Ostreum is our “pearl”, and with our unique modern, industrial style, The Ostreum can bring that next level of indulgence that a pearl would on your wedding day.

Unique Seating Arrangements

Traditional seating arrangements are being revamped, and lounge furniture is taking over!  The popularity of these arrangements offers a more relaxed atmosphere for your guests and create spaces for mingling and conversation.  Add a custom neon sign above it and you’ve got a great photo booth spot as well.  We’ve also found many grandparents cozying up on the lounge furniture while the dance floor is full of the couple’s friends and family.

At The Ostreum, our in-house lounge furniture options are ever changing, and we have several lounge sets you can choose from as an upgrade to your package.  Chat with our staff about your options!
