5 Rising Trends of Gen-Z Couple Weddings

Are you a Gen-Z couple getting ready to tie the knot? As the younger generation begins to enter the marriage scene, we are seeing a shift in wedding trends. From film style photography to unique wedding themes and eco-friendly choices, Gen-Z couples are breaking away from traditional wedding customs and creating a wedding day that showcases their individuality. In this blog post, we'll highlight some of the rising trends for Gen-Z couples to help inspire your special day.

  1. 🎞  📸 Film Style Wedding Photography

One trend that has gone viral on TikTok is film-style wedding photography. Gen-Z couples prefer the look of 35mm or disposable cameras for a vintage and nostalgic feel. Direct flash is also becoming popular, giving off a cool and candid paparazzi vibe. This style of photography creates a raw and emotional atmosphere that is perfect for capturing the genuine moments of your wedding day.

  1. 💃 🪩 Unique Wedding Themes

Gen-Z couples like to showcase their individuality by giving their wedding a unique theme. From a Barbie wedding theme to a Woodland Fairy Wedding, the possibilities are endless. A themed wedding adds an element of creativity and fun to your special day, allowing you to personalise every detail to your liking. Choose a theme that resonates with you and your partner to make your wedding stand out.

  1. 🪸 🎉 Non-Traditional Wedding Colours

The concept of a "white wedding" is becoming outdated for Gen-Z couples. Instead, they are opting for non-traditional colours such as black, emerald green, and bold jewel tones. These colours create a unique and modern look for your wedding day. Consider incorporating your chosen colour scheme into your wedding dress, cake, and décor for a cohesive and stunning overall look.

  1. 🌱 💚 Eco-Friendly Choices

Sustainability is on the rise for Gen-Z couples. They are more conscious of the environment and are opting for eco-friendly choices. Simple changes such as using recyclable materials for décor and opting for a plant-based menu can make a big impact. Check out our previous blog post "Say "I Do" to Eco-Friendly Summer Wedding Ideas" for more inspiration on how to have a sustainable wedding.

  1. 💍 🫧 Non-Traditional Ring Choices

Non-traditional ring choices are also rising in popularity for Gen-Z couples. Round cut diamonds are not for everyone, so we are seeing a trend in radiant cut and coloured diamonds like pink and green. Gemstones such as teal sapphires are also a popular choice, adding a pop of colour to your engagement ring. Look to our gallery for more inspiration on unique engagement ring options.



As Gen-Z couples begin to enter the marriage scene, we are seeing a shift in wedding trends. From vintage film style photography to unique wedding themes, non-traditional colours, eco-friendly choices, and non-traditional ring choices, couples are breaking away from traditional wedding customs and creating personal and meaningful wedding experiences. Use these trends to inspire and personalize your wedding day to make it truly special.
