New 2024 Winnipeg Wedding Trends

New 2024 Winnipeg Wedding Trends

This weekend was the 2024 Wonderful Wedding Show at the RBC Convention Centre in Winnipeg and we spent an afternoon visiting with some friend-ors (thats vendors that are friends ;)) and getting new ideas for our upcoming wedding couples. As soon as we got home, I knew I had to put together a list of our predictions for the 2024 Winnipeg wedding trends because dang are they some fun new experiences available!

If you’ve already booked your wedding with us, we’ve given you a long list of our preferred vendors for everything from catering to planning to florals. We’ll save highlighting them for another post. Today I want to chat about new ideas to add to your summer camp / festival / market vibe wedding here at Wild Skies.

These are in no particular order, just the fun new wedding or elopement details that caught my eye on Saturday.

  1. Perk Mobile Coffee Bar
    Mobile Espresso Bar complete with pastries on the morning of your wedding? YES PLEASE!
  2. Good Neighbour Brewing Beer Cart
    I sampled their spruce tip beer and was hooked. But also – they’re the first all female + LBGTQ+ owned Brewery in Manitoba and that’s dang cool.
  3. Chaeban Ice Cream Cart
    Maybe we’re biased since Rene and I had our first date at Chaeban – but who doesn’t love ice cream on a hot summer day?!
  4. Kyu Grill Food Truck and Extreme Fries
    Just more food trucks in general, k thanks.
  5. Pop Cart
    Again – who can resist? A great option for couples who aren’t all into cake. Reach out and I’ll hook you up with a discount code!
  6. Set the Bar
    Pretty much anything you can think of from S’mores to Nachos – they’ll hook you up!
  7. Honoured Alternatives
    Ainsley’s tagline is ‘The Wedding Witch of Winnipeg’ and that’s all you need to know!
  8. Union Table
    We’re long time lovers of Union Table but had to include them on this list because so many of you still don’t know about them! Our couples also get a preferred rate!
  9. Melanie Bird Art
    Preserve your florals forever with one of Melanie’s watercolour paintings!
  10. Origin Handcrafted
    Rings made from forged carbon, antler, wood + more natural materials.
  11. Signs of Bloom
    We just love all things floral around here.
  12. A Spoon Full of Sugar Child Minders
    Hiring a wedding nanny sounds like a no-brainer to me!
  13. Mad Social Agency
    Wedding content creation is all the rage – hop on the train now to beat the rush!

    A few honourable mentions that weren’t at the show but we love having them out at the resort :

    * Slushie machine rental from Party Stuff for some tropical cocktail mixin’.
    * Movie night (rent our projector + theatre popcorn maker!)
    * Wedding Piñata (pictured above!)
    * Tattoo Pop-up Bar! (our fave is Jann’s House!)
