Ideas for a modern wedding
If you're a modern bride, you are all about what's trending. We have rounded up some fabulous and trending details for a stunning modern wedding! When selecting your contemporary color palette, your sleek venue, modern bridesmaid gowns and even your centerpieces, these ideas and tips are ones you won't want to miss!
Classic modern color palettes
Modern weddings typically have this sharp edge to them, with sleek and modern furniture, unusual and cutting-edge centerpieces and clean, refined color palettes. Black and white is a classic modern color palette, lending a formality and chic elegance to your big day that is sure to take your modernity to the next level. A twist on this modern color combo could be to add in a burst of bold yellow or light green.
The Knot revealed a different modern color palette that can add a cool elegance to your big day as well: red, teal and white! We love this color palette and its freshness will have your modern wedding shining before you even take your first steps down the aisle.
After perusing the modern wedding Pinterest boards, we found another magnificently modern color palette that we just had to share. Consider using rich purple and bold turquoise to dress up neutral tones of grey. A striking color palette like this will make for a vibrant eye-pleaser!
One way to use this color palette for your modern centerpieces is to pair lush purple blooms such as freesias, gladiolas or hyacinths in opaque turquoise vases. You could also use this color palette for your bridesmaid dresses, choosing a cropped teal or turquoise gown with a deep purple sash! And for your tablescapes in your reception venue, use the sleek grey color for your table cloths and accent your tables with a bold purple table runner! You can then dress your table up with turquoise napkins and keep the elegance of your modern event by using white or off-white plates! Choose square-shaped plates for that extra modern touch!
Oh-so modern style
When going about planning and executing your modern day, keep in mind that the style is key! Modern style is all about streamlined designs, and The Knot suggests using neutral hues and dressing your big day up with "of-the-moment details!" This is one of the reasons that many modern wedding color palettes incorporate white tones. The white makes your colored accents pop even more and brings that clean flair to your final presentation. You don't need over-the-top details to make your wedding day shine – a chic minimalist style will always have you looking refined and sophisticated no matter what details you choose to accent the day with!
Location, location, location
A fabulous way to pull your whole modern wedding together is through your choice of venue. A modern trend has brides choosing less obvious or ornate settings and instead opting for large open spaces. Great venues for a modern wedding include modern art museums or galleries, warehouses, lofts, city rooftops for a modern urban flair and top floors of high-rise buildings. Christine Paul of New York City's Christine Paul Events told The Knot that some of the best things to look for while scouting out the perfect modern venue are spaces with many windows, mirrors, exposed brick and cement floors. It also doesn't hurt to find a spot with high ceilings! You are sure to shine in such a minimalist environment!
