If you want to plan a modern wedding day, you’ve come to the right place! So many people are going for vintage style/shabby chic weddings, that the modern wedding has taken a back seat. However, if you want a wedding that’s different from this rest, this could be the perfect idea for you! Take a look and see what you think:
Ice sculptures aren’t including in many weddings. I mean, they can be a little pricey. However, they look amazing and are perfect for a modern wedding. You can have virtually any sculpture you like, so make sure you think about themes before you splash out on one. You can have hearts, rings, a bride and groom and more. This will definitely make your wedding day stand out!
A Modern Cake
What’s a modern cake? Modern cakes aren’t as fussy with icing as other cakes. However, they may have a geometric print, and even some coloured elements. I’ve seen a ton of modern cakes that look really cool. In fact, lots of people are making their cake so modern that it isn’t even becoming a cake anymore – it’s a load of cupcakes or a giant Battenberg.
A unique bouquet contains gorgeous flowers that you rarely see at weddings. Some of them are colourful, and some of them are plain. However, you can consider dressing them up with pretty metallic, and even things like buttons! This adds an element of fun to your bouquet and will definitely make you stand out. Some modern bouquets aren’t even made from flowers, but pearls and other materials instead. If you want a bouquet without the price tag, make some flowers from paper!
An A Line Gown
There are so many pretty gowns out there, but the A-line gown tops them all for modern wedding dresses. A clean cut, crisp white dress is perfect for a modern wedding day. You could even go for something totally out of tradition, and go for a shorter dress rather than a long princess dress! Try some on to see what you think. Overly lacy gowns give off too much of a vintage vibe, so if you’re going for a modern day wedding, opt for something slightly different!
A modern wedding needs contemporary and modern invitations to set the tone for the day. I always find that people take a lot from the invitations. If you send out vintage style invitations, they will expect a vintage style wedding.
Weddings are becoming less and less about all of the flowers, or so I’ve read. In fact, they’re becoming more about greenery than anything else! Have greenery in your bouquet, and decorate it to create a really earthy feel in your venue. It looks amazing and adds a nice ‘natural’ touch to the décor.
