Creating a Modern Wedding for a Modern Couple
Are you and your partner techies? Do you simply prefer the look of clean lines and neutral colors? Whatever you reason for considering yourselves a modern couple, there are plenty of ideas if you’d like to incorporate it into your wedding day.
Start With the Colors
Today’s modern color trends lean towards a minimalist look. Black and white is a modern color combination while still paying tribute to classic wedding dress and tuxedo combinations. Shades of gray, tan, peach and other neutral colors are also very popular in modern color palettes. Customize it by choosing one or two colors to add into the theme. Use the bolder tones for flowers, a pair of shoes or a focal wedding decoration.
Design Unique Centerpieces
The wedding décor is the perfect place to show off your modern theme. Traditional weddings typically use flowers and other very feminine centerpieces, but you can design something with a unisex feel to better match your theme. For a natural look, fill glass vases with various fruits. As a bonus, you could even let the guests take some home when they leave. Other ideas include bowls of marbles, gemstones, crystals or other pretty, reflective items. For something truly modern minimalist, choose simple glass vases. Make the bride and groom table’s centerpiece special by etching names and dates into the glass.
Add Your Theme to Your Invitations
Like most couples, you probably want to incorporate your theme into your save the dates and invitations. Many couples who create modern wedding invitations choose to skip the traditional script fonts or fancy wording. Instead, personalize your work with one modern font for the focal point of your invitation, and then use a smaller, basic one for your information. A single piece of card stock paper keeps things sleek and has the added bonus of being more affordable to mail than bulkier invitations. Your invitations will truly be yours.
