10 ways to create the modern wedding of your dreams
Clean lines, elegant décor, and effortlessly chic details – a modern wedding is the perfect beginning to a real-life fairytale. Here are 10 ways to create the modern wedding of your dreams.
1. A Vine Backdrop
Loosely arranged vines on a wall make a simple and fresh backdrop throughout the wedding space. Use them for the wedding ceremony, behind the couple’s sweetheart table, or as a photo booth backdrop in a designated area.
2. A Chic Escort Card Table
Pretty silk flowers like white roses, orchids, and hydrangeas arranged in clear, tall glass vases create clean lines while floating candles add warm candlelight to this escort card table.
3. White On White
Nothing says modern like white on white. Keep the look from being austere by working with a variety of textures and materials: linen, glass, silver, and porcelain on a tablescape capped by lush hydrangeas, white phalaenopsis orchids, and white calla lilies in clear glass cylinder vases.
4. Hanging Plants
Create a fresh and airy dining table by laying out a simple white linen tablecloth and suspending a bundle of gathered greens like, eucalyptus, ivy, or ferns, above the table.
5. A Bold Splash Of Color
Large ghostwood branches spray-painted in bright neon hues make for unexpected and refreshing wedding centerpieces. Place one branch in the center of the table and keep the rest of the tablescape white for the most eye-catching effect.
6. Metallic Branches
Another modern twist on the classic look: arrange blooming branches gilded in silver and gold in shiny mercury glass vases. Finish each place setting with a single, gold-painted flower set on top of a white napkin and plate, to complete the style.
7. Bright Color
White certainly can mean modern, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only color that should have all the fun. For a long reception table, create a nonfloral centerpiece with these DIY, striped candles. Use pillar candles of varying heights with a mix of color hues. Use white linens and plates, clear glass, and modern flatware on the table and put the candles in a tray in the center for a dynamic burst of color.
8. Disco Balls
Disco balls may recall retro rollerskating rinks, but when hung in clusters above the dance floor, they take on a very 21st-century life.
9. Sparkling Gems
Candy gemstones in bright colors are cool and modern embellishment on a wedding cake. Play up the jewels, and color, on your dessert table with crystal cake stands and crystal pillar holders filled with candy and decorated cookies. Finish with crystal diamonds scattered across the table.
10. Wedding Lanterns
For a final exit or evening affair, light paths, steps, or stairs outside of the venue with glass lanterns and floating candles.
